Texas Rangers Takeaways: Maybe No Big Trades What OK?

The Baltimore Orioles swept the Texas Rangers in a three-game series that ended on Wednesday. Here are three takeaways from the series.

The Trade Deadline

If your expectations were for the Rangers to make big moves at the trade deadline, you were sorely disappointed.

The Rangers made just one deal, sending relief pitcher Matt Bush to Milwaukee for a couple of prospects, one of which is now the Rangers’ No. 15 overall prospect in pitcher Antoine Kelly.

Given where the Rangers are, now 12 games under .500 and mired in a 5-9 start to the post-All-Star Break schedule, Texas is one its way to what looks like a third-place, or perhaps fourth-place finish in the AL West.
