Texas Rangers update for Friday, April 30
Good morning, LSB.
The Rangers took the first of four games against the Red Sox last night, with proud papa Jose Trevino blasting the big hit in a 4-1 win.
Joey Gallo hit his first double of 2021 last night, and Evan Grant asked Chris Woodward about the Rangers’ disappearing doubles so far this season.
Jeff Wilson has some words on Gallo as well, touching on his mix of high Ks and high BBs.
Wilson also writes about Kyle Gibson, whose ERA is now one of the AL’s best after ballooning into the triple digits on Opening Day.
Levi Weaver has five surprising stats from the Rangers first 25 games of 2021.
Grant says the Rangers think they’ve dealt with that whole pitch-tipping “thing” with Kohei Arihara.
Brock Holt and fam have started an initiative to raise funds for childhood cancer. Good dude.
MLB dot com lists the best players through the first month of the season and hey-o, the Rangers have a name on the list.
That’s all for this morning. Happy Friday.
