Friday morning Rangers things


If you care about the results of spring training games, yesterday was very disappointing, as a Brad Hawpe error opened the door for a 9th inning rally that resulted in the Rangers blowing a lead and losing to the A's, 11-7.

T.R. Sullivan has a game story at the Rangers' website.

Evan Grant has his game report at the DMN blog.

Master Tesfatsion writes that Martin Perez was nervous yesterday in his second spring start.

Grant writes about Martin Perez and Neil Ramirez getting a learning experience by facing major leaguers this spring, even though they have struggled so far.

Mike Adams says he worked on a mechanical adjustment in his bullpen session yesterday which he believes will fix the problem with his fastball command that he had in his last outing.

Drew Davison has a story on the Rangers bullpen, with quotes and thoughts from Mike Maddux about the team's relievers.

Sullivan writes that Ben Snyder, who has recently made a change in his delivery, is still in the mix for a job as a lefty reliever.

Anthony Andro ranks the DHs in the A.L. West, with the Rangers being at the top of the list.

Sullivan has a story about Brad Hawpe and Conor Jackson trying to revive their careers in Texas.

The S-T's notes talk about Wilmer Font, Matt West, and Fabio Castillo being sent to the minor league camp, and pitcher Kelvin de la Cruz being sent to Cleveland for cash considerations. The Rangers acquired de la Cruz from Cleveland for cash considerations less than a month ago. I will never forget the three weeks he spent here. It was memorable.
