|Martin Perez, Michael Kirkman go three innings vs. Giants |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(3/13/14) Rangers pitchers Martin Perez and Michael Kirkman both went three innings on Thursday, but saw different results against the Giants in Cactus League action.
Perez got the start and pitched well, allowing only one run on three hits and two walks while striking out two before being replaced by Kirkman in fourth inning. Kirkman surrendered a solo home run to Andrew Susac fourth inning. He allowed three runs on six hits and two walks while striking out five.
Perez has permitted four earned runs over eight innings through three Cactus League starts. Kirkman has allowed three runs over eight innings through three appearances (no starts).
|Rangers could turn to in-house candidate to fill out rotation |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(1/23/14) If the Rangers don't bring in a high-profile free agent starting pitcher, then they will have many in-house choices to replace Derek Holland, who is expected to miss half the season due to a knee injury. Among the candidates are Colby Lewis, Nick Tepesch, Michael Kirkman, Jose Contreras, Luke Jackson and Alex Gonzalez, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
However, the paper notes it "would seem slim" that Gonzalez, the team's 2013 first-round pick, and Jackson, the team's minor-league pitcher of the year, would make the opening day rotation.
"If you look at our guys that finished the year with us, it’s Yu Darvish and Martin Perez and that’s really about it," pitching coach Mike Maddux said Tuesday. "We’d like to have some of these guys step up. Some of these guys that were healthy need to continue to be healthy, and some of these guys who were not, we’d love for them to regain their health.
"But we’re really looking for these diamonds in the rough to step up and fill the voids that we have. There’s going to be some intra-staff competition for those spots, and it’s going to be the 12 best fits that we can set up."
