Rangers Today Baseball Podcast goes to (Marc) Church
(Texas Rangers/Ben Ludeman)
Believe it or not, the first priority for the players in Rangers big-league spring training is not appearing on the Rangers Today Baseball Podcast.
It’s probably, on average, about their 2,000th priority. That might be generous.
But right-hander Marc Church did his best to carve out time on his schedule, between a rainout Wednesday, backing up Thursday and pitching Friday.
He joined John Moore and me Friday evening from Surprise for Episode 73 of the No. 1 Rangers-related podcast going. We’re headed to Surprise on Wednesday, and this episode serves a quasi-preview of that trip.
Because of the rain and life, we had to kick it old school by filming the guest segment from our home offices. We talked about the big leagues and the minors a day earlier from the Roxo Media House studios.
Church has been one of the stars of camp, capturing the attention of Nathan Eovaldi before camp even started. Church had a one-pitch hiccup in his Cactus League debut, but his fastball-slider combination has produced two solid outings.
He finished 2022 at Double A Frisco and would seem to be headed back there to start this season. However, the majors might not be all that far away.
