It's been quite a two-day stretch for Texas Rangers left-hander Matt Harrison. On Sunday, he was selected to the American League All-Star team for the first time in his career. On Monday, Harrison was chosen the AL Pitcher of the Month for June, becoming the first Ranger to win the monthly pitching award since Kenny Rogers in 2005. Rogers went 5-0 with a 1.29 ERA over six starts in June. He ranked second in the AL in ERA for the month and third in innings (42), one-third of an inning behind co-leaders Justin Verlander and Jake Peavy.

Harrison will make his final sta...

Rangers' Darvish seems to have inside track for final All-Star spot

The Texas Rangers began a campaign Sunday afternoon to help right-hander Yu Darvish earn the final spot on the AL All-Star roster. He would become the eighth Ranger on the team.
