Good morning.

TR Sullivan writes that the Rangers couldn’t pull off the final hit to complete a comeback and fell to the Mariners in 12 innings last night.

Jeff Wilson writes that Martin Perez, after another decent outing last night, is showing enough to warrant inclusion in the wide open 2019 rotation.

No longer a candidate for the 2019 rotation, Jesse Rogers writes that Cole Hamels is, as we all suspected, settling in nicely with the Chicago Cubs.

Wilson writes about Shin-Soo Choo’s mentorship of Rougned Odor as Choo’s elite approach at the plate is beginning to rub off on Odor.

Jamey Newberg writes about newly acquired top prospect Taylor Hearn coming home and his journey that led him to the Rangers.

Samuel Hale writes about Cole Ragans (and, ostensibly Hearn) as WFAA’s No. 5 top Rangers prospect.

In case you’re still curious about something that happened with that awful, deeply unlikable 2013 Texas Rangers team, Levi Weaver solved the Jeff Baker thumb mystery.

General Manager Jon Daniels was on the Ben & Skin radio show to talk about Adrian Beltre at the deadline and the DMN has a transcript.

And, lastly, for the second time since the All-Star break, Rougned Odor is the American League Player of the Week. Strangely enough, also for the second time, the National League winner is Matt Carpenter who was also the NL winner when Rougie won his other one in July.

Have a nice day.
