Howard (undisclosed) was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list ahead of Tuesday's start against the Diamondbacks.

Howard rejoined the Rangers on Saturday, and he'll serve as the opener ahead of Jordan Lyles on Tuesday. The 25-year-old has been sidelined since late August due to the league's health and safety protocols, but he recently made a rehab appearance at Triple-A Round Rock and gave up one run on three hits and no walks while striking out three in two innings.
