Tuesday Morning Texas Rangers Update

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

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Levi Weaver recaps the Rangers' 3-1 loss to the New York Yankees as the team escaped the horror of being no-hit by New York.

Jeff Wilson offers some thoughts on the loss and has some praise for Nomar Mazara for being a mature hitter and breaking up the no-hitter while also killing an easy narrative.

T.R. Sullivan's game story focuses on, yes, the Rangers slumping at the plate but also Brett Nicholas hitting the first home run of his career which is certainly a nice highlight from an otherwise bad game for the offense.'s Mike Rosenbaum updates us on Joey Gallo launching bombs.

How does a .283/.421/.717 slash line with a 18/15 K/BB ratio sound to you?

Sullivan previews tonight's game between the Rangers and Yankees with A.J. Griffin on the mound for Texas against New York's Luis Severino. It's worth noting, however, that there's currently an 60-80 percent chance of severe thunderstorms around game time so they might either be in for a long night or a very short one.

Doug Brocail was on the DMN Ballsy Podcast to talk about what makes Cole Hamels so rad.

Finally, the folks at Fangraphs try to figure out what each team makes in revenue from their TV contracts. Craig Edwards figures the Rangers are among the top third in the league.

Have a great day.
