Royals are ready to bounce back and take care of business in Texas

Kansas City leads the AL Central this late in a season for the first time in 11 years, playing its best baseball over the last month to capture first place. The Royals haven't lost much during that span, so they're not about to fret over a single defeat as they head to Arlington for a three-game series with the Texas Rangers on Friday night.

This is what happens when multiple MLB teams share a social media guy

Because we’re aware that most pro sports teams now have their own social media teams (or at least solo experts), we had assumed that all of them did. Clearly, that isn’t the case. Because as Marc Normandin at SB Nation points out, on Wednesday, the Toronto Blue Jays’ official Twitter account mistook itself for the Texas Rangers’ account. So it turns out whoever runs the...

Adrian Beltre backs Rangers’ coaching staff for 2015

Adrian Beltre, he has been told, really should consider talking more often to the media. For one, his English is far better than he gives himself credit, better than some of his English-speaking teammates. But he is insightful, and his words make an impact. As a veteran in his 17th season, he can also say things that need to be said. Such was the case Wednesday morning. An otherwise...

Video: Position players that have taken the hill in 2014

Warning: Here you’ll observe the best pitching machanics, the nasties stuff and the funnest moments of these players’ life. Your browser does not support iframes. I was probably correct with the best moments, however Los Angels Dodgers‘ catcher Drew Butera and Texas Rangers‘ infielder Mitch Moreland both could likely qualify in these categories.

Not so fast: Darvish's return uncertain

When Rangers SP Yu Darvish was placed on the DL last week, the team sounded pretty sure that he'd come back on August 25, when eligible. Now, they're not nearly as sure when their ace will return. Manager Ron Washington said Tuesday that he's "not really thinking about the 25th" for Darvish, who hasn't thrown since August 9. Washington added: "I don...

Ron Washington: ‘I’m backing off’ idea of Yu Darvish returning on August 25

Apparently, RHP Yu Darvish won’t miss just the minimum two weeks required by his recent placement on the DL with elbow inflammation. Darvish, who did not travel with the club to Miami, has not thrown in the week since he complained of the elbow soreness and manager Ron Washington on Tuesday said he was “backing off” his announced intent for the pitcher to be activated next week.

Texas Rangers stars Beltre, Darvish, clear waivers, can be traded

Beltre and Darvish are unlikely to move Credit: AP/LM Otero The Texas Rangers are the worst team in baseball and their tragic number (that being their losses combined with wins by playoff-spot-holding teams) is a mere 14.  That means by the end of the week, they might be mathematically eliminated.  The Rangers were curiously quite at the trade deadline, with talented trade pieces...
