ARLINGTON (July 7, 2013)--Texas Rangers right-hander Nick Tepesch and designated hitter Lance Berkman are headed to the disabled list, the team said Sunday.
Tepesch, who has inflammation in his right elbow, complained of soreness on Saturday, a day after getting the win in a 10-5 victory against the Houston Astros.
Berkman injured a muscle in his hip and back area in Saturday night's 9-5 loss to Houston, was removed for a pinch-hitter in the seventh, and said he probably wouldn't be available Sunday.
The Rangers activated right-handed reliever Joakim Soria for Sunday's game against Houston.
He hasn't pitched in the majors since Sept. 11, 2011, with Kansas City.
Right-hander Cory Burns was brought up from Triple-A Round Rock.
