Monday Morning Texas Rangers Update

The latest news and notes on the AL West Champion Texas Rangers

Kelvin Kuo-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

I could pretty much just post this and close this thing down for today:

But I won't.

Levi Weaver recaps Nomar Mazara's amazing debut, but also the Rangers' 3-1 loss to Anaheim.

T.R. Sullivan writes that the youngest player in the game was the only Ranger to solve Jered Weaver's junk pitches yesterday.

Evan Grant writes that Mazara did the talking with his bat after Jeff Banister penciled him in an important spot in the lineup.

Jeff Wilson has notes from after yesterday's game on Mazara's debut, Brett Nicholas getting a chance, and Martin Perez's "bad" outing.

Kate Morrison gives her thoughts on Mazara and Nicholas getting the opportunity to advance to the big leagues.

Grant writes that the Rangers will have to balance a rookie and a career backup behind the plate as they look for more catching options.

Jim Callis writes that Mazara is capable of stepping in and filling Choo's shoes over the next six weeks or so.

Anthony Castrovince writes that Mazara could do Nomar in his debut. No, seriously, that's his pun not mine.

Grant notes that the Rangers' minor league system moved to 15-1 on the young season with Hickory being the first to fall yesterday.

Sullivan previews tonight's series opener against Seattle with Colby Lewis taking the mound for Texas and the Rangers getting their second crack at Hisashi Iwakuma.



Have a great day.
