A collection of links for your lunchtime reading pleasure

So, we've got some linkaliciousness today...

Ken Rosenthal has a notes column up that includes lots of Rangers stuff, including talking about Nick Martinez, and the Rangers' infield situation.  There's a quote from Ron Washington, where he says Jurickson Profar doesn't have the talent Luis Sardinas or Rougned Odor do, but he has "it," and compares him to Elvis Andrus...

Baseball America has a story up on Joey Gallo that illustrates how he has, so far in his career, been homering at a historic rate...

Mark Teixeira's wrist is hurt again, and he's going to miss a few games.

Josh Hamilton's thumb is hurt again, and his rehab assignment has been put on hold.

On the heels of Royals wunderkind Yordano Ventura being pulled from the game yesterday with an elbow injury, we learn that Royals stud pitching prospect Kyle Zimmer is also hurt.

Former Rangers pitching prospect, and now Cubs pitching prospect, C.J. Edwards, is out until the All Star Break, most likely.

And former Ranger pitcher Cliff Lee is still not ready to resume throwing, as he deals with a strained elbow.

Finally, in non-pitcher injury news, A.J. Ellis sprained his ankle while celebrating Josh Beckett's no-hitter, and is now on the disabled list.
