  • White Sox's Jared Walsh: Latches on with ChiSox

    Walsh signed a minor-league contract with the White Sox on Tuesday, LaMond Pope of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Walsh elected free agency after being removed from the Rangers' 40-man roster earlier this month. The 30-year-old hit just .226/.317/.321 with one home run through 60 plate appearances with Texas. He'll go to extended spring training for now before eventually reporting to Triple-A Charlotte, where he'll give the White Sox some veteran protection at first base.

  • Jared Walsh: Enters free agency

    Walsh cleared waivers Wednesday and elected to become a free agent.

    Walsh was designated for assignment by the Rangers on Saturday to make room for Nathaniel Lowe's return from the IL, and the 30-year-old first baseman will now take his chances on the open market. He is slashing .226/.317/.321 with a home and seven RBI through 60 plate appearances on the year and should be able to at least secure a minor-league deal with another organization.

  • Rangers' Jared Walsh: DFA'd by Rangers

    The Rangers designated Walsh for assignment Saturday.

    Walsh will lose his spot on the roster with Nathaniel Lowe (oblique) returning from the injured list Saturday. The 30-year-old slashed .226/.317/.321 across 60 plate appearances during his time with Texas and could attract interest on the waiver wire from any team in need of help at first base.

  • Rangers' Jared Walsh: Out against lefty

    Walsh is not in the starting lineup for Friday's game against Atlanta.

    Walsh will sit for a third consecutive contest, as Atlanta will start left-hander Chris Sale on Friday. The righty-hitting Ezequiel Duran will start at first base and bat sixth in the lineup.

  • Rangers' Jared Walsh: Sitting against righty

    Walsh is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Tigers.

    The lefty-hitting Walsh will close out the series in Detroit with two consecutive absences from the lineup, though Thursday's is more noteworthy since the Tigers are bringing a right-hander (Kenta Maeda) to the hill. Walsh has been operating in a strong-side platoon role at first base all season, but he's mustered an underwhelming .638 OPS through 60 plate appearances and looks at risk of losing work to Ezequiel Duran.

  • Rangers' Jared Walsh: Out against southpaw

    Walsh is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game in Detroit.

    Left-hander Tarik Skubal is the Tigers' starting pitcher Wednesday, so the lefty-hitting Walsh will begin Wednesday's game on the bench. Ezequiel Duran will play first base.

  • Rangers' Jared Walsh: On bench Sunday

    Walsh is out of the lineup for Sunday's game at Houston.

    Walsh is 2-for-18 with four walks, four RBI and eight strikeouts over his past seven games, and he'll take a seat against Astros righty Cristian Javier. Ezequiel Duran will start at first base and bat eighth Sunday.

  • Rangers' Jared Walsh: Retreats to bench versus lefty

    Walsh is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Athletics.

    With Oakland bringing a lefty (JP Sears) to the hill Thursday, the lefty-hitting Walsh will take a seat for the second time in the series. Ezequiel Duran will step in for Walsh at first base and will bat sixth.

  • Rangers' Jared Walsh: Steps out of lineup

    Walsh is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against Oakland.

    Walsh posted an .842 OPS while starting the past nine games but will head to the bench Tuesday against Athletics lefty Alex Wood. Ezequiel Duran will shift to first base while Davis Wendzel starts at the hot corner.

  • Rangers' Jared Walsh: Logs two hits in loss

    Walsh went 2-for-4 with a run scored in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Rays.

    The lefty-batting Walsh made a fourth consecutive start at first base, including one against a lefty, and has hit safely in all four, going 7-for-18 with two extra-base hits, three RBI and five runs. The season started as a likely platoon of Walsh (against righties) and Ezequiel Duran (lefties) while primary first baseman Nathaniel Lowe (oblique) recovers. However, third baseman Josh Jung's wrist injury, which is expected to keep him sidelined for at least six weeks, may require Duran to help fill that void.

  • Rangers' Jared Walsh: Homer, three hits in win

    Walsh started at first base and went 3-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and two additional runs scored in Saturday's 11-2 win over the Cubs.

    Walsh's two-run blast in the second inning wiped out Chicago's 2-0 lead, as the Rangers thumped their way to an easy win. The left-handed hitting Walsh got the start against a right-hander after Ezequiel Duran played first base in Thursday's opener against a lefty. Those two are handling the position until Nathaniel Lowe (oblique) is ready to play.

  • Rangers' Jared Walsh: Sitting versus lefty

    Walsh is out of the lineup Thursday against the Cubs.

    The Cubs will send southpaw Justin Steele to the mound to start their season, so the lefty-hitting Walsh will begin Opening Day in the dugout. Ezequiel Duran will instead start at first base and bat seventh.

  • Rangers' Jared Walsh: Added to big-league roster

    The Rangers selected Walsh's contract from Triple-A Round Rock on Thursday.

    Walsh was able to win a spot on Texas' Opening Day roster after putting up an .827 OPS with three home runs this spring. He's likely in line to see most of the at-bats at first base against right-handed pitching while Nathaniel Lowe (oblique) is on the shelf.

  • Rangers' Jared Walsh: Favored for Opening Day roster

    Walsh is expected to be named to the 26-man roster Tuesday, Dave Sessions of MLB.com reports.

    Walsh and Justin Foscue battled it out during spring training -- each recorded more than 50 plate appearances during Cactus League games -- but the Rangers are apparently leaning toward Walsh, a non-roster invitee that needs to be added to the 40-man roster. That much was confirmed Monday, when the transactions page of MiLB.com posted the Rangers had optioned Foscue to Triple-A Round Rock. Ultimately, it was Walsh's wealth of experience at first base that was the deciding factor. With Nathaniel Lowe (oblique) set to open the season on the injured list, the Rangers wanted a more experienced first baseman, and Foscue only started playing there this spring. The right-handed hitting Ezequiel Duran will serve as the backup and possible platoon mate for the lefty-swinging Walsh. Texas faces left-hander Justin Steele on Opening Day, which may dictate that Duran draws the start in that matchup.

  • Rangers' Jared Walsh: Set up for strong-side platoon role

    The Rangers prefer to use a platoon of Walsh and Ezequiel Duran at first base while Nathaniel Lowe (oblique) is sidelined, Jeff Wilson of RangersToday.com reports.

    The Duran part of the platoon will be in effect only if he's not needed to fill in at shortstop for Corey Seager (groin), but for now there's optimism Seager will be ready. Walsh appears set to start at first base versus righties initially either way, as he's had an impressive camp as a non-roster invitee in slashing .286/.419/.571 with three home runs. It could just be a short-term gig for Walsh, although if he gets off to a nice start he might be an option at designated hitter after Lowe returns.

  • Rangers' Jared Walsh: Extends spring hit streak

    Walsh started at first base and went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's spring game against Kansas City.

    On the day the Rangers announced Nathaniel Lowe (oblique) could miss Opening Day, Walsh filled in at first base. He's hit safely in all eight Cactus League games he's played, going 8-for-20 with three walks, a double, two home runs, four RBI and four runs. If Walsh is playing his way onto the team, the Rangers will need to create a spot on the 40-man roster. The lefty batter could fill the strong side of a platoon at designated hitter once Lowe is healthy.

  • Rangers' Jared Walsh: Frontrunner to fill in for Lowe

    Walsh could be the leading candidate to fill in for the injured Nathaniel Lowe (oblique) at first base for the Rangers, Jeff Wilson of RangersToday.com reports.

    In camp as a non-roster invitee, Walsh is sporting a 1.147 OPS with one home run and a 4:3 K:BB over his first seven Cactus League games, thrusting himself into the conversation to replace Lowe. Justin Foscue looks like the other likely replacement, although he's also in the mix at designated hitter. Manager Bruce Bochy listed Blaine Crim, Ezequiel Duran, Josh Smith and Davis Wendzel as possibilities at first base as well. Walsh had a breakout 2021 season with the Angels but has flopped since then due to injuries and other health issues, posting a .613 OPS and 32.1 percent strikeout rate across 572 plate appearances at the major-league level. The 30-year-old is starting at first base and batting third for Texas in Friday's Cactus League game versus the Royals.

  • Rangers' Jared Walsh: Gets NRI from Rangers

    Walsh signed a minor-league contract with the Rangers on Thursday that includes an invitation to spring training.

    Walsh had a breakout 2021 campaign when he slugged 29 home runs and made the All-Star team. Since then, though, he's managed a lowly .613 OPS and 32.1 percent strikeout rate across 572 plate appearances at the major-league level. The 30-year-old will compete for a reserve role with the Rangers but almost surely will report to Triple-A Round Rock to start 2024 as he looks to get his career back on track.

  • Jared Walsh: Hits free agency

    Walsh elected free agency Monday.

    It's the second time since early August that Walsh has been outrighted off the Angels' 40-man roster. The 30-year-old posted a lowly .494 OPS over 39 games in 2023 and simply hasn't been the same player since his breakout 2021 season.
