Rangers | Stressing pitchers defense in spring

Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington watched intently Thursday, Feb. 23, and Friday, Feb. 24, as his pitchers took fielding practice. He stressed defense when he met with pitchers and catcher prior to Thursday's first workout. "We put ourselves in predicaments that we shouldn't have been in. If you throw it away, you throw it away," pitching coach Mike Maddux said. "But if you throw it away because your footwork is not sufficient, then we have an issue. That's the big thing - fundamentals."
