Jacob deGrom and other Rangers pitchers impress over the weekend

Texas Rangers pitcher Martin Perez anchored the pitching staff a year ago. This year, he’s one of the Rangers’ elite arms.

Texas Rangers pitchers had a busy weekend that included the World Baseball Classic.

Here’s how the Rangers pitchers fared over the weekend.

Martin Pérez

Perez had a game to forget in his quarterfinal matchup against Team USA. Perez only recorded one out while allowing five hits and three earned runs in the first inning of Venezuela 9-7 loss to the U.S.

Jacob deGrom

On Sunday deGrom faced off against the Seattle Mariners in his spring training debut for the Rangers.

deGrom did not disappoint tossing three scoreless innings, only allowing two hits while recording four strikeouts.

Nathan Eovaldi

Eovaldi pitched against the Milwaukee Brewers on Friday throwing for 3.1 innings with five strikeouts while allowing four hits.

Cole Ragans

Ragans had been one of the Rangers best pitchers during spring training with his increased velocity a common talking point.

Ragans turned in one of his worst performances of the spring throwing for 3.1 innings while allowing four runs on four hits but did strikeout six during his appearance against the Brewers.

José Leclerc

Leclerc is in the running to be the Rangers closer and provided a glimpse of what he could bring to the role on Saturday versus the Los Angeles Angels.

Lecler threw for 1.1 innings allowing no runs or hits while striking out two and earning the save against the Angels.
