MLB: Detroit Tigers at Texas Rangers Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

T.R. Sullivan recaps the Rangers’ 7-6 win over the Tigers where Detroit made Texas look competent defensively.

Jeff Wilson’s game story covers a win where the young core bats were the stars for Texas while Matt Moore, uh...wasn’t.

Delino DeShields had an excellent game using his elite speed tool as exemplified by him scoring from first on a ground ball to second base.

Levi Weaver wrote yesterday about how DeShields has transformed himself from a Rule 5 second baseman to a center fielder. Later that night, DeShields posted a 5-star catch:

Sullivan notes that Tim Lincecum pitched his first rehab inning for Round Rock last night and overcame nerves to strike out the final two hitters he faced.

Wilson reacts to the latest from the Rangers while explaining why Lincecum’s nerves were a good sign.

Weaver talked with Willie Calhoun about getting over the frustration of being sent down to Round Rock and using it as an opportunity to get better.

And, lastly, we learned that 20-year-old right-hander Emmanuel Clase is the player to be named in the Brett Nicholas trade with San Diego.

Have a nice day!
