Stubbs added to provide speed off bench
This has been a tough season for outfielder Drew Stubbs. A former No. 1 pick by the Reds in 2006, Stubbs was an everyday player for Cincinnati in 2009-12, in Cleveland in 2013 and in Colorado last season. That wasn't the case this season, but he still finds himself on a playoff contender going into September.

Andrus' bid to jump-start Rangers thwarted

Three keys to rebuilt Rangers' playoff push
After 95 losses in 2014 and a brutal run of injuries to start 2015, it was easy enough to count the Rangers out. But they've surged back into a playoff position, and it hasn't been just due to Prince Fielder and Cole Hamels.

Holland's gem gives Texas hope for stretch run
It may be tempting right now for the Rangers to imagine where they'd be in the standings if Derek Holland had been with them the whole season. Had he been healthy and made another twenty-something starts like he did Sunday in a 6-0 victory over the Orioles, the Rangers might well be leading the American League West right now.

Kela has been electric out of the bullpen
The Rangers gave Keona Kela 10 days off in Frisco from Aug. 1-10 to ease his workload. He has been outstanding since his return, and he may have procured the two biggest outs in Saturday's 4-3 victory.
