Friday morning Rangers news and links

Ten days until Opening Day.

Drew Davison's game story from yesterday talks about Robbie Ross keeping himself in the hunt for a rotation job, after allowing 2 runs in 5.2 innings.

Gerry Fraley has a game report up at the DMN blog.  Fraley also writes about Ross making a case for being a starter.

In a minor league game, Colby Lewis allowed just one run in 4.2 innings, and left the game feeling good about where he is, health-wise and stuff-wise.

Richard Durrett asks who should be the Rangers' #3-5 starters.

Jeff Wilson has an update on Derek Holland and Matt Harrison, with Holland scheduled to throw a bullpen session on April 2, and Harrison continuing to work towards being ready to return to the Rangers' rotation in mid-April.

Evan Grant has a story on Mitch Moreland, who is trying to avoid messing with his swing while injured (something that has apparently been an issue in the past), and who hopes to be back by Opening Day.

T.R. Sullivan writes that Mitch Moreland could be the difference between the Rangers' lineup being good and being great.

Elvis Andrus says his sore throwing arm is a result of not doing any throwing this winter.

Gil Lebreton has a column on Aroldis Chapman getting injured this week on a ball back up the middle, and talks to Tanner Scheppers, who was knocked out in college after getting struck by a hit ball.

Evan Grant opines on Nolan Ryan's comments about being dropped in JD's sandbox.  He also has a blog post on another former Ranger CEO, Chuck Greenberg, looking to buy the Frisco Roughriders.

Durrett writes that the #1 player on the Ranger, from a fantasy perspective, is Adrian Beltre.

The S-T's "Spring Break" piece features Elvis Andrus talking about why he has decided to live in D/FW year-round.

Sullivan's notes talk about Robbie Ross, Colby Lewis, Geovany Soto, and Elvis Andrus.
