Scott Feldman's bid to win a spot in the starting rotation got off to a rocky start as the right-hander was pounded for nine hits and seven runs in 1 2/3 innings of work against Chicago. Feldman faced 15 batters, with 10 of them reaching. There were pitching bright spots as Luis Mendoza worked 2 1/3 innings, allowing one hit and a walk. Jarrod Saltalamacchia accounted for two of the nine Texas hits with a pair of doubles. Former Rangers Milton Bradley did not make the trip to Surprise as he's nursing a sore quad.
