Good morning.

Joseph Ursery took a look back at the weekend where the Rangers rallied for a sweep of the A’s and a six game winning streak.

It isn’t all roses and makeout sessions, however, as’s Chris Vannini notes that Carlos Gomez is heading to the DL for a month or more.

WFAA’s Matt Fisher writes that the Rangers do have some depth options to replace Gomez while it appears that Jared Hoying will be the one to get the call.

Evan Grant writes that the other ailing Ranger, Shin-Soo Choo isn’t expected to miss much time and should avoid a DL trip.

Kevin Carter explains why Shohei Otani is dope just to get your hype meter running hot after hearing JD went to Japan to scope out Japan’s Babe Ruth.

T.R. Sullivan has an ol’ mailbag Q&A with real live Rangers fans. And, no, Joey Gallo isn’t going anywhere.

Mike Rosenbaum lists Tepid-Certified Dude Jonathan Hernandez as one of the top minor league performers from yesterday after tossing seven scoreless innings of one-hit ball for Class A Hickory.

Jeff Wilson writes that the Rangers are facing the Phillies this week for the first time since the Cole Hamels trade.

Vannini previews tonight’s opener with member of the Hamels trade Jerad Eickhoff facing off against Yu Darvish.

And, lastly, Grant writes about The Punch one year later.

Have a good day!
