    2011 World Series Game 6 - Texas Rangers v St Louis Cardinals

    Mike Napoli played a game-and-a-half on the gruesome-looking ankle injury he suffered during the World Series, but four months later manager Ron Washington describes him as being “60-70 percent” recovered as Rangers camp begins.

    2011 World Series Game 6 - Texas Rangers v St Louis Cardinals

    Over the weekend Mike Napoli and the Rangers avoided arbitration with a one-year, $9.4 million deal, but the ankle injury he suffered in Game 6 of the World Series continues to bother the catcher and figures to limit him at the beginning of spring training. “The fact he’s still feeling it a few months later…

  3. The case of the Texas Rangers and the incredibly shrinking strikeout rates

    Adrian Beltre, Mike Napoli

    One of things that really stood out when I was doing projections over the last month was how the 2011 Rangers had a bunch of guys that didn’t strike out anywhere near as much as usual. In fact, seven of their nine veterans with at least 400 plate appearances last season set new career-lows when…

    Footage of Yorvit Torrealba‘s attack on home plate umpire Dario Rivero, Jr. in the Venezuelan Winter League spread like wildfire last night, so naturally it didn’t take long for word to reach the Rangers.

  7. Yorvit Torrealba hits umpire during Venezuelan Winter League game

    Dec 23, 2011, 6:42 PM EDT

    Texas Rangers v Oakland Athletics

    Rangers catcher Yorvit Torrealba isn’t exactly in the “Christmas spirit.” After striking out while playing with Leones del Caracas in the Venezuelan Winter League earlier today, the veteran backstop blew off some steam by attacking home plate umpire Dario Rivero, Jr. It’s unclear what sort of penalty he’ll pay in the VWL, but Licey manager Jose…

  8. Will the Rangers try to keep up with the Angels?

    Jon Daniels

    The Rangers can come close to matching their AL West rivals; all they’d need to do is commit $150 million-$200 million to free agent Prince Fielder and then another $80 million-$100 million in the form of a posting fee and a contract for Yu Darvish. What’s the big deal? As things stand now, the Rangers are currently…

Sullivan of MLB.com reports that the Rangers are sticking with Matt Treanor as their backup.

    Torrealba dropping popup

    According to Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram the Rangers have signed catcher Yorvit Torrealba to a two-year, $6.25 million contract, which almost surely means Bengie Molina won’t be back in Texas. Torrealba is five years younger than Molina and represents an upgrade offensively. Over the past two seasons Torrealba has hit .279 with…

  11. Yorvit Torrealba opts out of contract and hits open market

    Torrealba dropping popup

    Yorvit Torrealba joined the free agent mix by declining his $3.5 million mutual option for 2011, which is somewhat surprising given that he was able to get just a one-year, $1.25 million deal as a free agent last offseason and didn’t have a particularly special year for the Padres. Torrealba played well in a part-time…
