MLB: Oakland Athletics at Texas Rangers Ray Carlin-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, folks...

The big Texas Rangers news from yesterday was that Cole Hamels vocalized how unenthused he is about the six man rotation the Rangers are discussing.

Levi Weaver has a story on Hamels’ distaste for the six man rotation, as well as other notes from yesterday.

Elvis Andrus felt good on Saturday after getting his first game action of the spring on Friday.

Tim Cowlishaw sings the praises of Willie Calhoun, but his questioning why Calhoun is ranked so far below Eloy Jimenez and Gleyber Torres has me thinking he may be going a bit overboard.

Levi’s positional preview continues with a look at the outfield, and in particular, the battle for two spots (left field and backup outfielder) that is ongoing between four (or maybe five) players.

Jeff Wilson’s Surprise Five notes covers, of course, the Hamels brouhaha, as well as Matt Bush, Jesse Chavez, Destin Hood, and Derek Holland.

Gerry Fraley’s notes from camp includes stuff on Hamels, Jurickson Profar, and Joey Gallo breaking Statcast.
