Monday Morning Texas Rangers Update

Celebrating Pudge Rodriguez and Adrian Beltre’s immortality since July 30, 2017

MLB: Texas Rangers at Minnesota Twins Brad Rempel-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Levi Weaver recaps yesterday’s 6-5 loss for the Rangers which sent Texas packing for New York with a series split against Minnesota.

Jeff Wilson reacts to the loss and writes that a week out from hitting No. 3,000, Adrian Beltre’s task for the rest of the season remains difficult.

Evan Grant writes about the offense going dormant again after putting up five runs in the first inning and none for the other eight.

T.R. Sullivan writes about Beltre’s weird day of hitting a three-run home run but also getting hit in the head by a foul ball during the loss to Minnesota.

Wilson writes that Beltre stayed in the game after undergoing concussion protocol because he’s got “hard-headed guy.”

Sullivan notes that Tyson Ross tossed seven innings and allowed just one run in a rehab start for Frisco but he might not rejoin the Rangers for another week.

Grant notes that Jake Diekman will have to wait to go on rehab as the Rangers want him to continue building strength.

Darvish booty Willie Calhoun makes William Boor’s Top Prospect Performers for hitting two dingers for Round Rock yesterday which makes four in five games with the Express.

Gerard Gilberto recaps Round Rock’s 5-4 win made possible by Calhoun’s latest laser show.

And, lastly, Michael Wilbon went out of his way to say that no one cares about Adrian Beltre because he plays for Texas. If Adrian Beltre is sliding under the national radar that sounds more like a Michael Wilbon and national media problem than ours.

Have a nice day.
