Saturday morning Rangers news and links

Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, everyone...

The Rangers continued their winning ways yesterday, beating the Brewers, 8-5.

Gerry Fraley has his game summary from yesterday's game.

Michael Clair writes about what Joey Gallo needs to do to maximize his immense potential.

AAA hitting coach Jim Presley says the Rangers want Joey Gallo to be "patiently aggressive."

Mac Engel says the Rangers should let Adrian Beltre leave after 2016, based largely on the notion that nothing good comes from dealing with Scott Boras.

Evan Grant says two years at $17.5M per year, with a vesting option for a third year, would make sense on a Beltre extension, and that sounds reasonable to me.

Sleep tests have revealed Prince Fielder suffers from sleep apnea.

Andrew Faulkner was moved to the bullpen midway through last season, and he says he's happy with the move.

Tim Cowlishaw writes that, despite Nomar Mazara's great camp, the Rangers should start him in the minors to buy an extra year of team control with him.  Barring injury, there won't be a spot for Mazara on the Opening Day roster anyway, so that should end up being moot.

Jeff Wilson has his "Surprise Five" notes up.

Four Rangers minor leaguers will be leaving camp shortly to play in WBC qualifiers.

Shawn Tolleson is a fan of Bulletproof Coffee.

Jeff Wilson has notes on A.J. Griffin, Jeremy Guthrie, Shawn Tolleson, and Yu Darvish.

Sullivan's notes talk about Joey Gallo, the WBC, Alex Claudio, Darvish, and upcoming pitchers.

Fraley has notes on Colby Lewis, Yu Darvish, Alex Claudio and Rougned Odor.
