Tuesday Morning Texas Rangers Update

Forever sick of Trevor Cahill

Good morning.

Jeff Wilson reacts to yet another bullpen blow up for the Rangers on this homestand but writes that the bullpen shouldn’t shoulder all of the blame.

Why wouldn’t you blame the ‘pen? Well, as Evan Grant writes, early season usage rates had already put the relief corp on a collision course with disaster.

T.R. Sullivan recaps the 9-4 loss which was once a pretty normal 3-3 game heading into the ninth inning before the latest Rangers...

Rangers' 'pen falters late in loss to Athletics

Marcus Semien hit a first-pitch leadoff home run in the ninth inning off Rangers reliever Kevin Jepsen to spark a six-run rally that sent the Rangers to a 9-3 loss.

Thoughts on a 9-4 Rangers loss

A’s 9, Rangers 4

A’s 9, Rangers 4

This game was vexing on a number of levels. Matt Moore, pitching for, maybe, the right to stay in the rotation a little longer, was okay today. He gave up a pair of runs in the third, another in the fourth, didn’t look particularly sharp, couldn’t put goes away with two strikes, but, you know, it could have been worse. 3 runs allowed in 5 IP, pulled with a runner on and no one out in the sixth. Jose Leclerc, Matt Bush and Alex Claudio, three guys...

Chirinos homers, but Rangers fall late to A's

8-16 - Rangers can’t find the win column, lose opener to A’s 9-4

Can you believe this game was tied 3-3 going to the ninth inning?

*falls to knees* *shakes fist angrily at sky* “TREVOR CAHILLLLLLLLLlllllllllllllll!” *collapses from exhaustion* *weeps openly forever*

Player of the Game: Seeing Jonathan Lucroy reminded me of how unfun it was watching him play last season which made it extra fun to watch Robinson Chirinos hit a game-tying, two-run dong against Lucroy’s new team.

Alas, the Rangers didn’t score again until the game was out of reach...

Fister's return gives Rangers good problem

The Rangers are in the process of trying to figure out what to do with six healthy starting pitchers.

Doug Fister starts Wednesday, Bartolo Colon Saturday

The Rangers have announced Doug Fister will be activated from the disabled list on Wednesday and start against the Oakland A’s

Texas Rangers rotation and probable pitchers: The Texas Rangers have announced that pitcher Doug Fister, who has been on the disabled list with a right hip strain, will be activated from the d.l. on Wednesday, April 25, when he will start against the Oakland A’s. In addition, per Evan Grant on Twitter, Bartolo Colon will start on Saturday, April 28, on the road...

Beltre — 3B

Gallo — LF

Profar — SS

Chirinos — C

Guzman -- 1B

Nelson, All-Star for Rangers in '73, dies

Davey Nelson, a speedy infielder who made the 1973 American League All-Star team with the Rangers and had worked as a coach and broadcaster with the Brewers since 2001, died Sunday after a battle with cancer. He was 73.

Rangers Week in Review & Series Preview

Looking back at the week that passed, and previewing the series against Oakland starting today

Rangers took just one game from the Tampa Bay Rays and one game from the Seattle Mariners. Although, they had plenty of opportunities to take more.

While, the outcomes weren’t the most exciting, they’re were plenty of moments that at least made the games more enjoyable if only for a little bit.

Like when our old pal Carlos Gomez tried to throw Beltre out at first.

It’s good to know that...

Dave Nelson, former Texas Rangers All Star, has died

Dave Nelson, second baseman for the Texas Rangers in their first years in Arlington, has passed away at the age of 73

Dave Nelson, former Texas Rangers second baseman and a longtime baseball coach in his post-playing career as well as an announcer for the Milwaukee Brewers in recent years, has passed away at the age of 73.

Nelson is one of those players who stuck in my head as a kid. He played before I was old enough to really remember and register that he was around, but one of the...

Monday Morning Texas Rangers Update

Looking forward to more wins now that Delino is back

Good morning.

Jeff Wilson reacts to Delino DeShields returning leading directly to a 7-4 win over the Mariners, among other Rangers items from Sunday.

T.R. Sullivan writes that Martin Perez needed a good outing after a horrific start to his season and he came through with a quality start.

Levi Weaver’s game story covers the win and how Bartolo Colon — and a mechanical adjustment — helped Perez get back on the bull.

Wilson writes that...

Thoughts on a 7-4 Rangers win

Rangers 7, M’s 4

Rangers 7, Mariners 4

That was a win the Rangers really needed. It was also a solid outing that Martin Perez really needed. Coming off back-to-back 8-runs-allowed games, and with Doug Fister due off the d.l. as soon as Wednesday, Perez was in a precarious situation. Even David Murphy and Mike Bascik, on the pre-game show, were talking about this being a “what have you done for me lately” league, and how Perez could be banished to the bullpen if he struggled again...

Perez's strong start backed by pair of HRs

After a delivery adjustment between starts, Rangers starter Martin Perez was much sharper than in his two previous outings. Following his six strong innings against the Mariners on Sunday afternoon at Globe Life Park, the Texas bullpen made a lead stand up as the Rangers held on for a 7-4 victory.

8-15 - Delino DeShields is the Most Valuable Player in baseball: Rangers win 7-4

The Rangers win in Delino’s return

Sure, Delino DeShields went hitless in his return to the lineup after breaking a bone in the second night of the season, but the proof is in the pudding.

Without Delino DeShields, the Rangers are maybe the worst team that has ever played baseball. With Delino DeShields, the Rangers are playing .667 ball and have the 2001 Mariners taking their champagne out of the ice bucket.

Today, against the 2018 Mariners, the Rangers won just their eighth game of the...

Rangers activate DeShields, place Tocci on DL

Less than a month after requiring surgery to repair a fractured hamate bone in his left hand, Delino DeShields is back. The Rangers activated the outfielder ahead of Sunday's game against the Mariners. In a corresponding move, center fielder Carlos Tocci was placed on the 10-day disabled list with a left hip bruise.

Delino DeShields activated, leading off today

The Rangers have activated outfielder Delino DeShields from the disabled list and have him leading off today, with Carlos Tocci going on the d.l.

The Texas Rangers have activated Delino DeShields from the 10 day disabled list today, as he beats the 4-6 week estimate that was initially given for his timetable for returning from a broken hamate bone in his hand, which required surgery. DeShields was out on a rehab assignment for Frisco from Thursday through Saturday, and be all accounts looks...

Gallo looking to rake in finale against M's

Joey Gallo is expected back in the lineup when the Rangers and starter Martin Perez face the Mariners at 2:05 p.m. CT on Sunday at Globe Life Park. Gallo did not start on Saturday for the first time this season. Gallo hit two home runs off Mariners starter Erasmo Ramirez the last time they faced each other on Aug. 1, 2017.

Rangers' bullpen labors in pivotal 7th vs. M's

The Rangers aren't getting the same magic out of left-handed reliever Alex Claudio as they did last year or the same results out of their bullpen as they did on the just-completed road trip. Claudio gave up four runs in the seventh inning without getting an out in a 9-7 loss to the Mariners on Saturday night at Globe Life Park.
