Speedy Ben Revere in Rangers camp with Triple-A deal
SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) — Speedy outfielder Ben Revere is in spring training with the Texas Rangers after signing a Triple-A contract.
Revere was with the Rangers for their first full-squad workout Monday after completing a successful physical. The 30-year-old left-handed hitter last played in the majors with the Los Angeles Angels in 2017, when he hit .275 with 21 stolen bases in 109 games.
He is a .284 career hitter with 211 stolen bases for five teams over eight big league seasons.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The Texas Rangers agreed to one-year contracts with Nomar Mazara and Delino DeShields, avoiding arbitration with both outfielders Friday.
Mazara gets $3.3 million, a big raise over the $563,560 he made last season. DeShields received a $1.4 million deal after earning $561,500 last year. They were the only two Texas players eligible for salary arbitration this winter.
Rangers OFs Mazara, DeShields avoid arbitration with deals
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The Texas Rangers have avoided arbitration with outfielders Nomar Mazara and Delino DeShields by agreeing to 2019 contracts.
Mazara, the 23-year-old slugger already with three 20-homer seasons, will make $3.3 million and DeShields will get $1.4 million. Both made about $550,000 last season.
The Rangers haven't had to go to a salary arbitration hearing since 2000 with first baseman/designated hitter Lee Stevens.
No surgery for Rangers RF Mazara after thumb examined
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Texas Rangers right fielder Nomar Mazara won't need surgery on his sprained right thumb after being examined by a hand specialist.

Segura benched for lack of hustle, Mariners top Rangers 12-6
SEATTLE (AP) — Jean Segura made a smart slide to score. It's the roundabout path he took toward the plate that bothered Seattle manager Scott Servais.
Servais pulled Segura for a lack of hustle after two innings, saying he wanted to send the All-Star shortstop a message Friday night during the Mariners' 12-6 win over the Texas Rangers.
Rangers pound 6 homers, 12 extra-base hits, rout Twins 18-4
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Yohander Mendez and Nomar Mazara have gone through down periods this season. Everything came together for them on Sunday.

Mendez (1-1) allowed three hits and one walk while striking out two in six scoreless innings. He was making his second major league start in a season when he was a combined 2-10 with the Rangers' top three farm teams.
Beltre, young sluggers homer as Rangers beat Twins 7-4
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Adrian Beltre will play as often as his troublesome hamstring will let him in the final month of his 21st and possibly final season.
And it will all be with the last-place Texas Rangers.
Beltre hit his 470th career homer after 23-year-old sluggers Nomar Mazara and Ronald Guzman went deep, helping the Rangers stop a five-game losing streak with a 7-4 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Saturday night.
Cave caps 8-run inning with homer, Twins beat Rangers 10-7
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Jake Cave watched Mitch Garver wipe out what was left of Minnesota's six-run deficit with a bases-clearing double.
Then the rookie put the Twins in front to match the club's highest-scoring inning of the season.
Cave hit a tiebreaking homer right after Garver's three-run double in an eight-run fifth, sending the Minnesota Twins to a 10-7 victory over the Texas Rangers on Friday night.
Rougned Odor drives in 3 for Rangers in 6-4 win over Angels
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Rougned Odor and the Texas Rangers quickly got after yet another new Angels pitcher.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The Texas Rangers are going to get another big league look at the top prospect they got in the trade for Yu Darvish last summer.
Outfielder Willie Calhoun was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock on Friday for his first stint in the majors this season after the Rangers put outfielder Nomar Mazara on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right thumb.
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Shin-Soo Choo said he cares much more about getting on base multiple times each game than circling the bases.
Then, he proceeded to do both.
Choo reached base for the 41st straight game with a first-inning walk, tying the major league high this season, and also hit one of Texas' five Texas home runs in the first three innings of the Rangers' 11-3 victory over the Chicago White Sox on Friday night.
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Shin-Soo Choo is a game away from matching the majors' longest on-base streak this season only because the Texas Rangers couldn't protect a late lead in a loss to the San Diego Padres.
Choo singled with two outs in the ninth inning to reach base in his 39th straight game after Wil Myers and Hunter Renfroe hit run-scoring doubles as part of a three-run eighth that helped the Padres rally for a 3-2 win Tuesday night.
Kemp and Chirinos ejected after home plate collision
LOS ANGELES (AP) — Matt Kemp of the Los Angeles Dodgers and catcher Robinson Chirinos of the Texas Rangers have been ejected in the third inning after a home plate collision that led to a benches-clearing confrontation between the teams.
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Nomar Mazara was looking for something up in the zone in each of his last two at-bats. The young slugger got it, and went deep both times to give the Texas Rangers their first winning home series this season.
After hitting a tying, solo homer in the seventh inning, Mazara led off the 10th by pulling a 1-0 pitch into the right field seats to lift the Rangers over the Detroit Tigers 5-4 Wednesday.
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Nomar Mazara is cleaning up nicely for the Texas Rangers in the lineup spot usually occupied by Adrian Beltre, baseball's active career hits leader.

TORONTO (AP) — Eleven games into his big league career, Ronald Guzman is displaying the poise of a veteran in pressure situations.

Rangers avoid series sweep with 7-4 win over Mariners
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Martin Perez and Jake Diekman worked out of bases-loaded jams, and center fielder Delino DeShields had a homer-robbing catch in his first game back in the lineup for the Texas Rangers.
With that pitching and defense, and big homers by Nomar Mazara and Joey Gallo in the same inning, the Rangers beat the Seattle Mariners 7-4 on Sunday to avoid a series sweep.
"The look in his eyes, we talk about body language," manager Jeff Banister said of Perez. "He still was in control."
Delmonico’s inside-park HR lifts White Sox over Rangers 4-3
ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Nicky Delmonico already had one homer when his eighth-inning liner in a tie game eluded leaping Texas right fielder Nomar Mazara and bounced near the top of the wall.
The long carom finally stopped about 100 feet from the crumpled Mazara on the warning track, and the Chicago White Sox rookie whose career is off to a stirring start, was on his way.
