DH Ronald Guzman: 3-5, double, .300/.364/.429
All hail Drew Robinson, who hit a grand slam for his fourth homer in three games at Colorado Springs. Jon Heyman reports
that Jurickson Profar, not Robinson, will join the Rangers as Adrian Beltre's replacement. Profar was not in last night's lineup. The Rangers are off today.
Ronald Guzman has used the hitter-friendly environs to regain a .300 average after a brief dry spell. AA: Frisco 4, at Corpus Christi (HOU) 3
Record: 26-32, 7 GB
SP Pedro Payano: 4.1 IP, 4 H, 0 R, 4 BB, HBP, 3 SO, 0.96 ERA
RP Ryne Slack: 2.2 IP, 0 R, 3 SO, 0.52 ERA
LF Michael O'Neil: 2-4, HR (8), HBP, .285/.352/.508
Pedro Payano wriggled his way through 4.1 scoreless innings with very poor control. He issued five free passes and threw 44 balls and 45 strikes. Ryne Slack stranded two inherited runners in scoring position in the 5th. Payano has advanced two levels since last year's season-ending broken arm, but he's yet to regain the good control displayed throughout most of his career.
Meanwhile, Frisco managed four runs despite no hits with runners in scoring position and only six overall. Michael O'Neill hit his first AA homer. High-A: off Low-A: at Hickory 3, Greenville (BOS) 5
Record: 23-36, 12 GB
SP Edgar Arredondo: 4.2 IP, 8 H, 3 R, 1 BB, 1 HBP, 4 SO, 5.27 ERA
LF Franklin Rollin: 2-4, HR (3), .256/.288/.405
Hickory pleased a robust morning crowd of children with two 1st-inning runs and a rousing between-inning singalong of Frozen's "Let It Go." Afterwards, Hickory's bats were nearly silent aside from Franklin Rollin's solo homer.
Texas released IF Luis Terrero, a 2012 international signing in a class headed by Jairo Beras and including Juremi Profar and Ariel Jurado. Also released: last year's 32nd-round OF Travis Bolin, who made Hickory's Opening Day roster but was sent back to Extended Spring Training before the end of the month. Five Years Ago Yesterday

about the opposition's tendency to attack first-pitch fastballs. Welcome to every rehab/warmup start ever. Today's Starters:
AAA: Tyler Wagner
