Why the Rangers may have too many left-handers vying for spots in their 2020 starting rotation

ARLINGTON — The Rangers this week begin the process of vetting possible 2020 starting rotation candidates in earnest.On this, they face the same question they do when it comes to their lineup: Are there too many left-handers?The Rangers began a four-game series with the Los Angeles Angels Monday in which all four scheduled starters are lefties.

Game Recap: Astros hold off Tigers’ late comeback in 5-4 game

Game Recap: Astros hold off Tigers’ late comeback in 5-4 game

Baseball is a weird game, where sometimes even the best team can fall to the worst teams on any given day. The Tigers (.303 winning percentage) are certainly the latter right now, and the Astros (.635) are arguably the former, but in a slow Monday night game, Houston put up a big first inning, and managed to fend off a Detroit comeback attempt to force the expected outcome, 5-4. It looked like things might be off to a rough start. Detroit led off the game...
