The Texas Rangers continued their hot play Friday night, riding an impressive start by Martin Perez to a 4-0 win over the Cincinnati Reds at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington.

Texas Rangers General Manager Jon Daniels joined 105.3 The Fan’s New School on Wednesday morning to discuss the state of the team.
Daniels joined Ben and Skin to discusses the Rangers’ “quiet” offseason, the development of Leonys Martin and Jurickson Profar, and how the team’s approach could look at the trade deadline.
