Tuesday Morning Rangers Update

Give Berkman your magical powers, Joe - Debby Wong-US PRESSWIRE

The latest news and notes on Adrian Belte's team.

Good morning.

Richard Durrett writes about closer Joe Nathan to conclude his Surprise position outlook series. As I'm sure you all remember, Nathan came in last season as a big question mark due to his age, recent injury history, and because his deal was perceived as an overpay by the Rangers. So, in response, Nathan had himself a damn good 2012 season. May the 2012 Maybe JD Knows What He's Doing winner pass the crown on to Lance Berkman in 2013.

The DMN writes a prospect primer on Luke Jackson where it is claimed that Jackson has perhaps the highest upside of any pitcher in the system. Today is your day, scoop. P.S. Jackson kind of looks like Scott Downs in the photo on the article.

Someone named Spencer Fordin at MLB.com writes that Mike Olt will be live Tweeting tomorrow at 8 p.m. as MLB.com unveils the 2013 Top 100 Prospects list at MLBPipeline.com. So be sure to send Mr. Olt all your Steve Holt, Bee Prospect and Mike Olt is Cordial meme jokes.

Lastly, Gerry Fraley blogs that Mark Lowe will be holding a throwing session on Wednesday for teams to prove that he is healthy. In other news, former Ranger great Jeff Frye (now Lowe's agent) and Ryan Rowland-Smith (of Ryan Rowland-Smith is 27) will be on hand. The Rangers are not expected to re-sign Lowe.
