MLB: Texas Rangers at Seattle Mariners Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Jeff Wilson summarizes all the excitement from the last week, including the announcement that the Rangers are going with turf because, well, money, and that the Ranger bullpen is looking a lot less inexperienced.

Among the minor league deals from the last week are Ricardo Rodriguez, who is still recovering from offseason surgery, Chris Nunn and David Carpenter.

On the agenda for the spring, circled in red and highlited, is changing how the young Rangers’ hitters approach two strike counts.

The team will be retiring Adrian Beltre’s number on June 8, so buy your tickets.

Delino DeShields is already in Arizona working on a new swing in an attempt to recapture what’s been, so far, mercurial success.

Rougned Odor is hoping to take the changed approach at the plate he learned during his DL stint last year and turn it into consistent success in 2019.
