Curtis Granderson went 1-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and a run scored against the A's on Tuesday.
It had been eight games since Granderson's last home run and seven since his last RBI. He has, however, hit safely in four of his last five games so at least when he hasn't been contributing in the counting stats, he's been reasonably productive with the batting average. Sadly though, he's still only batting .234 on the year. ANALYST: Howard Bender
Rangers released OF Nate Schierholtz.
Schierholtz was informed that he would not make the team, and the outfielder opted to request his release from the club instead of being sent to the minors. He'll now search for another club that can provide him with a spot on the 25-man roster. Analysis: Ben Diamond
