• Pitcher Wilmer Font (shoulder inflammation) remains limited to long-toss throwing.
• Third-base coach Gary Pettis gave a lecture on baserunning to the entire team on Tuesday morning. The Rangers want to be a better on the basepaths this season, and being more aggressive will help them achieve that. But Pettis also talked about being smarter, understanding where the fielders are positioned, getting good leads and good reads off the bat.
• Alexi Ogando starts for the Rangers at 2:05 p.m. CT on Wednesday against the White Sox. Derek Holland starts at 2:05 p.m. CT on Thursday against the Indians, and that will be his last outing before joining Team USA for the World Baseball Classic. Randy Wells, who threw live batting practice on Tuesday, pitches at 2:05 p.m. CT on Friday against the Mariners.
