Jonah Heim had the weekend of his baseball life against the Seattle Mariners which ended literally with, as Stefan Stevenson notes, a historical series-clinching home run for a Texas Rangers series win.
Kennedi Landry recaps the 4-3 win for Texas which saw Heim go déjà vu for a walk-off dong on the pretending Mariners.
Following a four-homer, six RBI weekend against Seattle, Joseph Hoyt of the DMN writes that the Rangers do indeed plan to give Heim more playing time behind the plate.
Landry has notes on Jharel Cotton fighting his way back to the Majors and the Rangers getting some draftees inked ahead of the deadline yesterday.
Indeed, Stevenson writes that the Rangers were able to get 18 of their 20 selections signed but with the caveat that 2nd-rounder Aaron Zavala comes with a unexpected medical concern.
Evan Grant has more details on the contract extension discussions for Joey Gallo behind the trade deadline.
Jeff Wilson writes about John King’s wild weekend after momentarily thinking he’d been traded to the Yankees along with Gallo.
Ezequiel Duran was the headliner in the return for Gallo and he made MLB Pipeline’s top performers list from yesterday’s minor league action.
And, with the deadline now in the rearview mirror, Landry writes about the questions that the Rangers will attempt to answer in the season’s final two months.
Have a nice day!
