Stock Report: Adrian Beltre up, Scott Feldman down
Matt Harrison: He continues to make his case for All-Star Game inclusion and has one more chance to do that tonight. At this point, he deserves to get the nod and if the players don't put him in, manager Ron Washington should.
Ian Kinsler: He's hitting .323 the last week with five extra-base hits and six runs scored. Kinsler is the spark that makes the offense go and it's not a coincidence that this club is hitting the ball better just as Kinsler is heating up.
Josh Hamilton: I think it's a great time to buy stock in Hamilton because while it's down for the week, he's showing signs of patience at the plate and getting things together. Still, when you hit just .185 in the last seven games, you're on the "stock down" list.
Heat: The temperatures are getting oppressive out there and that can have a cumulative effect. Yes, the Rangers are used to it. But do you ever get used to playing three-plus hour baseball games in 100-degree heat?
