Good morning.

Jeff Wilson reacts to the Rangers’ 1-0 win over the Indians where Mike Minor made a mechanical adjustment and pitched like a top of the rotation starter again.

MLB dot com’s Henry Palattella writes that it was — unsurprisingly — Elvis Andrus, in addition to Minor, who took the Indians down on Monday night.

Evan Grant writes that veterans like Hunter Pence and Shin-Soo Choo are taking their likely reduced roles in the final two months as an opportunity to help the young players on the team.

Palattella notes that several Rangers pitchers such as Shawn Kelley and Edinson Volquez are working their way back from injuries with the hopes of pitching again with Texas this season.

In some ugly news, Grant reports that the Rangers are investigating an incident where a fan was harassing Hispanic family during a game over the weekend.

Jared Sandler’s SANDbox for the week takes a look back at the mayhem around the deadline and how the Rangers came out on the other side.

Grant’s Rangers Stock Report recommends buying Willie Calhoun and Rougned Odor but immediately selling Adrian Sampson.

Jamey Newberg takes a position-by-position look at who the Rangers will be evaluating during the final two months of the season.

And, finally, Grant notes that Odor did a nice thing by helping out a Venezuelan team from his hometown of Maracaibo to compete in Little League World Series.

Have a nice day!
