MLB: Texas Rangers at Oakland Athletics Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports

Matt Bush, who has not pitched since June, will not pitch again this season and Delino Deshields started a rehab assignment in Frisco yesterday.

Yohander Mendez is high on life two months after a drunken escapade in Kansas City got him demoted.

The Rangers have not been shy about identifying pitching prospects as relievers early in the minor league career.

Carlton “Buzzy” Keller, who scouted Jeff Banister for Pittsburgh and was Ron Washington’s first professional manager at the Kansas City Royals Baseball academy in the 70’s, has passed away.

Evan’s mailbag column looks at having an “opener” pitch the first inning, the odds of Elvis opting out of his contract, and the Players’ Weekend memorial patches.

The DMN has a puff piece on Joey Gallo and his time in Las Vegas.

Ariel Jurado is not instilling the Rangers with a lot of confidence in his ability to be a viable starting option.

The Rangers are still looking for the best spot to put Joey Gallo but they’re pretty sure center field isn’t it.

Even Joey Gallo says “I’m not a center fielder.”

Matt Bush says that it wasn’t the attempt to make him a starter that caused his injuries.

Levi Weaver takes an in depth look at Jeff Banister’s relationship with Buzzy Keller.
