Rapid Reaction: Rangers 1, Astros 0

ARLINGTON, Texas -- That's 15 straight series wins over the Houston Astros for the Texas Rangers as they secure their second 1-0 win in the past three days.

Washington's plan unravels in an instant

BOSTON -- Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington had the entire situation planned out. With runners on first and second and no outs in a one-run game, Washington would stick with reliever Alexi Ogando. Despite starting the inning by giving up a walk and a pinch-hit single, Ogando had looked his best in years, striking out four consecutive batters before issuing the walk, and hitting 96-mph on the radar gun. Washington was impressed with the downward movement of Ogando's fastball, hoping he could get one last double play.

You pick: Who rounds out Texas rotation?

The Texas Rangers named Tanner Scheppers to the rotation on Saturday based on how well he's pitched this spring (particularly Friday) and sent Alexi Ogando back to the bullpen. It was supposed to be the other way around. But that's how things have gone this spring for Texas. It hasn't been the kind of spring training the Rangers wanted or expected. They've had injuries and players fail to seize expected jobs (see Ogando and Neftali Feliz). But when that happens, it means opportunity for others.

Who should be Rangers Nos. 3-5 starters?

The next couple of days should be interesting from a starting rotation perspective. The fact that minor league games are up and running means that the Texas Rangers can free up spots in the Cactus League games for a couple of auditions. When spring started, it was assumed that most of the rotation was set. But it's amazing how things can change in the desert. Notice the headline includes "Nos. 3-5 starters," not just the final two spots. Why? Because Alexi Ogando hasn't exactly earned anything.

Daily Link Dump 3/19/14

Wednesday links. Billy Beane believes the role of technology in baseball will continue to grow to the point where teams begin hiring IT coaches. More rough news out of Rangers camp, where Alexi Ogando may be out of a starting job. Aside from Yu Darvish and Martin Perez, the Rangers still have lots of question marks in their rotation. Remember, Matt Harrison is still recovering from back surgery, Nick Tepesch is headed to the minor leagues and Derek Holland tripped over his dog. Even more Texas injury news! Elvis Andrus cannot throw right now. Adam Rosales is still hanging around in...
