Friday morning Rangers news and links

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, everyone...

Colby Lewis is back, officially.

Jon Daniels said, in announcing the deal, that "over the last five years, he has been everything we are about."

Anthony Andro quotes Colby as saying that "[Texas is] where I wanted to be."

Evan Grant writes that Colby Lewis had a "rehab" offseason last year, and this offseason is pain free and back to normal.

Also announced yesterday was that Michael Kirkman was re-signed to a minor league deal by the Rangers.  He will compete for a spot in the bullpen this spring.

And the Rangers also released the names of the managers for their minor leagues affiliates in 2015.

Jeff Banister says he's impressed by Yu Darvish, and that Prince Fielder is a "beast" in the middle of the lineup.

T.R. Sullivan writes that, despite the team's interest in Torii Hunter, starting pitching remains the team's focus this offseason, and also has updates on where things stand with several players currently in the organization.

Rougned Odor and Odubel Herrera continued to mash in the Venezuelan Winter League, each putting up three hits.

Stefan Stevenson has notes on Jeff Banister meeting with Yu Darvish for the first time, the possibility of Geovany Soto returning to Texas, and the managers of the team's minor league affiliates.
