Friday a.m. Rangers stuff

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Friday morning Rangers news and links

Good morning, everybody.

The Rangers beat the Padres, 8-4, yesterday, and Jurickson Profar led the way with a grand slam.

The game story on the Rangers' website highlights the performances of Profar and Alexi Ogando.

Gerry Fraley has a game report on yesterday's victory.

Neftali Feliz, who was unimpressive in his first spring outing, looked better yesterday, according to the S-T.

Fraley writes that, even though Alexi Ogando pitched well yesterday, that doesn't mean you can count on him to be able to stay in the starting rotation.

Stefan Stevenson has a piece on the Rangers knowing the value of middle relievers.

Richard Justice has a column on the evolution of Colby Lewis, without quotes from Ron Washington and Jon Daniels on his toughness and character.

Richard Durrett writes that non-roster invitee Brent Lillibridge is making a positive impression on the Rangers early in camp.

Mac Engel, who, as we've discussed, is apparently attempting to position himself as the new Galloway, has a column on Ron Washington, and how he's going to do a great job this year despite having a "mess" to work with.  Oh, we've now gone from railing about the Rangers not extending Ron Washington to railing about the Rangers only extending him for a year.

The S-T's "Spring Break" notes include Joakim Soria talking about growing up admiring the Braves pitchers.

The Rangers website notes hit on Alexi Ogando, Jose Contreras, Geovany Soto's expecting to return on March 15, and the closer battle.
