Good morning.

T.R. Sullivan recaps Matt Moore’s latest disappointing start as the Rangers fell to the Astros 6-1 on Mother’s Day.

Worse yet, as Levi Weaver writes, the Rangers have probably lost Adrian Beltre for a while with another leg injury.

Stefan Stevenson writes that Beltre could be headed back to the DL after injuring the same hamstring that cost him a couple of weeks.

Sullivan notes that if Beltre misses significant time, Isiah Kiner-Falefa could hop back into the starting lineup.

Nearly lost in the shuffle between Beltre’s injury, Mother’s Day, and another loss, Weaver writes about Brandon Mann making his MLB debut after a sixteen year wait.

Sullivan writes about Mann’s journey from the minors, Japan, independent leagues to a 33-year-old Major League rookie.

Jamey Newberg writes about the adjustments Nomar Mazara has made as a hitter to transform from a bonus baby to the Big Chill we know today.

And, lastly, Elvis Andrus announced on Mother’s Day yesterday that he’s going to be a proud new papa for a second time.

Have a nice day!
