Texas Rangers' second-half preview: Season derailed by injury
Sports Illustrated's Tom Verducci previews the second half of the MLB season for the Texas Rangers.
Standing: Last place in AL West
Batting average: Adrian Beltre, .337
Home Runs: Adrian Beltre, 13
ERA: Yu Darvish, 2.97
The Rangers fell to last place in the AL West after injuries forced them to use 50 players before the All-Star break, including 30 pitchers. Injuries to Matt Harrison, Derek Holland, Martin Perez, Alexi Ogando, Prince Fielder and Jurickson Profar have been especially damaging.
Yu Darvish (2.97 ERA) and Adrian Beltre (batting .337) are still among the best in baseball at their positions, but facing a lost season the Rangers will look to trade off spare parts. Closer Joakim Soria (2.67 ERA, 16 saves) is a prime candidate to be moved.
