Good morning.

As Levi Weaver writes, the Rangers ran into Corey Kluber and therefore their first losing streak of the spring.

Doug Miller recaps the game and notes that A.J. Griffin did OK in his first spring start while Ronald Guzman continues to have a nice spring.

Jeff Wilson's Surprise Five covers Ian Desmond finally getting a few chances in left field yesterday.

Jon Daniels was on the Ballsy Podcast with Evan Grant to talk about his expectations for Joey Gallo this season.

T.R. Sullivan writes that the Rangers may go with an unconventional three-man bench in favor of a 13-man pitching staff to start the season.

Weaver looks at ten guys vying for a spot on what could be a short bench for Texas.

Desmond spoke on the Ben and Skin show about the thought process that landed him in Texas and he also called Joey Gallo, "The largest human being I've ever seen."

Martin Perez was on with Matt Mosley and Tim Cowlishaw on The Afternoon Show to talk about his health and his admiration for Cole Hamels.

Sullivan's notes from yesterday include a roster culling at camp and various injury updates.

Finally, in an ESPN Insider piece, Keith Law writes briefly about watching Dillon Tate's first action of the spring yesterday.

Have a great day.
