Rangers manager Bruce Bochy told reporters before Tuesday's game against Seattle that deGrom (elbow) could be another 2-to-3 weeks away from returning, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Bochy noted that deGrom has been going very easy with testing out his throwing while only playing light catch at this stage in his program. The right-hander has no timetable for when he'll be able to return to the mound for bullpen sessions, and that step will have to take place before a more serious ETA for deGrom's return to the Texas pitching staff. At this point, it seems very unlikely the 34-year-old will back back in the month of May, with the start of June seemingly a more realistic timeline at this juncture.
