It's about that time for real baseball that actually counts, and we couldn't be more excited.

Here's what we know.

There are two catchers: Robinson Chirinos and the newly acquired Bryan Holaday.

There are five infielders: Mitch Moreland, Rougned Odor, Elvis Andrus, Adrian Beltre and utility man Hanser Alberto.

There is one designated hitter: Prince Fielder.

There are five outfielders: Shin-Soo Choo, Delino DeShields, Ian Desmond, Ryan Rua and Justin Ruggiano.

There are four starters: Cole Hamels, Martin Perez, Colby Lewis and Derek Holland.

There are seven relief pitchers: Shawn Tolleson, Sam Dyson, Jake Diekman, Tom Wilhelmsen, Tony Barnette, Keone Kela and Andrew Faulkner.

That makes 24.

If the Rangers choose to carry Griffin on Opening Day, that'd make 25, but why do that when they can have an extra reliever such as Phil Klein or Cesar Ramos for the first four games?
