Hyeon-jong Yang clears waivers, is outrighted

Photo by Ron Jenkins/ Rangers pitcher Hyeon-jong Yang has been outrighted Texas Rangers pitcher Hyeon-jong Yang, who was designated for assignment to open up a 40 man roster spot for Willie Calhoun on Wednesday when Calhoun was activated from the 60 day injured list, cleared waivers and has accepted an outright assignment to AAA Round Rock, the team announced. Yang, a 33 year old lefthander, had previously been outrighted earlier this year, so he could have elected free agency rather than accepting the outright assignment, but with two and a half weeks left in the...

Friday Morning Rangers Links

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports The morning after they're put out of their Silver Boot misery. Good morning, LSB. The Texas Rangers will not play the Houston Astros again for another 220 days. Evan Grant says the season series with the Astros has made clear how much of a gap there is between these two franchises right now. Jeff Wilson is also thankful that the Rangers won’t see the Astros again until next season. Kennedy Landry says that Glenn Otto getting beat up last night (again) hopefully serves as a learning moment for the rookie. Landry also writes about Willie...

How embarrassed must Zack Greinke feel, eh? Player of the Game: Man, I don’t know. The Rangers had six hits and gave up a million runs. You’re the Player of the Game, champ. Congratulations. Up Next: There’s no rest for the wearied Rangers as they welcome the AL Central leading White Sox to Arlington to begin a weekend series.

Thoughts on a 7-2 Rangers loss

Thoughts on a 7-2 Rangers loss

Photo by Richard Rodriguez/ Astros 7, Rangers 2 Astros 7, Rangers 2 That was rough. Stop me if you’ve heard this before, but Kohei Arihara got knocked around. Arihara, in his third outing since being activated from the injured list, looked a lot like the pitcher who got hammered in April and May of this year, before he landed on the i.l. Four innings pitched, six runs, eight hits, two home runs allowed, just six swinging strikes. Arihara was pulled in the top of the fifth, having given up a single, an HBP, and a double, retiring no one in the inning. The numbers...

54-91 - Blowout pendulum swings back in Houston’s favor as Rangers fall 7-2

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports This one, like many, was unpleasant The Texas Rangers mustered a couple of runs whilst the Houston Astros scored seven runs. It wasn’t quite 15-1 but the Rangers never really looked like they were threatening to come away with a victory tonight at any point. The final Silver Boot series of the season has been a strange one with Texas being outscored 22-3 in the two losses, while outpacing Houston 8-1 in their win last night. If things decide to stick to this bizarre script, I guess the Rangers will win by a final score of like 27-1 in...

Thoughts on an 8-1 Rangers win

Photo by Ron Jenkins/ Rangers 8, Astros 1 Rangers 8, Astros 1 Momentum is the next day’s starting pitcher. So while things seemed bleak after the 15-1 stomping the Rangers suffered on Monday, the next day’s starting pitcher was Jordan Lyles, so we knew things would be fine on Tuesday. Lyles performed remarkably against the Astros, throwing seven shutout innings, allowing just three hits and a walk while striking out seven. It was easily his best outing as a Ranger. In fact, using Game Score — an admittedly imperfect device, but nonetheless an objective measure...

54-90 - Rangers return the favor by blasting Astros 8-1

Photo by Ron Jenkins/ What a difference a day makes The Texas Rangers scored eight runs and the Houston Astros scored just one run. There’s nothing in the world quite like baseball where the Rangers could look like one of the worst examples of a team that plays this sport one night — with a 15-1 loss to Houston on Monday — and then come back 24 hours later and easily win against the team that had just slaughtered them. Then again, they say momentum in baseball is only as good as your next day’s starter and that next day’s starter tonight for Texas was Jordan...
