Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, folks...

The Rangers beat the Angels, 7-3, last night.

Jeff Wilson's game story talks about Griffin's triumphant return to the mound.

T.R. Sullivan's game story talks about Griffin and the bullpen leading Texas to a win.

Evan Grant writes about Griffin getting back in a major league clubhouse and being a major leaguer again.

To make room for Griffin on the roster, the Rangers designated Justin Ruggiano for assignment.

Evan Grant writes that Ruggiano's deal pays him $500,000 for his time in the minors, which is lucrative enough that he would likely accept the minor league assignment, which he has enough service time to reject.

Evan Grant also writes about the Rangers' early offensive struggles, with Jeff Banister saying things aren't that bad.

Levi Weaver thinks people need to chill out about the Rangers' slow start.

Alden Gonzalez has a story on the relationship between Shin-Soo Choo and Angels first baseman Ji-Man Choi.

The S-T's notes talk about Justin Ruggiano, Adrian Beltre, Rougned Odor and Delino DeShields.

The Rangers' website notes hit on a bunch of issues, including the bench, Beltre, Yu Darvish, and Luke Jackson.

The DMN's notes talk about Cole Hamels liking the Rangers' use of statistical analysis, Luke Jackson, Tom Wilhelmsen, Jurickson Profar, and minor league starters.
