Monday a.m. Rangers things

Anthony Andro writes that Scott Feldman has become the Rangers' road warrior, winning his fifth straight road start yesterday, and doing it with a career-high 11 strikeouts, the most by a Ranger starter since Matt Perisho struck out 12 in a meaningless game at the end of the 1999 season.

Evan Grant says that the key to Feldman's recent trend of missing more bats is changing speeds and mixing in his curve more.

As discussed last night, Chris Davis is being called up for the series in New York, and Ron Washington says he'll be the team's first baseman, with Hank Blalock moving into his old role as a part-time DH and backup first baseman.

And Michael Young is on track to have a 200 hit season again, after falling short last year.
