NEWBERG REPORT PLUS — AUGUST 22, 2006 has unveiled nearly complete rosters for this fall’s Arizona Fall League, identifying Ranger five farmhands as delegates to the Grand Canyon Rafters. The website indicates that righthanders Jesse Ingram and Danny Touchet, catcher Kevin Richardson, third baseman Travis Metcalf, and outfielder Anthony Webster will play for the Rafters, and that Texas has two more pitching slots it can fill (teams have been able to send six players in the past rather than seven).

Clinton manager Andy Fox will serve as bench coach for the Rafters, whose roster also includes Pirates reliever Jesse Chavez, the righthander that the Rangers shipped to the Pirates for Kip Wells last month.
