Rangers' LHP Harrison dealing with sore lower back
The Rangers said Monday that Harrison had been kept out of on-field team activities for two days since pitching Saturday against the Los Angeles Angels.
The left-hander's scheduled bullpen session between starts is Tuesday.
For now, the team says Harrison is scheduled to make his next start Thursday when the Rangers open a series at Seattle.
Harrison (0-2, 8.44 ERA) started the March 31 season opener at Houston. He got a new $55 million, five-year contract in January.
In Saturday's start against the Angels, Harrison gave up a pair of two-run homers in the first inning and allowed five runs in five innings.
