Monday Morning Texas Rangers Update

Where would we be without Choo? - Tom Pennington

The number one source for all your latent elbow soreness

Good morning.

ESPN Dallas' Randy Jennings had the Rapid Reaction to yesterday's Mother's Day 5-2 loss to the Boston Red Sox.

Jeff Wilson's recap focuses on the Red Sox getting to Robbie Ross Jr. early while the bats stayed quiet.

MLB.com's Christian Corona notes that Ross Jr. had his third poor outing in a row even though he settled down and gave the Rangers some innings.

Anthony Andro's game story covers yet another inconsistent start from the rotation dooming the Rangers before they ever came to bat.

Gerry Fraley writes that at least the Rangers get to face the Astros next as the team looks to avoid dropping below .500 as late as May for the first time since the 2009 season.

Landon Haaf writes that youngsters Rougned Odor and Luis Sardinas have passed Ron Washington's smell test so far.

Andro writes that Martin Perez may be heading to the disabled list with left elbow inflammation which is bad news though, thankfully, an MRI revealed no structural damage.

Corona handles the MLB.com Notebook and covers Perez's status, Nick Tepesch's expected debut, Elvis Andrus feeling comfortable in the No. 2 spot, and other notes.

Drew Davison has notes on Perez's elbow, the team not overlooking the Astros, and Colby Lewis looking to rebound after his worst start of the season.

MLB.com's Brian McTaggart previews tonight's game between Texas and Houston in Lewis' first start against the American League Astros.

Lastly, Fraley has a blog post on Scott Baker electing to return to Round Rock to provide pitching depth rather than accept free agency after he cleared waivers. I suspect we'll be seeing Baker again sooner rather than later.
