Saturday morning Rangers news and links

USA TODAY Sports

The post-game fireworks were, I'm thinking, the highlight of last night's game. The other positive bit of news was that Seattle beat the A's, so the Rangers didn't lose any ground to Oakland.

Jeff Wilson's game story takes aim at a Ranger offense "that has no punch and didn't put up much of a fight" last night.

Anthony Andro's game story also focuses on the Ranger offense, which had a bad night, saw Elvis Andrus ejected for arguing a called strike three, and had two players throw batting helmets after plays at first base.

Master Tesfatsion's game story? All about the offensive woes as well.

Randy Jennings has his Rapid Reaction at the ESPN Dallas blog.

Wilson has a story on the latest Ranger injury, Jeff Baker's sprained thumb, suffered during a pre-game high five. Baker missed yesterday's game, and could end up going on the disabled list.

Evan Grant writes that the Rangers have to decide today about what to do with Jurickson Profar.

Andro has a story on the Ryan family and their ties to baseball.

The S-T has a Q&A with Pudge Rodriguez.

Andro has quotes from Jon Daniels on Nelson Cruz and Jurickson Profar.

The S-T's notes touch on the Rangers not really having a plan in place at this point if Nelson Cruz were to be suspended, the status of Matt Harrison, Joakim Soria and Alexi Ogando, and Jurickson Profar and Elvis Andrus swapping places in the lineup.

The Rangers' website notes have stuff on Elvis getting ejected, Joakim Soria's bullpen, Alexi Ogando and Colby Lewis making progress, and Baker's injury.
