Here's the status of the Texas bullpen heading into tonight's game.

Carlos Almanzar, Doug Brocail, and Frank Francisco all dropped their appeals after having their suspensions reduced by a game apiece. Almanzar finished serving his suspension on Saturday, and is available, but has been experiencing tightness in his forearm. He did not pitch yesterday in Texas's 9-0 loss to Seattle.

Brocail began serving his suspension yesterday, and will be unavailable until Saturday, October 2. Francisco's suspension runs through the end of the season.
