Solid start by Scott Feldman, followed up by another bad outing from the bullpen.
With the three runs allowed, the relief ERA shot up to 5.45. It is the worst in the majors by more than half a run. In May, when the Rangers went 19-9, the relief ERA was 2.64. For the first week of June: 10.93. It was 6.91 during the Rangers' awful April.
I don't even know what to say about the bullpen at this point.
Michael Young left yesterday's game with a tight groin, and German Duran is supposed to be called up today so the Rangers have an actual backup infielder. Josh Hamilton is likely to sit today, as well, with a viral infection. Grant also mentions in the notes that the replacement for Sidney Ponson will be either Eric Hurley or Kason Gabbard, with Hurley impressing with a solid outing last night.
Doug Mathis has made some mechanical adjustments that he thinks will help him keep the ball down better when he starts today.
