MLB: Cleveland Indians at Texas Rangers Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

T.R. Sullivan recaps the Rangers’ 7-2 win over the Cleveland Indians from last night.

Jeff Wilson writes about the upcoming Do It For Durrett event while reacting to the win over Cleveland.

Chuck Carlton writes that the Rangers keep finding people to step up when players go down such as Danny Santana last night following the blow of losing Hunter Pence to the IL.

Sullivan updates on Pence’s injury with Willie Calhoun arriving just in the nick of time from his own rehab stint.

Wilson writes about the outfielder injury carousel that has spared the Rangers from having to make some difficult decisions.

Are the Rangers for real? Are the Rangers ready? Levi Weaver ponders some thoughts we didn’t think we’d be thinking in mid-June of this year in the Weaver Wire.

Sullivan notes that Pence is still second in the AL at DH in the All-Star voting while Joey Gallo is eighth (a dang crime!) in the OF voting. So, vote for ‘em maybe.

Evan Grant’s Stock Watch likes the recent earning potential of Jesse Chavez and Shin-Soo Choo but thinks Ronald Guzman and Logan Forsythe are having a poor Q2.

Among many other things, Jared Sandler’s SANDbox for the week covers the idea of retiring Michael Young’s No. 10.

Jamey Newberg begins the process of re-ranking his top 72 Rangers prospect list from over the winter with part one of three.

And, lastly, Rangers’ 2019 first round pick Josh Jung is with his Texas Tech team at the College World Series and he beat Arkansas with a late home run in a tied game. Mitch Sherman wrote about the mental side of his game for The Athletic.

Have a nice day!
