• The Rangers are considering the possibility of adding a seventh coach, which is now allowed under new Major League rules. They could opt for the recent trend of adding an assistant hitting coach to work with Dave Magadan.

• Magadan after working with Jurickson Profar this week at the Ballpark in Arlington: "He's as advertised. Always has a smile on his face, just like what I said about Leonys [Martin], very open. Not that I'm coming here changing guys, just little things you say to guys you feel can make them a little more consistent. He's 19 years old, loves being out here. If you let him, he'll hit for two hours in the cage. A lot of energy, a lot of positive energy, and that's a good thing."

• Profar had his winter-ball season in the Dominican Republic cut short by some right forearm soreness, but said the problem has gone away.

"Maybe I was tired," he said. "I rested and now I'm 100 percent."
