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.
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...
The one given for the Detroit Tigers this season was supposed to be offense. The defense was going to be questionable and there was some uncertainty over the back end of the rotation, but no one doubted that the Tigers would hit.
Right now, they aren't hitting.
In Detroit's last 10 games, the offense has produced only 30 runs at a .210 batting average - a rate that has...
The Texas Rangers pretty much had their way with the high priced Detroit Tigers high powered offense this weekend. The Rangers are the best team in Baseball now with their record of 13-3 and if the team continues to play the way they are right now will run away with it this season. The Rangers took 3 out of 4 against the Tigers this weekend. The only thing that stopped the sweep...
Well, it’s not about Brandon Inge.
So, what is it about?
Is it about the lack of a mean streak?
Is there a mean SOB in the minor league system who could replace the friendly Inge?
Yes, there was another Bad Max sighting. But the Tigers scored a relatively healthy 4 runs, with comforting contributions from the middle of the order. Still, they were no match for the mild Mariners...
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...
The Rangers head back to Texas to celebrate Pudge Rodriguez’ retirement, and the Seattle Mariners drop into the D for a 3-game set against the 10-6 Tigers.
The Rangers series may not have been as bad as it sometimes seemed: The Rangers bombed the Tigers in the first game of the series, but after a bad 1st inning in the second game, the Tigers played them even, only giving up 6...
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.

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...
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...
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.
When I predicted yesterday that...
Listen, I know that it is still very early in the MLB season, but I have to say this and this still stand for the rest of the season. We saw the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim go pick Albert Pujols and sign him to a 10-year deal. We saw the Detroit Tigers get Prince Fielder and sign him to a 9-year deal. These moves, along with a few others, had people talking about the Angels and...
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...
