MLB: Detroit Tigers at Texas Rangers Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

There’s something to like about all the pitchers in the Frisco rotation right now and Levi Weaver is thinking a homegrown ace may be right around the corner.

John Hicks has hit homers in his first four games as a Ranger, a first, though he jokes that he’s doing well against teams he used to play for but that he’s running out of former teams to play against.

Hicks credits some mechanical changes that he has been working on in Round Rock with his recent success at the plate.

Evan Grant observes that there are no easy answers about what to do with Joey Gallo, even though Gallo wants nothing more than to stay in Texas.

Speaking of Gallo, he’s willing to participate in the home run derby but no one has asked him to do so yet.

The slumping Isiah Kiner-Falefa continues to drop down the batting order.

Chris Woodward says that the defensive problems among Rangers’ pitchers are a result of them not understanding their defensive responsibilities.
