What a week. The Texas Rangers got roughed up by the Boston Red Sox at home to start off their homestand but finished up the week with a series sweep against the Los Angeles Angels.
There were tons of names in consideration for the weekly report lists, but I narrowed down the number of players for this week’s list. Find out who made the Rangers Weekly Report in week 6.
Texas Rangers Weekly Report: Who’s Hot
Let’s start off with the man who capped off the Angels series in style. All it took was one pitch to send it out of the park and to get the crowd on their feet as he rounded the bases.
It’s fantastic to see the coaching staff trusting Lowe this season and his hard work pay off. However, I don’t think Emily Jones saw the Rangers’ traditional walk-off Gatorade shower coming.
Kole Calhoun, more like Kole Calboom.
A week ago, everyone was wanting Calhoun to have his contract bought out for not producing. I think he might have read some of your tweets or other posts and wanted to prove all of you wrong.
In the last week, Calhoun had 11 hits, scored 7 runs, hit 4 home runs, and had 8 RBIs. The 34-year-old veteran proved to you this past week he deserves to be a part of this team.
Garcia has also been on fire this past week as well. In this past week, Garcia had seven hits, six RBIs, and two home runs. He and Calhoun had a home run derby against the Angels this past week where both of them hit 2 home runs apiece.
According to Bally Sports Southwest, Garcia has the most RBIs with two outs with 17. He is really developing into a team player and offensive threat. Hope he continues it as the season carries on into late May.
Texas Rangers Weekly Report: Who’s Not Hot
Mr. Leiter is starting to realize that he isn’t at Vanderbilt anymore. Jack Leiter had his worst outing to date against the Tulsa Drillers as he was chased from the game only after 1 2/3 innings.
He gave up 6 runs and 7 hits and has a 4.43 ERA through 6 starts. He needed this to remind himself that he will have days like this when he gets to the major leagues.
Sorry to do this to one of the best pitchers in the league but it has to be done. Syndergaard was chased by the Rangers offense in the 1st inning which is the first time the Rangers have done that this season.
Just a reminder to our opponents, if you do something bad against the Texas Rangers as Snydergaard did, you could end up on the Texas Rangers Weekly Report.
