CHICAGO (AP) -- Texas Rangers outfielder Leonys Martin was not in the lineup Sunday against the Chicago White Sox after spraining his right ankle the previous night.

X-rays showed no structural damage. Martin received treatment before Sunday's game and was walking around with a slight limp. He is day to day.

Lucky Roll Helps Ian Kinsler Get an Inside-The-Park Home Run

Keith Allison/Flickr From the looks of the hit it should have just been a double--at the most a triple if he really...

It's a lesson every kid learns day one in Little League — the play isn't over until the umpire makes a call. Chicago White Sox leftfielder Dayan Viciedo finally learned that lesson to his dismay. A ground ball down the left-field line eluded Vicedo and got lost behind the wall allowing Ian Kinsler to round the bases for a bizarre inside-the-park homer. While logic...

MMO Fan Shot: Examining The Shortstop Market For The Mets

While we have spent much time debating over whether to trade for Elvis Andrus or Jurickson Profar, the word out of Arlington is that neither Profar or Andrus will be dangled this offseason. Rather, Ian Kinsler is the player the Rangers would prefer to trade. Profar is 21; Andrus is 24; Kinsler is 31. Therefore, Kinsler’s future is a lot shorter than the other two. Now, while Andrus...

Sox Stay Hot with Series Win over Texas

A few weeks ago, one would figure that the weekend series against the Texas Rangers in late August would be about Elvis Night, the Civil Rights Game, Family Sunday, and the returns of AJ Pierzynski, Alex Rios, and Neal Cotts.

The countdown is on

What countdown?  The magic number countdown, of course. I rely on BigWillieQ on Twitter every day to see how close the Rangers are to clinching a spot for October baseball.  We’re currently sitting at 31, by the way. I remember last year at this time, the Rangers were slowly (although it felt rapid) losing their lead in the AL West.  It was a title they would surrender by the...
