Good morning.

T.R. Sullivan acknowledges the important upcoming spring dates for the Rangers with pitchers and catchers set to report a week from today.

Evan Grant is writing about spring training issues that the Rangers will have to iron out with the keystone combination of Rougned Odor and Elvis Andrus a first concern.

With perhaps the most important season of Odor’s career coming in 2020, Jeff Wilson ponders if it’s a problem that he’s spent the offseason training away from Texas.

ESPN’s David Schoenfield lists a number for each American League squad that will shape their season in 2020. The Rangers? 7.22. Which, no, doesn’t stand for Pudge.Emmitt.

The folks at MLB dot com take a look at the projected closers for each club ahead of spring training with Jose Leclerc the favorite to take the job for Texas.

Jamey Newberg writes that the Rangers are replete with exciting catching prospect depth for the first time in a long time.

Patrick Conn writes about how Adrian Beltre turned into a legend after coming to the Rangers on his way to an induction into the Texas Sports Hall of Fame.

The Athletic’s Cliff Corcoran dunks all over the Rangers’ new uniform looks and ranks Texas dead last in livery among the league and it’s really hard to disagree with any of it.

And, lastly, Stefan Stevenson notes that the only Texas stop on the Guns N’ Roses ‘Larger Than Life’ summer tour will be at Globe Life Field putting those Arlington tax dollars and fake turf to work.

Have a nice day!
