Anthony Ranaudo, Ross Detwiler both healthy and on schedule

Starting pitchers Anthony Ranaudo and Ross Detwiler are both fine after leaving their most recent outings early

Anthony Ranaudo and Ross Detwiler are both fine, physically, and on schedule to make their regularly scheduled next appearances, per the beat guys on Twitter.

Detwiler left his last outing early after being hit on his right (non-pitching) wrist with a batted ball, and Ranaudo left his last outing early because of elbow tightness.  The x-rays on Detwiler came back negative, however, and Ranaudo says the elbow tightness is something he deals with every spring.  Detwiler will throw a bullpen tomorrow, and Ranaudo will pitch in a minor league game tomorrow.

Detwiler and Ranaudo are two of the candidates for the final spots in the Rangers rotation.  Detwiler appears to have the #4 starter spot pretty well locked up, while Ranaudo is part of a group that includes Nick Martinez, Nick Tepesch, Chi Chi Gonzalez, Lisalverto Bonilla, and Ross Ohlendorf competing for the final spot in the rotation, filling the hole that was created when Yu Darvish was ruled out for the year.
