Some days you just take the beating, try to forget it, and come back the next day.
You hope the news about Kyle Gibson going on the IL didn’t throw a funk over everyone. You hope the Rangers playing what might be their worst game of the season had nothing to do with that.
Mainly, you hope Kyle Gibson isn’t out too long. Because that leaves only Dane Dunning to carry this rotation. And he is still too young to assume that burden all to himself.
Yesterday, against the Angels, Yang didn’t have it. Neither did de Geus. They combined for eleven earned runs in five innings. The D-Train went two scoreless. And Brett Martin finished off the night shaky but unscathed. But the damage was already done.
Not much to see. Not much to get worried about. Hyeon-Jong Yang wasn’t part of any plans to begin with. He filled in admirably. The Rangers rotation was weak to begin with. Now it’s thin and weak.
