Tuesday Morning Texas Rangers Update

New, comments

The latest news and notes on the American League West Champion Texas Rangers

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Levi Weaver recaps the Rangers losing to the Brewers by a lot of runs for some reason despite six hits combined from Elvis Andrus and former Brewer Carlos Gomez.

Despite the loss, Ryan Posner notes that Elvis continues to do his part with his 3-for-4 night last night.

Stefan Stevenson reacts to the loss but notes that former Brewer Jeremy Jeffress' scoreless outing in his return to the mound are positives from last night.

Posner writes about Jeffress getting in his first game since August 23 and how Tony Barnette could pitch this week for the first time since Sept. 4 as the bullpen gets healthy in time for the postseason.

As if this Morning Update didn't have enough Milwaukwardness to it, MLB.com's Mike Bauman writes that former Brewer Jonathan Lucroy is a significant difference-maker for Texas.

Kate Morrison writes about my favorite topic: Adrian Beltre and the joy therein.

Yu's brother Sho Darvish was convicted for gambling in Japan and plans to change his surname. Poor Sho Darvish. Sho Darvish is the Frank Stallone of Darvishes.

Posner previews tonight's contest between the Brewers and Rangers as A.J. Griffin takes up the quest for home field advantage that the Rangers lost advantage of with their lost to Milwaukee last night.

Finally, baseball is a force for good. Baseball heals us:

Have a good day!
