SEATTLE (AP) The Texas Rangers have activated Andrew Cashner from the 10-day disabled list for his first start of the season against the Seattle Mariners and optioned right-hander Nick Martinez to Triple-A Round Rock.
The Rangers also activated Tanner Scheppers and assigned him to Round Rock on Saturday.
Cashner is making his first start for the Rangers after signing as a free agent this winter. Cashner missed most of spring training and the start of the season with soreness in his right bicep.
Last year, Cashner was 5-11 with a 5.25 ERA with San Diego and Miami.
