Wednesday a.m. Rangers stuff

PHOENIX, AZ - JULY 10: World Future's All-Star Martin Perez #54 of the Texas Rangers throws a pitch against the U.S. team during the 2011 XM All-Star Futures Game at Chase Field on July 10, 2011 in Phoenix, Arizona. (Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images)

T.R. Sullivan's notes includes quotes from Jon Daniels saying that, while Robbie Ross and Martin Perez are coming to camp as starters, if the team's biggest need is lefthanded relief, the team would "look at" utilizing one of those guys in that sort of role.

I wouldn't read too much into that, personally. While I think either Ross or Perez could end up pitching out of the bullpen at some point in 2012, I don't think either is likely to start the season with the big club.

Jeff Wilson has a story in the S-T about the team's non-roster players getting invited to spring training, with Ross and Mike Olt highlighting the group.

Richard Durrett writes that Brad Hawpe is deciding between three teams, including the Rangers, and could make a decision in the next week.

Wilson has a story on the increase in ticket prices and the lottery system for Opening Day tickets, with quotes from Ranger COO Rick George.

Gerry Fraley has a blog post on the Rangers' night getaway games, writing that there are fewer of those than last year, which should help the team.
