Tuesday's morning from Surprise: Rangers tab Robbie Ross for today's start

Robbie Ross will start in today's A game vs. San Diego.

It's Ross's second start of spring training, as he continues to keep himself in the mix for the left-handed reliever opening in the Texas Rangers' bullpen. He allowed four runs (three earned) in his first Cactus League start, a game in which the stats were wiped away because of a rain out.

Neftali Feliz will start in the Double A game tonight, while Colby Lewis will start the Triple A game. Manager Ron Washington said the team prefers the starters going in minor league games so the team can monitor them better.

Here are a few other notes from Tuesday:

* Outfielder Craig Gentry is feeling better today, and is expected to go through the full workout. He isn't scheduled to play in today's game as of yet, but said he would consider backing up if he makes it through the workout well.

* Brandon Snyder is starting in leftfield today. He backed up in left on Monday night. Snyder has been working with Gary Pettis on playing the outfield, and could be a versatile option for the Rangers' bench.

* Yu Darvish will throw a bullpen on Wednesday. He was originally scheduled to throw one today, but the team has decided he only needs to throw one this week.
