Will the Mets and Rangers match for Gee, Profar?

The New York Mets and Texas Rangers may match for a deal that will send Dillon Gee and, “additional pieces,” to the Rangers for Jurickson Profar, reports MLB Daily Dish’s Chris Cotillo. The Mets were looking to deal Gee this offseason, but the team was unable to complete a trade in an oversaturated pitching market. Gee, 28, is set to serve as a long-man out of the bullpen...

2015 season preview: Texas Rangers

The Texas Rangers would like to forget 2014 ever happened. Coming into last season with big expectations based on the additions of Prince Fielder and Shin-Soo Choo, Texas was decimated by injuries throughout the lineup and starting rotation, and it was too much to overcome. New manager Jeff Banister could be the new voice this team needs, and his analytical approach meshes better...

Yu Darvish busts out a ‘bulls–t’ during his first English-only presser

Texas Rangers pitcher Yu Darvish for the first time Sunday held a press conference in which he answered all the questions in English. And given that his commitment to the team last season was called into question, perhaps it wasn’t surprising to hear the Japanese phenom sprinkle his comments with a minor dose of profanity....Read More The post Yu Darvish busts out a ‘bull-s–t’...

Yu Darvish on notion he quit on Rangers: ‘That’s BS‘

Yu Darvish is working on his English, in part so he can convey his feelings as accurately as possible. He already has the curse words down.

Darvish made it clear there's no quit in him in first English-only presser

Texas right-hander Yu Darvish didn't just dominate on the mound in Sunday's intrasquad game. Darvish dominated in his postgame interview, and not in Japanese either. Darvish conducted his first interview session with American beat writers in English and put to bed any notion that he quit on the Rangers last season when he went down with inflammation in his right elbow. "That's bull...

Rangers scratch Holland from intrasquad game

The Texas Rangers were quick to downplay the fact that left-hander Derek Holland was scratched from starting Sunday's intrasquad game. So was Holland.  General manager Jon Daniels said Holland was experiencing "normal" spring soreness in his left shoulder and Holland agreed with the diagnosis, although he wanted to still pitch in Sunday's game. "It's just precautionary," Holland...

Will Elvis Andrus Rebound in 2015?

(Mandatory Credit: ESPN/Getty Images) In the midst of the Texas Rangers’ abysmal 2014 that saw them go just 67-95, shortstop Elvis Andrus slumped to his worst season as a pro. The Rangers number two hitter hit just .263 with an on-base percentage of .314, both career lows. He provided little power, but perhaps the most disappointing thing was the severe drop in steals, down...

Rangers can rely on solid catching duo

SURPRISE, Ariz. –€“ Jorge Alfaro may be the future behind the plate for the Texas Rangers but the present isn't looking so bad either. While Alfaro gains experience in big-league camp with the Rangers this spring the veteran duo of Robinson Chirinos and Carlos Corporan are able to provide the club with a steadying force behind the plate.

Rangers have plenty of options for No. 5 starter

SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Sniper focus. It's a phrase new Texas manager Jeff Banister has used with his team already this spring about how they should approach the game. It's no more fitting for any position than the competition for the No. 5 spot in the starting rotation. Nick Tepesch has to focus on what he does and not worry about how Nick Martinez performs. Or Ross Detwiler. Or Lisalverto...

Dark horse World Series contenders in 2015

Everyone thinks they know who the favorites for the World Series are this year. But as we saw with the Royals last year, sometimes teams come out of nowhere to make an unlikely postseason run. We’re not talking about trendy sleeper picks like the Mariners, Indians and both Chicago teams. We’re talking about real dark horse World Series contenders, teams that nobody is really...
