Good morning, folks...

Evan Grant says the Rangers have taken steps to improve the communication between the manager and the players after there was grumbling in the clubhouse about Jeff Banister last year.

The Texas Rangers starting pitchers for 2018 have low expectations attached to them, but they are optimistic they can perform well this year.

Former Texas Ranger catcher Jim Sundberg is launching a website to “help people leave behind a positive legacy.”

The Rangers were one of the teams that took good advantage of the new 10 day d.l. in 2017.

Gerry Fraley’s preview of the players on the 40 man roster looks at Carlos Tocci, who, according to Fraley, will only stick if the Rangers don’t think they can make the postseason in 2018. The thing is, someone has to be a backup center fielder for the Rangers, and right now, Tocci is the only real option the Rangers have.
