MLB released game times for every team’s 2023 schedule, barring changes for national television or those pesky rainouts.

The Rangers will play most weekday home games at 7:05 p.m. and most home Sunday games at 1:35 p.m. It’s a little more complicated for Saturday games, which will start at 3:05 p.m. from April to August (with a few exceptions) but will start at 6:05 p.m. (with a few exceptions) in other months.

The Rangers will play seven 1:05 p.m. games. Check here for all times.

Great. So when to individual tickets to on sale?

The answer is 10 a.m. March 3 for all home games except Opening Day. As always, the Rangers will reveal a chance for individuals to buy Opening Day tickets at a later date. Of course, if you really want Opening Day seats, they are available in season ticket packages.

Call 972-RANGERS or visit texasrangers.com/seasons for those packages.

The Rangers open the season March 30 at Globe Life Field against Philadelphia.

More rankings

A couple more outlets have released their top 100 prospects lists, and the Rangers were well-represented.

MLB Pipeline was the most generous, listing six Rangers in the top 100 — Josh Jung (34), Evan Carter (41), Owen White (66), Luisangel Acuna (71), Jack Leiter (78) and Brock Porter (94).

The latest was from The Athletic, as Keith Law determined his top 100. Four Rangers were listed, though none in the top 50. Carter was the top Rangers prospect at No. 53, followed by Jung (56), White (70) and Leiter (92).

Like Baseball America, Law was hung up on Jung’s change in approach last season, becoming a swing-first player. Jung talked about that over the weekend, admitting that isn’t who he is or who he will be.

Law and MLB listed Leiter in their top 100, unlike Baseball America. That slight didn’t sit well with the Rangers, who don’t understand how an outlet can completely change its tune on a consensus top-three player in the 2021 MLB Draft.

The next big release will be the organizational rankings. The Rangers won’t be first, with Baltimore and St. Louis likely duking it out for the top spot, but should be in the top five.

Video time

As was mentioned in the Tuesday newsletter, the Rangers Today Baseball Podcast’s YouTube channel is more than just podcast episodes.

The channel also includes a variety of other videos, such as player interviews, press conferences and videos of batting practice and bullpen sessions.

For example, John Moore posted two videos from Fan Fest shot by podcast producer Joel Perez. One is of general manager Chris Young’s Q&A. The other is a Q&A of Jacob deGrom, Nathan Eovaldi and Andrew Heaney.

Check them out. You might have some downtime today as the Metroplex takes another snow day. And while you’re there, subscribe to the YouTube channel. The more the merrier.

One more thing: Dave Raymond and Matt Hicks are funny guys.

 

From the editor

You should still subscribe for only $5.99 a month, $35 for six months or $60 for the year. Do so here.

However, we have encountered a glitch with our new email system. Apparently, our probation turned into double secret probation, and we remain limited in how quickly we can get the newsletter and stories out. Many people haven’t been receiving them at all.

We have appealed about the urgency of the situation to the people who needed to hear from us. The hope is all is resolved by today.

Doggy video!

That’s one way to do it. Enjoy.
