The Rangers learned Thursday that Cashner, signed as a free agent during the winter, is unlikely to be ready for Opening Day because of a lingering biceps injury. Cashner, however, was back in camp Sunday after visiting a vascular specialist. The 30-year-old is still expected to miss the start of the season, but "he doesn’t expect to miss a significant stretch," reports Jeff Wilson of the Star-Telegram.
The Rangers reportedly were at least exploring the idea of bringing back the 37-year-old Lewis following Cashner’s original diagnosis.
