MLB: Houston Astros at Texas Rangers Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

T.R. Sullivan recaps the Rangers’ 12-4 loss to the Astros in Sunday’s finale where Ariel Jurado struggled in his first turn in the second half.

Joseph Hoyt writes for the DMN that the Rangers missed an opportunity to take a series from the Astros after winning the first two over the weekend.

Jeff Wilson writes that Rangers players weren’t satisfied with the split even though a starting pitching imbalance eventually showed between the two Texas teams.

Sullivan has notes on the club while writing about Adrian Sampson’s versatility after coming out of the bullpen this weekend.

Hoyt writes that manager Chris Woodward was impressed that Sampson was able to succeed in yet another role asked of him.

In his reactions to the weekend, Wilson writes that the Rangers need to get help on the mound if they want to make a push for the playoffs.

Levi Weaver and Josh Tolentino of the Rays’ beat looked into why Texas and Tampa Bay pulled off a prospect for prospect trade over the weekend.

Jamey Newberg profiles the rise of Ricky Vanasco from 15th rounder in 2017 to emerging pitching prospect in Spokane.

And, lastly, the Dallas Morning News is holding a vote to select the All Ballpark in Arlington era team of Rangers from 1994-2019.

Have a nice day!
