Rangers pitchers get fielding 'refresher course'
ARLINGTON -- Rangers manager Ron Washington wanted his pitchers to be better fielders this season. That was a high priority and so far they have made just one error in their first 18 games.

But they were all still out on the field four hours before Wednesday's game with the Yankees for another pitchers' fielding practice, known all around baseball as PFP.

"I told you at some point they'd do it," Washington said. "We decided to break up what they've been doing. They usually come out early to throw and run for their conditioning. There's nothing wrong with a refresher course."

"As much as PFP becomes monotonous, it is that important," reliever Joe Nathan said. "We understand these things affect ballgames. If you're going to do it, you might as well focus and get better at it."
