MLB: San Diego Padres at Texas Rangers Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Stefan Stevenson writes that Keone Kela has been perfect as the closer for the Rangers, a role he and Texas has been building toward for years now.

MLB dot com’s Tyler Maher adds to Jon Morosi’s report that Cole Hamels might be dealt before the All-Star break with new details on which team is being most aggressive (and I bet you can guess which team it is).

Mark Feinsand lists Shin-Soo Choo among his ten players who are raising their stock ahead of the trade deadline.

With the 2018 J-2 signing period just days away, T.R. Sullivan looks at the top International prospect from each AL West team.

Jamey Newberg re-ranks and reevaluates the top pitching prospects on the Texas farm as of midseason.

Joey Hayden writes about Ron Washington’s appearance on Tim Brown’s podcast where Washington admitted the change he would have made in Game 6 (and no it doesn’t involve Endy Chavez).

And, lastly, Yahoo! Sports noted (based on a tweet by our pal Tepid) that Rangers legend Rafael Palmeiro is holding his own with the bat in the Indy leagues despite being 53 years old.

Have a nice day!
