ARLINGTON -- Jim Adduci, who has been on the disabled list since April 19 with a broken pinkie on his left hand, is scheduled to begin a medical rehab assignment on Saturday with Double-A Frisco. He'll play five games with Frisco and then be re-evaluated.
Adduci was 6-for-13 at the time he broke his finger. Adduci can play both outfield and first base. But he has been getting extensive work at first base lately and that could be where he gets much of his playing time when he returns. Rangers first baseman Carlos Pena was hitting .137 with one home run and two RBIs in 16 games going into Friday.
Pitcher Derek Holland, who is still recovering from offseason surgery on his left knee, threw another bullpen on Friday but still hasn't been tested lately on his fielding. The Rangers haven't set a date on when he will be going on medical rehab assignment.
