Jeff Wilson’s Surprise Five covers Doug Fister’s spring debut with Texas where the righty tossed three swift, reporter-approved shutout innings.
Dave Sessions writes that Fister was happy with his outing among his notes from camp from Sunday.
Levi Weaver has a lot more on Fister including his extraordinary pace, recent adjustments, and his less-provocative-than-others opinion on a six-man rotation.
Cole Hamels may have had the provocative opinion on a six-man rotation, but Samuel Hale writes that the veteran has performed better with extra rest since coming to Texas.
Sessions writes that Joey Gallo is cool with becoming a full-time first baseman and the Rangers are hoping he becomes a defensive plus at the position.
Why do some Rangers opt for protective padding at the plate? Let Wilson tell of Adrian Beltre and his 15-year-old bruise.
Jamey Newberg continues his rankings of Rangers prospects with a look at the top left-handers on the farm.
And, lastly, Jon Daniels was on the radio and the DMN has highlights of his thoughts on Jeff Banister’s self-evaluation, the weird offseason, and pace of play.
Have a nice day!
