The Rangers received good news on the results of Shawn Tolleson’s MRI Wednesday.
The right-hander has no significant material change to the forearm on his throwing arm. He’ll be examined by Rangers team physician Dr. Keith Meister on Friday. Wednesday’s results were compared with an MRI he had in 2013. Tolleson will work off a plan based on Meister’s exam.
Rangers assistant general manager Thad Levine said the club was optimistic. It still appears unlikely that Tolleson will be ready to start the season in the bullpen.
“In our minds it was very positive news,” Levine said. “We don’t think he’s lost any significant arm strength.”
