Rangers Youth Academy Notebook: Meet Joshua Marcellus

Joshua Marcellus took to the MLB Youth Academy at Mercy Street Sports Complex, Presented by Toyota, like a fish to water.

It started when the junior at Sachse High School received an email from his coach telling him to check out the Academy. Marcellus heeded the advice and made it out to the facility in June, going through an evaluation and being added to an RBI team for the summer.

Joshua Marcellus took to the MLB Youth Academy at Mercy Street Sports Complex, Presented by Toyota, like a fish to water.

It started when the junior at Sachse High School received an email from his coach telling him to check out the Academy. Marcellus heeded the advice and made it out to the facility in June, going through an evaluation and being added to an RBI team for the summer.

"I came out here about two times a week, playing and coming to some of the clinics," Marcellus said. "Then I made the All-Star tryouts and I made the All-Star team, so I ended up going to Austin, which was really cool, playing all the teams from out of state and everything, so I really liked it."

Making the roster the RBI All-Star team that represented the Rangers at the RBI Southwest Regionals in Austin in July was something Marcellus was aiming for during his time at the Academy, and the experience did not disappoint.

"Going out there and being in the hotel room with my teammates, that atmosphere," Marcellus said, listing the highlights of the RBI experience. "Going to the different fields, playing, especially playing different teams from New Orleans and everything, I thought that was pretty cool."

While Marcellus has been playing baseball since he was 8, it hasn't always been his primary sport.

He comes from a family of athletes, including a mom who was an All-American soccer player and a grandmother who was a swimmer.

"I was a natural swimmer, too," Marcellus said. "I first started swimming as a summer thing to do when I didn't have baseball and so I went to junior Olympics for my third year. Sports is really natural for my family."

There's not as much time for swimming anymore, as the schedule conflicted with baseball.

"It was still a great experience. I loved it. Baseball has had a real big part of my heart, though," Marcellus explained. "I think it's just a lot of it is just the team part of it. I love being around guys like that, going out every weekend, having those long Sundays playing all day, it really resonated with me a lot more."

And the 17 year old is making the most of his opportunities at the Academy as he pursues his baseball dreams.

"The atmosphere is great here. Everybody who's a part of it is really welcoming, the coaches are very, very helpful, and it's cool being able to play with all these kids from around the around the area. I just love coming out here," Marcellus said.

Rangers acquire INF Carlos Asuaje from Padres on waiver claim

Infielder has seen Major League action in each of last three seasons

The Texas Rangers today acquired infielder Carlos Asuaje (pronounced ah-swah-hay) from the San Diego Padres via a waiver claim. He had been designated for assignment by the Padres on Friday.

His .995 fielding percentage at second base last season was 3rd-highest in MLB among players with 200 or more chances. He also batted .314 with an .849 OPS figure over 47 games at Triple-A El Paso in the Pacific Coast League in 2018. Asuaje has played almost exclusively at second base in the Majors, but has also played third base and left field in his pro career. At the Minor League level, he has compiled a career .289 batting average and .813 OPS mark in 555 games.

Rangers Youth Academy Notebook: Meet Drew Reece

Dreaming up goals and working toward them are two different things. Even though he's just 16 years old, Drew Reece already grasps the difference.

That's what brought him out to the Texas Rangers MLB Youth Academy at Mercy Street Sports Complex, Presented by Toyota.

Dreaming up goals and working toward them are two different things. Even though he's just 16 years old, Drew Reece already grasps the difference.

That's what brought him out to the Texas Rangers MLB Youth Academy at Mercy Street Sports Complex, Presented by Toyota.

"My friend sent me an email saying, 'hey, there's this Academy that they're doing. It's completely free. It's a great opportunity to get better.' And I was like, 'I'll check it out.' I've been coming out ever since. It's a great opportunity," Reece recounted.

A sophomore at Life High School Waxahachie, Reece started coming to the Academy this fall, participating in the fall RBI league and the weeknight programming.

He also attended The Buck O'Neil Scouts Association Clinic at the facility on November 10, where professional scouts were on hand to work with athletes.

"It's not every day a kid like me can come show his skills to Major League (professionals). It gave me more insights on the game, stuff you can improve on. It was a really great experience," Reece said. "It's a great opportunity and a great advantage to kids that have this. And I don't take it for granted."

Ultimately, Reece dreams of playing in the majors himself. But in the short term, he's using the fall and winter spent playing at the Academy to get ready for the spring season of high school baseball.

And he's thinking about college, too, setting his sights on Dallas Baptist University."(Division I) school and they have a great business major. That's what I want to major in," Reece said of his thought process.

In the meantime, he's focused on learning all he can at the Academy.

"It's every day that we get to learn something - whether it's hitting, speed, running, throwing. The coaching is always face-to-face. You always get face-to-face on whatever you're doing wrong, that way you can improve," Reece said.

For Reece, the Academy represents an opportunity to continue honing his game year-round, while also having fun. But he isn't losing sight of his ultimate goal.

"You have to really play to be (in MLB) and you've got to be good. To be good, you've got to practice. I know if I want to be at that level, I have to practice every single day. The Academy, the RBI league, it's a great opportunity to get better," Reece said. "This is where it starts."

Eric Nadel to sign copies of his new book Lim-Eric! on Friday, Dec. 14 at the Rangers Grand Slam Gift Shop

Books expected to arrive in Grand Slam Gift Shop on Friday

Hitting a home run just in time for the Holiday Season is Hall of Famer Eric Nadel with his sometimes-funny, sometimes-thoughtful book of limericks, aptly titled Lim-Eric!
 
The book is currently available on Amazon, and the book will be on sale in hard copy beginning this Friday, December 7 at the Grand Slam Gift Shop at Globe Life Park in Arlington.
 
Nadel also has a pair of book signings scheduled at Globe Life Park. He will be signing in the Grand Slam Gift Shop on Friday, December 14 from 5:00-6:00 p.m. Nadel will also be appearing at the Cowboy Santas Toy Drive beginning at 4:00 p.m. on Monday, December 17.
 
A portion of the proceeds from all sales of Lim-Eric! with benefit the Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation. 
 
What started as a challenge by broadcast partner Matt Hicks in the Texas Rangers play-by-play booth quickly became not only an 8th Inning Tradition, but also a bit of an obsession. Before long, the beloved Voice of the Texas Rangers was not only contributing a limerick a game, but was found by many to be thinking and speaking in five-line stanzas. Friends started writing them and sending them his way. Fans joined in the fun. Folks he just met were answered with rhyme. And then it all came together as though he'd just found a word to rhyme with Isiah Kiner-Falefa... there were no 12-step programs for limericists, but there was an amazing illustrator who could bring these little poems to life. And so Lim-Eric! -- Whimsical Rhymes From the Voice of the Texas Rangers and his Friends was born! 
 
A collection of 175 limericks on baseball -- and other stuff, Lim-Eric! is mostly written by Nadel, but with contributions by both friends and fans. And it's not only great mind-candy, but a delight for the eye, as well. Illustrator Arthur James proved the perfect fit, from his artistic talents steeping in the unlikely mix of comic books, a sense of wonder, and a love for baseball. 
 
Nadel just completed his 40th year broadcasting Texas Rangers baseball games on the Texas Rangers Radio Network. The 2014 winner of the Ford C. Frick Award from the National Baseball Hall of Fame is also an avid music fan -- and an advocate for several philanthropic initiatives.

Rangers finalize 2019 coaching staff

Oscar Marin hired as bullpen coach, Callix Crabbe as assistant hitting coach

The Texas Rangers today announced that the club has hired Oscar Marin as bullpen coach and Callix Crabbe (pronounced KAY-licks crab) as assistant hitting coach, finalizing the club's 2019 coaching staff.

He earned South Atlantic League Coach of the Year honors with Low-A Hickory in 2015. Marin joined the Rangers organization from the prep ranks in 2010, as he previously worked as a pitching coach and coordinator for Harvard-Westlake Preparatory School in North Hollywood, California from 2008-09.

Crabbe joins the professional coaching ranks after six years as a baseball instructor and coach at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida. Crabbe also founded Crabbe-ology Sports Development in 2015, where he provides instruction in hitting, defense, base running, bunting, game strategy, personal development, and physical conditioning. Crabbe moved into coaching after a 10-season playing career in the Milwaukee, San Diego, Seattle, and Toronto organizations. He was selected by the Padres in the 2007 Rule 5 Draft and was a member of the Friars' Opening Day roster in 2008, when he appeared in 21 games in his only career big league action. Crabbe was born in St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands and moved to Georgia at age 16.

Newburn fills an opening on the Major League training staff created upon the retirement of Kevin Harmon and the promotion of Matt Lucero to head athletic trainer. The Richardson, Texas native has spent 13 seasons as a trainer for many different Rangers Minor League affiliates, including the past three years with Double-A Frisco. Newburn received his bachelor's degree from the University of Tulsa and his master's from UNLV.

Wong moves into full-time status with the Rangers staff after serving in a similar capacity over the past four seasons while continuing to work at TMI Sports Medicine & Orthopedic Surgery in Arlington. The Mansfield resident earned bachelor's and master's degrees at Ithaca (NY) College and also obtained a doctorate degree from the University of St. Augustine in Florida.

Texas Rangers Do Not Tender 2019 Contracts to Four Players on Major League Rosters

Major League roster now at 34 players

Arlington, Texas - The Texas Rangers announced this evening that the club will not tender 2019 contract offers to pitchers Matt Bush, Zac Curtis, Ricardo Rodríguez and Adrian Sampson before tonight's 7:00 p.m. CST deadline.

 

Arlington, Texas - The Texas Rangers announced this evening that the club will not tender 2019 contract offers to pitchers Matt Bush, Zac Curtis, Ricardo Rodríguez and Adrian Sampson before tonight's 7:00 p.m. CST deadline.

 

The team has tendered 2019 contract offers to all other players on the Major League roster.

 

Bush did not appear in a game after June 14 last season and underwent season-ending surgery on September 19 to repair a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. Curtis spent the entire month of September with Texas after he was received on a waiver claim from Philadelphia on August 7, combining for a 4.96 ERA in 15 games overall between the Rangers and Phillies.

 

Rodríguez allowed 3 R-ER over 6.2 IP in 4 relief appearances across 2 stints with the Rangers in 2018. He was on the major league 60-day disabled list from March 26-May 29 with right biceps tendinitis, and did not pitch after August 5 due to a right shoulder impingement. Sampson was 0-3 with a 4.30 ERA over 5 games/4 starts with the Rangers in September, his first Major League action since 2016.

Following today's transactions, the Rangers now have 34 players on the club's Major league Roster.

Texas Rangers sign free agent RHP Jesse Chavez to two-year contract

Former Texas draftee pitched for Rangers and Cubs in 2018

The Texas Rangers officially announced today that the club has signed free agent right-handed pitcher Jesse Chavez to a two-year contract covering the 2019 and 2020 seasons. Financial terms were not disclosed, per club policy.
 
Chavez, 35, combined to post a 5-2 record with a 2.55 ERA (27 ER/95.1 IP) and 5 saves over 62 relief appearances with the Rangers and Cubs in 2018, establishing career highs in relief innings and WHIP (1.059). He totaled the 2nd-most relief innings in MLB last season, trailing only Tampa Bay's Ryan Yarbrough (118.2). Over his final 45 appearances beginning June 1, Chavez compiled a 1.68 ERA (12 ER/64.1 IP) with 61 strikeouts against 11 walks. He also pitched a scoreless inning for the Cubs in the 2018 National League Wild Card Game against the Rockies, the first postseason outing of his career.
 
Chavez joins the Phillies' Tommy Hunter as the only active pitchers with at least 390.0 innings as both a starter and reliever. Originally selected by the Rangers in the 42nd round of the 2002 June draft, Chavez was traded to the Pirates in a July 31, 2006 trade involving pitcher Kip Wells. He signed with the Rangers in February and made the club's Opening Day roster before he was traded to the Cubs on July 19 in exchange for left-handed pitcher Tyler Thomas. Chavez has a career 38-53 record with a 4.45 ERA over 415 games/70 starts with nine different major league teams: Pittsburgh (2008-09), Atlanta (2010), Kansas City (2010-11), Toronto (2012, 2016), Oakland (2012-15), Los Angeles-NL (2016), Los Angeles-AL (2017), Texas (2018), and Chicago-NL (2018).
 
With the addition of Chavez, the Rangers now have 38 players on the club's major league roster.

The Texas Rangers officially announced today that the club has signed free agent right-handed pitcher Jesse Chavez to a two-year contract covering the 2019 and 2020 seasons. Financial terms were not disclosed, per club policy.
 
Chavez, 35, combined to post a 5-2 record with a 2.55 ERA (27 ER/95.1 IP) and 5 saves over 62 relief appearances with the Rangers and Cubs in 2018, establishing career highs in relief innings and WHIP (1.059). He totaled the 2nd-most relief innings in MLB last season, trailing only Tampa Bay's Ryan Yarbrough (118.2). Over his final 45 appearances beginning June 1, Chavez compiled a 1.68 ERA (12 ER/64.1 IP) with 61 strikeouts against 11 walks. He also pitched a scoreless inning for the Cubs in the 2018 National League Wild Card Game against the Rockies, the first postseason outing of his career.

Meet Colin Moore

Some athletes find the Texas Rangers MLB Youth Academy at Mercy Street Sports Complex, Presented by Toyota, because it's close to home or because a friend has been participating in the free camps or even because their high school team plays there. But the road to the Academy was a bit different for Colin Moore. 
 
Like the Academy, the Moore family is relatively new to the area, having recently relocated from Portland, Oregon. 
 
As baseball fans, the Moores were following the story of Hunter Greene, a product of the MLB Urban Youth Academy in Compton, California, who was drafted No.2 overall by the Reds in 2017. So when Colin's dad, David, found out about the Texas Rangers Youth Academy, he was ready to make something happen for his son. 
 
"We were ecstatic that a program like that existed here. I started following (the Academy) on Instagram, and then they put a post up saying 'hey, we're getting ready to start fall ball in two weeks.' And I was like 'oh my god, we've been wanting to do that,'" David recalled. "I reached out via Instagram, and they said we could still sign up."
 
So the Moore family started making the over 40-mile trip from their home in Celina, Texas, to the Academy each Saturday for Colin to participate in the RBI fall league.
 
"I really enjoy working with Coach Taylor and Coach Sosa and defense because that's where I need the most strength. When I hit, I feel like that's probably the best thing that I do on the field. They've really helped me in the outfield and the infield," Colin said of the experience. (Video of Colin discussing his time at the Academy is available here: https://www.mlb.com/video/rangers-youth-academy-moore/c-2519774683
 
For David, the decision to have his son play at the Academy is about more than just the baseball skills he's gaining.
 
"I wanted him to have the experience of playing on a very diverse team, which just rarely happens. It just doesn't just because of the dynamics of the sport, the cost," David said. "This gives us a great opportunity to work in a world of diversity, both from an ethnicity standpoint, but also socioeconomics. Not everybody's going to ride up in Range Rovers. That's more realistic of the real world and that's the experience I wanted him to have."
 
An eighth grader at Rogers Middle School, Colin played football for his school this year and also recently tried out for the basketball team. But the 13-year-old, who is already 5'11, says baseball is his favorite sport. And he's setting some goals. 
 
"My personal goal, in the short term, would be just to make varsity baseball in high school. And then my long term would be to go to MLB," Colin said. 
 
His time at the Academy is helping with that.
 
"It gives me a lot of exposure to higher levels of baseball, like high school and Major Leagues. And it also helps me with my techniques and fundamentals," Colin said.
 
David describes baseball as a vehicle for his whole family. Even Colin's mom, who never played a sport, loudly cheers for her son from the stands.
 
"It's such a great thing that this facility is here just to do multiple things," David said. "The tutoring, all the other things that go along with this facility, so it's not just baseball. It's life lessons."

"Super grateful and thankful for this program. Very happy to be a part of it," he added.
 
Positive Coaching Alliance Athlete Workshop
 
On Thursday, November 29, the student athletes attended the Positive Coaching Alliance Workshop at the Academy to learn about becoming triple impact competitors -- with the goal of improving themselves, their teammates, and the game as a whole. 
 
Topics ranged from bouncing back from mistakes to providing constructive criticism for teammates to advancing the values of sportsmanship.

Giving thanks at the Academy

Thanksgiving started early for 100 West Dallas families who received a turkey and all the trimmings for the holiday meal at the Texas Rangers MLB Youth Academy at Mercy Street Sports Complex, Presented by Toyota, on Tuesday, November 20.

While this marks the first Thanksgiving in the states for Rangers outfielder Nomar Mazara, the Dominican Republic native was happy to get in the spirit of the holiday.

While this marks the first Thanksgiving in the states for Rangers outfielder Nomar Mazara, the Dominican Republic native was happy to get in the spirit of the holiday.

"This is awesome to come here and give away food to the families," Mazara said.

Fellow Rangers Joey Gallo, Isiah Kiner-Falefa, Ronald Guzman, and Delino DeShields joined Mazara in handing out turkeys, sides, and desserts for the families to take home and prepare.

"Being able to give back to the community, that's one of the activities I really enjoy the most. For them to give me the chance to come over here and help them out, it means a lot to me," Guzman said.

Gallo agreed.

"We want to help out as much as we can. That's what you're supposed to do when you're a professional athlete. You help the community that you're in. We love it here. We all stay here and we live here," Gallo said. "That's why we come out."

The Texas Rangers and The Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation joined Power 2 Change Foundation, Buckner Foundation, Kroger, Pro Financial Services, and Coca Cola in donating the turkeys and other Thanksgiving meal ingredients to families selected by the Buckner Foundation and Dallas Housing Authority.
