Saturday a.m. Rangers stuff

I'm still a bit traumatized over Elvis Andrus having left the game last night with a left wrist injury.  Shortstop is the one position where the Rangers don't really have anyone who could fill in for a significant length of time -- Andres Blanco is fine as utility infielder, but I don't think you want him starting for several weeks in a row, and there's not really anyone in the organization who could replace Blanco in that UIF role.

Jeff Wilson says in his game story, which focuses on Matt Harrison's terrific outing, that the Rangers don't think Andrus will have to go on the disabled list.

T.R. Sullivan's game story talks about Harrison's strong start and the home runs the Rangers used to break open the game.

Evan Grant has his reactions to an 8-1 Rangers win.

Richard Durrett has his post-game notes at the ESPN Dallas blog.

Grant has a piece behind the paywall on Harrison's progress as a pitcher.

Bryan Dolgin has updates on five pitchers coming back from injury who the Rangers are hoping will be able to contribute in the near future.

The S-T's notes include stuff on Jon Daniels' trip to Japan, Josh Hamilton's contact lenses, and updates on rehabbing Rangers.

Joe Wieland, the Rangers 4th round draft pick in the 2008 draft, has been promoted from high-A Myrtle Beach to AA Frisco, and will take the mound as the RoughRiders' starting pitcher on Monday.

Jennifer Floyd Engel has a column talking about Dirk Nowitzki throwing out the first pitch, and says the Ranger bullpen needs to be better and Jon Daniels needs to go trade for bullpen help.
