MLB: Pittsburgh Pirates at Texas Rangers Shanna Lockwood-USA TODAY Sports

Second round draft pick Owen White had TJ surgery yesterday, joining Mason Englert, Cole Ragans, Alex Speas, and Kyle Cody in the “what the bleep are the Rangers doing to young pitchers” file.

Incidentally, Mason Englert and Owen White were two of the participants in the Deload program last summer, which was supposed to cut down on elbow injuries.

Shelby Miller held it together for three innings, so I guess that’s something to celebrate.

Rougned Odor may be sucking his way out of the 2 spot in the lineup.

Evan Grant has a mailbag column where he ponders such weighty topics as Mike Minor and Game of Thrones.

The team will be giving Jose Leclerc a “break” from closing.

Opposing batters have a .500 OBP against Shelby Miller when there are men on base.

Joey Gallo is swinging less and it’s paying off.
