Some notes on today's intrasquad game

SURPRISE, Ariz. -- The Rangers held an intrasquad game on Nolan Ryan Field (the main back field) on Friday morning with a few scouts and front office folks watching. Some quick notes:

* Endy Chavez, Doug Deeds, Jose Feliz, Jose Ruiz and Chad Tracy were the five batters that hit against all pitchers.

* LHP Darren Oliver went three innings and gave up two runs on six hits with no walks and two strikeouts. He faced 15 batters. Zach Jackson allowed one hit and had one strikeout to the nine batters he faced in three innings.

* RHP Alexi Ogando went two innings because it was the same day as his scheduled live hitter session. He didn't allow a hit or run to seven batters he faced, getting four ground balls (one was an error) and three fly balls. He mixed up his pitches and was pretty efficient out there.

* LHP Miguel De Los Santos gave up a run (on a solo homer by Deeds) and had a walk in his lone inning of work. LHP Zach Phillips allowed a run on two hits with a walk one inning.

* Tracy was one homer shy of the cycle.

* Various minor leaguers played defense. Jurickson Profar seems to stand out whenever he's out there, and had a couple of nice plays on Friday. He showed good range and quick movement. I overheard one coach gushing about him and how good his instincts are at short.
