Not so fast: Darvish's return uncertain

When Rangers SP Yu Darvish was placed on the DL last week, the team sounded pretty sure that he'd come back on August 25, when eligible. Now, they're not nearly as sure when their ace will return. Manager Ron Washington said Tuesday that he's "not really thinking about the 25th" for Darvish, who hasn't thrown since August 9. Washington added: "I don...

Ron Washington: ‘I’m backing off’ idea of Yu Darvish returning on August 25

Apparently, RHP Yu Darvish won’t miss just the minimum two weeks required by his recent placement on the DL with elbow inflammation. Darvish, who did not travel with the club to Miami, has not thrown in the week since he complained of the elbow soreness and manager Ron Washington on Tuesday said he was “backing off” his announced intent for the pitcher to be activated next week.

Texas Rangers stars Beltre, Darvish, clear waivers, can be traded

Beltre and Darvish are unlikely to move Credit: AP/LM Otero The Texas Rangers are the worst team in baseball and their tragic number (that being their losses combined with wins by playoff-spot-holding teams) is a mere 14.  That means by the end of the week, they might be mathematically eliminated.  The Rangers were curiously quite at the trade deadline, with talented trade pieces...

Tepesch continues to cement Rangers rotation status

ARLINGTON, Texas - There looks to be one less spot available in the open auditions for the 2015 Texas Rangers rotation. Nick Tepesch's pitching has seen to that. Tepesch put together his fourth-consecutive solid start and kept the Rangers around long enough for them to rally for a 3-2 walkoff victory over the Los Angeles Angels. The right-hander pitched seven innings of two-run...

Miss Texas’ First Pitch At Rangers Game Just Missed The Plate (Video)

When Monique Evans stepped onto the field Friday night to throw out the ceremonial first pitch before the Texas Rangers-Los Angeles Angels game, it could have gone one of two ways. Evans, this year’s reigning “Miss Texas,” could have channeled her inner Chrissy Teigen and fired a strike to home plate, or she could have pulled a 50 Cent and missed the plate by about a mile....

WATCH: Miss Texas throws out very interesting first pitch

It’s possible that even 50 Cent has the 2014 “Miss Texas” beat in terms of quality ceremonial first pitches.  In the Lone Star State, known for flame throwing pitchers (Nolan Ryan, Roger Clemens, Clayton Kershaw, Kerry Wood, and Josh Beckett to name a few), Monique Evans, the wearer of the crown and state’s representative for the Miss America pageant, is not exactly cut...

J.P. Arencibia became the third (!!!!!) position player to take the hill for the Texas Rangers this year, following in the footsteps of Mitch Moreland fellow backstop Chris Gimenez. And boy, it was bizarre. . It’s worth noting that Gimenez was designated for assignment by the Rangers and assigned to AAA, while Moreland is on the 60-day DL following ankle surgery. That’s not...
