As announced Sunday on the official Twitter account of the Texas Rangers …

Detwiler began reporting discomfort in his throwing shoulder after his start Thursday against the Royals. He took a loss in that one and stands 0-5 on the season with a brutal 6.95 ERA and 1.87 WHIP through 33 2/3 innings. The 29-year-old southpaw had a strong 3.82 ERA in 471 innings with the Nationals before the offseason trade that sent him to Arlington, Texas for infielder Chris Bostick and right-hander Abel de los Santos. Detwiler is pulling in a $3.45 million salary this season in his final year of arbitration eligibility.

Mets third baseman David Wright landed on the 15-day disabled list in mid-April after suffering a right hamstring strain on a stolen base attempt and then he suffered a minor back injury while rehabbing that hamstring strain. But the 32-year-old is now finally trending in a positive direction …

Mets manager Terry Collins told Adam Rubin of ESPN New York on Sunday morning that Wright feels well enough to resume baseball activities at the club’s spring training complex in Port St. Lucie, Florida. It’ll start with a light workout Monday and go from there.

Wright hasn’t done any baseball activity for at least 10 days and he’ll eventually have to head out on a minor league rehab assignment to get his timing right at the plate, so it’s going to be a while before he makes it all the way back to the majors. Eric Campbell and Daniel Murphy have been filling in at the hot corner.

Wright was batting .333/.371/.424 with a homer and four RBI in eight games before these injuries.

From the official Twitter account of the Oakland Athletics …

Davis strained his left quadriceps muscle last Monday while trying to leg out a double and had been limited to a single pinch-hitting appearance over the last six days. Oakland apparently grew tired of playing a man short. The 28-year-old first baseman was off to a decent start with his new team, batting .282/.348/.427 with two home runs and 11 RBI in 33 games. He should be back in action for the A’s around the beginning of June.
