Good morning.

Stefan Stevenson reacts to the Rangers failing to sweep the Blue Jays but coming away with just their second series win of the season.

Keegan Matheson of MLB dot com recaps the 7-2 finale loss by the Rangers who saw their meager season-high three-game winning streak come to an end.

Levi Weaver’s game story implores you to look at the big picture because the small picture includes another Martin Perez dud.

Evan Grant writes that Perez’s fourth terrible start in five outings leaves the Rangers to wonder if Perez is hurt or just bad.

Stevenson writes that Perez, his catcher Chirinos, and members of the lineup were befuddled by the home plate umpire on Sunday.

Grant writes that if you thought April was bad, the schedule in May is even worse for the Rangers.

Jamey Newberg writes that Isiah Kiner-Falefa is getting the rare chance to show that his future might go beyond merely utility.

To that, Grant notes that Rougned Odor was supposed to miss three weeks and 19 days later his rehab has progressed to only doing lightly jogging.

And, lastly, Jeff Passan writes that there are seven teams — with Texas being the seventh — currently on pace to lose 100 games in what has been a pretty dreadful month of Major League Baseball across cities everywhere.

Have a nice day!
