Good morning, LSB.
Evan Grant writes that with Covid numbers spiking in Texas, Florida and California, the teams that play in those states might be starting the season with an inherent disadvantage.
Grant also has quotes from JD involving Mike Minor’s impending free agency, along with some other Summer Camp notes.
Evan also answered a bunch of baseball/corona questions from fans.
TR Sullivan has notes from yesterday’s intrasquad (intersquad?) game, where Corey Kluber looked great with the exception of one pitch.
Jeff Wilson writes that Isiah Kiner-Falefa’s hot spring/summer may affect the battle for first base, if IKF plays well enough to claim third over Todd Frazier.
Wilson also has more on Mike Minor’s free agency, along with an update on Joey Gallo and Brett Martin’s recoveries, and more on the double-masked Robinson Chirinos.
Jamey Newberg has a nice piece on The Athletic about Josh Jung and Alex Speas, two prospects in the Rangers 60-man pool that haven’t played a game above A-ball.
