2021 Year in Review: Spencer Patton

Photo by Ron Jenkins/ Taking a look at Spencer Patton’s 2021 season With the 2021 season having come to a close, we are looking back at the year that was for members of the Texas Rangers. Today we are looking at righthanded reliever Spencer Patton. Two of the worst seasons in the history of the Texas Rangers included Spencer Patton giving the Rangers some decent innings out of the bullpen. One of those was 2021, of course. 2021 sucked. We all know that. The other was 2014. 2014 was also terrible, though in something of a different way. 2021 was supposed to be...

Monday Morning Texas Rangers Update

Photo by Mitchell Layton/ Come for the baseball news, stay for probably not that Good morning. ESPN’s David Schoenfield tries to get us with a fact about the Texas Rangers that we maybe didn’t know but it is that they are bad at pitching and buddy, we’ve lived it. Who’s the next Hall of Famer for each team? Matt Snyder predicts them and it’s an easy call for the Rangers. The MLB Pipeline fellas look back at their 2020 predictions for which prospects were potential breakout stars from each farm system. And, in news that could impact the Rangers at the top of...

Today we are looking at righthanded reliever Josh Sborz. Josh Sborz was one of the myriad of former Dodgers that have come through Arlington the last year or two. I think of him as a waiver claim, but he was not, in fact, a waiver claim — he was, rather, acquired from the Dodgers right before spring training 2021 started in exchange for teenage righthanded pitcher Jhan...

Adding a couple of star caliber players to your team is going to, of course, result in a shot in the arm, and ZiPS projects both Seager and Semien to be 4-5 win players in 2022. ZiPS is also bullish about Nathaniel Lowe and Josh Jung, seeing both as major league starting caliber players in 2022, while Dane Dunning and Jonathan Gray both profile...

Today we are looking at infielder Yonny Hernandez. Yonny Hernandez is something of a throwback. He’s a throwback to the days when your middle infielders were small, fast, light hitting guys who played slick defense and bunted and hit behind runners and all that. Especially the “small” part. Both B-R and the Rangers website have Yonny listed at 5’9”, 140 lbs. One...
