Only six games to go

MLB: Texas Rangers at Los Angeles Angels Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Doug Padilla of MLB dot com recaps the Rangers falling 5-4 in 11 innings to the Angels last night despite a ninth inning rally to tie the game.

Elvis Andrus was responsible for the pinch hit RBI single that tied the game but before the game, Evan Grant wrote about Elvis’ woes with the bat in 2018.

Jeff Wilson takes a look at the statistical milestones various Rangers can still reach in the season’s final week.

Padilla writes that the Rangers want Willie Calhoun to, yes, you guessed it, work on his defense and fundamentals.

Wilson notes that Shin-Soo Choo was the oldest player in the Rangers’ lineup on Monday night by a full 10 years (!) as Texas continues its youth movement.

The Eric Longenhagen and Kiley McDaniel tandem at Fangraphs updated their 2019 MLB Draft prospects board, which is certainly relevant for fans of a team currently with 90 losses.

And, lastly, Will Leitch names the best season by a pitcher from each team in franchise history and oh boy I’d imagine it was a real short list for the Rangers.

Have a nice day!
