Grading the Starting Rotation Performance in April
1 of 7
The starting rotation may be the reason why the Rangers record isn’t worse than it already is. A strong April from the unit has kept the team somewhat afloat.
It was a tough April for the Texas Rangers. The team finished the month at 11-14 and in fourth place in the American League West.
The teams inconsistency and pure offensive ineptitude have ultimately been their downfall to this point. While they haven’t quite showed enough negatives for you to be convinced they’re awful, they also haven’t shown enough to think they’re legitimate contenders just yet.
While the team as a whole has struggled, it has not been due to a lack of quality starting pitching. The rotation had a collective ERA of 3.38 which was third best throughout the month.
With Tyson Ross expected back in the next month or two the rotation has the potential to only get better.
