MLB: Texas Rangers at Houston Astros Thomas Shea-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

The Texas Rangers had the day off yesterday which, as Kennedi Landry writes, gave manager Chris Woodward time to reflect on the series against his old team at Dodger Stadium.

Levi Weaver writes about the difficult process of knowing when to continue embracing an adjustment or when to abandon it for something else.

MLB dot com’s Thomas Harrigan takes a look at the early MLB All-Star Game voting and there’s only one Ranger among the leaders.

That Ranger among the vote leaders is not Isiah Kiner-Falefa and Jeff Wilson notes that the Rangers’ shortstop isn’t happy about the slight of not even being among the top ten at his position in the American League.

Evan Grant writes that if history has shown us anything about how IKF will respond to feeling underappreciated, it should be to the Rangers’ benefit.

ESPN’s Bradford Doolittle examines what each team should considering accomplishing at next month’s trade deadline and I’m pretty sure you can guess what he thinks the Rangers should do.

Local prep shortstop Jordan Lawlar is the pick for the Rangers in FanGraph’s latest mock draft as compiled by Eric Longenhagen and Kevin Goldstein.

And, Grant’s MLB Draft watch for this week focuses on Kumar Rocker and Jack Leiter pitching Vanderbilt to the College World Series while the Rangers were visiting with Marcelo Mayer in Los Angeles.

Have a nice day!
