MLB: Kansas City Royals at Texas Rangers Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning. Apparently yesterday was send your beat writer to Seattle early day.

Saad Yousuf recaps for The Athletic the Rangers’ 5-3 loss where Cole Hamels was out-hammed by Jason Hammel.

Dic Humphrey writes for MLB dot com that unlike Saturday, the Rangers couldn’t climb back from an early hole yesterday despite dingers from Joey Gallo and Robinson Chirinos.

Peter Dawson reacts to the game where Texas had a few golden opportunities to come back and win the game and series yesterday but couldn’t get it done.

T.R. Sullivan writes that the Rangers intend to stock up on pitching and infielders at next week’s MLB Draft.

The DMN has a handy Mock Draft roundup for you to peruse ahead of the draft. The current consensus is, of course, that there is no consensus.

Jamey Newberg assesses the future at third base after Joey Gallo said he doesn’t like playing the hot corner.

Don’t look now but everyone’s forever under-the-radar prospect for the Rangers Anderson Tejeda is really starting to hit for High-A Down East and today he is the focus of Mike Rosenbaum’s top prospect performers after a 4-for-5 day at the plate with two dongs, a double, and four runs scored yesterday.

And, lastly, watch Rangers farmhand Eric Jenkins make the catch of the year for the DEWDs yesterday.

Have a pleasant and reflective Memorial Day!
