Here's your wakeup call -- a combination of newsworthy and/or interesting baseball tidbits -- for Monday, April 8 (for news on all other sports, click here):

The headline -- "Darvish, Weaver hurt in Rangers' win over Angels" -- sounds worse than it is: Yu Darvish has a blister, and Jered Weaver has a bruise on his left -- i.e., non-pitching -- elbow. (AP)

Some other aces, though, have injured prides today. Like David Price. (AP)

And Justin Verlander. (AP)

To the surprise of no one, Carlos Marmol is out as Cubs closer. (AP)

And to the surprise -- and anger -- of himself, Marvin Freeman is on the DL. (AP)

Will Josh Reddick join him there? We'll probably find out today. (CSN Bay Area)
