Rangers' Michael Matuella: Throws off mound for first time since injury
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Matuella (elbow) threw pitches off a mound Monday for the first time since his 2016 season was cut short in July, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Monday's throwing session was an encouraging sign for the 22-year-old Rangers prospect, who appears close to being fully recovered after being shut down midseason with a strained elbow ligament. Matuella has flashed exciting potential as a hard-throwing right-hander, but has dealt with a worrisome amount of injuries, including undergoing Tommy John surgery shortly before being drafted. The key for Matuella in 2017 will be staying healthy, which could result in a breakout season.

Rangers' Carlos Gomez: Appears to be leadoff man heading into 2017
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Gomez seems to be in line to sit atop the Rangers' batting order for 2017, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

The electric outfielder had his fair share of struggles over the past couple seasons, but once he slotted into the pole position of the Rangers' lineup, Gomez batted .328 with a .391 OBP. He'll presumably have more opportunities to score runs and swipe bases in the leadoff spot, which will help Gomez's value as long as he can continue to hit like he did following his trade to the Rangers.

Rangers' Shin-Soo Choo: Likely to slot in as two-hitter
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Choo is expected to be the second hitter in the Rangers lineup, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

The veteran on-base machine had a tumultuous injury-filled season in 2016, but the Rangers are still insisting on plopping him right in front of their run producers. This would likely line Choo up to score more runs than he produces, which could work in his favor, given his strong walk rate. However, he needs to prove he can stay healthy all season -- something he failed to do last year.

Rangers' Preston Claiborne: Heads to Texas on minors deal
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Claiborne agreed to a minor league contract with the Rangers, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports.

Claiborne hasn't seen the majors since pitching 71.1 innings with the Yankees over the 2013 and 2014 seasons, putting together a 3.79 ERA in 62 relief appearances over that span. He missed all of 2015 with a shoulder injury, then posted a 2.38 ERA in 21.0 innings during his Double-A rehab stint last season. The 29-year-old will likely serve as organizational depth, but he carries some future intrigue if his shoulder can fully recover.

Rangers' Michael Matuella: Continues to progress through rehab
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Matuella (elbow) threw off a full mound on Monday, TR Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

This is just the next step in his rehab from Tommy John surgery, which kept the 2015 draft pick out all of last season. He still doesn't have a timetable at this point, and it looks like the Rangers are content taking things slow with the 22-year-old. We'll know more about his status as he continues to pitch more throughout spring.
