The Rangers beat the snot out of Cliff Lee yesterday, but the most interesting performance may have been from Derrick Turnbow, who, Evan Grant notes, has allowed just 1 hit and 1 walk in his last three outings.
Scott Feldman was roughed up in the fifth yesterday, after 4 solid innings, but feels good about the progress he's making. Jeff Wilson also notes that C.J. Wilson and Luis Mendoza threw long toss yesterday in their efforts to return from blister problems.
Wilson also says that Warner Madrigal has a spot in the bullpen pretty much nailed down, and runs down the candidates for the remaining bullpen spots. Of note is that Wilson suggests that the Rangers will have an 8 man bullpen until April 16, when they need a 5th starter...that would mean that Matt Harrison would have to be optioned to AAA to start the season.
Andruw Jones is looking at his options, as it appears he isn't likely to be added to the Rangers' roster by his opt-out date. Marlon Byrd, meanwhile, has come back strong after early injury issues, as Grant talks about in a lengthy set up notes from yesterday.
