Tuesday Morning Texas Rangers Update

Remember the immortal keystone combination of Doug Strange and Jon Shave?

Doug Strange

Good morning.

Evan Grant writes that it was a walkoff grand slam loss in 11 innings in the makeup finale in Boston that officially earned the Texas Rangers another losing season yesterday.

Alyson Footer writes that the Rangers did their recent thing of scoring just enough late to put up a fight, only to eventually lose in a traumatizing way.

Meanwhile, Grant notes that the already stretched thin Rangers are dealing with a COVID-19 surge among their ranks.

Jeff Wilson writes that Texas figured an outbreak would hit them eventually and now it has as four players hit the COVID IL with Jonah Heim likely to follow.

Grant writes that GM Chris Young expects the Rangers to be active in free agency this winter so I guess we’ll see what that means over the next six months.

And, DJ Peters’ catch-and-throw double play from Saturday night earned MLB Play of the Week honors.

Have a nice day!
