Texas should be as busy as anyone at the trade deadline, with bullpen help, a starter, and perhaps another bat in sight. It was a rough week for all Rangers pitchers, as they gave up 41 runs in a four-game span. It led to the highest ERA in baseball over seven days ending Tuesday: 8.21. The Rangers had just one starter last six innings, taxing a bullpen that kept giving up hit after hit to the Dodgers in a series loss. There’s a further emphasis on pitching before Tuesday’s trade deadline.

Most metrics-based projection models favor the Rangers in the AL West race because of their overwhelming edge over the Astros in run differential. But with Houston closing in on the division leaders, the West once again seems like the Astros’ race to lose. That means first-year GM Dana Brown can make targeted additions at the deadline. Brown told reporters that the club would likely target rotation depth, bullpen help, and a left-handed bat. On the latter front, Houston ranks last, by far, in plate appearances from lefty batters this season.
