Good morning. Oil up the hinges on your fallout shelter. The 2015 Hall of Fame class will be announced today. Hopefully Twitter's outage last night was from them performing maintenance on their servers in preparation for the baseball nerd rage.
MLB.com's Barry M. Bloom writes that greats like Pedro Martinez, Randy Johnson, and John Smoltz will likely be elected to the Hall of Fame around 1 p.m. today and then there are a whole bunch of other great candidates who probably won't make it this year because old dudes who haven't even covered the sport in decades hate the 1990s.
Anthony Andro covers the big news from yesterday: The Rangers finally made a big splash by bringing back August Player of the Month Adam Rosales.
Calvin Watkins pried himself away from Dallas Cowboys phantom flag coverage long enough to report on Rosales re-signing with Texas to man the utility infielder spot on the bench.
Evan Grant notes that, to make room for Rosales' re-addition to the roster, the Rangers designated Matt West for assignment.
D.J. Shorts writes that the Rangers also signed RHP reliever Juan Carlos Oviedo to a minor league deal yesterday. When Oviedo was good at pitching it was like five or more years ago and he was known as Leo Nunez.
If you missed it yesterday, JD doused the Hot Stove with ice water after some were trying to attribute a few tendrils of smoke to the Rangers in regards to James Shields.
Lastly, I enjoy that this is already what Google Image Search looks like when you search for "Adam Rosales Rangers":
