MLB: Game Two-Texas Rangers at Cleveland Indians Ken Blaze-USA TODAY Sports

Shawn Kelley is back, but Jose Leclerc will remain the closer for the time being.

The Rangers dropped both ends of the double header yesterday, but don’t blame Ariel Jurado and Lance Lynn.

Sandy Alomar, Jr. has seen a lot of pitchers in his career and said, of Emmanuel Clase, “I’ve never seen 100 mph cutter before in my life.”

The thing about .500 teams is that every little win streak comes with kick in the balls.

Evan Grant’s mailbag column answers which pitching prospects we might see this year, whether Hunter Pence will be back next year, and what’s the deal with Adrian Sampson.

Ariel Jurado continues to make a strong case for his 2020 rotation candidacy.

Willie Calhoun is also sending a message about where he wants to spend 2020.
