Good morning, everybody...

Stefan Stevenson's game story highlights the struggles Yu Darvish had with his command from the outset of last night's game.

The Rangers' website game story also focuses on Yu's lack of fastball command yesterday, with Ron Washington saying it just wasn't Yu's night.

Gerry Fraley has a post-game recap of yesterday's 8-3 Rangers loss.

Calvin Watkins has his Rapid Reaction of yesterday's loss at the ESPN Dallas site.

Derek Holland had a rehab start last night, and afterwards, said he felt "really good."

Stevenson writes that, for the Rangers' young pitchers like Nick Martinez and Miles Mikolas, the stats are less important than seeing improvement and development for the future.

Stevenson also has a story on the promotions of Jorge Alfaro and Nomar Mazara, which includes quotes from each of the players and from folks in the organization.

Kate Morrison also has a piece on Alfaro and Mazara at the WFAA website.

And speaking of the minor leagues, Fraley says Joey Gallo has a lot of power.

Ray Buck has a piece looking back on the 1994 MLB strike that ended up canceling the World Series.

The Rangers' website notes talk about Chris Gimenez clearing waivers, Alex Rios returning to the lineup today, and Shin-Soo Choo the DH.
