Saturday morning Rangers things

Saturday morning Rangers news and links

So, I wake up this morning and discover that Kobe Bryant tore his Achilles last night, Tiger Woods might be disqualified from the Masters for an illegal drop yesterday on the 15th hole, and the Angels/Astros game ended when Josh Hamilton got doubled off base because he forgot how many outs there were.

Quite an exciting overnight.

T.R. Sullivan's game story talks about Yu Darvish not having command of his fastball yesterday, resulting in a three run first inning for Seattle that ended up being all the offense they needed.

Jeff Wilson writes in his game story that Darvish seems to have somewhat shaken his Safeco Field jinx by not allowing a hit over his final five innings yesterday, even though the Rangers lost.

Evan Grant writes that Darvish struggled with his command yesterday.

Todd Wills has his Rapid Reaction at the ESPN Dallas blog.

Wilson writes that Lance Berkman is playing through pain in his surgically repaired knee, but is still performing at a high level this season.

Sullivan's notes talk about Lance Berkman likely being limited to pinch hitting duty when the Rangers playing the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley next week, since there will be no DH, Texas trying to figure out their rotation for next week, and Jurickson Profar being on the shelf with a sore left side.

Wilson's notes talk about Joe Nathan's velocity being down, Alexi Ogando's changeup, and whether Darvish will be skipped the next time through the rotation.
