LHP Marin Perez posted his third consecutive win in Texas' 15-3 victory over Seattle on Saturday night. Perez walked just one, giving up three earned runs and striking out five batters.

RHP Neftali Feliz is scheduled to continue his rehab assignment with Triple-A Round Rock and is scheduled to throw an inning.

RHP Yu Darvish was perfect through 5 2/3 innings and carried a no-hitter through 7 1/3 in his last start coming against the Astros. Darvish returns to the mound in a scheduled start against the Mariners on Sunday, a team that has trouble with the right-hander at Rangers Ballpark, Darvish is 3-0 at home vs. Seattle (3-3 overall) and carries a 2.75 ERA in his career against the club. Darvish had made two starts against Seattle this year and is 1-1 with a 2.08 ERA.

RHP Nick Tepesch (right elbow inflammation) threw a 25-pitch bullpen session on Friday and Texas said the right-hander is scheduled to work another on Monday.

RHP Alexi Ogando (right shoulder soreness) will miss his scheduled start on Monday. The Rangers announced that Ogando should just miss one start and that he had an injection in his right shoulder on Saturday morning. Ogando complained of soreness in his shoulder after Tuesday's start and underwent a CT scan on Wednesday. Matt Garza will replace Ogando, pitching on a regular five days of rest.
