Soria could join Rangers pen by weekend
|Rangers pitcher Robbie Ross joins Chuck Cooperstein, Matt Mosley, and Glenn "Stretch" Smith on Galloway and Company to discuss the Rangers' series against the Mariners.
"He's getting close," Rangers manager Ron Washington said.
Soria will make his sixth rehab appearance Wednesday. He hasn't pitched in the big leagues since the 2011 season. He left a spring training appearance with the Kansas City Royals on March 18, 2012, due to pain in his right elbow. He had surgery April 3.
Soria had 160 saves in 180 chances with the Royals for an 88.9 percentage, fourth best in the major leagues since 1969 (minimum 180 save opportunities).
