T.R. Sullivan writes about the 9-5 victory for the Rangers with Shin-Soo Choo and Joey Gallo playing the role of hero at the plate as Texas avoided the sweep.
Jeff Wilson writes that Chris Woodward, though prone to optimistic hyperbole, sees Gallo as the most talented player on the field whenever he steps on one and you won’t see me arguing.
Evan Grant writes that if indeed Gallo is a superhuman talent in the mold of the Mike Trouts and Mookie Betts of the world, it’s time for Woodward to move him up in the lineup.
Davison notes that Danny Santana was the latest Ranger to hit the injured list which paved the way for Anderson Tejeda to join the team despite never having an at-bat above A-Ball.
Grant writes that the Jonathan Hernandez was the star on the mound for the Rangers on Sunday as his role has evolved into becoming the bullpen fireman.
And, finally, Sullivan unloads his whole notebook with items on Santana, Tejeda, and a special weekend for Scott Heineman.
