Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, folks...

The Rangers played a pair of games in two different states yesterday, and lost the game in Arizona, 7-1.  Texas won the game in Texas, however, 7-5, thanks to a walkoff Lewis Brinson home run.

Evan Grant has Three Takeaways from the loss.

Gerry Fraley has Three Takeaways from the win.

Fraley writes that Brinson is getting close to his goal of being a major leaguer.

Derek Holland felt good about his outing yesterday, though Jeff Banister says he should be a little sharper at this point.

Phil Rogers has a story on Joey Gallo, who, Rogers says, is learning the value of patience.

The Rangers had Gallo accompany coach Tony Beasley to a chemotherapy treatment, and Evan Grant details why.

Jeff Wilson writes that Ryan Rua has had a strong spring to make himself a serious contender for an Opening Day roster spot after a rough 2015 season.

Yu Darvish is making great progress in his return from Tommy John surgery, and the Rangers don't anticipate limiting his innings in 2016.

T.R. Sullivan has a story with some quotes from pitching coach Doug Brocail, who says that now is the time for someone to claim the fifth starter job.

Wilson has his Surprise Five update from yesterday.
