Well, that was certainly a week in Texas Rangers Baseball. Chris Woodward got fired midway through the week which was a surprise to me since I figured he would finish out the season. Then, Tony Beasley became the Interim Manager which was awesome to see him get a chance to replace Woodward.

Finally, the sudden firing of Rangers President Jon Daniels was the cherry on top of this crazy filled week in Rangers baseball. Let’s turn our attention to the players and find out who made the lists in this weeks Texas Rangers Weekly Report.

Texas Rangers Weekly Report: Who’s Hot

Josh Jung 

Once again, Josh Jung is making it hard for me not to include him in the Who’s Hot List. He has just been on a tear since joining Triple A. Just check out the Tweet from Rangers Reporter Jeff Wilson on Jung’s stats since joining the Express.

I doubt he will be up with the Rangers this season, but it’s good seeing him rebounding after surgery this year.

Mason Englert

This man deserves to be on the Double-A roster next season if he doesn’t get called up this year. He has been on a tear with the Hickory Crawdads pitching 13 straight shutout innings this season. The Prospect Times said on August 18th that he needs to be on the next plane to Frisco.

Hopefully the Frisco fans get to see him at home before the end of the season arrives. If not, he’s a strong candidate to make the Double-A Roster next season.

Jack Leiter 

I don’t know if it’s him knowing that Kumar Rocker is a Ranger but he has been on a tear since the All Star Break. In his last outing, he threw seven strikeouts and only allowed four hits in four innings. This is the Jack Leiter that fans have been waiting for.

Texas Rangers Weekly Report: Who’s Not Hot

Cole Winn

Cole Winn is just having a bad season and it showed this past week. According to this recent Sports Illustrated article by Matthew Postins, Cole Winn walked 7 batters against El Paso this past week. I’ve seen how good he can pitch in Frisco last season, maybe a new coaching staff next year can turn him around.

Brad Miller

It’s time to shut down Miller Time once and for all. In the past week Miller has had four hits and has struck out four times. Hopefully, he is gone next season and we can get someone with a better bat to replace him in the lineup.
