Will the Rangers go to a six-man rotation before the 2019 season comes to a close?

Will the Rangers go to a six-man rotation before the 2019 season comes to a close?

ARLINGTON -- Chris Woodward said the Rangers could use a six-man rotation at some point in the final five weeks of the season, meaning veteran rotation stalwarts Mike Minor and Lance Lynn could miss a turn through the rotation in favor of younger pitchers."[Lynn] wants to see some of our guys pitch," Woodward said. "He's still got two more years invested here. He wants to win. ... He's invested in the team probably more than anybody."-- Brock Burke, who threw six shutout innings in his major-league debut on Tuesday, will remain in the Rangers rotation and start Sunday at the White Sox.Roster...

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

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. Only Mike Minor, who will start the series finale, is guaranteed of a 2020 spot (and that’s provided the Rangers don’t trade him this offseason). Monday starter Kolby Allard, along with Brock Burke and Joe Palumbo, the scheduled starters for...

Mike Minor gives up a pair of home runs as Rangers lose to Twins , 4-3

Rangers starter Mike Minor allowed two rare home runs at Globe Life Park.It was enough for the Twins to capitalize in a 4-3 victory. Jonathan Schoop launched a two-run homer to left field with one out in the seventh to put the Twins ahead to stay. In the sixth, Nomar Mazara's double to the wall had scored Shin-Soo Choo and Willie Calhoun to briefly give the Rangers a 3-2 lead. Minor (11-7) also allowed a fourth-inning home run to Max Kepler after Jorge Polanco reached when Rougned Odor dropped a pop-up for an error. Woodward and Minor each noted the swirling winds out to right in the...

60-62 - The Big Chill stays frosty but Rangers fall to Twins 4-3

Photo by Tom Pennington/ Texas could never get that big hit in the end to finish off the late rallies Mike Minor hadn’t allowed a run this month until giving up a two-run homer to Mitch Garver one pitch after a Rougned Odor error in the top of the fourth inning in tonight’s 4-3 loss to the Twins. Since the Texas Rangers had scored a total of two runs for Minor in his starts this month, one could have assumed this game could just be chalked up as a loss right then and there. However, the Rangers scored a run in the bottom of the inning and then took a one-run lead in the sixth with...

Photo by Vaughn Ridley/ Texas is back below .500 The worst crime the 2019 Texas Rangers can commit is being is boring to watch and that’s pretty much exactly what they’ve been since they began this road trip and decided scoring runs was not going to be a part of our lives anymore. Tonight, the Rangers scored zero runs. In the eight games so far on this nine-game trip, the Rangers have scored a total of 14 runs for an average of 1.75 runs per game. They’ve actually managed two wins on this road trip, two games they won by the score of 1-0 with Mike Minor on the mound being the...

Texas Rangers Week 20 Recap: Two Minor Wins

Photo by Dylan Buell/ Mike Minor was awesome this week. The offense though? Not so much... Season record: 59-58 Week 20 record: 2-4 Series record: 15-13, 10 splits The Texas Rangers had just two wins this week. Both were 1-0 scores. Both had Mike Minor has the starting pitcher. Both included Jose Leclerc saves. It was a very weird week for the Rangers as far as offense goes. The entire Cleveland series was low scoring and it felt like it had been a while since we had seen the Rangers have such a low scoring game, much less three games in a row in one series. The Rangers were outscored...

59-58 - Minor shows ‘em what they’re missing in 1-0 interleague finale win for Rangers

Photo by Dylan Buell/ The Rangers end the losing streak and get the heck out of the National League with a finale win How bad is National League baseball? Jeff Mathis, the worst hitter of this decade, was intentionally allowed to reach base freely in a key situation forcing Mike Minor to bat. I can’t believe the sport survived a hundred years with that league’s rules. Nevertheless, the Rangers are finished with NL style baseball for the rest of the decade and they leave the Senior Circuit in true NL-style with a 1-0 victory! The one run, of course, coming on a real thinking-man’s...
