  1. Starting against a leftie today (8th spot). Good chance for him to show he can do something, given it's at the Rockies and a LHP who isn't exactly top tier.
  2. So much for the chance against lefties. Benched today.
  3. Ouch. Carlos Gomez departed Tuesday's game against the White Sox after jamming his left shoulder while sliding into third base following a triple. The Rangers don't think the injury is serious, so it sounds like his exit was precautionary. However, Gomez will be re-evaluated on Wednesday and we should know more about his status then. The fiery outfielder is having a nice spring so far, going 11-for-32 at the plate with three home runs.
  4. Start or sit home to Toronto later?
  5. He's only been the minors since about Mid-2015 for his current stint. He's hasn't been an MLB system for 7 YEARS. Basically all of his prime years... When he signed, he was a starter..at the end the WSox were going to turn him into RP.. Until the Brewers claimed him on waviers and tried him back out as a starter. So we don't have a ton of track record to go off of. But, yes he's been getting healthy K% for the one year he's been around.. I've never really looked too much into his Indy League/Itainlan league/Venezuelan Winter League numbers after he was released by the Mets back in 2008. Safe to assume he's a complete different pitcher than he was when the Mets released him 8 years ago. Not sure it' safe to assume anything with the Mets. In fact, this makes me more positive that he is legit!
  6. Oh well, better a great start on the bench than a terrible one in the lineup...
  7. Can anyone talk me into not leaving this guy on the bench for today's game vs the Cubs?
  8. I just looked on Fangraphs and the Twin with the highest K% and lowest BB% is Byron Buxton. They might as well go with him as closer.
