The Rangers touted wave of young pitching talent has absorbed "a pretty big body blow," with news that 2016 first-round draft pick Cole Ragans is out for the year and it's entirely possible the same may eventually be the case for 2017 Minor League Pitcher of the Year Kyle Cody. The Rangers announced Sunday what seemed inevitable from the moment Ragans walked off a mound Thursday: He has a tear in the right ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow.
SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Opening day, with its giant flags and flyovers, is all about American spirit. This year, Robinson Chirinos is instead counting on the spirit of America. On March 29, Chirinos will be behind the plate for the Rangers' season opener with Houston at Globe Life Park in Arlington. Meanwhile, in Houston, his sister Rusmery Thais Chirinos de Blanco will be pleading for the safe refuge of political asylum in the United States.
SURPRISE, Ariz. -- The last obstacle that that got in the way of Martin Perez's pitching career was an obstinate, ornery and rambunctious bull. Perez had the bull killed. And then he ate him. "It tasted good, too," Perez said rather gleefully Sunday after five sharp innings against the Los Angeles in his first spring training game of the year. "Good meat." Now, he may be about to gobble up Bartolo Colon's chances of becoming the major league's all-time wins leader among Latin American natives.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
