Darvish feels good heading into Tuesday start

ARLINGTON, Texas While some people may be concerned about how the 130-pitch outing by Yu Darvish in his last start will impact him Tuesday, Darvish isn't one of them. The right-hander, who is scheduled to pitch against Oakland Tuesday, hasn't changed anything about his routine since he beat the Tigers Thursday. "I didn't have much fatigue after the 130 pitches...

Ian Kinsler - 15 Day DL - Intercoastal Strain

The Texas Rangers placed 2B Ian Kinsler on the 15-Day DL with an Intercoastal Strain.  Kinsler was having a nice season, hitting .302 with 7 home runs and 20 RBI.  The Rangers called up top prospect Jurickson Profar to fill in and he is a must own in all league formats.  Profar had 17 ABs with the Rangers last season and managed just 3 hits (2 doubles) but Profar had 40 hits...

The most decadent menu items at MLB ballparks

The Pittsburgh Pirates, Texas Rangers, Chicago White Sox and other Major League clubs have reset the gluttony bar with their latest menu pairings.

Gone are the days where a simple burger and fries was the worst...

Darvish gives up one run in loss

Where, oh where has the Rangers offense gone?  I feel like they used it all in the Detroit series.  Or something. All I know is I want it back. Yu Darvish pitched six frames, and the only Oakland run was a home run by Yeonis Cespedes.  Honestly, Darvish wasn’t his sharpest tonight, but he was still good enough for a win. If only he’d had a little offense to help him out. Unfortunately...

Ian Kinsler to the DL, Jurickson Profar called up

The Texas Rangers will get another look at one of their top prospects.  Unfortunately, the look at Jurickson Profar comes under less than ideal circumstances.  The team has placed veteran Ian Kinsler on the disabled list, clearing room for Profar on the 25-man roster. According to Todd Willis of ESPN Dallas, Kinsler was placed on the DL retroactive to Saturday.  He is suffering...

Elvis Andrus responds to leadoff role with five hits

ARLINGTON, Texas Elvis Andrus said all the right things about not wanting to take Ian Kinsler's spot as the Rangers' leadoff hitter. But his bat spoke even louder. Andrus was a career-best 5-for-5 while hitting first in Saturday's 7-2 win over the Tigers. Andrus also scored three runs, drove in two, stole two bases and was a home run shy of the cycle. It was his second...

Rangers' offense shows some life against Athletics

ARLINGTON, Texas The Rangers' offense surfaced briefly in the first inning Wednesday, then went back into the same hiding place it's been occupying since the Oakland Athletics hit town. The Rangers scored all of their runs in Wednesday's 3-1 win in the first inning, on homers by David Murphy and Adrian Beltre. Then the Rangers had just one runner in scoring position...

Jurickson Profar Opportunity Is Calling Your Name

When the season began many people expected that top prospect Jurickson Profar would make the Texas Rangers Opening Day roster. Texas instead opted to send their young superstar to Triple-A Round Rock and this would allow him to enhance his skills as a player. There would be an opportunity for him to join the team if a player was injured during the season. That chance has come up...
