  • Rangers' Mitch Garver: Perfect at plate Monday

    Garver went 3-for-3 with a solo home run and a walk in a 5-1 victory versus the Angels on Monday.

    Garver was the only Texas player with multiple hits in the contest, and his sixth-inning solo shot gave the team its first lead. The veteran is working on a modest five-game hitting streak, during which he's batting an even .500 (8-for-16) with a pair of homers and five RBI. Garver has played in just 82 games this season, but he's been very productive with 19 long balls and 50 RBI along with a .281/.381/.525 slash line.

  • Rangers' Mitch Garver: Returns to lineup, homers

    Garver went 1-for-3 with a walk, a home run and a second run scored in Wednesday's 15-5 win over Boston.

    Garver, who was given a day off Tuesday amid a fallow stretch, returned to the lineup Wednesday and homered during Texas' six-run second inning that wiped out an early 4-0 deficit. It was his 18th home run in 78 games, the most homers and games played since the 2019 season. Garver was in a 1-for-19 stretch before Tuesday's off day.

  • Rangers' Mitch Garver: Not starting Tuesday

    The move to the bench snaps a run of 19 straight starts for Garver, during which he posted an .877 OPS with five home runs, 10 RBI, 12 runs and a 14:16 BB:K. Robbie Grossman will serve as the designated hitter Tuesday while Evan Carter starts in left field.

  • Rangers' Mitch Garver: Batting cleanup Friday

    Garver (foot) is serving as the DH and batting cleanup Friday at Cleveland.

    Garver was lifted from Thursday's series finale against the Blue Jays after fouling a ball off his left foot, but X-rays came back negative and he won't miss a contest, serving as the designated hitter for Friday's series opener versus the Guardians. Jonah Heim will do the catching for the visiting Rangers.

  • Rangers' Mitch Garver: No fracture revealed

    X-rays on Garver's left foot did not reveal a fracture after he exited Thursday's game against the Blue Jays, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Garver fouled a ball off of his foot during an at-bat in the fifth inning and exited one frame later. He has been diagnosed with a foot contusion. Sam Huff entered the game as the designated hitter to replace Garver.

  • Rangers' Mitch Garver: Exits Thursday's game

    Garver was removed from Thursday's game against the Blue Jays due to left foot soreness, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Garver fouled a ball off his foot in the fifth inning and was struggling to run to first base later in the at-bat. The severity of the issue is unclear, though there should be more clarity after he undergoes imaging.

  • Rangers' Mitch Garver: Lights up former team

    Garver went 4-for-4 with two homers, four RBI and two runs scored in Sunday's 6-5 victory over Minnesota.

    Garver mashed against his former team, collecting his first four-hit game since April of 2019 as a member of the Twins. His three-run blast in the first put the Rangers on the board, and he later added a solo shot in the seventh that helped Texas regain the lead. Garver has been on a power surge since the start of August with a .313 average, 10 homers, 20 RBI and 16 runs scored in 95 at-bats.

  • Rangers' Mitch Garver: Power surge continues

    Garver went 1-for-2 with two walks, a solo home run and a second run scored in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Mets.

    All the scoring came late, as Garver broke open a scoreless tie by taking Drew Smith deep in the seventh inning before scoring what proved to be the winning run on an Ezequiel Duran single in the top of the ninth. Garver has gone yard four times in his last six games, all solo shots, and he's slashed a stellar .317/.404/.659 through 23 games in August with eight of his 13 homers on the year and 16 of his 36 RBI. Even with Jonah Heim healthy, the Rangers will continue finding room for Garver in the starting nine as long as he's locked in, either at catcher or DH.

  • Rangers' Mitch Garver: Gets rest day

    Garver is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Mets.

    Garver will get a maintenance day after he started each of the Rangers' last 12 games at either designated hitter or catcher. He produced a .954 OPS over that stretch, so Garver should be relatively secure in his role as Texas' preferred DH for the time being. Manager Bruce Bochy will give Robbie Grossman a look in the DH role Monday while Garver rests up.

  • Rangers' Mitch Garver: Launches 12th homer

    Garver went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Twins.

    Garver's home run was his third in his last four games, though they've all been solo shots and he has just one additional hit in that span. The 32-year-old is up to 12 home runs, 35 RBI, 27 runs scored and 10 doubles while slashing .278/.361/.515 through 57 contests this season. With Jonah Heim slumping since returning from a wrist injury, Garver could push for more time behind the dish -- he played there Saturday for the first time since Sunday. In any case, Garver's power production should at least keep him as the Rangers' top option for designated-hitter duties.

  • Rangers' Mitch Garver: Clubs homer Tuesday

    Garver went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Diamondbacks.

    Garver's recent strong stretch ended with a three-game slump in which he went 0-for-12, but he was back to bashing Tuesday. His homer was his fourth of the month and 10th of the season. The catcher is at a .277/.357/.495 slash line with 33 RBI, 25 runs scored and 10 doubles over 54 contests this year. Garver has seen most of his playing time at designated hitter since Jonah Heim returned from a wrist injury.

  • Rangers' Mitch Garver: Continues hot stretch

    Garver went 1-for-3 with a solo home run, a walk and two runs scored in Friday's 9-8 loss against the Brewers.

    Garver's fourth-inning home run was his ninth of the season. He handled the starting role behind the plate while Jonah Heim spent more than two weeks on the shelf with a wrist injury, and Garver is continuing to see a consistent role as the Rangers ease Heim back into the lineup. Garver has rewarded the Rangers by hitting safely in all but two of his last 17 starts with an on-base percentage of .458, four home runs and 12 RBI during that stretch.

  • Rangers' Mitch Garver: Drives in three Saturday

    Garver went 3-for-5 with three RBI and a run scored in Saturday's 9-3 win over the Giants.

    Garver's RBI single in the fourth inning put the Rangers ahead 2-1, and he knocked in another pair of singles with another single in the ninth. Across his 13 games since Jonah Heim (wrist) went on the injured list, Garver has hit .348 (16-for-46) with three home runs and 10 RBI. He's up to a .282/.356/.487 slash line with eight homers, 30 RBI, 21 runs scored and eight doubles across 46 contests this season.

  • Rangers' Mitch Garver: Goes deep in win

    Garver went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 2-1 win over the Giants.

    Garver homered just one pitch after Nathaniel Lowe opened the scoring in the sixth inning. After a stretch where he hit safely in 12 of 13 games, Garver had gone 0-for-6 across his last two contests before snapping the mini-skid. The catcher is up to eight homers, 27 RBI, 20 runs scored, eight doubles and a .272/.349/.483 slash line over 169 plate appearances this season. He continues to see a starting role while Jonah Heim (wrist) is out, though Garver could see more time at designated hitter once the Rangers' top backstop is back.
