Monday Morning Rangers Update

Koji's back!
Koji's back!

I guess the Rangers have a little work to do to get to 100 wins.

T.R. Sullivan's game story focuses on the Rangers failing to complete a sweep over the Twins even though Josh Hamilton had himself a nice game.

Richard Durrett has the Rapid Reaction to the Rangers' 6-5 loss against the Minnesota Twins.

Behind the DMN paywall, Evan Grant writes that the loss yesterday might be a blessing in disguise with the Twins giving the Rangers a preview of the type of offense the Tampa Bay Rays will bring to Arlington today.

Jeff Wilson's recap focuses on the flaccidity of Feldmania of late and how yesterday's game was a pretty sloppy affair.

Durrett writes that even with Roy Oswalt stewing in the bullpen, Ron Washington is sticking with Scott Feldman in the rotation for now.

Gerry Fraley writes about the streakiness of Feldman's season this year. Feldman now has a six-game losing streak, a six-game winning streak, and a current four-game losing streak this season.

Keith Whitmire writes about Craig Gentry's excellent home run robbing catch in yesterday's game that served as an oasis in a desert of defensive carelessness.

Sullivan's Notebook covers Yu Darvish being given the OK to start on Tuesday, Mike Olt expected to be in the lineup today, and other notes.

Wilson has some notes on Olt dealing with a case of plantar fasciitis, the return of Koji Uehara, and Derek Holland finally feeling all the way back from his sickness earlier in the season.

Lastly, the minor league seasons are beginning to wind down, which, as the DMN chronicles in their weekly slideshow, is probably good news for the other franchises around the league. Well, at least good news for those that have to face Leonys Martin.
