KEY GAME INFORMATION
TEXAS: 2017: 78-84, tied for third place.
MANAGER: Jeff Banister (fourth season).
ADDITIONS: LHP Mike Minor, LHP Matt Moore, RHP Doug Fister, RHP Jesse Chavez, RHP Bartolo Colon, 1B Tommy Joseph.
SUBTRACTIONS: 1B-DH Mike Napoli, CF Carlos Gomez, RHP Andrew Cashner, RHP Jason Grilli, RHP A.J. Griffin, LHP Dario Alvarez.
OUTLOOK: AL West champs in each of Banister's first two seasons, the Rangers are coming off their second losing season in nine years. With most of their everyday lineup back, they should be able to hit and score runs again. But in a division with the defending World Series champs and other improved teams, Texas must depend on a revamped rotation ' maybe using six starters in some variation ' and the hope that its bullpen will be drastically improved. The Rangers scored 799 runs last year and ranked third in the majors with 237 homers. Seven returning players had at least 17. That group is led by Gallo, now the primary first baseman after playing three positions in his first full big league season. Hamels, the clear No. 1 starter now that Yu Darvish is gone, missed seven weeks in 2017 with an oblique strain and threw fewer than 200 innings for the first time since 2009. Perez could unexpectedly be ready for opening day after breaking his non-pitching elbow in a mishap on his ranch in Venezuela before Christmas. Fister didn't pitch his first major league game last season until June, and Minor hasn't started since 2014 with the Braves.
OAKLAND: 2017: 75-87, fifth place.
MANAGER: Bob Melvin (eighth season).
ADDITIONS: OF Stephen Piscotty, C Jonathan Lucroy, OF Dustin Fowler, RHP Trevor Cahill, RHP Emilio Pagan, RHP Yusmeiro Petit, LHP Ryan Buchter.
SUBTRACTIONS: INF Ryon Healy, RHP Jesse Hahn, OF Jaycob Brugman.
OUTLOOK: The A's have followed up three straight playoff appearances with last-place finishes the past three seasons. There are signs of a potential turnaround but rebuilding will still take some time, especially in a division with the defending World Series champions and other possible contenders. The bullpen should be improved with the additions of Pagan, Petit and Buchter. The strength of the team is power. Davis leads the way with 85 homers the past two seasons, ranking second in the majors during that span to Giancarlo Stanton's 86. Olson made a big splash with 24 homers in 189 at-bats, a rate topped over a whole season only twice ' when Mark McGwire and Barry Bonds each set the single-season home run record. The A's added depth to the lineup this spring by signing Lucroy. One of the most intriguing players will be Fowler, who played one inning in the majors for the Yankees before blowing out his knee and then getting traded to Oakland for pitcher Sonny Gray. Fowler adds needed athleticism and defense in the outfield as the A's look to build a foundation for the future.
PREVIEW
Rangers try to slow down A's, Davis
 

OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Texas Rangers' hottest pitcher, Mike Minor, has the unenviable task of trying to slow down one of baseball's hottest hitters, the Oakland Athletics' Khris Davis, when the two American League West clubs conclude a three-game series Wednesday afternoon.

Davis doomed the Rangers for a second consecutive night Tuesday, smacking his 38th home run of the season, a two-run shot, as part of a three-RBI performance in a 6-0 victory.

Davis also homered in Monday's 9-0 romp, and now has nine home runs in 15 games against Texas this season.

A's manager Bob Melvin shrugged his shoulders when informed of Davis' dominance of the Rangers after Tuesday's win, insisting he was even more pleased with his clean-up hitter's two-out, two-strike RBI single than his homer.

"Just as impressive are his RBIs," Melvin said. "He's getting better. Now he's driving in runs with two-out singles. That club wasn't in his bag for a while."

Davis' three RBIs raised his season total to 102, giving him three straight years with 100 or more. He established a career-high last year with 110.

He has 36 more games in which to get the nine RBIs he needs to surpass his personal best. And he has four more shots at the Rangers, against whom he has hit nine homers with a whopping 24 RBIs in the clubs' first 15 meetings.

Davis will dig in Wednesday against Minor (9-6, 4.61 ERA), against whom he has one career home run and two other hits in eight at-bats.

Minor collared Davis with an 0-for-2 in July when he pitched the first five innings of a 13-10 home loss to the A's. One of the outs was a deep fly to left field.

Minor left that game with a 4-2 lead after five innings, only to see the Rangers' bullpen implode.

The 30-year-old has pitched well in his last 11 starts, going 5-2 with a 3.53 ERA.

He sees outings like Wednesday's as a potential springboard to future success.

"The first half of the season was pretty bad," he said of a 4-4 start with a 5.76 ERA. "The last couple of weeks or month I think I've pitched better. But I'm actually looking forward to the offseason to get better and come back next year and have a complete, good full season."

Minor is 1-1 with a 3.68 ERA in five games, including two starts, against the A's in his career.

Oakland will sent right-hander Edwin Jackson (4-2, 2.58) to the mound in search of a three-game sweep.

The veteran pitched his worst game of the season at Texas in July in his only previous start against the Rangers this year, failing to get out of the fifth inning after giving up five runs and seven hits.

One of the hits was a three-run homer by Rangers catcher Robinson Chirinos.

The A's rallied to win the game 6-5.

Jackson has started eight games against the Rangers in his career, going 2-3 with a 4.56 ERA.
