Friday Morning Links

Links! The thought of maximizing Adrian Beltre’s trade value by DH’ing him makes me a little sad. Rougned Odor bunted for a hit on Wednesday for the first time since last year. Baphomet will not be appeased. Jeff Banister got ejected yesterday when he went to ask the home plate ump “Yanny or Laurel?” Isiah Kiner-Filefa is already getting comparisons to Michael Young. Way to waste Doug Fister’s solid outing, you guys. Cole Hamels has got a stiff neck, because of course he does. Elvis Andrus has resumed baseball activities.

Rangers' Elvis Andrus announces on Instagram his second child is on the way

The Texas Rangers family continues to grow.On Instagram Sunday night (Mother's Day of all days), shortstop Elvis Andrus announced that he is expecting a second child."My biggest blessing this year," Andrus wrote.

Texas Rangers Saturday lineup

Texas Rangers Saturday lineup

Jeff Banister is sticking today with what I expect will be his normal lineup against righthanders going forward The Texas Rangers look to make it two in a row against the Houston Astros this evening, and Jeff Banister is rolling with what I suspect will be his normal lineup, at least against righthanded pitchers, until Elvis Andrus returns. The lineup: DeShields -- CF Choo -- DH Mazara — RF Beltre — 3B Gallo -- LF Profar -- SS Odor — 2B Chirinos -- C Guzman — 1B Doug Fister is on the mound, going up against Charlie Morton for the Astros. And if you are mad Isiah Kiner-Falefa is on...

This Rangers season is destined to be bad, but there are plenty of ways to keep it from also being a waste

This Rangers season is destined to be bad, but there are plenty of ways to keep it from also being a waste

ARLINGTON - Judging from my scouting report, between what the Rangers and Tigers scraped up Wednesday, we almost had a starting nine. Almost. Trust me, this was less a reflection of typical get-away lineups than a preview of your summer viewing.The good news is Nomar Mazara and Delino DeShields show signs lately of growing into larger roles, especially in the absence of their elders, who notice these things."Under the circumstances, they need to do this," Elvis Andrus said. "There's no other way to go."True, and now for the really bad news: The Rangers don't have enough feel-good stories like...

Thoughts on a 6-1 Rangers loss

Thoughts on a 6-1 Rangers loss

Red Sox 6, Rangers 1 Red Sox 6, Rangers 1 Chris Sale is one of the best pitchers in baseball. He’s also lefthanded. The Rangers’ offense is not good right now, and the guys who do hit well are generally lefthanded hitters. Their two best righty bats, Adrian Beltre and Elvis Andrus, are both on the disabled list. Given that, this seemed like a game the Rangers would be expected to lose. And hey, they did lose! Doug Fister got the start, and seemed like he was in line to register a quality start, as he had allowed two runs through five innings, and then struck out Xander Bogaerts...

Elvis Andrus, Rangers react to Ichiro moving to Mariners' front office, potential retirement

Elvis Andrus, Rangers react to Ichiro moving to Mariners' front office, potential retirement

While fans in North Texas said goodbye to Jason Witten, the baseball world might be saying farewell to one of its all-time greats.After signing a one-year deal with the Seattle Mariners before the season, the team announced Thursday Ichiro Suzuki will be moving into a front office role for the remainder of the 2018 season. His playing status for 2019 remains up in the air, according to his agent.But if the career of the only active player with more hits (3,089) than Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre (3,075) is indeed over, he definitely left an impression in Texas. "Ten years, 200 hits? I...

Rangers move Elvis Andrus to 60-day DL to make room on roster for waiver-claim Chris Perez

Rangers move Elvis Andrus to 60-day DL to make room on roster for waiver-claim Chris Perez

To make room on the 40-man roster for waiver-claim catcher Carlos Perez, the Rangers moved Elvis Andrus from the 10-day to 60-day disabled list Wednesday. It means Andrus would not be eligible to be activated until June 11 at the earliest.The good news for Andrus: He is expected to begin rehabbing his right elbow on the Rangers’ upcoming homestand.Andrus will see team medical director Dr. Keith Meister Thursday and could begin some arm strengthening exercises after giving his fractured right elbow almost four weeks to heal. Andrus had hoped to begin the process during the current road trip,...

With roster decimated by injuries, Rangers GM Jon Daniels is talking about 'long-term benefits'

With roster decimated by injuries, Rangers GM Jon Daniels is talking about 'long-term benefits'

CLEVELAND - Literally backed into a corner Tuesday, Rangers general manager Jon Daniels sounded like a man looking to the future rather than spending too much time salvaging 2018.At this point, the only thing he could be accused of is being realistic.The Rangers began the second month of the season Tuesday at 11-19 and on a 100-loss pace. They have lost Adrian Beltre, Elvis Andrus, Rougned Odor and Martin Perez to significant injuries. They were already nine games out in the AL West and eight games out of a wild card race that hasn't even begun yet.In discussing the first month of the season,...

Texas Rangers Inbox column from T.R. Sullivan

Texas Rangers Inbox column from T.R. Sullivan

T.R. Sullivan rolls out his latest Inbox column Texas Rangers questions involving Ronald Guzman, Willie Calhoun and Elvis Andrus, among others, are fielded by T.R. Sullivan in his latest Inbox column. Among other things, he addresses the inevitable “is Elvis going to opt out?” and “when will the Rangers trade Cole Hamels and Adrian Beltre” questions that are a staple of the 2018 season. What caught my eye, though, is Sullivan saying of Ronald Guzman that “[he] is here, he is going to stay here and he is going to get an extended chance to show what he can do.” If that’s the...
