TEAMS: Texas Rangers
Braxton Lane inked with Oregon out of high school and signed with the Texas Rangers after being drafted in the 5th round. Four years later he is now looking to go back to college and play football. This past weekend the Georgia native visited Ole Miss. To find out where his recruitment stands, read below.

Rangers skipping Feliz in rotation

ARLINGTON, Texas The Texas Rangers have decided to give starter Neftali Feliz some extra time between starts and he won't start again until the Rangers play in Toronto Tuesday. Feliz started Saturday in Game 2 of a doubleheader in Detroit and will be available in the bullpen for the next few games, including Wednesday's series finale against New York. "We're backing...

Hamilton powering up his value to Rangers

ARLINGTON, Texas On a night when a sluggish Rangers offense was made to look even more drowsy by Yankees starter C.C. Sabathia, Josh Hamilton remained the primary power source for the Rangers offense. Hamilton sent a Sabathia pitch 422 feet into the seats overlooking the Rangers bullpen in the sixth inning of a 7-4 loss. It was Hamilton's eighth home run in 17 games this season...

Andrus extends record, dazzles on field...again

ARLINGTON, Texas As the frenzy over Yu Darvish approaches Beatlemania proportions, don't forget the guy named Elvis. That would be Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus, who had another dazzling game in the field Tuesday in support of Darvish's 2-0 win over the Yankees. Andrus has now gone 50 games without committing an error, extending his club record for errorless games at...

Rangers bump back Feliz's starts to give him extra rest

The Texas Rangers watched first-time starter Alexi Ogando fade and fatigue down the stretch last year. They don't intend to let the same thing happen with Neftali Feliz this season. Manager Ron Washington acknowledged as much Wednesday when announcing the club would move Feliz's next couple of starts around to give him extra rest. Feliz, who threw 119 pitches in an eight...

Darvish's 10 strikeouts leads Rangers to win

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Yu Darvish had a season-high 10 strikeouts pitching into the ninth inning and worked out of a couple of jams for the Texas Rangers in a 2-0 victory over the New York Yankees and countryman Hiroki Kuroda on Tuesday night. In only the seventh MLB matchup ever of Japanese starters, Darvish (3-0) allowed seven hits and walked a season-low two in 8 1-3 innings...

Rangers Minor League Roundup – 4/22

Although the Frisco RoughRiders lost their third consecutive game on Sunday, third baseman Mike Olt belted his fourth home run of the season. Lone Star Dugout takes a look at all of the day's minor league action in the Texas Rangers' system.

Yankees vs Rangers: Whose hitters are hotter?

Photograph by Googie Man (Photo credit: Wikipedia) Even though the 2012 MLB season is still so young, the media has labeled the Rangers as the best team in baseball. This is not surprising, as the sports media has a certain love for the Rangers and always gives them the benefit of the doubt. Currently, the Yankees, also...

Holland can’t hang with Sabathia

Derek Holland just didn’t have it tonight.  Maybe he was unnerved watching Pudge Rodriguez pitch from home to 2nd for the first pitch of the game.  Or maybe he just didn’t have it. Holland gave up two runs on three hits in the 1st inning.  Then he calmed down a little for the next few innings.  It seemed probable that the offense could catch up.  Until the 5th, when Holland...

Not-So-Rapid Reaction: Rangers 2, Yankees 0

On Monday night, excellent lefties CC Sabathia and Derek Holland combined to allow 11 runs. With struggling right-handers Hiroki Kuroda and Yu Darvish set to do battle last night, I was fully expecting a display of offensive fireworks, one that would thoroughly disappoint an entire nation that had called in sick from work just to see this game. Oops. When I predicted yesterday that...

Tongue-wagging Rangers fan crashes Tigers live broadcast (Video)

FOX Sports reporter Shannon Hogan was videobombed during a live segment at Sunday's Detroit Tigers game by a Texas Rangers fan who stood right behind her wagging his tongue. The Rangers fan started out innocently enough, showing off his jersey and walking away. However, a few seconds later, the Rangers fan came back and started wagging his tongue like a crazed maniac...

Darvish stifles Yankees

Tonight was just Yu Darvish’s second home start. His first one was a little shaky — he only went 5.2 innings, allowing five runs on eight hits and four walks.  To the Mariners. This evening, against the Yankees, he left the mound in the 9th inning with a shutout on the line and the crowd on their feet, applauding. They did it last time too, but he seemed to accept it this time...
