David Ortiz has been taken out of the game with a bruised left elbow after getting hit by a pitch.
Ortiz likes to crowd the plate, so his getting hit is not something rare. X-rays will need to be taken, but let's call this a day-to-day situation at present.ANALYST: Ivar G. Anderson
The Rangers released Ryan Ludwick on Sunday.
Ludwick was notified a couple days back that he would not be making the big-league team and was allowed to search for another team. He has struggled in Spring Training and hasn't been able to get over the .700 OPS mark the last two seasons. The Rangers will look internally to create outfield options for the 2015 season.
