Sullivan on Nix and the 5th starter spot

T.R. Sullivan with some Rangers notes...the big item is Laynce Nix playing in the field in a major league game today, although Sullivan says that Nix still isn't 100%, and it is up in the air as to whether he or GMJ will be major-league-ready to start the season.

Sullivan also reiterates that Juan Dominguez has "dropped out" of the competition for 5th starter, and that Buck has ruled out C.J. Wilson being a starter as well, leaving R.A. Dickey and Edinson Volquez competing for the job.

I'm sure Buck would love to have Dickey in the rotation, but if it really comes down to those two, I've got to think that Jon Daniels is going to be out trying to land David Wells or John Thomson.
