  • Rangers' Jon Gray: Exits with injury

    Gray was removed from Monday's game against the Orioles in the second inning with left side discomfort.

    Gray's injury does not sound too serious, but it forced him to leave Monday's outing after throwing just 48 pitches. It remains to be seen if he will be available to make what was set to be his second start of the week Saturday.

  • Rangers' Corey Seager: Slots into Monday's lineup

    Seager (lower leg) is in the lineup for Monday's game against the Orioles.

    It was reported Sunday that Seager could land on the injured list, but he is apparently feeling good enough not only to avoid an IL stint but to return to action one day later. Seager will hit second Monday night, but he will serve as the designated hitter rather than start at shortstop like he usually does.

  • Rangers' Ezequiel Duran: Plates three runs

    Duran went 1-for-4 with a three-run double in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Angels.

    After striking out in each of his first three plate appearances of the day, Duran came up clutch when it mattered most. With one out in a tie game in the top of the ninth, Duran stepped to the plate and delivered a bases-clearing two-bagger to help the Rangers take three of four from the Angels. The 23-year-old rookie has started in each of Texas' last five games and looks like he could handle a near-everyday role while Brad Miller (neck) is on the injured list and while Corey Seager (lower leg) is also at risk of being deactivated.

  • Rangers' Luisangel Acuna: Bumped up to Double-A

    The Rangers promoted Acuna from High-A Hickory to Double-A Frisco on Monday, Kennedi Landry of reports.

    Acuna will move up a rung on the minor-league ladder after slashing .317/.417/.483 with eight home runs and a 28-for-34 success rate on stolen-base attempts across 240 plate appearances at Hickory. The 20-year-old has received exposure to both middle-infield spots this season but is still expected to be developed primarily as a shortstop as he makes the move to Frisco.

  • Rangers' Dane Acker: Nearing return from Tommy John

    Acker (elbow) began a rehab assignment July 16 with the Rangers' rookie-level Arizona Complex League affiliate and has given up three runs (one earned) on four hits and one walk while striking out eight in 6.2 innings across three appearances.

    Acker built up to three innings in his most recent ACL outing Friday and could soon be ready to join Single-A Down East. He's been on Down East's injured list since undergoing Tommy John surgery last May.

  • Rangers' Jonathan Hernandez: Notches first save

    Hernandez saved Sunday's 5-2 win against the Angels, striking out one in a 1-2-3 ninth inning.

    Manager Chris Woodward turned to Hernandez for his fifth appearance of the campaign after Texas took the lead in the top of the ninth, and the 26-year-old delivered an easy frame. Texas has featured a revolving door at closer of late and Hernandez may be the new favorite, as he's permitted four baserunners with four strikeouts across five scoreless innings this season.

  • Rangers' Dane Dunning: Delivers quality start

    Dunning didn't factor into the decision during Sunday's 5-2 victory over the Angels, allowing two runs on seven hits and three walks with four strikeouts in six innings.

    Dunning settled down after permitting single runs in each of the first two frames to keep Los Angeles off the board with the help of two double plays despite surrendering 10 baserunners. The quality start is the 27-year-old's first in his last four turns, though he's issued a total of 11 free passes across 18.1 innings over that stretch, and his 3.63 BB/9 ranks second-worst among 63 qualified starters. Dunning carries a 4.30 ERA and 1.43 WHIP into his next start, scheduled for next weekend against the White Sox.

  • Rangers' Josh Smith: Sits against southpaw

    Smith is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Angels.

    The lefty-hitting Smith will retreat to the bench while southpaw Reid Detmers takes the mound for the Angels. Fellow rookie Ezequiel Duran will pick up the start at third base in place of Smith.

  • Rangers' Elier Hernandez: Gets third straight start

    Hernandez will start in left field and bat ninth in Sunday's game against the Angels.

    Hernandez will pick up his third consecutive start Sunday, but he'll likely be moved back into a short-side platoon role if Corey Seager's bruised leg doesn't result in him moving to the injured list. If Seager is cleared to play during the upcoming week, the Rangers wouldn't have the designated-hitter spot available and would likely deploy the trio of Kole Calhoun, Leody Taveras and Adolis Garcia as its main outfielders against right-handed pitching.

  • Rangers' Corey Seager: Out Sunday, IL stint possible

    Seager (lower leg) remains out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Angels.

    He'll be on the bench for the third game in a row with a right leg contusion, and the Rangers aren't yet dismissing the possibility of the three-time All-Star requiring a stint on the injured list, per Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News. Though Grant speculates that Seager could be available as a designated hitter for Monday's game against the Orioles, an IL stint would grow likelier if the 28-year-old remains out of the lineup.

  • Rangers' Meibrys Viloria: Clubs homer in loss

    Viloria went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run, a walk and two total runs scored in Saturday's 9-7 loss to the Angels.

    Jonah Heim served as the designated hitter Saturday, allowing Viloria a rare start behind the dish. The 25-year-old Viloria capitalized on it with his first extra-base hit of the season, a mammoth 421-foot homer to center field that left the bat at 105.2 mph. It was the catcher's second career big-league homer -- his only other one came in 2019 with the Royals. He's still slashing just .174/.345/.304 with five runs scored in nine contests, and a minimal-usage backup role is likely to keep him off the fantasy radar in most formats.

  • Rangers' Marcus Semien: Collects three hits including homer

    Semien went 3-for-5 with a three-run home run in Saturday's 9-7 loss to the Angels.

    Semien continues to fill in at shortstop with Corey Seager (lower leg) battling an injury. In Saturday's contest, Semien was the Rangers' best hitter and the only one to record multiple hits. The 31-year-old infielder has gone 13-for-47 (.277) in his last 11 contests. For the year, he owns a .241/.299/.402 slash line with 14 homers, 49 RBI, 55 runs scored and 18 stolen bases in 99 contests.

  • Rangers' Brett Martin: Can't stop Angels' rally

    Martin (0-7) took the loss and a blown save in Saturday's 9-7 defeat against the Angels. He was charged with two runs on a hit and two walks with one strikeout in two-thirds of an inning.

    Dennis Santana made a mess of things early in the eighth inning, allowing three of the four batters he faced to reach base. Martin wasn't able to settle things down, uncorking a wild pitch that allowed the tying run to score before giving up a two-run double to Luis Rengifo. In his last six outings, Martin has allowed at least one run five times and multiple runs in three of those appearances. He now has a 4.24 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 28:14 K:BB in 34 innings this season. He's picked up three saves and four holds, but he now has three blown saves, and the southpaw could soon be shuffled out of the closer role if he can't get back on track. Per Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News, manager Chris Woodward was saving Jonathan Hernandez for the ninth inning Saturday, which suggests he could be the next man up for closing duties if Martin loses the job.

  • Rangers' Glenn Otto: Takes no-decision Saturday

    Otto allowed four runs on four hits, three walks and two hit batters while striking out five in five innings in a no-decision versus the Angels on Saturday.

    Otto struggled to find the zone, throwing 43 of 73 pitches for strikes. He's gone 0-5 with two no-decisions in his last seven starts, and he's allowed at least three runs in six of those outings. The right-hander owns a 5.50 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 57:38 K:BB in 72 innings across 15 starts this year. Otto is projected for a home start against the White Sox next week.

  • Rangers' Corey Seager: Lengthier absence possible

    Seager (lower leg) could require a stint on the injured list, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.

    Seager exited Thursday's game after fouling a ball off his leg, though the team downplayed the nature of the injury. However, he hasn't been in the lineup since, and on Saturday manager Chris Woodward said that Seager's availability is "hour by hour." Ezequiel Duran and Charlie Culberson have picked up playing time in Seager's absence.
