Rougned Odor hit a grand slam off Matt Albers to help propel the Rangers to an 8-6 win over the Mariners on Wednesday.

Odor's 30th homer of the year might have been his biggest, even if it did come in the fourth inning. He's just the 18th player in major league history to amass two 30-homer seasons by age 23. The only other middle infielder to do it was Alex Rodriguez.

Alex Claudio went two innings for his 10th save Wednesday against the Mariners.

Claudio took over in an 8-6 game in the eighth after Matt Bush gave up back-to-back doubles and retired six of the seven batters he faced. He has three saves in 10 days after going nearly three weeks without one.
Sep 21 - 1:55 AM

Carlos Gomez (ankle) doubled as a pinch-hitter in the eighth inning of Tuesday's game against the Mariners.

It was the first action of any kind for Gomez since he suffered a bad ankle sprain 10 days ago. He immediately got pulled for a pinch-runner, which is a good indication that the injury isn't quite fully healed. We'll see if he is in the Rangers' starting lineup on Wednesday.
Sep 20 - 8:46 AM

Delino DeShields finished 2-for-4 with a run scored and a stolen base in Tuesday's road win against the Mariners.

The stolen base was the first successful theft since Sept. 2 after being nabbed on his previous three attempts. DeShields doesn't hit for much power or a high average, so his speed is the most valuable asset. If he isn't swiping bags he isn't worth keeping around in most mixed leagues.
Sep 20 - 2:23 AM

Alex Claudio worked a perfect ninth inning in Tuesday's game at Seattle for his ninth save of the season.

The southpaw has bounced back nicely after blowing a pair of save chances from Sept. 1-9. Despite a bit of a rocky road lately, he remains the ninth-inning pitcher of choice for manager Jeff Banister.
Sep 20 - 2:20 AM

Martin Perez allowed one earned run, four hits and one walk with four strikeouts over 6 1/3 innings in a no-decision Tuesday in Seattle.

Perez threw 60 of his 98 pitches for strikes in the quality start, his fourth over the past six outings. He atoned for a loss in his last start Sept. 13 against the Mariners. He'll look to get back on track in Sunday's series finale in Oakland opposite Jharel Cotton. He is 1-1 with a 4.00 ERA in two starts against the A's this season.
Sep 20 - 2:16 AM

Carlos Gomez (ankle) remains sidelined Tuesday.

Gomez has been out for the last 10 days because of a bad ankle sprain and it's unclear when he might be able to return. Delino DeShields will continue to get the majority of the playing time in center field for Texas.
Sep 19 - 6:10 PM

Rangers manager Jeff Banister said Sunday that the club has considered giving Yohander Mendez a start before the end of the season.

But it won't happen while the Rangers are still technically in the Wild Card race. They are five games back, so obviously their thinking could change any day now. The young lefty earned a call-up this month after posting a 3.79 ERA and 124/43 K/BB ratio over 137 2/3 innings this season in Double-A. He's considered the Rangers top pitching prospect.
Sep 18 - 12:02 PM

Adrian Beltre went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBI on Sunday, leading the Rangers to a 4-2 victory over the Angels.

Beltre delivered a two-run double off of Garrett Richards in the first inning, giving the Rangers an early lead which they wouldn't relinquish. The veteran third baseman is enjoying another terrific season, slashing .310/.384/.539 with 16 homers and 69 RBI.
Sep 17 - 7:13 PM

Joey Gallo crushed his 38th home run of the season as the Rangers topped the Angels on Sunday in Los Angeles.

His solo shot in the second inning increased the Rangers' early lead to 3-0 and proved to be the difference in the ballgame. Gallo finished the day 1-for-4 with a pair of strikeouts. He's now hitting .211/.337/.546 with the aforementioned 38 bombs and 75 RBI.
Sep 17 - 7:11 PM

Jake Diekman slammed the door on the Angels on Sunday, allowing just one walk over 1 2/3 innings of work.

Diekman got the final five outs to protect a two-run lead against the Angels, earning his first save of the season in the process. The 30-year-old southpaw owns a 3.68 ERA and 0.95 WHIP across his 7 1/3 innings with the Rangers.
Sep 17 - 7:09 PM

Miguel Gonzalez pitched well in Sunday's win over the Angels, allowing just one run on two hits over his five frames.

Gonzalez didn't have pinpoint command in this one though, issuing five free passes while striking out two. The only blemish on his afternoon was a Mike Trout sacrifice fly in the fifth inning. He'll look to further improve upon his 4.75 ERA and 1.47 WHIP when he does battle against the Athletics in Oakland on Saturday.
Sep 17 - 7:09 PM

Nomar Mazara (quad) is back in the Rangers' lineup Sunday.

Mazara has been in and out of the lineup for the last several days due to a tight left quad, but he will give it a go Sunday. He's in left field, as Willie Calhoun is on the bench for the second time in the last three games (all against righties).
Sep 17 - 1:12 PM

Joey Gallo finished 1-for-2 with a double and a walk in Saturday's road loss against the Angels.

Gallo has managed just one RBI over his past eight games, as he appears to have hit a bit of a wall in his first full season in the majors. Still, 2017 has been a success since he has 37 homers and 74 RBI across 408 at-bats.
Sep 17 - 1:33 AM

Cole Hamels allowed just two earned runs, four hits and four walks over seven innings in Saturday's loss on the road against the Angels.

Hamels posted a quality start, but he was on the short end of a 2-0 score with his counterpart Parker Bridwell outshining him. After starting out 9-1 with a 3.42 ERA through Aug. 21, he is 1-3 with a 5.97 ERA over his past five outings. The veteran left-hander is limping to the finish line. He'll try to secure his 11th victory in his next scheduled outing Thursday in Seattle.
