Texas Rangers: Starting pitching depth
It may seem like a cop out to whack two teams with the same problem in a row, but the problem may be even worse at the Texas Rangers than it is in Ohio.
In light of recent performances from Martin Perez, doomsayers in Texas are mentioning the prospect of possibly entering September with a “two man rotation” of Cole Hammels and Yu Darvish.
Whilst Perez is far from terrible (8-9 and 14-12 in starts, alongside a 4.37 ERA), his recently inconsistent starts, against poor sides no less, are concerning. The Rangers need him to be better than a .500 pitcher for a meaningful post-season, and right now, he’s not.
