Saturday a.m. Rangers news and links

Good morning, all...

The Rangers won yesterday, and Jeff Wilson's game story focuses on Tanner Scheppers pitching six solid innings to further his efforts to win a spot in the Ranger rotation.

T.R. Sullivan's game story talks about Scheppers' start and Prince Fielder's home run.

Evan Grant has his game report over at the DMN Rangers blog.

Neftali Feliz's velocity still wasn't really there yesterday, but Feliz says he's not concerned about it.

Evan Grant writes that, as far as the pitching staff goes, Tanner Scheppers is impressing and Neftali Feliz is disappointing.

Sullivan has a piece on the state of the Rangers' pitching staff, as nine days before Opening Day, there are still three rotation spots and the closer role undetermined, with a couple of other bullpen spots dependent on what happens with the rotation.

Evan Grant has five things he thinks he thinks this spring, including a knock on Elvis's preparation this offseason.

Yu Darvish was scratched from his scheduled start in a minor league game yesterday because of a stiff neck, though it isn't expected to impact his ability to start on Opening Day.

Ron Washington says that, despite the scratched start yesterday, Darvish has had a good spring.

Elvis Andrus is supposed to do a throwing program the next seven days before returning to the field, a schedule that should have him ready for Opening Day.

Wilson writes that Ranger fans shouldn't be concerned about the rash of injuries this spring, because its just a normal part of spring training.

Rangers pitchers aren't inclined to use the protective cap being developed, even after what happened to Aroldis Chapman this week.

The S-T's "Spring Break" segment today has Leonys Martin talking about living in America.

T.R. Sullivan's notes include praise for Colby Lewis's outing in a minor league game yesterday, Elvis's sore arm, and Josh Wilson taking advantage of some extra playing time.
