The latest news and notes on the American League leading Texas Rangers

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning. I'm glad the Rangers are getting rested up for the second half of the season but I'm sure by 5:00 pm I'll be wishing there was a game tonight.

Levi Weaver recaps the Rangers' first-half finale loss to the Twins if you're interested in reliving that monstrosity.

Stefan Stevenson reacts to the Rangers trudging to the All-Star break with a woeful performance yesterday.

T.R. Sullivan notes that it's not all bad, the Rangers still have the best record in the American League at the All-Star break. I'll take it.

Stevenson gives you five reasons not to panic about the recent slump by the Rangers.

The DMN's Adam Grosbard writes about Elvis Andrus' strong first half which has impressed manager Jeff Banister.

Kevin Sherrington writes that the Rangers need a break, a starting pitcher or two, and a short memory right now.

Speaking of starting pitchers, Dave Sessions notes that Yu Darvish threw 72 pitches in his second rehab start and could start the second half with the Rangers.

Jeff Wilson writes about Futures Gamer Travis Demerritte transforming himself from PED suspended outcast to remade nomadic prospect.

Fangraphs' David Laurila writes about Tony Barnette's journey to become an unsung part of the Rangers' first half success.

Have a nice day!
