Finally Healthy

This is the healthiest that the Rangers have been and it couldn’t have come at a better time.

Holland and Perez are back after missing over half of the season. Beltre seems to be turning the corner from his nagging injuries, although you wouldn’t know he was ever injured if you talked to him. Mike Napoli has the knees of an old man, but he has shown some life and provided some thump in the middle of the lineup.

But the Rangers have more reinforcements on the way, which is crazy to think about. Josh Hamilton hit in the cages and looks to make his return in late September. Robinson Chirinos hopes to be back in late September as well, which would add some depth to the catcher position. Those two might not make a huge impact down the stretch, but they both have the ability to change the outcome of the game.

The Rangers were snake bitten at the beginning of the year, with Holland, Perez, Yu Darvish, and Jurickson Profar all going down with injuries. But these Rangers are finally getting healthy, something that can only help the Rangers in their World Series quest.
