The Rangers have lost four in a row going into this weekend’s series with the Houston Astros, which begins on Friday night.
Houston beat Texas in three out of four back in the first series of the season in Arlington. Now, the Rangers go to Houston minus their starting shortstop.
Elvis Andrus was hit on the right elbow with a 97 mile-per-hour fastball earlier this week and will be out 6-8 weeks with a broken bone that won’t require surgery.
Andrus was leading the team with a .327 batting average, .426 on-base percentage and .500 slugging percentage.
Houston dropped its final two games in Minneapolis this week but now it’s heading back home. The Astros are 5–1 so far at Minute Maid Park and have their starting first baseman coming back.
Yuli Gurriel was last in the news when he made a racist gesture at Yu Darvish in the World Series. Now he’s ready to come off the Disabled List and make his season debut, reclaiming his starting spot at first base.
The Astros have looked just fine without him. The offense picked up right where it left off last season and the pitching has been even better. This is your American League favorite right now.
