Sunday morning Rangers news and links

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, everyone...

Texas beat up on Boston yesterday, 8-0.

Stefan Stevenson's game story highlights the performance of Chi Chi Gonzalez, who threw 5.2 scoreless innings in his major league debut.

The game story at the Rangers website calls Chi Chi's performance "unforgettable."

Randy Jennings has a Rapid Reaction from yesterday's game.

Jeff Banister told Chi Chi Gonzalez, when he went to the mound to take him from the game, that what he did yesterday was special, and he should listen to the crowd reaction because that was for him.

Evan Grant says that Gonzalez gives the Rangers a chance to break a run of bad returns on pitchers the team has taken with its first pick.

In an instance of bad timing, Bernie Pleskoff did a profile on Thomas Field for mlb.com yesterday that went up just a few hours before Field was DFA'd.

With Thomas Field being DFA'd, Hanser Alberto is getting an opportunity to get some time at second base.

Ryan Rua is going on a rehab assignment as soon as Friday, and is expected to play first base and third base as well as the outfield when he goes out.

Gerry Fraley runs down recent #4 picks in the draft, and looks at candidates that the Rangers could select with the #4 pick this year.

The S-T has their highlighting of some minor league performances over the past week.

The S-T's notes talk about Hanser Alberto, Shin-Soo Choo getting a day off, Ryan Rua, and Neftali Feliz.
