Monday Morning Texas Rangers Update

The latest news on the Texas Rangers and finding yourself stranded

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning. Who knows, maybe the Rangers will be the first baseball team to never win consecutive games in a season.

Sorry. That's a depressing way to start off the morning links. Let's try this: Evan Grant writes that the Rangers are showing signs of putting together a historically bad season. Whoops.

MLB.com's Christian Corona recaps yesterday's 7-1 loss to the A's which saw the Rangers' offense revert back to leaving a million runners on base.

Jeff Wilson writes that a day after perhaps the best win of the season on Saturday night, the Rangers came out on Sunday and couldn't get the big hit.

Anthony Andro's game story is on the latest of many days where the Rangers were frustrated at the plate.

WFAA.com's Levi Weaver acknowledges what we've all feared. The Rangers are a bad team. So, with that out of the way, he takes a look at how you can enjoy the season anyway.

Grant writes that Jon Daniels isn't going to wait much longer to mix things up whether that be demoting players, benching regulars, or firing coaches.

Andro checks in on Yu Darvish who is rehabbing well but misses speaking English with his teammates.

Stefan Stevenson has notes on Darvish's recovery, Jeff Banister's return to Houston, injury timetables for various Rangers, and a note that, as a reliever, Keone Kela doesn't care about being the winning pitcher.

Corona previews tonight's series opener in Houston as the Rangers try to end the Astros' 10 game winning streak.

Over at Lone Star Ball Facebook, we asked which currently injured Ranger you're most looking forward to seeing play this season. I personally want to see Matt Harrison just to see if it's possible to return from an imploded spine.

Finally, Stevenson checks in on the farm and writes about Chi Chi Gonzalez performing well in Triple-A despite a 1-3 record.

Have a nice day.
