Career minor leaguer Jake Smolinski got a chance in Texas because of the Rangers’ never-ending injuries and took advantage by hitting .389 in 11 games, but now he’s headed to their crowded disabled list with a bone bruise in his foot.

Smolinski played mostly left field for the Rangers, who now have 14 players on the disabled list. Seriously, go look at their 40-man roster. It’s incredible.

For now he’s being replaced on the roster by journeyman right-hander Jerome Williams, who’s starting tonight’s game after being released by the Astros.

    I realize that there is no crying in baseball, but an exception is made for Rangers fans.

      Don’t worry. We ain’t crying. We are way past that. What you hear is the cackling of the clinically insane. This season is officially NUTS if you are a Ranger fan.
