    Yep and he was sent down to get more at bats.

    Kozma is a great defensive utility player but no bat.

    I guess you can only add a minor league player to the 40 man if who they are replacing is on the 60 day. Cole Hamels comes to mind but currently on the 10 day.

    They said 8 weeks well that's close to 60 days.

    The Rangers might not be reliant upon personal catchers, but A.J. Griffin's splits are difficult to ignore: Throwing to Jonathan Lucroy: 7.71 ERA in 13 career starts Throwing to Robinson Chirinos: 2.82 ERA in 11 career starts Certainly fantasy owners might want to check the Rangers' battery when their lineup is posted in any future Griffin start.

    To be honest the pitching staff hasn't improved with Lucroy in fact some pitchers are regressing. I wasn't for this trade when it happened and it's beginning to smell like the Garza debacle (Brinson could be looking good in CF about right now). I don't think he will be back if Nicholas keeps improving and can make the jump, besides they'll need that money to resign Yu and have a shot at his friend Shohei Otani...

    I agree. If the Rangers are sellers then Lucroy should get us a few respectable prospects back. Hope he keeps doing well at the plate. Bring back Bobby Wilson until our prospects are ready. With Cheerios hitting decent and great results with pitchers he's fine until something better comes from within.

    I would sell him in July no matter what for the simple reason I wouldn't be trying to resign him. In fact I would see if I could get a good young CFer for him or a starting RHP prospect. (Taveras is probably 3 years away and so is any BP help)...

    BTW I thought they were having Pudge work with the catchers in the minors, what happened with that???
