Ryan remains with the Rangers; now what?

It was a short, simple press release, issued after the conclusion of a bitingly cold game at Rangers Ballpark. But it was enough. Nolan Ryan is staying with the Texas Rangers. Rangers fans rejoiced at Wednesday's announcement, which ended weeks of speculation about Ryan's tenure with the club. The Ryan Express will be tied to the Rangers organization for the foreseeable...

Will Jurickson Profar Get Traded By Texas Rangers?

Jurickson Profar has been chosen by many baseball analysts to be the breakout rookie in the American League this season. The middle infielder had a chance to make the Texas Rangers major league roster straight out of Spring Training; after posting a .216/.322/.275 line in 51 Cactus League at-bats, the organization felt it was best for the 20-year-old to get a little more seasoning...

Lance Berkman rips Wrigley Field

The Rangers begin a series against the Cubs at Wrigley Field on Tuesday and DH Lance Berkman didn't mince words when providing his thoughts on the stadium.

Yu Darvish Sniffs Him a Fatty--Piece of Wood That Is

Yu Darvish does not appear to be suffering from any sort of sophomore jinx or slump of any kind. Through three games he has 28 Ks, a 2.75 ERA, and came within an out of a perfect game. Not bad; not bad at all. With the team minus its firepower this year with Hamilton gone to La-La land (okay, so maybe it really left about half way through last season) the focus is going to be...

Darvish smells Nelson Cruz's broken bat

Okay, there are a ton of questions related to this GIF, but we’ll try to break it down. We’re not sure if it passes the sniff test. Nelson Cruz broke his bat in the sixth inning of Saturday night’s Rangers-Mariners game, according to GoldAndOrSmith.com. The top half of the bat wound up back in the Rangers’ dugout, the bat was passed to Yu Darvish, and for some reason, he...

Oscar Taveras for Jurickson Profar rumors persist. Does it make sense?

It seems like a day cannot go by without someone bringing up the possibility of a Oscar Taveras for Jurickson Profar trade.  The latest coming from former GM Jim Bowden on ESPN Insider (subscription required), who labels it as a "challenge" trade--one that could define the GM's careers. Of the face of it, the trade seems to make sense.  Profar is generally consider...

Rangers rally late for 3-1 win

After last night’s disappointing game, I was unsure about which Rangers team would come out to play in Safeco tonight.  Fortunately, it was the good one, complete with a Leury Garcia debut and a Joe Nathan save.  It makes for a happy Saturday night. Alexi Ogando only made it through five innings, ending his night at 98 pitches.  He had to work hard in those five frames, but...

Andrus, Beltre lift Rangers past Mariners

SEATTLE (AP) -- Elvis Andrus and Adrian Beltre each had two-out, RBI singles in the eighth inning to lift the Texas Rangers to a 3-1 win against the Seattle Mariners on Saturday night. Joe Ortiz (2-0) pitched two innings for his second win in three days. Ortiz also earned the win Thursday in the opener of the four-game series. Joe Nathan pitched a perfect ninth for his fourth save...

Rangers Minor League Roundup – 4/15

The Double-A Frisco RoughRiders' bats busted out for 10 runs on Monday evening, getting home runs from catcher Zach Zaneski and centerfielder Jared Hoying. Lone Star Dugout takes a look at all of the day's minor league action in the Texas Rangers' system.

Rangers-Cubs Preview

The Texas Rangers are getting excellent production from their pitchers. That's certainly not the case at the plate, and they may be without their leading hitter for the next few games. With Lance Berkman expected to be relegated to the bench during interleague play, the Rangers open a three-game series Tuesday night against the Chicago Cubs. Texas (8-5) reached the postseason...
