The Rangers have started 8 different pitchers this season and only one has an ERA of under 6.28 this season (Mike Wood 5.40). I figured I should list all of these guys so no one gets left out so here they are: Kameron Loe, Brandon McCarthy, Robinson Tejada, Kevin Millwood, Vicente Padilla, Jamey Wright, Mike Wood and John Koronka. Millwood and Padilla are proven major league pitchers that are just off to bad starts and the Rangers think they will get turned around at some point. Brandon McCarthy is a highly though of young pitcher that the Rangers traded two good pitching prospects for so he will get a chance to work through his current problems. But, Kameron Loe and Robinson Tejada are both walking on thin ice as far as the Rangers are concerned. But what could the Rangers really do here? Mike Wood and John Koronka are no better than what they currently have in their rotation and Jamey Wright is hurt. It’s time to panic about the Rangers starting staff because they aren’t giving the team a good shot to win ballgames. They need to make some trades to bring in help and sooner rather than later or the season will be over soon.
The Rangers starting rotation has a 14-30 record with a 6.48 ERA and a 1.68 WHIP on the season between the 8 of them.
