Sunday morning Rangers stuff

That wasn't fun last night. But today is a new day...

Jeff Wilson's game story talks about Yu Darvish's inability to pitch well against the Mariners.

T.R. Sullivan's game story looks at the struggles of Darvish and the offense yesterday.

David Collier has his Rapid Reaction up at the ESPN Dallas blog.

Gerry Fraley has his observations from yesterday up at the DMN Rangers blog.

Behind the paywall, Fraley has an article up about Darvish, though I'm not sure what it says, since it is behind the paywall.

Drew Davison has a story on Frisco righthander Neil Ramirez, who came into the season as one of the Rangers' top candidates if they needed a starter from the minor leagues, but who struggled in Round Rock and was ultimately demoted to AA.

The Rangers' website has a story on rehabbing pitchers Alexi Ogando, Koji Uehara, and Neftali Feliz.

Derek Holland was on a rehab assignment, and apparently, while rehabbing, he re-discovered the feel for his changeup, a pitch that was effective for him in the minors, but which he hasn't been throwing well since coming to the majors. Ron Washington and Mike Maddux were both apparently impressed with the changeups he threw on Friday.

The S-T's notes talk about Mike Napoli's injury, Matt Harrison's routine being thrown off by the All Star Game, and the imminent return of Alexi Ogando (who will be activated on Tuesday) and Koji Uehara (who will likely be activated on Wednesday).

The Rangers' website notes hit on Leonys Martin starting the past two days, Luis Martinez getting recalled with Mike Napoli hurt, and Ron Washington believing that Justin Smoak will figure it out and become a productive major leaguer.
