Gerry Fraley has a rundown of the minor league action.

Evan Grant writes that the Rangers have faced more AL ERA leaders than any other team, though whether that is a cause or effect of the Rangers' record is an open question.

Grant also notes that with Michael Kickham being claimed, the Rangers have made space on the 40 man roster by moving Ryan Rua to the 60 day DL.

Leonys Martin is in a wrist brace after his diving play, because of course he is.

Rougned Odor is working his way out of his slump by throwing his bat because, well, why not?

"We knew we weren't going to go all year without stringing back to back wins together," noted Jeff Banister, concluding that he expected the next time would come sometime in August.

Steve Hunt takes a look at Frisco and observes that they are stocked with prospects once again.

Anthony Andro says that Banister isn't the first Ranger manager to get off to a rocky start.

Wandy Rodriguez and the Rangers offense were the improbable heroes in last night's victory.  The win was Rodriguez's first since 2013.

Don't look now, but the suck may be washing off some notably sucking Rangers.  But, hey, it's suck or the DL, take your pick.

Rougned Odor is confident despite his struggles, probably due to the therapeutic bat hurling I mentioned earlier.

And, finally, here's a video about a dog with a neurological condition.
