MLB: Seattle Mariners at Texas Rangers Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Levi Weaver has a story about about the LSB DoppleRanger section at the ballpark and how it’s benefiting two charities, both the Texas Rangers Foundation and Do It For Durrett.

With the trade deadline looming and the Rangers suddenly sort of back in the hunt it’s time to endlessly speculate about what the Rangers’ buy/sell status is going to be.

Jayson Stark discusses the possibility of the playoffs taking place in neutral parks and which parks that might be, given that there will be as many as 24 postseason games played in 3 days in the first round.

An appeal filed by the Rangers to overrule the error on Nick Solak’s homer-via-Jo Adell’s glove was denied on Tuesday.

Ranger reliever Luke Farrell, who was optioned to the alternate site last week, has been placed on the COVID-19 IL due to potential exposure.

Ian Gibaut didn’t make the team in 2020’s first spring training, but is making the most of the opportunity he’s been given the second time around.

The writing may be on the wall for Rougned Odor, as the Rangers have added infielder Derek Dietrich to the roster a day after signing him to a minor league deal.

Mike Minor was disappointed to be pulled after four innings in Tuesday’s win.

Elvis Andrus, Robinson Chirinos, and Rougned Odor are not covering themselves in glory at the plate.

And, as mentioned, the roster move with Derek Dietrich could indicate that Odor has a limited amount of time to turn things around.

Nick Solak and Mike Minor helped put the Rangers within spitting distance of .500 yesterday.

Solak’s offense and Mike Minor’s strong (but short) outing bode well for things to come.
