Good morning. Apparently, two days before the official date, the only Rangers who haven't reported to camp yet are Leonys Martin and Carlos Peguero. Next stop: Cactus League action!
A day after talk spread about Texas guaranteeing Adrian Beltre's option for 2016, Ron Matejko of ESPN Dallas reports that the Rangers have made it so. Never leave, Beltre.
Anthony Andro writes that Elvis Andrus is out to prove that he's learned his lesson after a lackluster 2014 season.
Jeff Wilson writes about Prince Fielder arriving in camp yesterday and looking forward to hitting no matter where Jeff Banister puts him in the lineup.
T.R. Sullivan has more on Fielder who says that this is the most excited he's been for Spring Training since his rookie season.
The Rangers are still on the hunt for a left-handed reliever and, according to this tweet from Wilson, they're eyeing Phil Coke and Joe Beimel among others.
Among various other notes from Sullivan is the bummer news of the spring so far as Jurickson Profar had his shoulder surgery and is officially done for the 2015 season.
Wilson and Stefan Stevenson share notes on Beltre's deal, Profar's shoulder, and the minor league signing of Elliot Johnson.
Finally, Evan Grant checks in on an exiled Ron Washington who has gone from beloved two-time pennant-winning manager to part-time instructing the likes of Johnny Giavotella around New Orleans.
Have a nice day.
