Tuesday Morning Texas Rangers Update

The Rangers won last night but at what cost?

Good morning.

Jeff Wilson writes that the Rangers began their final 100 games countdown at The Ballpark with a 5-3 win over the Diamondbacks.

TR Sullivan writes that the win was Bartolo Colon’s latest conquest of a fellow former Cy Young award winner.

Drew Davison notes that Elvis Andrus is the current Ranger who has spent the most time at The Ballpark but he won’t miss it too much.

Sullivan writes that it was a pyrrhic victory for Texas last night as Adrian Beltre reaggravated his hamstring while scoring an eighth inning insurance run.

Wilson wonders if another leg injury will lead Beltre down a path to consider hanging ‘em up this winter after a season filled with trips to the DL.

Remember Doug Fister? Seems like he last pitched for Texas years ago. Wesley Dotson notes that you likely won’t see Fister pitch again this year.

And, lastly, fast risers Bubba Thompson and Tyler Phillips of Hickory made the MLB Pipeline top prospect performers list from Monday’s action.

Have a nice day!
