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

Good morning.

Evan Grant writes about the unfortunate, gruesome news from yesterday of Willie Calhoun getting hit in the mouth by a 95 MPH fastball thrown by Dodgers hurler Julio Urias.

T.R. Sullivan writes that, after Chris Woodward and Jon Daniels joined their left fielder at the hospital, it was announced that Calhoun has a broken jaw.

Stefan Stevenson has quotes from Joey Gallo on how the Rangers handled playing the rest of the game following the Calhoun calamity.

Levi Weaver writes that Calhoun was poised to become a part of the answer in the lineup this season but now there’s a question as to when he can even get back on the field.

Sullivan writes that the emergence of Isiah Kiner-Falefa at the plate this spring will have to suffice for today’s silver lining.

Grant ponders if IKF is starting to make enough noise to wiggle his way into everyday playing time.

Sullivan has notes from yesterday’s 9-8 comeback victory over Los Angeles and how the Rangers plan to put Jonathan Hernandez and Luke Farrell to the test.

Jared Sandler was “Just Hangin’” with Blake Swihart as the catcher continues to look to carve out a role in camp.

And, finally, Will Leitch aimed to name the fastest guy on each big league team with Nick Solak being the swiftest for Texas.

Have a nice day!
