Putting a forgettable weekend behind us

MLB: Texas Rangers at Chicago White Sox Mike Dinovo-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Jeff Wilson writes that it was dreary and miserable in Chicago on Sunday and that wasn’t just the weather as the Texas Rangers were swept over the weekend

Evan Grant notes that starter Kohei Arihara had his worst stateside outing to the point that the Rangers grew concerned that he was tipping his pitches.

Kennedi Landry writes that even though the series against the Chicago White Sox was a bust, Isiah Kiner-Falefa got his bat back on track.

Joey Gallo is reaching base at an impressive clip, and limiting his strikeouts to a degree this season but, as Grant notes, his power has shockingly vanished.

Jonathan Mayo of MLB Pipeline has put together his latest mock MLB Draft with the Rangers landing local prep shortstop Jordan Lawlar at No. 2 overall in the exercise.

And, the next time you read about the Rangers being among a handful of teams who aren’t paying for housing for their alt site minor leaguers, remember that owner Bob Simpson has a coin collection dubbed “numismatic royalty” with a prototype silver dollar landing him $840,000 over the weekend.

Have a nice day!
