9-0 loss in yesterday's spring training game against the Dodgers, with both Martin Perez and Neil Ramirez struggling.

Gerry Fraley has a story on the Rangers' young pitchers going up against the Dodgers yesterday.

ESPN Dallas has their post-game reactions up from yesterday's game.

Jeff Wilson has a piece on Ian Kinsler, who he says "divided the fan base" more than any other Ranger last year. Wilson says that lots of fans think Kinsler isn't good enough to be a leadoff hitter, but that those who think that "just don't know what they're talking about."

Anthony Andro ranks the third basemen in the A.L. West, with Adrian Beltre being ranked #1.

T.R. Sullivan has a story on the work Gary Pettis has done with the Rangers on their baserunning, and notes that last year, the Rangers were successful 254 out of 257 times when trying to take an extra base.

The S-T's notes talk about the team taking it slow with Adrian Beltre, Nelson Cruz, and Mike Napoli this spring, wanting to keep them healthy, Brad Hawpe maybe playing on Sunday, Conor Jackson getting stitches, and Miguel de los Santos using his fastball more.

The Rangers' website notes include items on Martin Perez's spring training debut, Beltre getting rest, and Joe Beimel's elbow.

Derek Holland talks about his favorite teams.

Master Tesfastion has his "Surprise Six" up at ESPN Dallas.
