Rangers' Nomar Mazara, Danny Santana leave Monday night's game with injuries

Rangers' Nomar Mazara, Danny Santana leave Monday night's game with injuries

Both the Rangers’ best hitter and their hottest hitter left Monday’s game with injuries, which could pave the way for infielder/outfielder Nick Solak to make his major league debut this week.Nomar Mazara, who began the day with a .916 OPS for August, left with what was called a tweak in his left oblique. Danny Santana, who was just a few at-bats shy of qualifying to be one of the AL’s top 10 hitters, left with a strained left hamstring after a double in the fourth inning. The Rangers are expected to re-evaluate both on Tuesday. They did, however, appear to take the step of preparing...

Given that both Nomar Mazara and Danny Santana were removed from tonight’s Texas Rangers game with injuries, this would seem to be an indication that Solak is likely being called up for tomorrow’s doubleheader. Solak was acquired by the Rangers from the Tampa Bay Rays in July, 2019, in exchange...

He was replaced by Isiah Kiner-Falefa. The Rangers had called up Scott Heineman earlier today, giving them a four man bench, but with the loss of Santana and Nomar Mazara, who left earlier tonight with left oblique soreness, the Rangers appear to be short handed again.

Rangers stock report: Nomar Mazara trending up, Texas' ugly base running and more

Who's hot right now and not right now for the Rangers ...The Rangers' index has become as volatile as the NYSE here in recent weeks as the team has taken a sharp turn for the worse. Ever since the Rangers went to Tampa in June -- and manager Chris Woodward seemed to indicate the Rays were exposing some flaws -- the team has been in a downward spiral. A four-game sweep to Minnesota left the Rangers at 15-28 (.349) since the start of that Tampa Bay series. It is the fourth-worst MLB win percentage in that time, ahead of only Miami, Pittsburgh and Detroit. So, in order to find the hots, you've...

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

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...

Evan Grant writes that the Rangers’ struggles against top teams this year is highlighted by the difficulties against those teams that Rougned Odor and Nomar Mazara have had. Jeff Wilson runs down the pitchers in the minors who likely will be called up this year, who likely won’t be called up this year, and who are on the bubble.
