Friday morning Rangers news and links

Good morning, everybody!

The sun is out, the birds are singing, and the Rangers are two-and-a-half games up in the A.L. West.

Drew Davison's game story talks about how Nick Tepesch, in his first start since taking a line drive off his wrist, had no wrist problems against the Twins, giving the Rangers a very solid 6.2 innings.

Nate Sandell's story for the Rangers' website also focuses on Tepesch and his superb outing last night.

Anthony Maggio has his "Rapid Reaction" at the ESPN Dallas blog.

Gerry Fraley writes that Elvis Andrus showed with his glove last night why the Rangers were willing to give him big dollars to extend him.

Davison's notes talk about Nelson Cruz's hot streak, Yu Darvish's dominance, and the rehab situation with the Rangers' various injured pitchers, including news on where Colby Lewis and Martin Perez are in their returns.

The Rangers' website notes hit on Tepesch's wrist, the Rangers' difficult travel situation yesterday, and Jeff Baker's imminent return.

Finally, congratulations to Drew Sheppard, whose amazing Yu Darvish gif went viral yesterday, and resulted in him joining the staff of FanGraphs.
