Jeff Wilson has a story on the Rangers' centerfield situation, with the hope being that the Rangers can get enough from a platoon out there -- likely with Craig Gentry and Julio Borbon -- that Josh Hamilton won't have to play much center.

Anthony Andro also has a story on the centerfield battle, looking at Gentry, Borbon, and Leonys Martin, the three candidates who are fighting for playing time.

And T.R. Sullivan also has a story on the centerfield situation, including quotes from Round Rock manager Bobby Jones on Martin.

Behind the paywall, Evan Grant writes that Matt Harrison is determined not to let his disappointing outing in Game 7 of the World Series define his career.

Gil Lebreton has a column on Josh Hamilton's "I don't owe the Rangers" comment, with Hamilton blaming the media, and Lebreton saying that Hamilton has a tendency to speak "from the heart," oftentimes without as much tact as you'd prefer. Lebreton also has some comments from Jon Daniels about the situation.

Lyle Spencer of mlb.com has a column about the leadership of Young.

In Richard Durrett's afternoon notes, he says that Martin Perez has impressed Ron Washington early on.

The S-T's notes talk about Yu Darvish impressing with the movement on his pitches, Koji Uehara impressing Ron Washington early on, and the utility infielder battle.

Sullivan's notes talk about the utility infielders, Martin Perez and Neil Ramirez impressing early, and Darvish, among other things.

And Durrett has his "Surprise Six" from yesterday.
