Garrett Richards won again Tuesday as the Angels defeated the White Sox in game one of their double-header. He allowed three runs and two walks with nine strikeouts over eight innings.
Richards remains undefeated over his last six starts (5-0) with an overall record of 9-2 in 17 starts. He held the White Sox to just two hits with their three runs coming off a Jose Abreu three-run home run in the first inning. Opponents are now hitting just .194 against the young righty, which is tops among AL qualified pitchers and second best in MLB behind Reds Johnny Cueto's .171 oppBA. ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Rougned Odor is a candidate to be demoted.
He's currently slashing .146/.263/.244 with a 21-percent strikeout rate and a 50-percent ground ball rate. There hasn't been a point at all where it even looked like he was going to work himself out of this slump, so the Rangers are going to have to take a hard look at what they have, which isn't much. If you've been saddled with him in AL-only play, we hope you've already found at least a viable placeholder. Analysis: Howard Bender
