Good morning.

Levi Weaver recaps a Cactus League loss to the Rockies yesterday.

Among Jeff Wilson's Surprise Five is his estimation of which of the Big Three prospects had the best big league camp.

Jared Sandler has a whole bunch of notes from yesterday including Ryan Rua upping his batting average this spring to .457.

T.R. Sullivan writes about one of the highlights from yesterday's game as Ian Desmond collected his first outfield assist. This is what it looked like:

Evan Grant writes about the Rangers assigning their hyped group of prospects to minor league camp.

Jurickson Profar was among the roster cuts but, as Wilson writes, he expects to be back with the Rangers again after he's proven himself at Round Rock.

ESPN ranks Cole Hamels as the 42nd best player in baseball one spot ahead of Jason Heyward and one spot behind Jose Abreu.

Hamels joined the DMN folks for the Ballsy Podcast to talk about he and Yu Darvish will push each other this season. Also, hot air balloon talk.

Sullivan is the latest to write about the Rangers' deep and good bullpen, though now with the expectation of being deep and good.

Gil LeBreton is, along with Jeff Banister, wondering when a fifth starter will emerge for the Rangers.

Tracy Ringolsby takes a national view of the currently stagnated No. 5 starter battle.

Finally, Jeff Sullivan begins Fangraphs' Positional Power Rankings with the Rangers coming in at #22 at the catcher position.

Have a great day.
