Good morning.

Levi Weaver writes about Brett Nicholas going from emergency career minor league catcher to debuting hero of the Rangers' 7-3 win over the Mariners.

Evan Grant explained why Nicholas' heroics were all the more special since he was able to debut in front of his baseball hero, his 92-year-old grandfather.

Jeff Wilson's game story focuses on Nicholas and Colby Lewis working together to plow through the Mariners.

T.R. Sullivan has more thoughts on Nicholas and his grandpa along with various notes.

Grant writes that after a two-hit night in his second game, Nomar Mazara is showing an ability to make adjustments that Joey Gallo wasn't able to make last season.

Ben Badler profiles Nomar Mazara from "stunning" record setting $4.95 million 16-year-old amateur signee by the Rangers in 2011 to the well-rounded prospect he's become today.

Steve Adams of MLB Trade Rumors recaps the latest on where the Rangers stand as far as solidifying their weakened catcher depth.

EG talks tats with A.J. (Griffin) on the latest DMN Ballsy podcast.

The Star-Telegram's Robert Cadwallader profiles Aman Li, the undersung emergency tailor to the Rangers.

Sullivan previews tonight's second game of the three-game set against Seattle with Derek Holland facing off against Wade Miley.

Finally...

Treasure.

Have a great day.
