The final series before the All Star Break. The Rangers host the Detroit Tigers for 3 games. The Tigers have won 6 of their last 9. Detroit is second in the league in home runs. Only one team has fewer stolen bases than the Tigers. Only two teams have a worse bullpen ERA than the Tigers. Detroit leads the season series 7-2. Tigers RP Chuck Seelbach will miss the next 4 days with a strained hamstring which will keep him out of this series.

Cleveland RP Tom Hilgendorf will miss the next 5 months due to shoulder inflammation.

The final game before the All Star Break. And a surprise for the Rangers. Despite finishing second in the voting for LF, Jeff Burroughs will not be the first All Star in Texas Rangers history. That honor will go to Toby Harrah who did not even finish in the top three for SS.

Second in stolen bases. Second in runs against, starters ERA and bullpen ERA. Third in defensive efficiency. They have the best record in the American League. Oakland leads the season series 5-3.

The Rangers stay on the West Coast and pay visit to the California Angels for a three game series. The Angels are second in the league in defensive efficiency and third in the league in runs against and starters ERA. The Rangers are the only team to have scored fewer runs than the Angels and California ranks last in the league in OBP, home runs and bullpen ERA. Last week's sweep gave the Angels a 5-4 lead in the season series.

Today is the MLB trading deadline.

Pittsburgh RP Bruce Kison had elbow ligament reconstruction surgery and will miss the next 14-15 months.

The Rangers continue their road trip as they head to Chicago for 4 games in 3 days against the White Sox. Chicago is 5-3 since the All Star Break and coming off a 3 game sweep of the Royals. The White Sox are third in the league in home runs but that's about the only thing they have done well this year. The Rangers are the only team in the AL with a worse batting average than the White Sox. Only two teams have a worse OBP. Same goes for starters ERA as well as defensive efficiency. Chicago leads the season series 7-2.
