Latest The Rangers Items
Cliff Lee last saw the Texas Rangers when he pitched for them in the World Series.
The death of Rangers enforcer Derek Boogaard was an accident, due to a toxic mix of alcohol and the powerful painkiller oxycodone. The Hennepin County Medical Examiner announced Boogaard's cause of death Friday, saying it was unclear exactly when the 28-year-old died. Boogaard was found dead in his Minneapolis apartment last Friday, five months after he sustained a season-ending concussion with the New York Rangers.
The Chicago White Sox put third baseman Mark Teahen on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday with a strained right oblique muscle and promoted infielder Dallas McPherson from Triple-A Charlotte.
Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell on Thursday condemned the "vile, sustained and relentless attacks" on his club on Thursday.
Oakland Athletics outfielder Josh Willingham was suspended for one game after making contact with an umpire during a weekend dispute.
Right wing Mike Knuble is back on the ice for the Washington Capitals in Game 2 against the Tampa Bay Lightning after missing three consecutive playoff games.

All of them have broken the Caps' hearts in OT (sometimes in quadruple OT), and there are plenty more where they came from.
Mike Knuble is about as dependable a guy as there is in the Capitals' locker room. He consistently scores 20 goals a season, cleans up in front and provides a veteran voice for a young team.
Every play and decision this time of year can turn the tide of a game or even a series. Capitals veteran Mike Knuble even said Game 3 against the Rangers on Sunday afternoon at Madison Square Garden was a "coin flip."
