MLB: Los Angeles Angels at Texas Rangers Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, LSB.

The Rangers lost to the Angels yesterday by a score of 5-0, the eleventh time the Rangers have been shut out this season.

The DMN’s game story focuses on the Rangers debut of starter Spencer Howard, which didn’t, as they say, “go well.”

In case you missed it, the Rangers called up middle infielder Yonny Hernandez yesterday. The FWST has some introductory notes on ‘The Mosquito.’

Joseph Hoyt shares some Chris Woodward quotes on why it wasn’t Nick Solak getting the bump from Triple-A.

Jeff Wilson says the Hernandez-over-Solak decision shows that the future of second base on this team is unclear.

Up on The Athletic, Levi Weaver has parts one and two of a series predicting the Texas Rangers roster in 2023.

Brice Paterik sums up the latest Top 50 list with a few Rangers cropping up.

And a Rangers’ pitching prospect had a great night in his AA debut.

That’s all for this morning. The Rangers head to Oakland to start up a three-game series tonight, probably at like 2:30 in the morning or something. Have a nice Friday!
