Saturday morning Rangers news and links

MLB: Spring Training-Chicago White Sox at Texas Rangers Rick Scuteri-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, folks...

The Rangers beat the Padres, 4-3, yesterday.

Elvis Andrus hit a home run and Martin Perez pitched extremely well, so you know I was thrilled with the game. Perez is pitching with confidence after his WBC stint.

Levi Weaver has his game story from yesterday’s win.

Evan Grant has his “Takeaways” from yesterday’s win.

Tanner Scheppers had to leave yesterday’s game due to an injury, and is getting an MRI.

Yu Darvish appears to be slated to start for the Rangers on Opening Day, though nothing is official yet.

A.J. Griffin appears to have claimed a rotation spot, though nothing is official yet.

Jurickson Profar in center is a work in progress, but Jeff Banister thinks he can play there.

Shin-Soo Choo still has the drive and motivation to succeed.

Gil Lebreton says that this has been a quiet, drama-free camp, which isn’t a bad thing.

Sam Dyson and Jonathan Lucroy enjoyed their WBC experiences. Lucroy thinks more players will want to play in 2021 after seeing what happened this year.

Evan Grant wants to see more of the game’s best participate.

Alex Claudio joined Dyson as a reliever returning to the Rangers’ pen in camp from the WBC.

Four players were re-assigned to the minor league camp yesterday.

The #1 prospect on WFAA’s Rangers prospect rankings is Yohander Mendez.

Jeff Wilson has his “Surprise Five” from camp yesterday.

The Rangers’ website has notes on Lucroy and Dyson, Tyson Ross, injury updates, and guys being sent down.
