Tuesday Morning Texas Rangers Update

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

Good morning. Had the Rangers won last night, it would have been a mile marker game we'd all look back on during the season. Instead, the Rangers lost so it's better left forgotten.

Levi Weaver recaps the back-and-forth extra innings loss suffered by the Rangers to, yet again, the Chicago White Sox.

Jeff Wilson's game story focuses on the Rangers having the opportunity to give Prince Fielder a birthday win but instead coming up empty despite several late rallies.

T.R. Sullivan writes that the Rangers played another intense game against Chicago but, just like the others this season, the White Sox came out ahead.

Evan Grant wonders if the Rangers are just fated to lose to these White Sox at this point.

In more reactions to the game, Wilson gives some love to Colby Lewis and throws some shade at Laz Diaz for his ump show performance last night.

Grant writes about Sunday's hero Bobby Wilson and the craziest five weeks of his career.

Jared Sandler offers up a slew of thoughts on the Rangers from over the last week or so including what they might do now that A.J. Griffin is on the shelf.

Grant writes that Derek Holland wants to be less predictable so that he can be more predictable (this makes sense, I swear).

Grant also has stats to show the most apparent reason for why Fielder is struggling this season.

Stefan Stevenson has some notes on Holland's review of his last outing, Shin-Soo Choo's outlook, and rotation options.

Sullivan notes that Cesar Ramos and Anthony Ranaudo are the most likely candidates for any spot start the Rangers need until Yu Darvish returns or Griffin gets healthy.

Avert your eyes, Tepid! Gil LeBreton writes about a few high profile prospects that might look like tempting trade bait should the Rangers remain contenders this summer.

Sullivan previews the second game of this three-game set between the Rangers and White Sox with Holland trying to shake off the worst start of his career.

Finally, on the DMN Ballzy podcast, JD spoke about the reasons for the recent catcher shuffle.

Have a great day.
