The Texas Rangers are clearly a work in progress with a new manager.
After being one of only four teams to play 10 days in a row to open the season, the Rangers finally got a day off Thursday.
Manager Jeff Banister says he knew there would be inconsistencies, given that hitters are being asked to have a different approach. Texas also has one of the youngest rosters in the majors with an average age of 27.
Texas is 4-6 this season, already with plenty of ups-and-downs.
The Rangers split a season-opening four-game series at Oakland, including a 10-0 loss followed by a 10-1 win the next day. They went 2-4 on their first home stand, which wrapped up Wednesday with a 10-2 loss to the Los Angeles Angels.
