RANGERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Rangers GM Jon Daniels On Trade For Lucas Harrell, Dario Alvarez

The Rangers addressed their pitching staff earlier today when they acquired pitchers Lucas Harrell and Dario Alvarez from the Braves for second base prospect Travis Demeritte. The price was seemingly high—Demeritte was a starter in this year’s All-Star Futures Game—for two pitchers who had very little value when picked up by the Braves in late May. Harrell was signed to a Minor...

Rangers Land Potential Relief Ace

An afternoon trade went down between the Rangers and the Braves. One very much legitimate way of thinking about it: Lucas Harrell isn’t very good, but the back of the Rangers’ rotation lately has been terrible, and this just goes to show how the market for any half-decent starting pitcher right now is inflated. While Travis Demeritte isn’t a top-10 prospect or anything, he...

Frogs in the Pros Update: Bryan Holaday

All I can say is: Holaday pitched again. And it was amazing. Since Robinson Chirinos returned, Bryan Holaday has been Number 2 on the Rangers depth list for catchers.  They seem to be utilizing him for Game 1 of each series. On June 19, the Rangers faced the Cardinals in St. Louis.  Holaday hit for Perez and had ground outs in the top of the 7th and top of the 9th.  The Rangers...

Police escort helped Joey Gallo get to ballpark on time

Texas Rangers powerful prospect Joey Gallo hit a 448-foot opposite field blast after getting called up to the big leagues on Tuesday, but he wouldn’t have been able to do so without some help from a state trooper. Gallo got a phone call at 1:30 PM on Tuesday that he was headed back up to the bigs (he played in 36 games with the Rangers in 2015), so he had to hurry up and get to...

WATCH: Astros, Rangers minor leaguers get into brawl

The Houston Astros and Texas Rangers have had a nice little rivalry since the Astros moved over to the American League, and it appears the hate between the two organizations runs through the veins of the minor league system. On Sunday, players and coaches from the Double-A affiliates of the Astros and Rangers threw punches and more during a second-inning bench-clearing brawl. The...

White Sox's Chris Sale sent home 'due to a clubhouse incident'

The whole idea that Chris Sale was scratched from his Saturday start due to a cold seemed a bit fishy in the first place. Once reports indicated this actually wasn’t the case and the White Sox came out with a statement telling us a vastly different story, most of the baseball world knew something was up. Official: Chris Sale has been scratched from tonight’s scheduled start...

Report: Rangers pushing trade efforts for Sale

Remember the report from Thursday saying that the Chicago White Sox turned down a “king’s ransom” for Chris Sale? We have to wonder if that offer came from the Texas Rangers. MLB.com’s T.R. Sullivan reports that the Rangers are making a serious effort to acquire the southpaw pitcher. Chicago reportedly wants power hitter Joey Gallo and 23-year-old infielder Jurickson Profar...

If You Had to Trade One: Profar or Gallo?

Last season, I didn’t believe the Texas Rangers would win the AL West. They did. This season, I didn’t believe the Texas Rangers would be all that competitive. They have been, but the injury bug isn’t having it. 36-year-old Colby Lewis, along with Derek Holland, find themselves on the disabled list. Cole Hamels is great, as is Yu Darvish, and having two aces in the rotation...

Prince Fielder posts cryptic message amid injury news

Prince Fielder and the Texas Rangers found out about some potentially disappointing news earlier this week when it was learned that the slugger could be out the rest of the season due to a herniated disk in his neck. But it was Fielder who took it to the next level by posting a cryptic message on social media as the news was being disseminated and subsequently discussed. In a...

Do the Rangers Need Another Bullpen Makeover?

One year ago today, the Texas Rangers were 43-48, in third place in the American League West Division. The first-half bullpen looked terrible. Neftali Feliz started the year as the club’s closer and pitched himself right onto the disabled list and right out of town. Tanner Scheppers imploded. Anthony Bass threw more first-half relief innings than anyone, is maybe all you need to...

Report: Rangers willing to trade Joey Gallo for rotation help

As the Texas Rangers go forth into the trade market, it appears as though no player is off limits. According to a report by Jeff Passan of Yahoo!

Trade Rumors: Texas Rangers Pitching Edition

It seems as if every year the Texas Rangers are on the look out for good arms at the trade deadline, in exchange for hard-hitting prospects. This year is no exception. The Rangers big move for Cole Hamels at the deadline last year has definitely paid off as he’s unquestionably been the staff ace ever since, but once you get past Hamels there are a lot of question marks. Yu Darvish...

Sunday Notes: Pitching Profar and Choo, Reds’ Stephenson, more

Shin-Soo Choo and Jurickson Profar could have been pitchers. Both attracted the attention of scouts as hard-throwing amateurs.

Profar excelled on the mound for Willemstad, Curacao when they won the 2004 Little League World Series and again when they lost in...

Rangers pitcher Jake Diekman hits DL after cutting his finger on broken souvenir mug

It always seems that baseball players can go on the disabled list for the most bizarre of injuries. Pitcher Jamie Easterly injured his back in the 1980’s when he stepped in a gopher hole while doing a backwards running drill. Wade Boggs missed a week of action after he strained his back while trying to put on cowboy boots. And who could forget Ryan Dempster needing to spend some...
