The pitching staff

We apparently have a pitching staff.  T.R. Sullivan, Evan Grant, and Jeff Wilson all have the lowdown...

Basically, the bullpen will be Frankie Francisco, C.J. Wilson, Eddie Guardado, Scott Feldman, Jason Jennings, Josh Rupe, and Warner Madrigal.

Kris Benson is in the rotation.  Willie Eyre and Dustin Nippert are headed to the d.l.  Derrick Turnbow is headed to AAA.

The Rangers, by outrighted Kason Gabbard, have one vacant spot on the 40 man roster right now, and will create three more when Eric Hurley and Joaquin Benoit are moved to the 60 day d.l. and when Joe Koshansky is waived.

The final spot on the bench is still down to Andruw Jones and Frank Catalanotto, but if Cat goes, Jones gets his roster spot.

There's still one 40 man decision to go, which could be trading Joaquin Arias, waiving Travis Metcalf or Luis Mendoza, or putting Nippert, Eyre or Tommy Hunter on the 60 day d.l.
