Texas Rangers

USA TODAY Sports Weekly - - AL WEST -

Jeff Banis­ter Martin Perez

Man­ager said left-han­der likely will re­turn this week­end when the Rangers face the Bal­ti­more Ori­oles.

Perez has been on the dis­abled list af­ter a nerve is­sue ap­peared fol­low­ing his off­sea­son surgery to re­pair his right el­bow, in­jured in an ac­ci­dent at his ranch in Venezuela.

Perez, who won 13 games last year, al­lowed just one run in 171⁄3 in­nings (0.52 ERA) over three mi­nor league re­hab starts.

❚ set a fran­chise record July 8 by reach­ing base in his 47th con­sec­u­tive game, the long­est streak in the ma­jors this sea­son, and he did it in dra­matic fash­ion with an in­field sin­gle in the ninth in­ning. The pre­vi­ous team mark was 46 by Julio Franco in 1993.
