Friday morning Rangers news and links

Allan Henry-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, everyone...

So, the big news from yesterday is that Yu Darvish got removed after just 12 pitches due to tightness in his triceps.

Darvish said he felt the tightness when he was warming up before his start, and indicated he didn't think it was serious.

Evan Grant talks about whether the Rangers should be concerned about Darvish, Derek Holland and Colby Lewis, and the increased pitching depth the Rangers have compared to last year.

Grant also has a summary of yesterday's 5-4 loss to the Royals.

Someone named Cheslor Cuthbert had the walkoff hit yesterday off of Alec Asher.

Tracy Ringolsby has a story on how the Rangers are looking to prospects who are in the upper levels of the minors to have an impact in the near future.

T.R. Sullivan writes that Nick Tepesch and Nick Martinez are working to try to make the Opening Day roster.

Anthony Andro has an update on Elvis Andrus, Derek Holland and Martin Perez, who are all currently sidelined.

Shawn Tolleson had his contracted renewed by the Rangers, rather than signing a new contract, which he says was done on the advice of his agent in preparation for arbitration next year.

Jeff Banister included Tolleson with Neftali Feliz and Tanner Scheppers when talking about his core group of relievers.

Banister also says the Rangers will be aggressive on the basepaths.

Sullivan's notes talk about Elvis, Tolleson, Shin-Soo Choo, Holland, Perez, and Michael Kirkman.

The S-T's notes talk about Jorge Alfaro, Elvis, and the various Rangers slowed by injuries.
