    The Red Sox defeated the Rangers 6-3 last night on a walk-off three-run homer by David Ortiz in the bottom of the ninth inning.

    Alexi Ogando

    Alexi Ogando wasn’t quite Yu Darvish today, but he did surrender just four hits and strike out 10 Astros over 6 1/3 innings in the Rangers’ 4-0 win. Michael Kirkman and Joe Nathan combined to fan five in relief, giving the Rangers their second straight 15-strikeout game. Darvish racked up that many all by himself…

  4. Yu Darvish not quite perfect, but plenty close enough

    Yu Darvish

    It looked like destiny was on his side when Yu Darvish made such quick work of Jason Castro and Carlos Corporan to start the ninth inning Tuesday against Astros. Seconds later, destiny rolled right between his legs into center field. In the end, the pitch count may have gotten to Darvish. Not that he seemed…

    Nick Tepesch

    Injuries to Colby Lewis, Neftali Feliz, and Martin Perez have forced the Rangers to dig deeper into their pitching depth than they’d like and they’ve picked Nick Tepesch as their fifth starter.

    There have been numerous reports downplaying the Rangers’ interest in free agent right-hander Kyle Lohse.

    Michael Kirkman announced Friday underwent his fourth and final treatment for skin cancer this week and will now be able to focus on making an impact out of the pen for the Rangers.

    Conor Jackson

    As part of their cuts Monday, the Rangers released veterans Conor Jackson, Joe Beimel and Mitch Stetter, making the group free agents. Jackson, who finished last season with the Red Sox, was vying to make the Rangers as a right-handed hitting option at first base and in the outfield corners, but he was just 3-for-33…

    Chicago White Sox's first baseman Dunn waits for his pitch during their spring training game against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, at Tempe Diablo Stadium in Tempe

    Let’s not read too much into it just yet, but Adam Dunn is giving some strong early indications that he’s ready to shake off his historically awful 2011 season.
