Saturday morning Rangers news and links

MLB: Pittsburgh Pirates at Texas Rangers Jim Cowsert-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, everyone...

The Rangers lost to the Pirates, 9-1, last night.

The S-T's game story talks about Cole Hamels' lack of command leading to the Pirates chasing him early.

Evan Grant has his "Three Takeaways" from yesterday's game, and wonders how long the Rangers can stick with the struggling Mitch Moreland and Prince Fielder. Given that Joey Gallo was up this week and got one whole at bat, my guess is that Jeff Banister isn't interested in doing anything with Moreland or Prince anytime soon.

Shawn Tolleson is taking family medical leave to be with his ailing father.

Evan Grant ranks the best rotations in the American League.

The S-T talks to the architect who designed Globe Life Park, in the aftermath of the news that it will be replaced in a few years.

Evan Grant speculates about the possibility of Jurickson Profar staying with the Rangers beyond Rougned Odor's suspension.

The S-T's notes talk about Robinson Chirinos, Shawn Tolleson, and the tribute to the 1996 team that the Rangers will be doing.

The Rangers' website notes talk about Chirinos, Jurickson Profar, the 1996 team, and some injured Rangers.
