This was supposed to be the year of David Murphy. After several seasons as serving as the Texas Rangers fourth outfielder, last season was finally Murphy’s first shot at a regular starting role. Many hoped that a second season as a starter coupled with 2013 being the final year of his contract, that Murphy would exceed last year’s success. If the thirty one year old could piece...
When the Texas Rangers initially placed catcher A.J. Pierzynski on the disabled list with an oblique injury, the veteran backstop was frustrated by the move. However, Pierzynski now admits that he "probably shouldn't have kept playing" through the pain, as he's now revealed that he's been dealing with a torn oblique, not a strain as originally thought.
Admittedly, I’ve been worried about Nelson Cruz this season. Some of that worry was for his bat, but most of it was for his glove. Today, he presented strong evidence that I need not worry about him just yet.
In the afternoon finale of the Oakland series, Cruz made a spectacular catch and hit a three-run home run. Cruz’ heroics helped Alexi Ogando secure his fourth win...
On Wednesday, Rangers pitcher Alexi Ogando made it to the sixth inning with a no-hitter going and FOX wasn’t going to risk jinxing it. When they flashed a graphic of the box score as they returned during the bottom of the sixth the local Fox affiliate folks put in there a very funny line saving them from some blame if Ogando were to lose it. Ogando of course went ahead and lost...
ARLINGTON, Texas Geovany Soto's three-run homer Thursday off Detroit ace Justin Verlander is one he will tell his grandkids about. Just ask him.
"Hell, yeah," Soto said. "No, but it felt good. Spending so much time in the National League, you only get to see these guys on TV. Once you get to face them, you're like, "Wow!" It felt good."
Tweet We may not see a catch made by an outfielder for the rest of the season better than the one Ben Revere made last month against the Cincinnati Reds. Or maybe we will. Wednesday, during the Texas Rangers’ 6-2 victory over the Oakland A’s, Rangers right fielder Nelson Cruz made a pretty impressive [...]
Somebody needs to help Ian Kinsler out with his sliding form, because this head-first gem isn't right at all.
The Houston Astros have placed second baseman Jose Altuve on the bereavement list because of the passing of his grandmother. Unrelated, he also suffered a jaw injury colliding with Jimmy Paredes Monday night.

Houston Astros right-handed starting pitcher Bud Norris
exited Monday night’s start after tweaking his back. Norris told reporters – including
Anthony Odoardi of MLB.com – that it’s “pretty sore still,” and the Astros are
considering him day-to-day and questionable to make his next start.

The 2013 season is still in its infancy but two organizations have already faced more than their fair share of struggles in their minor league systems. The Texas Rangers entered the year with one of the better systems in baseball, while the Toronto Blue Jays fell somewhere in the middle after nearly gutting the system in what may amount to a misguided attempt to rebuild the big league...
Brandon Barnes stood in center field and felt the wind blowing out a bit - an ominous sign when Miguel Cabrera is at the plate with the bases loaded and two out in the ninth inning.
Sure enough, Cabrera lifted a deep flyball to right-center, forcing Barnes to race over with the game on the line.
''I just knew if he hit it out there, I'd have to get a good bead on it...
