Don’t Do The Wave At Globe Life Park
Rangers fans were treated to a warning during a recent homestand in a game with the Miami Marlins. The warning advised fans of the possibility of injury that seemed to be common among the Ranger players in recent weeks. The Texas Rangers have been plagued with a league leading 20 players on the injured list.
While the jumbo board warning was surely meant for humor and fun, all of the Ranger fans were taking note of the incredible number of injuries. Most recently, pitcher Tanner Scheppers was added to the disabled list (DL) for a 15 day stint, bringing the Texas Rangers the dubious distinction of having the most players on the DL in the major leagues.
Other injured players include:
Beltre, Engel (RF); Fielder, Prince (1B); Figueroa, Pedro (P); Harrison, Matt (P); Holland, Derek (P); Kouzmanoff, Kevin (3B); Moreland, Mitch (1B); Ogando, Alexi (P); Ortiz, Joseph (P); Perez, Martin (P); Profar, Jurickson (2B); Scheppers, Tanner (P); Soto, Geovany (C).
