Cole Hamels struck out seven across seven shutout frames in Tuesday's 7-1 victory over the Yankees.

All six base knocks were singles, and Hamels issued only one walk. The veteran left-hander has been on some kind of roll, dropping his ERA from 3.39 to 2.60 over his last five starts. Hamels now sports a nifty 102/38 K/BB ratio over 103 2/3 innings on the season. He'll go up against the Twins in each of his next two outings.

Adrian Beltre went 3-for-5 with homer and three RBI in Tuesday's win over the Yankees.

Beltre got the scoring going with a two-run shot in the first inning. No one scored again until the eighth inning, but it was Beltre who drove in the next tally with a single. The longball was his first since June 3. Beltre has a seven-game hitting streak going.

Rangers manager Jeff Bannister said Tuesday that Yu Darvish (shoulder, neck) isn't expected to rejoin the team's rotation before the All-Star break.

Darvish just returned to throwing off of a mound on Sunday and is on tap for a simulated game on Wednesday. From there, he'd likely need a few minor league rehab starts before returning to the big league club. If all goes well, he could rejoin the rotation coming out of the All-Star break.

Nomar Mazara is not in Tuesday's lineup versus the Yankees.

He'll sit against southpaw CC Sabathia. Shin-Soo Choo will start in right field while Ryan Rua plays left.

Mitch Moreland is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Yankees.

As promised, Jurickson Profar is making the start at first base. Prince Fielder will serve as the designated hitter.

Chi Chi Gonzalez gave up five runs on 10 hits and two walks over five frames but escaped with a no-decision in Monday's 9-6 win over the Yankees.

He needed 87 pitches to cover the five innings, striking out just two batters. Gonzalez was up for a start with the Rangers dealing with multiple injuries to their rotation. He could get another shot this weekend in Minnesota but can be ignored for fantasy purposes.

Sam Dyson converted his 16th save of the season with a scoreless ninth inning in Monday's win over the Yankees.

The Rangers plated four runs in the top of the ninth inning after a rain delay of three hours and 35 minutes, resulting in Dyson netting a save around 2:45 am. He's nailed down 16-of-17 save chances this season.

Adrian Beltre drove in the tying and go-ahead run in the top of the ninth inning of Monday's win over the Yankees.

There was a three hour and thirty-five minute rain delay in the top of the frame and when they resumed play Kirby Yates took over for Aroldis Chapman. He allowed two hits and hit three batters, with Beltre pushing two runs across with a single and Elvis Andrus driving in two more to cushion the lead.

Rangers optioned LHP Alex Claudio to Triple-A Round Rock.

The move cleared a spot for Monday's starter, Chi Chi Gonzalez. Claudio has a 4.50 ERA and 11/4 K/BB ratio over 18 innings this season and should get another chance soon.
Jun 27 - 7:51 PM

Rangers recalled RHP Chi Chi Gonzalez from Triple-A Round Rock.

Rodriguez was called up to make his major-league season debut Monday against the Yankees. The 24-year-old had a 5.04 ERA across 14 starts in Triple-A this season and isn't a recommended fantasy option.
Jun 27 - 7:50 PM

Rangers manager Jeff Banister said that Jurickson Profar will likely play first base Tuesday against Yankees left-hander CC Sabathia.

Profar was out of the lineup Monday for the eighth time in the past 11 games. Banister intends to have him play "three or four" times per week, but he clarified that this estimate doesn't necessarily include starts. Profar continues to produce when he gets the opportunity, but the lack of playing time makes it difficult to rely on him in mixed fantasy leagues right now.

Yu Darvish (shoulder, neck) will throw a simulated game on Wednesday.

Darvish threw all of his pitches during a 30-pitch bullpen session on Sunday. It was Darvish's first time on the mound since injuring his neck earlier this month. He'll throw about three innings on Wednesday. The right-hander landed on the disabled list in just his third game back from Tommy John surgery.

Martin Perez held the Red Sox to one run over six innings Sunday in the Rangers' 6-2 win.

Texas had a three-run lead after the first inning and Perez went into cruise control from there, scattering six hits and two walks across six solid frames. The one run he gave up came on a Bryce Brentz solo shot in the top of the sixth. Perez will carry a 7-4 record and 3.44 ERA into his next start on the road against the Twins.

A.J. Griffin gave up two runs on four hits and made it through only 4 1/3 innings for a no-decision on Saturday, striking out six and walking one in the Rangers' 10-3 victory over the Red Sox.

Griffin came off the disabled list today after missing six weeks with shoulder stiffness. That is part of the reason he was lifted early in this game, although he had already thrown 91 pitches. He has been very effective through seven starts. Now with a 3.08 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in 38 innings, Griffin will square off with the Yankees on Thursday.

Ian Desmond connected for his 13th homer on Saturday as his resurgent season rolls on.

Desmond added a single to finish 2-for-5 on the night. Now sporting a .322/.371/.527 slash line with 53 runs, 49 RBI and 13 stolen bases, Desmond is on pace to set career highs in every category across the board. Following last year's terrible results, he is perhaps the biggest draft day steal of the season thus far.
