Rangers' A.J. Griffin: Five one-run innings versus Royals
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Griffin threw five innings of one-run ball Sunday against the Royals, striking out three and walking two en route to a no-decision.

Griffin had been rocked for 11 runs in 10 innings over his last two starts, but he kept the Royals in check Sunday, as he limited the baserunners against and was only scored upon via a solo homer in the fourth by Kendrys Morales. Sunday's results were better, but Griffin has still yet to throw more than five innings in any start since he returned from an extended absence due to a shoulder problem, and he'll need to begin to go deeper into games if he is to remain in the rotation for a Rangers club that has already asked a lot of its bullpen. He is scheduled to take on this same Royals club at home Friday.

Rangers' A.J. Griffin: Gives up five runs in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Griffin allowed five runs on four hits and three walks over five innings in a no-decision Monday against the Angels.

Griffin still has yet to throw more than five innings in a start since his return to the rotation June 25. His ERA is up to 4.26 as he has allowed at least one home run in each of his five starts in that span. He also has walked 10 batters and hit two more in just 23.1 innings in that span, and allowing that many free baserunners would be a recipe for disaster even if he wasn't getting touched up for home runs with regularity.

Rangers' A.J. Griffin: Suffers first loss Sunday versus Twins
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Griffin (3-1) gave up six earned runs on nine hits and a walk over five innings in Sunday's 15-5 loss to the Twins. He struck out three.

The 28-year-old right-hander got through the first three frames unscathed before Kennys Vargas blasted a solo homer in the fourth . A Joe Mauer single that plated Kurt Suzuki made it 2-0 in favor of the Twins in the fifth, and then Max Kepler made Griffin pay for loading the bases by launching a 393-foot shot to right center later in the inning with two out, bringing home Eduardo Escobar, Mauer and Vargas. After winning three of his first four decisions in 2016, Griffin had five straight no-decisions until Sunday's loss, and the six earned runs he gave up against the Twins served as the most he'd allowed in any start. He's also given up a homer in four straight trips to the mound and hasn't made it past the fifth inning since May 2 versus the Blue Jays. Griffin will look to right the ship following the All-Star break.

Rangers' A.J. Griffin: Inefficient Tuesday against Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin (3-0) did not factor in the decision against the Red Sox on Tuesday. He pitched four innings, allowing two runs, seven hits and three walks while striking out three.

In his third start since returning from the DL, Griffin once again struggled with his efficiency. He needed 96 pitches, the most since being activated, just to get through a season-low four innings (not including his injury-shortened start from May 7). He'll get the ball once more when he takes the hill Sunday against the Twins.

Rangers' A.J. Griffin: Strikes out eight in no-decision versus Yanks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

In his second start since returning from the DL, Griffin (shoulder) tossed five innings, allowing one run on two hits while walking two and striking out eight in a no-decision Thursday against the Yankees.

Griffin's lone mistake, in an otherwise outstanding performance, was a fifth-inning solo homer given up to Didi Gregorius. His eight strikeouts were one short of the 28-year-old's season high set on May 2 against the Blue Jays. The righty has a sweet-looking 2.93 and 42:17 K:BB through 43 innings this season.
