Good morning, folks...

T.R. Sullivan's game story from yesterday highlights the performance of Jorge Alfaro.

Gerry Fraley also has a write-up from yesterday's exhibition game.

Anthony Ranaudo left yesterday's game with an elbow issue, but he says it is nothing major.  Ranaudo said after the game it is "normal stuff that I've dealt with," and that he plans on making his next start.

Jeff Wilson has a story on the various pitchers vying for the newly-opened spot in the Rangers rotation.

Jeff Banister wants Nick Tepesch, who is fighting for that spot, to focus on throwing sinkers.

Evan Grant writes that the Rangers might get creative with the last spot in the rotation in order to maximize what they are getting from their top three starters.

Sullivan writes that Michael Choice is still in the mix for the left field job this year.

Matt Harrison will start throwing off of a half-mound on Sunday, the next step in his effort to return from back surgery.

Mac Engel thinks people are too excited about Joey Gallo, who, Engel says, needs to figure out how to have a better batting average against minor league pitching.

The S-T's notes talk about Tony Romo visiting Rangers camp, Tanner Scheppers, Derek Holland and Joe Beimel.

Sullivan's notes talk about Scheppers, Holland and Prince Fielder's baserunning.

Fraley has notes on Holland, Harrison and Ryan Ludwick.
