Good morning.

Jeff Wilson writes that it was Mike Minor and Jose Trevino who teamed up to take down the Yankees for a Labor Day win on a dreary day in New York.

MLB dot com’s Bill Ladson writes that the Yankees found Minor to be “nasty” as he and the Rangers shut out the Yankees for the first time in 220 games for New York.

Evan Grant writes that a tough September schedule gives the Rangers the chance to play spoiler to October hopefuls.

Wilson notes that Joey Gallo will be back taking BP this week following hand surgery in July but Gallo doesn’t yet know when or if he’ll be back in the lineup before the season is over.

Grant writes that Gallo is sheepish about committing to playing again this season because his grip strength isn’t where he’d like it to be yet.

Ladson offers up notes on Gallo’s latest step, the Rangers’ plans in September, and an update on Hunter Pence.

Levi Weaver gets the scoop on how turbulent summer weather nearly derailed the Michael Young number retirement ceremony and how the Rangers pulled it off.

Rookies Brock Burke, Jonathan Hernandez, and Nick Solak are trending up whereas Grant is bearish on veteran hitters in his latest Rangers Stock Report.

And, finally, Mike Mazzeo of Yahoo Sports writes that Mike Minor was made aware of the fact that he leads baseball in pitching bWAR but he isn’t buying it. Afterwards, Minor went out and shut the Yankees out for 7 13 innings so yeah Mike Minor is doing alright.

Have a nice day!
