Monday Morning Rangers Update

I've come to realize that this particular offseason feels especially grueling because it's been longer than any offseason we've experienced since the offseason of 2009. We got spoiled by the super quick turnaround afforded to a team that plays until practically November.

Richard Durrett continues his Surprise position outlook series with some cheery news by focusing on the Rangers' No. 1 starter. That's Yu Darvish. He's good.

The DMN has a Prospect Primer piece on Leury Garcia and his prospects of becoming the Rangers' utility infielder in 2013.
