  2. Tanner Scheppers impresses in final bid for rotation spot

    Mar 21, 2014, 11:30 PM EST

    Los Angeles Dodgers v Texas Rangers

    Tanner Scheppers pitched well Friday afternoon, allowing two runs in six innings of work in the Rangers’ 7-5 victory over the Brewers. He started off in hot water, as the Brewers scored two runs with two doubles and a single, but Scheppers induced an inning-ending double play and never looked back. He struck out six…

    After missing most of last season with a pair of procedures to repair a herniated disk in his back, Rangers left-hander Matt Harrison continues to have some bad luck on the health front. T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports that Harrison is dealing with stiffness in his lower back and will return to Texas to be…

    Houston Astros v Texas Rangers

    The Rangers were in for a shock yesterday when they learned that starter Derek Holland injured his knee in a fall at home, forcing him to undergo arthroscopic surgery to repair the torn cartilage. He is expected to be out until around mid-season. As a result, the Rangers are scrambling to find a substitute starter…

    Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that the Rangers are “making progress” on a deal with free agent right-hander Jerome Williams. Talks have “intensified” since left-hander Derek Holland suffered a left knee injury which will likely keep him sidelined until midseason. Williams was non-tendered by the Angels in December after posting a 4.57 ERA…

    Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News reports some bad news for Rangers fans on Twitter: lefty starter Derek Holland injured his left knee in a fall at home and earlier today underwent arthroscopic surgery to repair torn cartilage. Fraley adds that Holland is likely out until mid-season. Fraley spoke to GM Jon Daniels, who…

  7. Yu Darvish forced from start against Angels by finger blister

    Apr 7, 2013, 10:16 PM EST

    Texas Rangers starting pitcher Yu Darvish pitches against the Los Angeles Angels in Arlington, Texas

    It’s safe to say that part of the reason Yu Darvish didn’t threaten another perfect game on Sunday night is because he wasn’t facing the Astros. The other reason is that the finger blister, that developed during Tuesday’s masterpiece, continued to bother him tonight and forced him from the game after five innings, Darvish opened…

  8. Rangers choose Nick Tepesch as fifth starter

    Mar 27, 2013, 11:19 AM EST

    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. Tepesch is 24 years old and has yet to pitch above Double-A. And in fact he wasn’t even all that good at Double-A,…

    Kyle McClellan on the disabled list due to a ribcage injury. Martin Perez on the disabled list due to a fractured left forearm. Robbie Ross moved to the bullpen recently. Justin Grimm and Randy Wells sent to Triple-A. The Rangers have had a lot of moving parts as they attempted to find a suitable candidate…

    After Martin Perez suffered a forearm fracture when he was hit by a comebacker on Sunday, there was immediate speculation that the Rangers could make a play for free agent right-hander Kyle Lohse. But it’s not going to happen. T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com was given this firm denial from a Rangers’ source today: “We are…

  12. Nate Robertson to sign minor league contract with Rangers

    Nate Robertson Getty

    According to ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick, the Rangers are set to sign left-hander Nate Robertson to a minor league contract. He will get an invite to spring training, where he’s expected to compete for a bullpen job. Robertson, who averaged 31 starts with the Tigers from 2004-2008, hasn’t appeared in the majors since 2010 with the…

  14. Kendrys Morales becomes third player ever to homer from both sides of the plate in same inning

    Jul 30, 2012, 9:30 PM EST

    Kendrys Morales AP

    Kendrys Morales accomplished a very rare feat during the sixth inning tonight against the Rangers, homering from both sides of the plate while driving in six runs. The Angels scored nine runs in the inning. Morales sparked the rally with a two-run homer off starter Roy Oswalt and later added a grand slam off left-hander…

  15. 2012 midseason awards: AL Cy Young

    Jul 5, 2012, 3:53 PM EST

    Chris Sale

    The AL Cy Young balloting turned into a rout last year, as Justin Verlander lapped the field on his way to taking league MVP honors. At the midway point, this year’s Cy is still very much in doubt. Here’s the league top 10 in ERA: Jered Weaver (LAA): 9-1, 2.13 ERA, 68/21 K/BB in 88…

  16. 2012 midseason awards: AL Rookie of the Year

    Jul 4, 2012, 12:56 PM EST

    Mike Trout

    Thanks to a league ruling restoring a certain Angel’s eligibility, the AL Rookie of the Year race is pretty much a batter for second place. But what a battle it might be. The candidates: Mike Trout (LAA): .340/.396/.552, 10 HR, 36 RBI, 22 SB in 241 AB Will Middlebrooks (Bos): .298/.335/.538, 10 HR, 37 RBI,…

  17. Rangers’ rotation takes another hit as Alexi Ogando goes on the disabled list

    Jun 12, 2012, 12:48 PM EST

    Alexi Ogando

    As expected Alexi Ogando‘s groin injury has led him to the disabled list, where he joins Rangers starters Neftali Feliz and Derek Holland, the latter of whom he replaced in the rotation last week. There’s no word yet on who’ll fill in for Ogando, but the Rangers called up left-hander Michael Kirkman from Triple-A and…

  18. Alexi Ogando strains groin after three hitless innings

    Jun 10, 2012, 5:45 PM EST

    Alexi Ogando

    Apparently it’s the new in thing; get a no-hitter going and then exit with a groin strain. Of course, Alexi Ogando today was only three innings along in his outing against the Giants, not six innings like Kevin Millwood on Friday. And Ogando wasn’t going to last all that much longer anyway; the 28-year-old was…

  19. Robbie Ross doesn’t read the Rangers’ memos

    May 11, 2012, 11:34 AM EST

    New York Yankees v Texas Rangers

    Or: great moments in sartorial splendor: Left-hander Robbie Ross initially had no idea that he was wearing a gray Rangers jersey in Game 2 of the doubleheader Thursday night when he started to warm up in the Rangers’ bullpen during the eighth inning. But his fellow relievers, the TV broadcast crews from both teams and…
