SURPRISE, Ariz.--Lance Berkman and Adrian Beltre both participated in running drills on Saturday and performed well according to Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington.

"They're still going to be slow paced," Washington said about the gradual ramp up toward their returns. "They got out of it well. They felt good. This is by design in making sure Berkman is ready and Beltre as well."

Washington wouldn't reveal a return date for Berkman until he first informs his new designated hitter. Berkman said he is eyeing Wednesday, as the day he'll make his Rangers debut.

Both players will participate in running drills again on Sunday.

Other injury notes:

RHP Wilmer Font will throw a bullpen session off the mound tomorrow for the first time since being shut down a week ago with biceps tendonitis in his shoulder.

RHP Kyle McClellan will throw a bullpen session today after being sidelined for two days with general soreness in his right shoulder.

RHP Joakim Soria remains on track to throw a 45-pitch bullpen session on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. He has thrown three, 30-pitch sessions this spring, as the 2-time All Star continues rehab from Tommy John surgery. Washington said his reliever remains on schedule with their internally targeted return date.

RHP Tanner Scheppers will receive rest due to mild left hamstring tightness.

OF Engel Beltre will miss a second straight day with a sore left shoulder.
