Injured Rangers Kinsler, Lewis have setbacks

The Texas Rangers will have to wait longer to get back right-hander Colby Lewis and second baseman Ian Kinsler.

General manager Jon Daniels said Wednesday that Lewis has been pulled off his rehabilitation assignment because of muscular soreness in his elbow. Lewis had surgery last July to repair a torn flexor tendon in his elbow.

Kinsler has been out since May 18 with bruised ribs and hasn't taken part in baseball activities since. Daniels says Kinsler has developed a stress reaction in his ribs and has a "level of discomfort where he can't play."

Right-hander Alexi Ogando is set to make a rehab start Friday at Double-A Frisco. He has been out with right biceps tendinitis, but could be back in the Rangers rotation next week if all goes well.
