SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Rangers right-handers Miles Mikolas and Shawn Tolleson resumed their throwing programs Saturday after being evaluated and cleared by team physician Shane Seroyer.

Mikolas (elbow) and Tolleson (shoulder), who had each missed the past few days because of the injuries, showed no structural damage, assistant general manager Thad Levine said.

With an impressive spring, either Mikolas or Tolleson could earn one of the Rangers' final bullpen spots.

In other injury news, center fielder Leonys Martin remains day to day with back soreness, and left-hander Rafael Perez is slated to throw live batting practice Saturday after missing a few days with a right hamstring strain.

Perez, who last pitched in the Majors for the Indians in 2012, signed a Minor League deal with a Spring Training invite in January.
