Holiday wish list: Texas Rangers

The Texas Rangers weren't 'supposed' to win the AL West in 2015, especially after ace Yu Darvish went down in spring training...but they did just that. First-year manager Jeff Banister's steady leadership and a stable complement of veteran hitters, a solid bullpen and a rotation boosted by midseason acquisition Cole Hamels got the job done, though they fell short of any World Series...

Rangers retain Wilson, solidifying 2016 catching situation

In the final few months of the 2015 regular season, the Texas Rangers survived an injury to starting catcher Robinson Chirinos thanks to the duo of Chris Gimenez and Bobby Wilson - and both will now return to the club in 2016. Earlier this week the Rangers retained Wilson, according to Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News, which more or less solidifies their catching situation...

Texas Rangers trade rumors: Jonathan Lucroy edition

Robinson Chirinos and Chris Gimenez are currently the only two catchers on the Rangers 40-man roster. Both players have shown they can play in the big leagues, however not as consistently as the Rangers would hope. Both have been hit and miss offensively, and while Chirinos has endured more playing time, it’s not necessarily because he’s earned it. Chirinos has simply been the...

Rangers know they need catching upgrade, but Lucroy trade a 'dream'

The Texas Rangers managed to win the AL West in 2015 without a full-time catcher.

Daniels: Rangers not opposed to making catching upgrade

The Texas Rangers used journeyman catcher Chris GImenez in their lineup for parts of the ALDS against the Toronto Blue Jays. While Gimenez hit pretty well for the Rangers down the stretch, playing for the injured Robinson Chirinos, the fact that he was their de facto No. 1 backstop in the postseason was not exactly a best-case scenario for the club.That's probably why GM Jon Daniels is...

Gimenez enjoying career-best month with Rangers

Chris Gimenez is the quintessential 'journeyman' ballplayer. The 32-year-old catcher has spent parts of seven seasons in the big leagues but has logged even more time in the minors.  Currently, however, he's enjoying the best month or so of his major-league career with the Texas Rangers. In 19 games with Texas, Gimenez has hit five home runs (already his career high for a season...
