Aroldis Chapman racked up his 21st save after he struck out the side for a perfect ninth inning against the Pirates on Sunday.
The month of July has been very good to Chapman as he's now made six scoreless appearances, earned five saves and posted a 14:2 K:BB over just six innings. He has done nothing but re-establish his elite status after missing the beginning of the season because of a line drive that got bounced off his face during spring training. A killer arm and killer job security; what more could you want from your closer?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
