Rangers' Kyle Blanks won't play in outfield at start of camp
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said Kyle Blanks, who will be in camp as a non-roster invitee, is making progress in his rehab from a calf injury, per FOX Sports Southwest.

Blanks isn't expected to factor into the left-field situation at the outset of camp since Texas wants him to focus on getting back to 100 percent. He will be limited to playing at first base and DH initially.

"He's one of those guys we'll probably take it slow early on," Daniels said. "There's some sentiment that as good as athlete he is for a big man to help keep him healthy we're probably going to keep him out of the outfield, at least early on. He's checked every box. He's been rehabbing out in Arizona."
