He did throw a bullpen session at Oakland Coliseum before the Rangers' win over the Oakland Athletics on Saturday night. This news gives him more motivation in his rehabilitation process, as he told reporters this weekend "I don't want to go out like this."
The former Cincinnati Reds and San Diego Padres hurler signed with the Rangers in 2017 while he was recovering from the infamous Tommy John Surgery. That forced him to miss all of last season, and then he made just two starts this year before going down in the first month.
Over 14 major league seasons are what he has under his belt, posting a record of 93-87 with a 4.43 ERA. He was able to bring home a World Series ring with the Kansas City Royals in 2015, with his lone All-Star appearance coming in 2008, when he won a career-high 17 games. He is hoping to find a bit more success for a playoff-contending team before he calls it a career, but he is unfortunately in a familiar position as of late: the sidelines.
