Well, the Texas Rangers relief bullpen was at it again this week blowing games late. The only good thing that has happened is that Adolis Garcia is the Houston Astros’ kryptonite and helped get some runs on the board against them.

The Rangers took two out of three games against the Oakland Athletics this past weekend. They returned home to start the Silver Boot Series against the Houston Astros this past week and lost 3 of the 4 games. They have to figure something out quickly to get back in the divisional race after this week.

Find out who made the cut in each list in this week’s Texas Rangers Weekly Report.

Texas Rangers Weekly Report: Who’s Hot

Adolis Garcia

Garcia is officially considered a pain in the rear for the Houston Astros. Adolis Garcia had 5 RBIs, 6 hits, and a home run in the past week. It also seems that he is getting more patient at the plate looking for pitches to hit in his zone. This is something to keep an eye on as the season moves along.

Jonah Heim

While Heim didn’t have the best of weeks as he struck out 3 times at the plate, he and his wife are expecting soon. It was announced yesterday that he would be going on the paternity leave list and Sam Huff would take his spot on the roster until he gets back.

His wife had the baby this morning as it was announced that Luxx Blakeley Heim was born at 7:58 am according to Texas Rangers Sports Illustrated Beat Reporter Chris Halicke. Congrats to the Heim family and we will see Heim when he gets back later this season.

Martin Perez

Perez has gone more than 6 innings in his starts this week. In 13 innings, he gave up 1 earned run and stuck out 9 batters. It just stinks that the relief pitchers messed up his outing against the Astros early Thursday afternoon. He’s one of my players that has surprised me so far on this Rangers roster.

Texas Rangers Weekly Report: Who’s Not Hot

Relief bullpen

This pretty much is for the pitchers that come after the starters. Please don’t give the game away late in the game to the opponent. It’s why the Rangers can’t get a winning streak going. One of the many reasons that fans have not shown up at the ballpark this season.

Jack Leiter

Please don’t shoot the author, but Leiter is officially human. He had a bad outing against the NW Arkansas Naturals this past weekend in Frisco. While some of his issues had to due with an inconsistent strike zone from the umpire, he did give up 4 runs in 2 innings that’s why he is on The Who’s Not Hot list this week.
