Good morning.

Levi Weaver recaps the Rangers' 9-2 win over the Indians yesterday with Derek Holland and Elvis Andrus once again starring in Cleveland.

Jeff Wilson's game story focuses on Ian Desmond getting the Rangers off on the right foot as the offense exploded for nine runs.

T.R. Sullivan writes that Desmond also used baserunning trickery to keep piling on runs.

Evan Grant writes that Rangers management is at least going to have to talk about what to do with Jurickson Profar as he continues to impress in his temporary stint with the Rangers.

Wilson's reactions to Monday's win including the possibility of re-signing Desmond, Holland's body of work, and the Profar problem.

Brice Paterik wrote that Nomar Mazara is already running away with the Rookie of the Year and that's before he crushed one to Lake Erie last night.

Wilson has notes on, among other things, injured Shin-Soo Choo, Shawn Tolleson, Robinson Chirinos, and suspended Rougned Odor all working out in Frisco this week. The Rangers are winning right now without any of those guys and that's your starting catcher, closer, and arguably the two best position players from the Rangers second half West-clinching run last season. What.

After a 3 for 3 day with a home run and a walk, Mike Rosenbaum lists Joey Gallo among the top performers in minor league baseball yesterday because the Rangers' wealth of talent is pretty dang stupid right now.

Tim Cowlishaw went to a couple of mild night games in May at The Ballpark and has decided the Rangers don't need a new stadium with A/C.

Shane Jackson previews tonight's game in Cleveland with Colby Lewis looking to remain unbeaten as the Indians throw Corey Kluber at Texas.

Finally, Grant writes about pitching coach Doug Brocail's justifiable disdain for how high school pitchers are being overworked.

Have a good day!
