Carlos Gomez (back) remained out of the Rangers' lineup Wednesday.

He's missed two straight starts with a sore back. Gomez is considered day-to-day. Delino DeShields is again in center field.

Adrian Beltre went 2-for-4 with a go-ahead homer off Cody Allen in the top of the ninth as the Rangers edged the Indians 2-1 on Tuesday.

Beltre has homered in three straight games after totaling two homers in his first 21 games back from the disabled list. Those who held on to him for the duration of his injuries have been well rewarded thus far.

Tyson Ross held the Indians to one run and two hits in six innings in a no-decision Tuesday.

Ross's middle start was ugly, but he's been effective in two of his other three outings for the Rangers. Unfortunately, the Jays hit him so hard that his ERA stands at 6.14. We don't recommend him outside of AL-only leagues right now.
Jun 27 - 10:24 PM

Matt Bush protected a one-run lead for his 10th save Tuesday against the Indians.

With his job very much on the line, Bush has come out and protected one-run leads against the Yankees and now Cleveland the last three days. He faced the heart of the order in this one, too, giving up only a single to Michael Brantley while retiring Francisco Lindor, Edwin Encarnacion and Jose Ramirez. Things are looking up for his owners.

Rougned Odor went 0-for-3 on Tuesday and is in a 3-for-37 slump with no RBI and 11 strikeouts in his last nine games.

Odor finally seemed to have righted the ship earlier this month, hitting .313/.340/.750 with five homers in a 12-game span. Now he's basically right back where he started. If he doesn't play better over the rest of the week, the Rangers should consider sending him down for a Triple-A refresher through the All-Star break. It worked for Mike Zunino.

Martin Perez (thumb) could rejoin the Rangers' rotation on July 3 versus the Red Sox.

Perez will throw a bullpen session Tuesday. The left-hander is working his way back from a fractured right thumb, an injury he sustained when he slammed his hand into a hotel door.
Jun 27 - 5:29 PM

Carlos Gomez is not in Tuesday's lineup because of a sore back.

It doesn't sound like a big deal, but the Rangers figured it would be best to give him a little rest. Delino DeShields is in center field.
Jun 27 - 5:10 PM

Andrew Cashner (oblique) will rejoin the Rangers' rotation Thursday in Cleveland.

The club will then start Austin Bibens-Dirkx or Nick Martinez on Friday. Cashner will have missed two weeks of action with a strained left oblique. He'll return to a 3.50 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 33/31 K/BB ratio across 69 1/3 innings.
Jun 27 - 5:01 PM

Carlos Gomez is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Indians.

The hot-hitting outfielder will get a breather. Delino DeShields will make the start in center field and bat leadoff. Also of note, Rougned Odor has been dropped to seventh in the lineup.
Jun 27 - 2:48 PM

Jonathan Lucroy is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Indians.

He'll take a seat against right-hander Mike Clevinger. Robinson Chirinos will start behind the plate and catch Tyson Ross.
Jun 27 - 2:41 PM

Elvis Andrus went 3-for-4 with a three-run homer, a solo homer, three runs scored and four RBI in Monday's 15-9 loss to the Indians.

The Rangers were already leading 4-1 when Andrus launched a three-run homer off Carlos Carrasco in the second inning. He would go on to smack a solo shot in the fourth inning to boost the lead to 9-2, a lead which the Rangers somehow managed to blow over the next few innings. The home runs continued what has been a superb overall campaign for the 28-year-old shortstop, who is hitting to a .299/.348/.463 triple-slash with nine homers, 45 RBI, 46 runs scored and 18 stolen bases in 298 at-bats. The nine homers are a career high.
Jun 26 - 11:00 PM

Adrian Beltre went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run and a double in Monday's loss to the Indians.

Following an RBI double by Nomar Mazara to put runners on second and third in the first inning, Beltre connected off Carlos Carrasco for a three-run homer. He has gone yard in back-to-back contests and has now picked up seven extra-base hits in his last eight games, including four homers. In 23 games since being activated from the disabled list, the veteran third baseman is hitting .294/.367/.529 with four homers and 21 RBI.
Jun 26 - 10:54 PM

Making his return from the disabled list, Cole Hamels surrendered seven runs on eight hits over 4 1/3 innings while taking a no-decision in Monday's 15-9 loss to the Indians.

Hamels had been on the shelf since early May with a right oblique strain. His return to the mound started out in tenuous enough fashion, as the southpaw loaded the bases with nobody out in the first inning. He managed to Houdini his way out of that mess allowing just one run. He would surrender one more in the third inning before an incredibly shaky four-run fifth (including one run walked in with the bases loaded) finally did him in. Hamels finished up his evening's work having struck out one and walked four. He threw 92 pitches in the outing (48 for strikes). A road start against the White Sox shows next on his schedule as he looks to knock off the rust and work his way back into the flow of the season.
Jun 26 - 10:51 PM

Nomar Mazara (forearm) has returned to the Rangers' starting lineup Monday versus the Indians.

Mazara sat out Saturday and Sunday with a bruised right forearm from being hit by a pitch from Aroldis Chapman, but fortunately it's not a long-term issue. He'll bat third in his return.
Jun 26 - 3:44 PM

Joey Gallo (hamstring) has returned to the Rangers' starting lineup Monday against the Indians.

Gallo missed back-to-back starts over the weekend with hamstring soreness, but he's apparently feeling better. He'll bat ninth against Carlos Carrasco.
