Good morning, folks...

The Texas Rangers beat the Cleveland Indians yesterday by a score of 4-2.

Evan Grant’s game story talks about Mike Minor’s latest effort being part of him turning into an elite starting pitcher.

The Rangers Reaction in the S-T also highlighted Minor pitching like a top of the rotation guy.

The Texas Rangers made a series of roster moves before the game against Cleveland yesterday, bringing up lefthanded relief pitchers Kyle Bird and Locke St. John, optioning Joe Palumbo, and designating Drew Smyly for assignment.

Chris Woodward said that it was best for Smyly and for the team for the two parties to part ways.

Jamey Newberg has part two of his series re-ranking the Rangers’ prospects.

The latest Evan Help Us column talks about retiring Elvis Andrus and Juan Gonzalez’s number, Hunter Pence extension talk, and who would play first base if Ronald Guzman gets sent down.
