Minor league starters for Wednesday, 5/5/04 

Oklahoma -- Ryan Snare
Frisco -- Off
Stockton -- Wes Littleton and Jose Garcia
Clinton -- Williams Sarmiento and Tim Cunningham

John Hudgins and Wes Littleton were the Rangers' third and fourth round picks last summer. After signing, Hudgins was shut down for most of the summer, but Littleton had an electrifying run for Spokane in the Northwest League, vaulting him ahead of Hudgins in the pecking order, and leading some to speculate that he could be in Arlington as soon as this September. Littleton has struggled for Stockton so far this year, however, while Hudgins has come on strong, including striking out seven of the nine batters he faced in his three inning outing tonight.

Littleton had a decent outing last time out, walking 2 and striking out 2 in three shutout innings, but he needs to build on that...the Rangers need to see him come back with another strong outing, and show that he is back on track.
