ARLINGTON — The moment Thursday wasn’t lost on Josh Jung.
It wasn’t so much his first Opening Day start, not just in the majors but since turning pro, but the fact that he wasn’t recovering from surgery.
“It’s truly amazing,” he said. “I made it through spring training healthy.”
That was all he needed to do to become the Rangers’ fifth different Opening Day third baseman in the five seasons since Adrian Beltre retired.
Here’s guessing Jung has some staying power.
