Good morning.

Evan Grant writes about the Rangers failing to score for a third time in four games as they were dominated by Tyler Glasnow last evening.

At the team site, Daniel Guerrero recaps a 1-0 Texas Rangers loss to the Tampa Bay Rays that saw some impressive pitching while the bats remained silent.

Jeff Wilson notes that the Rangers didn’t just lose their game on Monday, they also lost Ronald Guzman to a leg injury early in the contest.

Grant writes that Guzman was playing on the unkind turf at Tropicana Field, making his first start in left field, and his evening didn’t even last a full inning.

Levi Weaver writes that the quick descent upon the departure of a sweeping San Diego Padres feels like deja vu but there are still 152 more of these bad boys to readjust the narrative.

Wilson writes that one of the major requirements for this rebuilding season for Texas was staying healthy and that has not panned out thus far.

Indeed, Grant notes that the battered bullpen took another blow on Monday with the announcement that Jonathan Hernandez needed Tommy John surgery and Matt Bush is out for at least 12 weeks.

And, sure, we might have witnessed a Joe Musgrove no-no and Tyler Glasnow fanning 14 Rangers but no one will ever be as perfect as North Texas pitcher Hope Trautwein.

Have a nice day!
