Thursday update: Kouzmanoff, Figueroa, Feliz, Choo
Uodates from Rangers GM Jon Daniels on Thursday
Kevin Kouzmanoff is flying back to Texas to have his back examined by Dr. Drew Dosset. Kouzmanoff has not improved as much as the Rangers expected and they want to get a better idea of his situation before Adrian Beltre is activated off disabled list. Kouzmanoff has a history of back trouble.
Pedro Figueroa has a torn ligament and flexor tendon in his left elbow. He is expected to undergo Tommy John elbow reconstruction surgery next week.
Neftali Feliz was examined by Dr. Keith Meister on Thursday. He is dealing with general soreness in his right elbow but there are no structural issues in the ligaments and tendons. He is going on the Minor League disabled list and will likely resume a throwing program later this week.
Shin-Soo Choo is reporting some improvement in his sprained left ankle. The Rangers are hopeful he can avoid the disabled list.
