Monday afternoon from Surprise: Craig Gentry out of #Rangers lineup

Craig Gentry doesn't know what is bothering him, but it is enough to keep him out of tonight's lineup. He is scheduled to go see a doctor today or Tuesday to find out the diagnosis.

"Just tired, I don't know what it is," Gentry said. "The past few days I feel like I'm going to faint."

Gentry left Sunday's game with what the team called "dehydration," but Gentry doesn't believe that is the problem.

It's been a disappointing spring for Gentry, who had minor setbacks with hamstring and wrist injuries earlier.

Here are a few other notes from Monday:

* Brad Hawpe said he would not be willing to take an assignment to Triple A Round Rock at this point. "Not right now," Hawpe said. "I want to play in the big leagues. If I can't play in the big leagues right now, I've got to re-evaluate it." Hawpe, who had Tommy John elbow reconstructive surgery in Aug. 2011, has not played in the outfield yet, although he believes he will be able to by mid-April

* Conor Jackson, on the other hand, understands that he could be a candidate to go to Triple A. He knows he hasn't had the best spring training, and is focused on making an impression the final week of spring training. "I just want to play baseball, and get everyday at-bats," Jackson said.

* Neftali Feliz will start in a Double A game on Tuesday instead of a major league game. Colby Lewis is scheduled to throw in the Triple A game. The team has not announced who will start the A game.
