The Surprise Five: Medical updates provide some clarity on Rangers’ Opening Day roster

TEMPE, Ariz. —  One thing I’ve learned over my years covering the Rangers is that it’s never a bad day when you get some time with Ron Washington.

He is the first of four Rangers managers I’ve covered, and there’s no one like him. He has an uncanny way of making the people he encounters feel good.

I caught him Monday after the Rangers whipped the Angels 15-5. It was a sloppy performance by Washington’s team, and he acknowledged as much. It was their first stinker, though, he said.

That’s the way spring training go.

He gave me some grief about missing him the first time this spring and just showing up in the middle of camp. I assured him that this is my second of three trips, but I failed to rib him for all the mid-inning pitching changes he made.

Next time. There will be a next time.

Here’s the Surprise Five.

    I wanted Langford and Foscue/Crim on the roster on OD, but definitely not like this. I hope Seager is healthy by then and wish the last (to a lesser extent) with Jung and Lowe. Missing an All Star is rough, but missing a 2nd place MVP finisher would be much worse.
