Welcome back, minor leagues!

MLB: Texas Rangers at Minnesota Twins Jordan Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Jeff Wilson writes that the Texas Rangers bumbled their way to a 6-5 loss in last night’s opener against the Minnesota Twins.

Bill Ladson notes that Rangers’ starter Dane Dunning was a hard luck loser as defensive miscues added up to many runs for Minnesota in what ended up a one-run game.

Sam Blum takes a look at what a return to Target Field means for longtime now former Twin Kyle Gibson, who will face his old team tonight.

It’s Minor League Opening Day today! Hickory, Down East, and Frisco will play their first games since 2019 tonight. Nevertheless, Evan Grant writes that there are still operational challenges facing minor league teams in the wake of, well, you know, everything.

With the minor leaguers getting back at it, MLB Pipeline picks a prospect to follow for each team with Cole Winn the one to watch for Texas.

Wilson does Pipeline nine better with a total of ten Rangers farmhands to keep an eye on as the minor league season gets underway.

And, Grant’s MLB Draft watch ponders if Kumar Rocker has retaken the claim as the top college arm after a Jack Leiter slump with Gunnar Hoglund gunning for them both.

Have a good day!
