|Lisalverto Bonilla to start Friday with Scott Baker still out |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(9/17/14) Rangers pitcher Lisalverto Bonilla will make another start Friday with Scott Baker still sidelined, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Baker indicated that he has improved but is not ready for a starting assignment. Bonilla delivered a quality start and earned a win in his first start Saturday.
|Scott Baker will probably miss another start |

(9/15/14) Rangers starting pitcher Scott Baker, who missed his last start Saturday against the Braves with triceps tendinitis, doesn't look like he'll be ready to make his next start Friday at the Angels, according to MLB.com. Interim manager Tim Bogar has already penciled in Lisalverto Bonilla for that game.
"I talked to him a little bit, he's still sore, he's still dealing with it, and at this point, he's got to get out there and be able to throw and that's in five days or six days, so you don't know what's going to happen," Bogar said of Baker.

(9/12/14) Veteran Rangers right-hander Scott Baker, whose career has been derailed by injuries, has been scratched from his Saturday start against Atlanta in favor of Lisalverto Bonilla. Baker is dealing with triceps tendinitis.
Baker won two of his last three starts, but gave up five runs in 4 1/3 innings in his last outing against Seattle.
|Scott Baker stuck with the loss Friday |

(9/5/14) Rangers pitcher Scott Baker had a rough start Friday against the Mariners.
Baker allowed five runs on four hits over 4 1/3 innings. He struck out three and walked one during the outing. Home runs were a big issue for Baker. All five runs he gave up came on the long ball. The first dinger came in the second inning. After a leadoff walk, Baker gave up a two-run shot to Kendrys Morales. The remaining two home runs came in the fifth inning. Mike Zunino hit a solo blast early in the frame, and Brad Miller followed it up with a two-run shot later. Baker was pulled after the Miller home run.
With the loss, Baker dropped to 3-4. He’ll take on the Angels in his next start.
|Scott Baker goes six-plus frames for win No. 3 |

(8/30/14) Rangers pitcher Scott Baker turned in a quality start and received more than enough run support for the win Friday night against Houston, improving to 3-3 on the year. The right-hander yielded two runs on six hits and one walk while striking out three over 6 1/3 innings of a 13-6 victory.
Over his last two starts covering 11 1/3 innings, Baker has allowed three earned runs. He owns a 5.23 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP over 72 1/3 innings of work. His next start will come Wednesday at Kansas City.
|Scott Baker needed nearly two full seasons to come back from Tommy John surgery, making just three starts for the Cubs late last year. Fortunately, he pitched well enough in those starts, exhibiting the same command that made him a perennial sleeper with the Twins, to compete for a rotation spot with the Mariners this spring. It's not a slam dunk with James Paxton, a top prospect overdue for a full-time rotation spot at age 25, and Erasmo Ramirez, a big part of the Mariners' future in his own right, in the picture, but the early injuries to Hisashi Iwakuma and Taijuan Walker, who both figure to miss at least a month, put him on the inside track. Of course, Baker is also coming back to a much deeper starting pitcher pool -- one where his seven-plus strikeouts per nine innings don't set him apart and his low WHIP doesn't make up for a four-something ERA. With a rotation spot, Baker is a deep sleeper with the potential to contribute in mixed leagues at some point, but given the uncertainty, he's probably no more than a $1 player in AL-only leagues.
