Washington said so far the process is working for two reasons. One is the umpires are being patient in giving Washington time to decide on a challenge or not.
"The umpires are very cooperative," Washington said. "They want to get it right too."
Secondly, Washington said the Rangers are getting the information quickly from Prebynski to Bogar to the manager on the field. On Tuesday, Bogar signaled Washington not to challenge the first play, but to do so on the pickoff.
"It has been quicker than I expected," Washington said. "I expected I would have to jaw a little bit before I get the signal."
There could be a time when Prebynski is undecided and Washington said, "Then I'll go with what I feel in my gut."
