The Rangers acted swiftly last season when they had a need, acquiring reliever Aroldis Chapman a month before the trade deadline.

They have a need now for a right-handed bat, and this time they beat the deadline by almost three months.

The Rangers reacquired Robbie Grossman on Wednesday morning, bringing back the veteran switch hitter in a deal with the White Sox for hard-throwing Double A reliever Anthony Hoopii-Tuionetoa.

    This Ranger injury plague is now systemic. Bad luck can only explain so much. What are the Rangers doing wrong with their pitchers? Don’t tell me everything they are doing is just fine. I don’t buy that. If I was CY I would call a man named Nolan Ryan and bring him in for consultation to try to explain why so many Ranger pitchers get injured early and often. No strike for an excuse, no COVID for an excuse. What in the hell is going on that is wrong wrong wrong with Ranger pitcher training.

      I would speculate that the extra month of the postseason, and one less month to recover, are part of the problem. The Dunning and Eovaldi injuries seem minor enough, but they will probably linger. The Sborz thing is concerning. Bradford should be back soon.

      While everyone is worried about elbows, shoulder/lat/oblique injuries seem to be on the rise across baseball. I have no clue as to why, though maybe the emphasis on biomechanics is putting new stresses on some body parts.

      I’m guessing the Rangers are dong a deep dive on this.
