ARLINGTON — Chris Woodward, hired after the 2018 season and then thrust into the middle of an organizational rebuild, was fired Monday afternoon as Rangers manager amid the club’s sixth consecutive losing season.
Third-base coach Tony Beasley was named interim manager with the Rangers at 51-63 and in third place in the top-heavy American League West, 23 games behind division-leading Houston.
I don’t see this team contending next year. The young pitchers that they needed to take a step forward haven’t done so. Another losing season I’m afraid.
