MLB: Texas Rangers-Media Day Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Mike Trout started wearing a face guard after being hit by a pitch in a game against the Rangers.

Rougned Odor’s uncle Rouglas has been reinforcing the Rangers’ message about attacking a specific pitch in a specific zone.

The Rangers have yet to determine who will be closing, what the setup roles will be, if Martin Perez is going to be ready Opening Day, or what happens after Cole Hamels. But, you know, it will all work out.

Clayton Blackburn may have torn an elbow ligament.

Jesse Chavez has followed up 10 baserunners in 4 innings with 3 perfect innings against Kansas City.

Willie Calhoun got sent to Round Rock Tuesday with instructions to work on his defense.

Sending down Calhoun was not a service time ploy... he was playing poorly at the plate and in the field.

The Rangers are trying to move away from relying on the cut fastball.

T.R. Sullivan says that Jesse Chavez has a lot of versatility... he can relieve, start, do both, or not make the team.

The Rangers are likely going to start the season with a 13 man pitching staff.

Sending Calhoun to Round Rock was only one of a bunch of moves made this week.
