LAKELAND, Fla. - Twenty-four days from Friday, in Arlington, Texas, two teams will take the field as living testaments to the importance of roster depth. In the home dugout, the Rangers, their rotation missing two of its top three starters, Matt Harrison recovering from back stiffness, Derek Holland on the DL with a knee injury. In the visitor's dugout, a team whose trials and tribulations increased Thursday with the news that lefthander Cole Hamels had hit a bump in his road to recovery from biceps tendinitis.

TEMPE, Ariz. - By his own admission Don Mattingly hasn't spent a lot of time thinking about baseball's two newest rules, one allowing the use of instant replay and the other preventing catchers from blocking the plate if they don't have the ball.
TEMPE, Ariz. - Four batters into an expected two-inning stint, Angels reliever Dane De La Rosa gave up a walk, a hit batsman, a single and a grand slam to Los Angeles Dodgers left fielder Scott Van Slyke. And that wasn't even the worst part of his afternoon in Tempe Diablo Stadium.
Hanley Ramirez's range at shortstop hasn't changed much in the past couple years. But he keeps getting closer to third base.
What began as another scintillating Mike Trout play ended as a case study in baseball's emerging instant replay procedures.
