Round Rock callups: Martin Perez, Brandon Snyder, Yoshinori Tateyama, Leonys Martin

The Rangers have announced that pitchers Yoshinori Tateyama and Martin Perez, infielder Brandon Snyder and outfielder Leonys Martin have been called up for September. The Rangers are also recalling pitcher Tanner Scheppers to replace Robbie Ross. The Rangers have designed pitcher Miguel de los Santos for assignment. Reliever Tyler Tufts has also been called up to the big leagues and placed on the disabled list. He is sidelined because of surgery earlier this year but bringing him up and putting him on the disabled list gives the Rangers roster flexibility for the playoffs.

My, has Jules Borbon fallen from grace, after a very productive AAA season you would think the guy would get a call just as a reward for continuing to work hard even though he hasn’t seen a big league field in a year and a half. At this point you have to trade the guy because you’re not helping his value by not even giving a curtesy call and you’re not helping the team by letting they guy languish in AAA,
This tell you how much talent this organization has, I have no dought that he could go right into the Lastros lineup as they’re starting center fielder and possibly rebuild what was once a very promising career.
This also reveals what now has to considered a real weakness in Ron Washington coaching style. His inability to develope young talented players. He seems to be very short on patience in such situations which has resulted in players leaving and contributing to other teams success, Chris Davis and Pedro Strop are exibits A and B.
I just hope we do a better job with the wave of talent which will soon be pushing the established vets for playing time.
Truly great managers are able to find a balanced mix between the development of young talent and the correct utilization of veteran players you have skins on the wall. This will be an essential part of the Rangers continued success in view of the full pipeline of very high upside talent wich will be knocking at the door in the next 2 or 3 years.

Uhhhh……Samster…..tap the breaks on your Ron Washington critique. Chris Davis had many chances up here. Wash can’t make him stop swinging at bad pitches. And, Strop was buried behind a solid bullpen. Both became valuable trade pieces that helped the Rangers last year. The Rangers are no longer a development team. They are a perennial contender. Guys are given a chance and if they don’t develop, someone else steps in. Would you rather have Mitch Moreland or Chris Davis at 1st? Who would you replace in the bullpen with Strop? With Hamilton, Gentry, Martin (who had a better season than Borbon) to play CF, what exactly benefits the Rangers by bringing Borbon up? You are right, he will go somewhere else and he may become a productive CF. He had his chance here for 2 seasons and he failed to seize the opportunity while being passed by Gentry and Martin. That’s the way baseball go. You can’t lay that at the feet of Wash. And, I think Elvis has developed well, Moreland is developing well, and he even commented on how much Wash’s coaching has helped his fielding improve by working with him on his footwork. I think that back to back World Series appearances and, to date, 1st place 5 games up on the A’s and 7.5 up on the Angels is significant skins on the wall for Wash. He is the greatest manager in Rangers’ history and he should stay here until he chooses to leave. And, as the great Forrest Gump would say…”that’s all I’m gonna say about that”.

Uhhhh……………Rodney…………Samster will tap the breaks on opining on Ron Washington the day after you tap the breaks on opining on Samster……Deal ? You have a talent for trying to put words in my mouth, and I refuse to allow you to do so.
I never said anything about running Ron out of town or how long Ron should be here or if Ron has done a good job as Manager here, and I never said that Ron hasn’t played a roll in the development of certain players, my cornern was the fact the Chris Davis DID receive ample Playing time but DID NOT develope until he left For a scenery change. Strop I dare say would fit nicely in any MLB bullpen that you can name, including our own. Especially when you consider the fact the Koji, Adams and Lowe are all eligible for free agency at years end. And Strop really never received a extended look. In my opinion the development of young talent will always be the lifes blood of ANY major sports franchise, the development of gifted players is what will actually pave the way for the sustained success when older,more proven players move on or price themselves out of your plans.
Again the point is in view of the inevitable turnover soon to come, developing these young talented prospects will be essential to continued success. Not nessesary to develope Olt,Profar,Martin,Perez and Sheppers Now, in the middle of a pennant race, I know that, and you are right, no one cane ultimately lay success or failure of any player on the Manager, but this team is going to look a lot different in 3 or 4 years, how good we are will depend greatly on how these young players come along.
Can Ron Washington be the guy who successfully oversees that transition ? I think so
Has the development of younger non veteran players been a strength of his recently ? No. Though he hasn’t really had to

Is he the best manager in Rangers history ? Without a doubt,
does he drive me crazy at times ? Heck Yeah !!!
Do I want to get rid of him ? HECK NO !!!!!

Is it my right to give an opinion on my favorite sports team. ? ………UHHH Yeah !!!!!!

Rodney, your are certainly right about Moreland, I’d much rather have him at first over Davis, I have to admit I thought we should have taken a hard look at Fielder last off season. WoW I’m glad we didn’t go there, now that Moreland has come along, but this does go to show that teams are always in the business of player development. As far as calling Borbon goes, no I don’t think he had a better season than Martin or Gentry, I do believe in rewarding hard work. Just as Brandon Snyder was rewarded with a call up even though he may not get into a game for the rest of the season.
