RANGERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Alex Rios’ Missed Fly Ball Clocks Leonys Martin In The Head (Video)

The Boston Red Sox have been really bad this season, but at least they’re not the Texas Rangers.

As if losing wasn’t bad...

WATCH: Rangers’ outfielders collide on fly ball

When the Texas Rangers are 42-65, losing can sometimes become an art. The Rangers’ outfielders Leonys Martin and Alex Rios made a funny play on this routine fly ball into right center off the bat of the New York Yankees’ Brett Gardner (mlb.com). They didn’t do it on purpose obviously, but the surprise made it entertaining. This scored Brendan Ryan from second base, which was...

WATCH: Alex Rios Drops Ball, Nearly KO’s Teammate

Well this was interesting. While attempting to casually catch a fly ball against the New York Yankees on Tuesday, Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Alex Rios let said ball bounce off his glove and on to the head of centerfielder Leonys Martin.  I am not too sure how many of you are old enough to remember then Texas Rangers outfielder Jose Canseco letting a ball bounce off his head...

Alex Rios: Everyman Outfielder

After finishing no worse than second in the AL West between 2008 and 2013, the Texas Rangers stumbled hard this season. As July winds down, they are stuck at the bottom of the division, 23.5 games behind the Oakland A’s. Like the Boston Red Sox, the Rangers find themselves in the unfamiliar position of selling at the deadline rather than buying. One player who could soon find himself...

Darvish, big inning propel Rangers to rare win

ARLINGTON, Texas - The Texas Rangers certainly didn't look like a team that was 23 games under .500 Monday night in their series opener against the New York Yankees. Their ace was doing ace-like things, as Yu Darvish struck out eight and punctuated his night with a fist pump following a strikeout of Brian McCann to end the seventh inning. The offense was able to string together...

Mikolas can't carry success from his last start over

ARLINGTON, Texas - One of the requirements in the ongoing audition for rotation spots for the Texas Rangers is having the ability to be consistent from start-to-start. Miles Mikolas is still trying to meet that requirement. Mikolas, who helped his resume with a nice start at New York Monday, couldn't use that start as momentum for his Sunday start against Oakland.
