Rangers Injury Report

  • José Leclerc (elbow soreness): Rangers general manager Chris Young announced on Monday that Leclerc will undergo Tommy John surgery on Tuesday. Typical recovery time for the surgery is 12-15 months.
  • Khris Davis (Grade 2 left quad strain): Davis is not quite a week into a 3-4 week prognosis. He has begun a light rehab, but has yet to participate in any baseball activity.
  • Josh Jung (left foot stress fracture): Jung had successful surgery last Monday, and is back in Arizona beginning his rehab. His estimated recovery time is 6-8 weeks.
  • Jonathan Hernández (low-grade UCL sprain): Hernández will have a four-week follow-up MRI next week, at which point next steps will be determined.
  • Willie Calhoun (groin tightness): Logged nine at-bats in a simulated game on Sunday in Surprise, and will continue to DH in camp games in the coming days. Calhoun will not be ready for Opening Day.
  • Brett Martin (lower-back tightness): Martin has been able to get back into game action with three Cactus League appearances. He is about one week behind Opening Day.
  • Demarcus Evans (right lat strain): Evans is throwing bullpens and is scheduled to appear in upcoming minor league games in Arizona. He will not be ready for Opening Day.
  • Joely Rodríguez (sprained ankle): Rodríguez threw a live BP on Monday and is progressing well. He will not likely be ready until mid-April.
  • Brock Burke (left shoulder surgery in 2020): The Rangers like his progress, which is slow and steady.
  • Sam Huff (Grade 2 hamstring strain): Huff is progressing well and is in the latter stages of his rehab. He will undergo one more MRI and go from there.

Welcoming Fans to Globe Life Field

Though fans have watched baseball at Globe Life Field for 2020's National League Championship Series and World Series, Monday night was the first time the Rangers played any kind of game with paying customers in attendance.

My guess wasn't too off base. Monday night's paid attendance was 12,911.
