ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - The Texas Rangers have no plans to place
closer Frank Francisco on the disabled list for a second time this season.
Francisco hasn't pitched in 10 days -- but Manager Ron Washington says he wants to see how he does in a bullpen session Sunday.
The right-hander hasn't pitched since June 3 when the Rangers played the New York Yankees. He was on the 15-day disabled list last month because of right biceps tendinitis.
Meanwhile, Texas threw consecutive shutouts at home for the first time since 1981. One came last night against the Los Angeles Dodgers. The other came Thursday against Toronto.
Francisco didn't throw any on Saturday.
