MLB: Oakland Athletics at Texas Rangers Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Willie Calhoun is on track to return from the injured list on Monday and Joey Gallo is hitting off a tee and is scheduled to return the following week.

The Rangers have signed 13 of their 2019 draft picks, with $300,000 in savings from players signing under slot so far.

Cory Mageors at 105.3 has a roundup of young, controllable pitching on teams that are out of the playoff hunt.

Drew Smyly will be going from bringing his gas can every fifth day to bringing gas cans whenever they may be needed.

Lance Lynn turned in a workmanlike performance yesterday that wasn’t quite good enough, but it’s those types of appearances that are winning games.

Jesse Chavez shaved off his mustache after walking Mookie Betts in the first Ranger walk off loss since 2002.

Evan Grant’s mailbag column looks at what happens to the roster when Joey Gallo and Willie Calhoun return and how umpires like Angel Hernandez keep their jobs.

With Drew Smyly moving to the bullpen, none of the TJ reclamation signings remain in the rotation.

Today’s game is an opportunity for the Rangers to win the series in Boston and send a message that they’re a real contender.
