Good morning.

Jeff Passan dropped a bomb late last night with news that MLB wants to try to begin the season in May with a plan that seems extremely unlikely at best.

Evan Grant writes that the Rangers are in the prepare-for-anything stage of trying to stay ready for a possible season.

T.R. Sullivan offers up injury updates straight from GM Jon Daniels as players such as Willie Calhoun continue to recover from spring maladies.

Jeff Wilson writes that three Rangers minor leaguers have exhibited presumptive coronavirus symptoms and are recovering in quarantine.

Levi Weaver passes along the remarkable and unlikely story of not one but three MLB organists who are first responders in the COVID fight.

Sullivan ranks the top second basemen in Rangers franchise history with Ian Kinsler leading the way.

Grant scouts lefty Joe Palumbo and lists him as 10th on the list of top Rangers farmhands heading into the presumed 2020 season.

The 2011 Texas Rangers got a first round series win over the 2001 Oakland Athletics in ESPN’s Second-Chance World Series sim tournament. Even in sim baseball:

Andrew Simons celebrates the upcoming birthdays of Adrian Beltre and Felix Hernandez by remembering the best moments from their friendly rivalry.

And, finally, Jared Sandler was easily able to come up with an All-Food Name Team for the Texas Rangers.

Be well!
