Saturday morning Rangers stuff

Saturday morning Rangers news and links

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, folks...

So much for that four game winning streak.

Jeff Wilson's game story talks about the Rangers having played "losing baseball" behind Gallardo.

Gerry Fraley writes that Yovani Gallardo's starts this season have been characterized by a lack of support from his teammates.

Hal Bodley says that things are looking better for the Rangers, who have reinforcements coming.

Josh Hamilton and Mitch Moreland are starting rehab assignments this weekend.

Moreland is expected to be activated on Wednesday, but there's no clear timetable on when Hamilton will be back in the majors.

The DMN has an update on various injured Rangers.

T.R. Sullivan has a story on Roman Mendez's childhood, and the influence his mother and grandmother had on him.

We talk about the Rangers' bad luck with injuries, but yesterday was a reminder that Texas isn't the only team that has setbacks.  Both the starting pitchers for the A's working their way back from Tommy John surgery, Jarrod Parker and A.J. Griffin, suffered setbacks yesterday, with Parker leaving a rehab game after collapsing on the mound clutching his elbow, and Griffin being shut down due to shoulder problems.

The S-T's notes talk about Hamilton, Moreland, Derek Holland and Leonys Martin

Sullivan's notes talk about Leonys, the Royals projected starters, and Holland.
