A few notes to start the spring

<>Not too many non-catcher position players have arrived. Among the ones in camp, David Murphy has the most service time. Chris Davis is here, along with Craig Gentry, Justin Smoak, Mitch Moreland and Brandon Boggs. Speaking of Boggs, he said he is two weeks away from being allowed to participate in full drills. He has been taking batting practice.

<>The Rangers continue to look for a catcher, with Jose Molina as their No. 1 target right now. He has the same agent as Toby Hall, who is in Rangers camp, but isn't in a hurry to sign until some other catchers set the early-spring market. A source said the Rangers offered Molina and Rod Barajas minor-league deals, but each declined.

<>Eric Hurley said he has thrown four or five light bullpen sessions recently, his first off a mound since having Tommy John surgery last year and missing the entire season. He's only throwing fastballs, and he knows of no timetable for him to pitch in a game.

<>According to Matt Harrison, the pitchers will hit the ground running in their first two workouts, throwing live batting practice on back-to-back days.
