Rangers' Cole Ragans: Lands on injured list
Ragans was placed on the 15-day injured list with a left calf strain Monday.
Ragans made his final start of the year against the Angels on Saturday and allowed a run on four hits and a walk while striking out two in five innings to settle for a no-decision. Even though he wouldn't have pitched again in 2022, he's dealing with a calf issue that will force him to finish the year on the IL. It's not yet clear whether the injury will have any impact on his offseason program.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Cole Ragans: Takes no-decision Saturday
Ragans allowed a run on four hits and a walk while striking out two over five innings to take a no-decision versus the Angels on Saturday.
Ragans threw just 43 of 71 pitches for strikes, but it ended up being an effective outing nonetheless. His lone mistake was an RBI single to Kurt Suzuki in the second inning, which was the only run in the contest until both teams scored twice in the seventh. Despite the solid outing, Ragans finishes his first major-league campaign still in search of a win. He put up a 4.95 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 27:16 K:BB across 40 innings over nine starts after debuting in August.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Cole Ragans: Takes loss Sunday
Ragans (0-3) took the loss Sunday, allowing four runs (three earned) on six hits and one walk over five innings against the Guardians. He struck out three.
After facing the minimum through two innings, Ragans ran into trouble in the third. The Guardians recorded four singles in the inning, which along with a throwing error, led to Cleveland scoring four runs. Ragans made it through the next two innings with relative ease, but it wasn't enough to avoid taking his third loss. Sunday marked his first start of at least five innings since Aug. 17, a trend he will try to continue in his next start, which will likely come against the Angels this weekend.... See More ...

Rangers' Cole Ragans: Escapes with no-decision
Ragans allowed two runs on seven hits and no walks while striking out five over 4.2 innings in a no-decision versus the Angels on Tuesday.
Ragans limited the damage to a Matt Duffy two-run home run in the second inning, which went down the left-field line. This was Ragans' fourth straight no-decision, and it was also his longest of three starts since returning from a calf injury. The southpaw lowered his season ERA to 5.40 with a 1.57 WHIP and 22:14 K:BB, and he notably avoided issuing a walk for the first time in seven outings. He's projected for a weekend start at home versus the Guardians.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Cole Ragans: Hit hard in home start
Ragans took a no-decision Tuesday versus the Athletics, allowing seven runs on eight hits and a walk while striking out five in four innings.
Ragans got a bit more stretched out, throwing 70 pitches (48 strikes) in his second start back from a calf injury. He's had trouble with Oakland through his first two starts versus the Rangers' divisional rivals, allowing 10 runs across nine innings. The 24-year-old southpaw is clearly still adjusting to the majors with a 5.68 ERA and 1.58 WHIP through 25.1 innings, though he was able to walk just one batter for the second time in six starts. He's projected for a home start versus the Angels next week.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Cole Ragans: Drawing another start
Ragans is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Athletics at Globe Life Field.
Ragans returned to action last week following a brief stint on the 15-day injured list with a calf strain, pitching three scoreless frames in a start in Houston on Sept. 7. Because he didn't head out on a minor-league rehab assignment beforehand, Ragans tossed only 49 pitches in the outing, and he could be limited to around the 60-to-75-pitch range this week when he makes his second straight turn through the rotation....

Rangers' Cole Ragans: Decent in return
Ragans (calf) issued three walks and struck out three over three scoreless and hitless innings in a no-decision versus the Astros on Wednesday.
Ragans missed a couple of weeks with a minor left calf strain. The southpaw was solid, though a little wild, in his return. He threw 49 pitches (26 strikes) in this outing, and he's yet to complete more than five innings in any of his five major-league appearances. He has a 3.80 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 12:13 K:BB through 21.1 innings for the Rangers. Ragans should continue to get an extended look in the rotation, and he's projected for a favorable home start versus the Athletics next week.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Cole Ragans: Activated prior to start
Ragans (calf) was reinstated from the 15-day injured list ahead of Wednesday's start against the Astros.
Ragans landed on the IL in late August due to a left calf strain, but his injury wasn't considered serious, and he'll rejoin the Rangers' rotation following a relatively brief absence. Over his first four major-league starts, the 24-year-old has posted a 4.42 ERA and 1.53 WHIP in 18.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Cole Ragans: Confirmed as Wednesday's starter
Ragans (calf) will start Wednesday's game in Houston, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.
This was anticipated earlier in the week and now we have confirmation. Ragans logged a 4.42 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 9:10 K:BB in 18.1 innings across his first four MLB starts.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Cole Ragans: Could return Wednesday
Ragans (calf) appears on track to return from the 15-day injured list to start Wednesday's game in Houston, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.
The Rangers haven't provided an update on Ragans' condition since he was forced to the IL on Aug. 26 with a left calf strain, but interim manager Tony Beasley previously downplayed the injury and fully expected the rookie to return in the minimum amount of time. Texas' decision to designate fill-in starter Dallas Keuchel for assignment Sunday seemingly supports the notion that Ragans will be ready to rejoin the rotation by the middle of the week. The Rangers could opt for a bullpen day Wednesday in the event Ragans isn't quite ready to go for the series finale in Houston.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Cole Ragans: Out with calf strain
Ragans was placed on the 15-day injured list with a strained left calf Friday.
Ragans made his MLB debut in early August and recorded a 4.42 ERA in his first four starts, though his 9:10 K:BB suggests things could have gone much worse. He'll miss at least two turns in the rotation, with Dallas Keuchel expected to take his place.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Cole Ragans: Four innings in no-decision
Ragans did not factor into the decision Monday, allowing one run on five hits and two walks over four innings against the Twins. He struck out two.
The Rangers' rookie made it through four innings with only one run allowed despite failing to record a clean inning. His seven combined hits and walks allowed increased his WHIP to 1.53 over four starts this season, which is out of step with his 1.07 WHIP in 43.1 innings at Triple-A. Ragans will be hard to trust until he can start missing bats more often. He will take a 4.42 ERA into his next start.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Cole Ragans: Beat by the long ball Wednesday
Ragans (0-2) took the loss Wednesday, allowing three runs on four hits and one walk over five innings in a 7-2 loss against the Athletics. He struck out three.
The rookie was tagged for two home runs off the bat of Sean Murphy, which accounted for all three runs allowed on the night. He was able to get through five innings on just 83 pitches as he allowed just one walk, a welcome sign after he walked a combined seven over his first two starts in the big leagues. He will carry a 5.02 ERA into his next start.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Cole Ragans: Problems in Houston
Ragans (0-2) took the loss Thursday against the Astros, allowing five runs on six hits and three walks while striking out one in 4.1 innings.
Ragans was unable to follow his strong big-league debut with a similar performance. Both Martin Maldonado and Alex Bregman launched moonshots off Ragans as the Astros got out to a 5-0 lead. He struggled with his command throughout the outing and tossed just 49 of his 88 pitches for strikes. Through 9.1 innings in the majors, the 24-year-old has a 4:7 K:BB after posting a 113:31 K:BB in 94.2 minor-league innings. His next start will likely come early next week against Oakland....

Rangers' Cole Ragans: Remains in rotation
Ragans is listed as the Rangers' scheduled starting pitcher for Thursday's game in Houston.
The rookie southpaw will make his second straight turn through the rotation after he had a strong showing in his MLB debut last week against the White Sox, covering five innings and striking out three in a no-decision while allowing one unearned run on three hits and four walks. He'll need to cut down on the free passes to consistently succeed in the big leagues, but Ragans looks like he'll at least have a decent amount of leash in the Texas rotation while Jon Gray (oblique) is expected to be sidelined into September....

Rangers' Cole Ragans: Navigates heavy traffic in debut
Ragans didn't factor into the decision during Thursday's 3-2 win against the White Sox, allowing an unearned run on three hits and four walks with three strikeouts in five innings.
Making his MLB debut, Ragans stranded the bases loaded in the first inning and kept the damage manageable in the next four frames, with one run coming across due to an Adolis Garcia error in the third. The 2016 first-round pick tossed 55 of 93 pitches for strikes but was able to record only seven called strikes, with Chicago fouling off 43.6 percent off his offerings in the strike zone. The other concerning factor was four walks in five frames, though he issued a reasonable 2.9 BB/9 across 94.2 innings in the minors this season. Ragans will be in for a tough test with a matchup against Houston on the dockett next week.... See More ... See Less
Rangers' Cole Ragans: Contract officially selected
Ragans' contract was selected from Triple-A Round Rock ahead of Thursday's start against the White Sox.
Ragans was a first-round pick in 2016 and will make his major-league debut during Thursday's series opener at Globe Life Field. The left-hander was promoted to Round Rock in mid-June and posted a 3.32 ERA and 1.07 WHIP in 43.1 innings over eight Triple-A starts. If Ragans performs well Thursday, it wouldn't be surprising to see him remain in the Rangers' rotation.... See More ... See Less
