Player Notes
Michael Kirkman (shoulder) is scheduled to throw his first bullpen session of the spring on Wednesday.

Advice: Good news for Kirkman, who has fallen behind the other pitchers in camp due to an impingement in the back of his left shoulder. The 28-year-old southpaw was non-tendered by the Rangers in December, but he's in camp this spring as a non-roster invitee.

Michael Kirkman (shoulder) is not yet symptom-free and remains limited to flat-ground work.

Advice: Kirkman is dealing with an impingement in his left shoulder. That he's able to do any throwing at all is obviously positive, but the Rangers will feel better about his status once he's able to throw from the bump again with no problems.

Advice: Kirkman was shut down last week due to an impingement in the back of his left shoulder. He showed significant improvement Monday. "My range of motion is a lot better than a few days ago," said the right-hander. "It's almost back to normal. It may be normal."

Michael Kirkman won't throw for the next week due to a sore left shoulder.

Advice: It sounds like it's probably just some typical early-spring soreness, but the Rangers want to be safe. Kirkman re-signed with the Rangers on a minor league deal this winter after being non-tendered.
