Monday Morning Texas Rangers Update

A.J. Pierzynski: Fan Favorite - David Banks

The latest news and notes on the win streak butcher for the Ranger world

Clearly the Rangers have offended the Windy City by stealing all of its players over the last few years. The Geovany Soto, A.J. Pierzynski, Jeff Baker, Jason Frasor, Matt Garza, and Alex Rios Texas Rangers, after yesterday's loss, are 3-6 against teams from Chicago this season. The Rangers have lost each of their three series against Chicago teams. Those two teams are a combined 103-147 otherwise.

Todd Wills provides the Rapid Reaction to the Rangers' latest loss to the Chicago White Sox. The Rangers are now 20-24 against Chicago teams during the Elvis Andrus era.

MLB.com's Cash Kruth recaps a game where Garza allowed five runs -- after allowing at least four runs in every start this month -- while the Rangers went 0-7 with runners in scoring position.

Jeff Wilson's game story focuses on Garza's lack of the will to win yesterday as well as Adrian Beltre pinning the loss on himself for going 0-2 in two key at-bats late in the game with runners on base. But, as Wilson also notes, at least the A's lost.

Kruth handles MLB.com Notebook duty and reports on Tanner Scheppers' struggles, Leonys Martin's low pain tolerance, and Yu Darvish's killer instinct being muted on Saturday night partially due to having leg cramps.

Wilson's notes cover Martin going from being concerned that he broke his ankle to likely being in the lineup tonight, Scheppers' missing breaking stuff, and a secret weapon for Kyle Seager.

On the DMN blog, Evan Grant as a couple of updates on the rehab efforts of Nick Tepesch and Alexi Ogando.

Finally, Master Tesfatsion previews tonight's thrilling American League West showdown that will feature Travis Blackley and the Texas Rangers vs Joe Saunders and the Seattle Mariners.
