Adrian Beltre plays strikeout mini golf at home plate (Big League Stew)

Tue, 27 Sep 2016 06:51:38 PDT

One of the worst things about the end of the baseball season is that there will be no new highlights from Texas Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre for at least six months. It happened on Monday night while the Rangers were playing the Milwaukee Brewers. In the fifth inning, facing Brewers pitcher Matt Garza, Beltre swung through dead air for strike three, ending his at-bat (and also the inning).

Mon, 26 Sep 2016 11:41:05 PDT

When the Minnesota Twins fired general manager and executive vice president Terry Ryan in July, after more than 30 years with the club, there was little doubt that their front office was going to get younger. Yahoo Sports’ Jeff Passan is reporting the Twins are about to hire 33-year-old Derek Falvey from the Cleveland Indians as their new president of baseball operations. Other industry sources are saying the same thing, but there’s been no official announcement from the Twins.

More importantly, manager Jeff Bannister's ballclub missed a chance to hang onto its lead in the race for home-field advantage in the playoffs. With their final six games at Globe Life Park - where they own the second-best home record in the AL - the Rangers are still confident heading into the final stretch of the regular season. ''It's crucial,'' Bannister said after Oakland rookie Jharel Cotton pitched seven crisp innings to beat Rangers 7-1.

Finnegan pitched five scoreless innings in what likely was his final start of the season, lifting the Reds to a 4-2 victory. ''You don't want to come out, especially that early in the game, so there was no way I was going to let them take me out,'' Finnegan said of being struck on the inside of his right knee.

Sun, 25 Sep 2016 00:09:01 PDT

Jonathan Villar is struggling -- badly -- but Milwaukee Brewers manager Craig Counsell isn't worried. One the more pleasant surprises on Milwaukee's roster this season, Villar entrenched himself in the leadoff spot early on in 2016 and kept on hitting, carrying a .297 average into the final month of the season. "What Jonathan -- and a couple of guys -- are going through is just the grind of a major league season," Counsell said.

The Texas Rangers became the first American League team and the second team overall — joining the Chicago Cubs — to secure a postseason berth after clinching the AL West on Friday night.
