Jeff Wilson empties his notebook with a few items you might have missed or forgot after a few weeks of Spring Training previews.
The Athletic DFW launched yesterday and that means Jamey Newberg is joining the ranks of Ken Rosenthal and Peter Gammons.
Levi Weaver makes his Athletic DFW debut with a sterling piece on the duality of Bartolo Colon.
Evan Grant notes that the Rangers have found their 2018 Will Middlebrooks in 3B Trevor Plouffe on a minor league deal.
Andrew Simon predicts the Opening Day starter for each team where the Rangers are probably a Cole Hamels hangnail away from asking Tanner Scheppers to return and do the job.
And, lastly, Eric Longenhagen and Kiley McDaniel of Fangraphs rank not just 2018, nor merely 2019, but also the 2020 top MLB Draft prospects. Considering how the projections see the Rangers, we should perhaps become intimately familiar with the names at the top of these lists.
Have a nice day.
