A relatively large chunk of time had passed since the Texas Rangers last made some baseball-related news. Apparently they were saving it all for Friday.
First up was agreeing to a contract extension with manager Chris Woodward. His deal now runs through 2023 with a club option for 2024.
Then came the setting of the reserve list, better known as the 40-man roster, and the addition of three prospects to keep them from being exposed to the Rule 5 draft. Two were easy calls, right-hander Ricky Vanasco and infielder Ezequiel Duran, and the third, righty Ronny Henriquez, was always a possibility.
Along with that came taking right-handers Kyle Cody and Edwar Colina off the 40-man roster and assigning them outright to Triple A Round Rock. And from that came the most intriguing comment of the day.
