Cole Hamels leads the Texas Rangers in WAR (1.3) with a 2–4 record and a mid-3s ERA. The Rangers have lost two in a row and were rained out yesterday. They’ll play one game in Seattle before going to Chicago.
It’s fun to watch Joey Gallo and Nomar Mazara swing the bat because of the possibility of the ball going very, very far. But this has been a bad team for the first month-and-a-half and figures to continue to be bad for the remaining 120-something games.
Adrian Beltre went back on the DL yesterday with a hamstring strain and is expected to miss a couple of weeks. He has one home run in 120 at-bats, though his OPS+ is still solid (111).
Chicago White Sox
James Shields has gone at least six innings in his last four starts. And while he hasn’t been shutdown, he’s been good enough to give the Sox some much-needed innings and keep his offense in the game.
He’s given up 13 runs in those four starts, combined, but the White Sox lost all four, unfortunately.
This is a bad team. Chicago became the final team in the league to reach double-digit wins on Sunday against the Cubs. It came back and got blanked by the Pirates in its very next game.
Yoan Moncada, the main piece in the Chris Sale over a year ago now, is leading the team in WAR (1.3). He has six homers and is slugging an even .500 for a 133 OPS+.
