RANGERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Rangers go for series win behind Griffin

Despite his high-90s fastball and ability to pick up strikeouts in bunches, Michael Pineda's spot in the Yankees' rotation wasn't always a given. Not after a rough start to the season, Yanks general manager Brian Cashman said Monday.

Three takeaways: Rangers bullpen collapse results in Dyson's first blown save since becoming closer

Takeaways and observations from the New York Yankees' 9-7 walkoff win over the Rangers Wednesday night:--Bullpen issues: The Rangers have tried to nurse a hard-worked bullpen through some rest lately, but for the second time in a week it blew up on them. Matt Bush, trying to pitch a second inning, allowed two runners, then Sam Dyson, who had four days off last week, allowed two homers...

Mitch Moreland’s streakiness makes him tough to trust

There is a cliche often used with pitchers; Every hurler has the ability to shut down the other team on any given day, and it’s the guys that do it the most consistently that are the best in the business. The same can be said for hitters. Everybody at the plate fails more than they succeed, but the best hitters battle through that and can avoid major slumps. Texas Rangers first...

NEW YORK (AP) Texas Rangers right-hander Yu Darvish has thrown about 45 pitches in a three-inning simulated game and could return to the rotation shortly after the All-Star break.

Is Adrian Beltre the reason for the Texas Rangers success?

If your favorite team was the Texas Rangers, then chances are the player you thought of was Adrian Beltre. Beltre’s teammates and coaches are constantly singing his praises for the player he is on and off the...

Cole Hamels Got Better in the Big Leagues

When Cole Hamels arrived in the major leagues, he had a 90 mph fastball, decent command, and what would prove to be baseball’s best changeup. That’s a few bucks short of an ace, and so, in two of his first four seasons, he produced an ERA over four and maybe was looking for something. Now, instead of having one elite pitch, the Rangers’ ace is the only starting pitcher in...

Reporter defends Elvis Andrus, Rougned Odor over Powerade bath

Rougned Odor drenches reporter with Powerade

Hoisting a Gatorade jug and pouring it all over the baseball player who provided a game-winning hit late in a game is nothing new. Bringing out a second jug and drenching a reporter is, however. The Rangers jumped out to a 3-0 lead and defeated the Red Sox with ease on Sunday, 6-2. After the game, when a sideline reporter was attempting to get an interview with Rougned Odor, he...

Texas Rangers: Joey Gallo, Lewis Brinson updates

The Texas Rangers do not have many problems with their offense (although Prince Fielder is struggling to stay above the Mendoza Line), but there are some huge prospects waiting in the minors. The top two prospects, Lewis Brinson and Joey Gallo, each have a solid opportunity to break into the majors in the near future. With proven players planted on the major league roster, however...

Report: Taxpayers in Arlington getting shafted on new Rangers stadium

It’s no secret that publicly funded sports stadiums are bad deals for taxpayers, but the new AT&T Stadium being built for the Texas Rangers is the worst. An investigative report by Brett Shipp and Mark Smith of WFAA-TV sheds some extremely disturbing light on the raw deal Arlington taxpayers are getting. Initially billed as a 50-50 deal for the taxpayers, Shipp and Smith have...

New Rangers ballpark could be misleading taxpayers

On April 11, 1994, The Ballpark in Arlington, now known as Globe Life Park, hosted its first Texas Rangers’ game ever. That was barely over 22 years ago. On May 20, 2016, just over 22 years after the stadium’s first game, the Rangers and City of Arlington announced a new stadium would be built and ready prior to the 2021 season. That means Globe Life Park would host Rangers’...

Rangers' Deep Bench Is A Double-Edged Sword

If asked, any MLB manager would tell you that having a deep bench is a good problem to have. It's definitely preferable to not having enough depth, and it's probably closer to the truth to say that a team can never have too much depth than to ever say that it's a problem. The Texas Rangers' Jeff Banister certainly isn't complaining. The American League's best team is sitting comfortably...

Texas Rangers heat up with 9th consecutive series win

Coming into this season the Texas Rangers lineup was full of question marks. There were rumors of an early season trade for Jonathon Lucroy. There was the ongoing saga of Josh Hamilton. There was the looming return of Yu Darvish and if the team could stay afloat until he came back, the addition of Ian Desmond, and the question of where he’d fit in? But all the questions gradually...
