SURPRISE (105.3 The Fan) - Shan and RJ are out in Surprise for Rangers Spring Training this week and on Tuesday morning they were joined by the manager of the Texas Rangers, Chris Woodward.

Here are some of the highlights:

What do you say to the Rangers fan that's disappointing in the offseason?

"I'm actually really excited. There were obviously some guys that we went after that we didn't get. I'm not worried about that, though," Woodward said. "I felt like we gave them decent offers and we didn't sell our soul to get them. The guys we did get are quality. We have a good pitching staff and I think and we're really set up this year. ... Listen, we really want to win this year but we haven't sold our soul for anything in the future."

Do you expect Corey Kluber to return to his 2017 form? 

"I do. I think he feels that way as well. We'll see where the (velocity) is at on his fastball, but everything else is very similar as far as the characteristics go. The shape of his pitches, the spin of his pitches, it's all pretty much matching up to what he used to be, which is really really good for us."
