What's behind pitcher Jose Leclerc's improvement on the mound?

What's behind pitcher Jose Leclerc's improvement on the mound?

Evan Grant, Rangers beat writer for SportsDayDFW.com and The Dallas Morning News, answered your questions about the team in a live chat recently. Check out the highlights:Leclerc seems back together, were his issues on the mound purely in his own head?Grant: Based on what Leclerc has said, there were no real major issues on the mound. The Rangers did make a little bit of a tweak to keep his head from drifting off, which could have had an impact on the fastball command. But I do think he needed to break the cycle of pressure of high leverage situations. That was a big relief for him mentally....

Rodriguez, Hernandez struggle in starts tonight

Righty starters Jonathan Hernandez and Yerry Rodriguez each had somewhat tough outings on the farm tonight Jonathan Hernandez took the mound for the Frisco Roughriders tonight, and had mixed results against the Corpus Christi Hooks. He missed bats but also allowed some runs, ultimately allowing the Hooks to plate 5 in 6 IP, striking out 6, walking 3 and allowing 7 hits. Emmanuel Clase, meanwhile, had another problematic outing, facing 6 batters, walking 1 of them and allowing 3 hits, resulting in 2 runs that allowed the Hooks to tie the score in the bottom of the 9th.

Chris Woodward thinks Joey Gallo is the Rangers' best position player. What does that mean for his future with the team?

Chris Woodward thinks Joey Gallo is the Rangers' best position player. What does that mean for his future with the team?

ANAHEIM, Calif. - On Saturday afternoon, Rangers manager Chris Woodward was explaining why Joey Gallo, the AL's current King of OPS, was once again hitting in the No. 5 spot in his lineup, which is so very old school.He said the No. 5 spot holds some level of familiarity for Gallo, which makes him comfortable and at ease, but also acknowledged that at some point, he's going to move Gallo into the top three spots in the batting order."You see a lot of teams putting their best player in the No. 2 spot now," Woodward started before being interrupted.Hold up: He's your best player?"Yeah, among...

Elvis Andrus returns to Rangers lineup hoping to help continue team's recent success

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Elvis Andrus was back in the Rangers lineup Saturday, and not a moment too soon.Not because the team has struggled while Andrus was on the injured list; they were 8-1 while he was out with a strained hamstring. It's because, well, Andrus can be a real pain in the neck or elsewhere when sitting on the bench with nothing to do."He yells at the umpire or the catcher every single pitch," manager Chris Woodward said with a laugh. "That's why I'm glad he's back in the lineup."Andrus missed the minimum 10 days while dealing with the hamstring issue. It was second-ever assignment to...

Elvis Andrus activated, Delino DeShields optioned

Elvis Andrus activated, Delino DeShields optioned

The Rangers have activated Elvis Andrus from the injured list to replace Delino DeShields Texas Rangers transactions: Elvis Andrus has been officially activated from the 10 day injured list, the team announced today. He takes the place of Delino DeShields on the active roster — DeShields was optioned to AAA Nashville after last night’s game. Both moves were, I think, pretty well expected. Elvis played in rehab games with Frisco on Tuesday and Wednesday, and today was the first day he was eligible to be activated from the i.l. Had the injury happened to Elvis in 2020, when there will...

Check out the highlights:Is Yu Darvish a Ranger again within the next 2-3 seasons?Grant: I've predicted that previously. But I do think he's getting a bit of footing in Chicago and the Cubs are playing well. So, unless Chicago was desperate to unload him and to eat some money in the process after this year, I don't think it's going to happen. And I don't think Darvish is going to opt out of his contract there. Is Hunter Pence eligible for any kind...

Pitcher Drew Smyly records first victory since 2016 as Rangers extend winning streak to five games

ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Pitching wins don't matter any longer.Except when they do.They matter when you've gone more than two years and a Tommy John surgery between them. They matter when they extend win streaks. And they matter when you help the pitching staff prop up an offense that has, for the most part, been a team's strength.They mattered Friday when Drew Smyly went six innings in the Rangers' 4-3 win over the Los Angeles Angels. It extended the Rangers' win streak to five games and it took some burden off the heavy-lifting duo of Mike Minor and Lance Lynn, the only Rangers' starters who had...
