Juan Minaya (R) Headshot

Minaya picked up his second save Sunday in Texas despite surrendering one run on one hit with a walk and no strikeouts in the ninth inning.

Minaya came into a 3-0 game after Aaron Bummer walked the leadoff man and immediately proceeded to walk his first batter as well. He then got pinch-hitter Shin Soo Choo to ground into a double play, which proved even more important when the next hitter homered to make it a 3-2 game. Minaya was able to gather himself and get the final out, but he didn't make much progress in cementing the closer role for himself.

A.J. Griffin (R) Headshot

Griffin (6-4) allowed three runs on six hits with three walks and three strikeouts over five innings in Sunday's loss to the White Sox.

All of Chicago's offense came in the fourth inning, as Griffin allowed five of the first six hitters to reach with a walk, an infield single and a hit batter contributing to the carnage. That one poor inning was all it took to stick the right-hander with a loss, as Texas' normally explosive home offense was kept off the board until the ninth inning. Griffin's still fortunate to have a 6-4 record given his 5.10 ERA in 12 starts, so the lack of run support was due to come at some point. He'll hope for better luck Friday in Oakland.

Miguel González (R) Headshot

Gonzalez (7-10) held the Rangers to four hits with four walks and six strikeouts over six scoreless innings in Sunday's 3-2 win.

Gonzalez has turned it on out of nowhere in his past three starts, allowing just two runs over 20 innings. He had a 5.15 ERA in 17 appearances prior to this hot streak, but his season mark has now come all the way down to 4.44. Gonzalez's K/9 is still a paltry 5.34, so you can probably find better options Friday with the veteran righty facing a Tigers offense that ranks 12th at 4.79 runs per game.
