Good morning, folks...
Yu Darvish had a high pitch count and a bases loaded situation in the sixth, but Jeff Banister stuck with him because, Banister says, he’s the team’s ace.
The win featured a cycle by Carlos Gomez. Richard Justice writes that this might get Gomez going after a slow start to the year.
The hope is that this win is an indication the Rangers are trending the right direction.
Yesterday was Delino DeShields’ first start of the season against a righthanded pitcher.
The Rangers are weighing whether to stick with Nick Martinez in the rotation or bring A.J. Griffin back.
The Rangers aren’t concerned about Griffin’s results in his rehab outings being subpar.
Martin Perez says he knows what he needs to do to improve on his last start.
Delino DeShields is focusing on what’s ahead, not worrying about what’s in the past.
T.R. Sullivan’s notes include stuff on Griffin, DeShields, and Joey Gallo.
