In a weekly staple, we'll discuss who's in a groove and who's in a rut for the Texas Rangers.
Adrian Beltre — The power really isn't there right now, but Beltre's not the guy to fault for the Rangers' offensive woes. In his past six games, he's batting .455 with two doubles and two RBIs. He also made a spectacular play at third base on Tuesday night, showing he still has some wiggle in his aging body.
Leonys Martin — The surging center fielder has remained hot, hitting .368 in his last six games and he's tied for the lead with three RBIs over that time, showing the ineptitude of the Rangers' offense lately.
Miles Mikolas — The rookie righty tossed a gem on Monday night, working eight shutout innings in the Rnagers' 2-0 win over the Mariners. He allowed just three hits.
Elvis Andrus — The young, yet veteran shortstop has cooled recently. In his past six games, he's batting just .136 with more strikeouts (four) than walks (three).
Rougned Odor — The 20-year-old second baseman, who's seen his fair share of expected struggles this year, is batting just .158 over his past six games with no walks, continuing his trend of having absolutely no plate discipline. But again, he's 20.
