Right-hander Andrew Cashner appears to be ready for his first start of the season Saturday after sitting out with soreness in his right biceps.

Rangers are rounding into shape. I'm not confident in our closer situation which is a huge issue, however. This team has some legit arms and firepower. Management has to find an arm to close out games.

Another Dyson appearance, another blown save and loss.

Did anyone else know the Rangers were going to lose the instant they saw Dyson warming up in the bullpen?

A change at closer is mandatory. Killing this team.

The Yankees are 6-0 at home for the first time since 1998, a year in which they won the World Series.

You can even see it physically in his posture and body language on the mound at this point. Shoulders Rounded. Head lower. If they can't send him down .... at least relegate him to early innings where his failure (or occasional success) won't be as pivotal to the team's success or failure.

And the phantom 10-day DL assignment for taking a grounder off his hand removes Dyson from the active roster and spurs Kela's return to the bullpen.

Glad one of the adults is finally making decisions again.

They tried to rationalize that none of the balls were hit out of the infield in his last meltdown inning.

What they failed to also note was that he walked two (2) batters in that inning as well.

A starter can get away with that from time to time ... but not a closer in a save situation.

Speak to the hand

I know it's cliche to say it's still early and it's a long season, but the Rangers sure are starting to look like a bottom feeder this year. Pitching, defense, hitting are all looking pretty bad. It's getting harder to watch them on a daily basis and stay optimistic. Too many guys not hitting their weight.

Maybe the long home stand will get them back on track. We'll see.

Entering today's game, the Red Sox have hit seven home runs as a team -- or as many as Houston's George Springer, Oakland's Khris Davis and Milwaukee's Eric Thames individually.
