Sullivan the other day (Twitter link). The club still anticipates him to be prepared for the period opener– whenever it might be. Calhoun’s schedule, or absence thereof, will possibly have straight implications for possibility Nick Solak An extremely promoted player without a clear opening on the ruby, Solak would certainly’ve opened up the period in left area had Calhoun gotten on the damaged listing. But with Calhoun forecasted to open up in left area, Rougned Odor at keystone, Todd Frazier at 3rd base as well as Danny Santana in facility area, there’s no clear area for Solak to port right into the schedule. A turning with numerous placements every week might obtain him routine at- bats, yet the Rangers might likewise desire him to get daily associates at one setting in Triple- A. Then once again, if the period opens up with increased lineups– as is supposedly present– a gamer with Solak’s bat as well as convenience might verify a specifically useful product to carry hand.
