From Texas Rangers
ARLINGTON (AP) Rangers opening day starter C.J. Wilson is already back in Texas and working out in preparation for Friday’s game.
Wilson said Tuesday he’s having no issues with a left hamstring that tightened up last week and forced him out of his last spring training start in Arizona after only two innings.
The left-hander threw a 45-pitch bullpen session Monday before flying to Texas and says everything is ready for the opener against the Boston Red Sox.
Wilson gets the opening day start a year after making the transition from the bullpen and winning a career-high 15 games.
The Rangers were in Myrtle Beach, S.C., for an exhibition game against Coastal Carolina on Tuesday night.
