Monday Morning Texas Rangers Update

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

MLB: Texas Rangers at Seattle Mariners Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Levi Weaver recaps the Rangerslatest gut punch loss, though this one had a familiar conclusion off the bat of Kyle Seager.

Among Jeff Wilson’s reactions to Sunday’s loss is a note that the only place colder than the Rangers’ bullpen is the press box at Safeco.

T.R. Sullivan writes that it was walks that killed the Rangers as Texas leads the American League in free passes.

Wilson writes that Jose Leclerc, a heretofore bullpen bright spot, was the latest member to let us down (though, it should be noted that Leclerc is probably injured right now but trying to play through it).

Evan Grant writes the Austin Bibens-Dirkx story which is about as feel good as we’re going to get so far this season.

Wilson writes that Tyson Ross will toss a simulated game with rehab in the minors next on the docket if things go well.

Grant writes that Nomar Mazara may get more time off against left-handed starters.

Sullivan previews tonight’s red hot interleague action between the Rangers and San Diego Padres with Nick Martinez facing off against that scoundrel Trevor Cahill.

And, lastly, John Paschal goes on a year-long deep dive to confirm what you already suspected: If you’re not the Yankees, MLB Network doesn’t care about you.

Have a nice day!
