    • Bush was credited with his ninth hold of the season despite giving up one run on two hits while retiring one batter via strikeout in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Angels. Bush served up a home run to Mike Trout on Sunday; he's given up runs in two of his three appearances since coming off the 10-day disabled list earlier in September, but it doesn't appear that will dissuade manager Jeff Banister from turning to the former closer in high-leverage spots down the stretch. Even so, Bush doesn't look to be even first in line for saves behind primary closer Alex Claudio. It appears lefty Jake Diekman, who notched his first save of the season in Sunday's win, is now the top handcuff to Claudio.

    • Rangers' Matt Bush: Returns from DL
      By RotoWire Staff

      Bush (knee) was activated from the 10-day disabled list Sunday. Bush will rejoin the Rangers' bullpen after missing roughly the past three weeks with a sprained right MCL combined with a head injury. He'll slot back in as one of the team's late-inning relievers, while Alex Claudio continues to hold down the closer role.

    • Rangers' Matt Bush: Could return Sunday
      By RotoWire Staff

      Bush (knee) could be activated from the DL as soon as Sunday, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. The right-hander will throw his third bullpen session Wednesday and it sounds like that may be his final hurdle. Bush suffered a bruised right knee and a head injury in a collision with teammate Joey Gallo late last month. He had already lost his hold on the closer job well before that incident and Bush will be hard-pressed to earn that role back before the end of the season.

    • Bush (knee) said that he may "possibly" throw a bullpen session Sunday, Sam Butler of MLB.com reports. The Rangers have been down two key relievers of late in Bush and Keone Kela (shoulder), though the latter appears closer of the two to return from the disabled list after tossing a 25-pitch bullpen session Friday. Bush, who hit the DL after suffering a concussion and right MCL sprain in an Aug. 20 collision with teammate Joey Gallo, is no longer feeling the effects of the concussion but still needs more time for the knee to heal.

    • Rangers' Matt Bush: Begins playing catch
      By RotoWire Staff

      Bush (knee) recently began playing catch, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. It's a positive sign that Bush, who has already cleared the MLB's concussion protocol, has recently been able to begin playing catch, though the reliever will need to begin ramping up his throwing distance and ultimately return to mound work before he's able to rejoin the Rangers' bullpen. He's eligible to come off the disabled list as early as Aug. 30, but it appears Bush will be out well beyond that date. He remains without a firm timetable for return, though those estimates should come into focus once he's able to begin partaking in higher-intensity throwing activities.
