• Infielder Josh Wilson was fine on Saturday after getting hit in the left forearm with a pitch in the ninth inning. Donnie Murphy started at second base but Wilson was available. Said Wilson, "I thought it would be a little stiff but it's not that bad."
• Some Rangers pitchers took batting practice for the first time since Spring Training on Saturday. The Rangers play at Colorado on May 5-6 for their first road Interleague games with Martin Perez and Robbie Ross scheduled to pitch.
• The Rangers' 6-5 loss to the Mariners on Friday night ended with Adrian Beltre lining out into a double play with the bases loaded. The last time a Rangers loss ended with the tying and winning runs on base and the hitter lining out into a double play was on Aug. 18, 1987 at Arlington Stadium when Larry Parrish did so in a 7-6 defeat to the Royals.
• Rangers pitchers hit four batters on Friday, one short of the club record. They had five hit batters against the Royals on Sept. 3, 1989 and four against the Royals on Sept. 1, 1992.
