Rangers’ outfielder Anthony Webster is expected to be back on the field at Double-A Frisco Thursday when the Roughriders play at home against Corpus Christi.
The 2001 15th-round pick missed nearly all of spring training with lower back issues, so the club kept him in extended spring training to at least get some at-bats in before sending him out.
“There was nothing structurally wrong . . . just more of a muscle strain,” Texas director of player personnel Scott Servais said.
Webster split last season between Frisco and Triple-A Oklahoma, batting .269/.317/.384 with the RedHawks before finishing up the year in the Arizona Fall League.
The Rangers lost first baseman Nate Gold for up to three weeks with a dislocated finger. The 10th-round pick in 2002 out of Gonzaga, who hit a career-high 34 homers at Frisco last season, was hitting just .194/.293/.306 in 36 at-bats at Oklahoma.
