News
Rangers outfielder Leonys Martin said one of his goals for the 2015 season will be to improve his baserunning skills.  He managed 31 stolen bases on 43 attempts in 2014 for a 72.1 percent success rate, which ranked 28th among major-league qualifiers, per The Dallas Morning News

Martin said he focused this offseason on getting better jumps when running. 

“It was 100 percent concentration on my baserunning,” Martin said of his offseason work. “I’ve got to do a better job.”

Martin added he also hopes to spend more time in the leadoff spot this season. He had a .354 on-base percentage in 164 plate appearances batting leadoff in 2014.

“I’ve been leadoff all the time in my career,” Martin said. “I’m ready.”

News
Rangers pitcher Tanner Scheppers has impressed during camp, according to MLB.com.

Scheppers missed a large portion of last season due to an elbow issue. He was able to throw batting practice on Thursday, and drew rave reviews from pitching coach Mike Maddux. "He's coming out free and easy with a loose arm," Maddux said. "He's got a little attitude, but he always does."

Scheppers said he was just glad to be back on the mound. "I'm seriously just happy to be out there," Scheppers said. "It has been seven months since I've faced hitters. I'm just happy to be playing baseball and feeling great."

The 28-year-old posted a 9.00 ERA over 23 innings last season.

News
Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus had one of the worst seasons of his career in 2014, and he thinks he's figured out why. 

Andrus told Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News that, heading into last season, he did very little offseason work. He arrived at spring training out of shape and hurt his shoulder early in the season. 

As a result, Andrus had a career-low .263 average, the fifth-lowest OPS in the American League and 18 errors. 

This past winter, Andrus was among of 12 Rangers that stayed in town to work out regularly. He also did yoga and Pilates for the first time, helping him to get into the best shape in his career. 

"Last year, that was an off-season that I hope never happens again in my career,” Andrus told Fraley. “It taught me the don’t-do-it part of the game."

News
The Rangers will be cautious with Mitch Moreland this spring, according to MLB.com.

Moreland had ankle surgery last June, and the team is going to bring him along slowly early in camp. Moreland will be held back from running for a bit, and will be limited in how many grounders he takes at first. Moreland said he feels good, but acknowledges that the team wants to be extra careful. 

"I feel good, but the training staff has talked with me and got me on a good solid routine to make sure I come out of camp feeling good and feeling healthy," Moreland said. "So we're playing it over-cautiously so I'll be ready to roll by Day 1."

Moreland is also expected to play the outfield this season, but the team is going to wait until later in camp to get him out there.

The 29-year-old Moreland hit .246/.297/.347 over 167 at-bats last year.

Shoulder - 60-day DL. Likely out for season (Updated - 2/24/15)
News
The Rangers have claimed relief pitcher Edgar Olmos on waivers from the Mariners, reports MLB.com. To make room, the team placed Jurickson Profar on the 60-day DL.

"He had a good year in Triple-A last year," Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said. "We'll bring him in, let our pitching coaches work with him and see what we've got."

Olmos went 3-3 with a 4.06 ERA between two stints in the minors in 2014. He added 60 strikeouts and allowed 71 hits over 77 2/3 innings.

"His fastball really rides and gets in on hitters pretty good," Rangers scouting director Josh Boyd said. "Harnessing his command is something we hope to get over the hump. Stuff-wise, the ability to have that kind of velocity is something we want to take a look at."

Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish was pleased after his latest throwing session on Wednesday, per the Dallas Morning News. Darvish, who missed the final weeks of the season due to elbow inflammation, threw 30 pitches to live hitters in a batting-practice format. It was the first time he has faced hitters since Aug. 9.

"I was able to do some things I'd worked on in the bullpen," Darvish said. "I felt power on some pitches. It felt good."

Rangers outfielder Shin-Soo Choo isn't going to go all out yet, according to MLB.com.

Choo had season-ending elbow surgery last August, but feels pretty good in camp. He's been able to participate in every drill with outfielders thus far, but added that he's not going to push himself too hard. "It's a long Spring Training," Choo said. "There are going to be some days when I'm sore, but no issues. I'm not worried about it."

Choo, 32, hit .242/.340/.374 over 445 at-bats last year.
