MLB: Los Angeles Angels at Texas Rangers Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Kennedi Landry writes about Hyeon-Jong Yang’s debut being a bright spot for the Texas Rangers in an otherwise disastrous 9-4 loss to the Angels on Monday.

Sam Blum writes that the Rangers were the victims of ‘The Shohei Ohtani Experience’ against the third place Angels.

MLB dot com’s David Adler notes that Rangers’ outfielder Adolis Garcia is the newly minted American League Player of the Week.

Jeff Wilson writes that the Rangers sent down Leody Taveras because of his early struggles and they now have the American League Player of the Week playing centerfield.

Jared Sandler has a video where he talks about the Taveras demotion, Joey Gallo’s unusual start, and Yang’s call-up.

Levi Weaver writes that the Rangers can learn a lot about rebuilding from what they saw in Chicago over the weekend.

ESPN’s Bradford Doolittle takes a look at the positions that have had the longest successful player drought for each MLB club and, for the Rangers, Nate Lowe has a chance to end the first base dry spell.

Evan Grant offers his weekly MLB Draft update with Kumar Rocker back on the rise this time after his velocity returned against stiff SEC competition.

And, Blum writes that the Rangers haven’t been good enough about adhering to their mask policies to warrant their 100% capacity status.

Have a good day!
