Good morning.

Kennedi Landry has a recap of the Texas Rangers getting pummeled 15-1 by the Houston Astros last evening if you’re feeling masochistic.

Evan Grant writes that two of the young arms that Rangers are excited about — Spencer Howard and A.J. Alexy — gave up six runs apiece to Houston last night.

Among various notes, Jeff Wilson writes that Texas looking to keep Howard on his routine as a starter might have hindered Alexy out of the ‘pen.

Grant takes a look at the three big name impending free agent shortstops that will use Texas as a stalking horse before signing elsewhere this winter.

Wilson writes that Taylor Hearn is making a late case to be named the Rangers Pitcher of the Year.

Grants’ notes cover manager Chris Woodward’s growing admiration for Hearn and some good and bad news for Nick Snyder, among other items.

And, Jared Sandler had a chat with former Rangers catcher turned Rangers catching instructor Bobby Wilson about the evolving role of catchers.

Have a nice day!
