Wednesday Morning Rangers Strikes

Judging by my Twitter timeline, the Rangers lost another fan favorite yesterday when Robbie Ross Jr. was traded to Boston.

  • T.R. Sullivan has his write-up over on the Texas Rangers site detailing the trade of Ross to Boston in exchange for Anthony Ranaudo.
  • Another Texas minor leaguer has been suspended for amphetamine use.
  • Matt Harrison hopes to join Colby Lewis on the list of pitchers that made it back to the mound after untested procedures -- for baseball players -- left their careers in doubt.
  • Daniel Bard, who Texas signed for the 2014 season on a minor league deal, is making another comeback attempt, this time with the Chicago Cubs.
  • Evan Grant is back from vacation. He's got some thoughts on the Yovani Gallardo trade as well as Mitch Moreland, Rob Manfred, Clayton Kershaw, and "DeflateGate".
