The Texas Rangers started off the season well back in April and half a decent first half of May. Then things started falling apart around mid to late May and until finally in mid-September when things finally started to fall back into place.

Right now the Texas Rangers are the hottest team in the majors by winning 9 of their last 10 and it appears things are not slowing down. They have seen a boost from several of the young players such as Jake Smolinski, Nick Martinez, and Nick Tepesch. Also, they have continued to see success from Colby Lewis in the second half of the season.
Another big boost recently has been the return of Derek Holland. It was unknown how well Holland would do after missing most of the season due to his knee injury, but he’s been able to bounce back very well and appears to just as good as he’s ever been.
There are 5 games left in the season and no dreams of playoffs this season, but at least the Rangers are finally playing good baseball. The injury bug has continued to strike with Alex Rios being lost for the last week of the season and it appears that there are already questions about Jurickson Profar being ready in time for spring training.
At least the Texas Rangers seem to be trying to end the season on a high note and leaving fans some hope for next season. The main hope is that everyone is able to come back healthy, ready to play and that they are able to finally get rid of the dreaded injury bug.
