Good morning, folks...
Today is Opening Day for several teams in MLB. Tomorrow night is the Rangers’ Opening Day.
Are you excited yet?
The Rangers beat the Royals, 5-3, yesterday, finishing the spring strong.
Evan Grant has his “Takeaways” from yesterday’s game.
Stefan Stevenson says that, despite nine players, including Adrian Beltre, starting the season on the disabled list, the Rangers’ team is relatively healthy.
Andrew Cashner is also starting the season on the disabled list, and it hasn’t been determined if he will be activated on April 15, when the Rangers need a fifth starter. Doug Brocail thinks it may be April 20 or April 25 instead.
Jeff Banister has praise for Joey Gallo’s work this spring and his ability to fill in for Beltre while Beltre is out.
Stefan also does some predictions for the coming season, and has the Rangers winning it all.
Levi has a story on Mike Hauschild, who has a few similarities to Colby Lewis. Hauschild, Jose Leclerc, and Dario Alvarez were the final pitchers to make the Rangers’ Opening Day bullpen.
Gerry Fraley has five things to know about the Cleveland Indians, who the Rangers face in their opening series.
The DMN, meanwhile, has 10 things to know about the Rangers.
