MLB: Spring Training-Texas Rangers at Los Angeles Dodgers Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Jeff Wilson’s Surprise Five from Sunday takes a look at the Rangers’ 8-6 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Dave Sessions writes that Corey Kluber’s first Cactus League action with the Rangers was encouraging.

The DMN’s Sam Blum notes that Kluber and the Rangers were happy with how Kluber’s first spring outing went.

The Associated Press even got in on the Kluber craze with Kluber admitting that suiting up in a different uniform and throwing to big league hitters after an injury-filled 2019 was only weird until he actually got on the mound.

Levi Weaver writes about how the calendar flipping to March is an important time of the year for the likes of Lance Lynn, Greg Bird, and Ronald Guzman.

Wilson writes that at a year to the day that a line drive fractured Luke Farrell’s face, the righty has been one of the bright spots of spring training so far this year.

Sessions has notes on catcher Blake Swihart’s camp thus far and Farrell’s fight for a job in the Rangers’ bullpen.

And, finally, Weaver writes about how Adolis Garcia went from being DFA’d by the Cardinals to looking to be the next Danny Santana for the Rangers in 2020.

Have a nice day!
