yes, there are :

The Dallas Morning News reports that Rangers manager Buck Showalter told Laynce Nix that his starting spot in center was not guaranteed, especially since Gary Matthews Jr. has been playing so well. "We have some good options out there," said Showalter.

smells of a platoon, especially early in the year

A definite step forward for the struggling left-handed hitter Gary Matthews Jr. has had a great spring, but Nix should remain the Rangers' primary center fielder as long as he keeps bringing up his average over the next week and a half.

I hope Nix wins the job, but for now, he's on my bench.

I'd liek to see how Uncle Buck is going to play him at the start of the year.
