Toronto Blue Jays
Well, that game sucked. Honestly, that’s about all I can say about it. But I’ll try to find a few more words.
Poor Justin Grimm. He wasn’t outstanding tonight, but he was far from the worst part to watch. He had no run support whatsoever, but he stayed on the mound into the 8th inning, taking one for the team, I guess. He gave up seven runs on 10 hits, including two home runs. So, yeah, it wasn’t a fun night for him, but at least the bullpen is rested, I guess. Only Kyle McClellan was called on, and he couldn’t really stop Toronto either. He gave up one more run.
At that point, it didn’t really matter anyway. The Rangers only had five hits all night. Two of them belonged to Adrian Beltre. Shout out to Jurickson Profar, Lance Berkman, and Leury Garcia for getting the other three. Everyone else? Nada. The frustration is clear. And it was on display when Elvis Andrus was ejected in the 6th for arguing about a strike call. He was correct — the ball was low and inside —
BEST OF MAXIM
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Texas Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus has been ejected in the sixth inning after being called out on strikes by umpire Eric Cooper.
After taking strike three from Toronto starter Mark Buehrle on Friday night, Andrus yelled at Cooper from the dugout. After Andrus was ejected, a bat was thrown onto the field from the dugout.
Jurickson Profar moved from second...
ARLINGTON, Texas -- Joakim Soria will make his Texas Rangers debut in Arlington Friday.
Of course Soria will only be facing hitters in a batting practice session, but it's a big step towards making his real debut for the Rangers.
Soria, who has been rehabbing from Tommy John surgery and a pectoral strain in Arizona, is happy to have the change of scenery.
ARLINGTON, Texas Nolan Ryan had plans to be the kind of father who was around a lot on Father's Day.
Ryan thought he'd retire from baseball in his early 30s and then take up coaching sons Reid and Reese through their Little League days.
Of course that didn't happen as Ryan ended his Hall of Fame career with 324 victories and 5,714 strikeouts at the age of 46.
Texas Rangers infielder Jeff Baker wasn't in the lineup Friday night because of a sprained right thumb. This in and of itself isn't newsworthy.However, the manner in which Baker injured himself certainly is.Baker was unable to grip a bat Friday after receiving an "over-the-top high-five" from one of his teammates during pregame handshakes Thursday. This is according...
Texas Rangers second baseman Ian Kinsler has been activated from the Disabled List and bat leadoff for the Rangers in Toronto. Kinsler, no stranger to injury has missed nearly a month with an intercostal strain and will return to face RA Dickey and the Blue Jays.The 30-year-old second baseman has stayed healthy the past two seasons, playing in 155 and 157 games after playing in...
The Texas Rangers starting pitcher Matt Harrison is now projected to rejoin the Rangers sometime in September following two surgeries on his back to repair a herniated disk.The Rangers will start Harrison on a throwing program this Monday, wherein he is expected to throw on flat ground for about four to six weeks.At that point, he will be able to begin throwing off of a mound, which...
June 14 looks promising for injured Texas Rangers nearing returns. With Ian Kinsler already on a rehab assignment, focus can shift toward other key players soon to return. Within the next few weeks, the Rangers expect to have first baseman Mitch Moreland and pitchers Alexi Ogando, Colby Lewis, and Joakim Soria back on their active rosters. Here are their latest updates as of...
Texas Rangers shortstop Jurickson Profar is one of the most promising young players in baseball. He may be fearless when it comes to diving for a ground ball or standing in against a 100-mph fastball, but that doesn’t mean the 20-year-old has no fears at all. During an interview with BaDD Radio on KTCK-AM earlier [...]
Add this one to the list of strange injuries. The Texas Rangers were without the services of Jeff Baker last night. The reason? Baker suffered a sprained thumb after high-fiving a teammate. The injury was bad enough to keep him out of last night's lineup and list him as day-to-day.
According to Anthony Andro of Fox Sports Southwest, Baker's thumb was bent back all...
Joakim Soria is finally set to throw off the Rangers Ballpark mound to major league hitters.
While Soria will only be throwing live batting practice to his Texas teammates, Friday is a significant step for the reliever still a few weeks from his Rangers debut.
''It's been a long spring training for me,'' Soria said Thursday. ''Finally, I'm here....
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Adam Lind and Colby Rasmus both hit two-run homers and the Toronto Blue Jays won their fourth game in a row, beating the sliding Texas Rangers 6-1 on Saturday.
Even with the unexpected early return of second baseman Ian Kinsler from his rehabilitation assignment, the Rangers' season-long losing streak reached five games. All of those losses are at home...
ARLINGTON, Texas Gus Walker, 14, knew he would get a behind-the-scenes tour of a Rangers broadcast with the Fox Sports Southwest crew on Thursday.
What he didn't know was that he would also throw out the first pitch.
"I didn't know that until the car ride here," said a wide-eyed Walker, whose family waited to inform him of the honor.
"We figured he'...
If this was Oct. 4, we would play the Rangers in a one-game season, in Texas. We would face Yu Darvish. We'd probably throw CC.
