Texas Rangers: Breaking down the bullpen shake-up

The Texas Rangers have had their early shortcomings this season. The offense got off to a miserable start, but has now turned it around. Starting pitching continues to be a roller coaster ride, but has seemingly been on the rise more than the fall. The one area that has struggled throughout is the bullpen.

St. Louis Cardinals: A tale of two lefties

The deal of Sam Freeman is beneficial to all parties involved. The Cards get some working room in the form of an open roster space and Sam gets a chance to work himself up the depth chart for the Rangers.
