  • AL West Notes: McCullers, Brown, Smith

    Headshot for Seth Brown

    Rotation depth has become a big story in Houston, as the Astros have lost Jose Urquidy until roughly the All-Star break due to shoulder discomfort and Luis Garcia for the whole season due to Tommy John surgery.  This makes Lance McCullers Jr.’s recovery from a forearm strain all the more important to the Astros’ plans,…

  • The Rangers' Options At Shortstop

    Headshot for Ezequiel Duran

    The Rangers were dealt one of the more notable early-season injuries. Star shortstop Corey Seager pulled up on a double during Tuesday’s night matchup in Kansas City. He was diagnosed with a Grade 2 strain of his left hamstring. That’ll cost him a month at minimum. Seager had been off to a .359/.469/.538 start. Texas won’t…

  • Josh H. Smith Returns For Rangers

    Texas Rangers outfielder Josh H. Smith (face) is back in the starting lineup on Friday against the Chicago Cubs and right-hander Marcus Stroman. Smith is starting in left field and hitting ninth in the batting order. The 25-year-old outfielder will return to action for the first time since getting hit in the face by a pitch on Monday against the Baltimore Orioles. The left-handed hitter has minimal DFS appeal in the nine-hole for Texas, and he's gone just 1-for-4 two three runs scored, two walks and three strikeouts in his first three games of the season in just his second MLB campaign.

  • Josh H. Smith's CT Scans Are Negative

    Texas Rangers utility player Josh H. Smith (face) had a CT scan done on Monday after the conclusion of the 2-0 loss to the Baltimore Orioles. They came back "clean," according to Kennedi Landry of Smith was hit in the face by a pitch and left the contest in the third inning. There's still more to come on his status moving forward. Over three games this season, the 25-year-old is slashing .250/.625/.250 with three runs and no extra-base hits. Considering Smith's career .198 batting average and .565 OPS over 76 games, he isn't fantasy relevant right now until he starts showing off his potential that made him a second-round draft pick in 2019.

  • Josh H. Smith Hit By Pitch In Face, Leaves Early

    Texas Rangers outfielder Josh H. Smith left his team's Monday night game against the Baltimore Orioles after getting hit in the side of the face by a pitch during the third inning. The HBP was Smith's only plate appearance of the evening and he was quickly replaced by pinch-runner Ezequiel Duran at first base. Smith has picked up one hit and scored three runs in four at-bats thus far in the 2023 season. Look for the Rangers to update his status after the conclusion of Monday's contest.

  • Rangers Notes: Dunning, Ragans, Smith, Foscue

    Headshot for Jacob deGrom

    The Rangers could carry righty Dane Dunning and left-hander Cole Ragans in the big league bullpen to open the season, writes Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News. Both pitchers were squeezed out of the initial rotation mix by Texas’ busy offseason. Jacob deGromAndrew Heaney and Nathan Eovaldi were all brought in to join Martín Pérez and Jon Gray in the…
