    Rangers' Dane Dunning: On tap for another start

    Dane Dunning is listed as the Texas Rangers' probable starting pitcher for Sunday's game in Baltimore.While making his first start since Aug. 20 earlier this week against the Yankees, Dunning was limited to 2.2 innings and 57 pitches, with Kolby Allard working behind him as a primary pitcher. Dunning should have a looser restriction with his pitch count Sunday, but the Rangers could still elect to keep him in a tandem with Allard. If that arrangement holds, Allard would probably be more likely than Dunning to factor into any decision.

    Rangers' Dane Dunning: Languishes in starting role

    Dane Dunning (5-9) was the pitcher of record in Tuesday's 7-1 loss to the Yankees after giving up two runs on three hits and a walk while striking out three in 2.2 innings.Dunning picked up his first start since Aug. 20, after he had previously made two relief appearances earlier this month following a three-week stint on the COVID-19 injured list. Because he didn't get fully stretched out for starting duty while working out of the bullpen, Dunning was pulled Tuesday after 57 pitches, but his poor showing up to that point likely wouldn't have resulted in manager Chris Woodward keeping him in the game much longer. Kolby Allard covered 4.1 innings in long relief Tuesday, and the two could continue to work in a tandem when Dunning's next turn in the rotation comes up Sunday in Baltimore.

    Rangers' Dane Dunning: Back in starting role Tuesday

    The Texas Rangers list Dane Dunning as their starting pitcher for Tuesday's game against the Yankees.Dunning will be picking up his first start since Aug. 20, after he spent about two and a half weeks on the COVID-19 injured list before returning in a relief role once he was activated Sept. 10. Because Dunning didn't get fully stretched out for starting duty during the idle period, the Rangers have been having him build up his pitch count over his two appearances out of the bullpen. In his most recent outing Sept. 15, Dunning covered two innings (43 pitches), so he likely won't be asked to work deep into Tuesday's start. Glenn Otto could be an option to piggyback Dunning, if the Rangers elect to go that route.

    Rangers' Dane Dunning: Throws relief inning

    Dane Dunning allowed one hit and struck out one over a scoreless relief inning in Friday's 10-5 loss to Oakland.Dunning was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list Friday and, as manager Chris Woodward told Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News, the plan was to have him throw an inning of relief Friday. Dunning, who should get another three or four starts before the end of the season, will gradually build up to throw 80 or 90 pitches. That aligns with the organization's season-long plan for Dunning, who has been kept on a pitch limit. The right-hander entered 2021 having thrown just 34 innings since 2018.

    Rangers' Dane Dunning: Tabbed for one inning Friday

    Dane Dunning plans to return from the COVID-19 injured list Friday to pitch an inning in the Texas Rangers' series opener in Oakland, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports.Dunning has been on the COVID-19 IL since Aug. 25, with his two-plus-week layoff suggesting that he most likely tested positive for the virus. The right-hander is in the process of regaining conditioning, and he appears to be feeling good after he tossed 23 pitches in a simulated game Monday. The Rangers' plans for Dunning over the rest of the season aren't entirely clear, but if he does in fact return Friday, he'll likely be limited to a bullpen role or working as an opener in front of Glenn Otto. Since Texas isn't sending Dunning out on a minor-league rehab assignment in which he would be able to build up his pitch count, he may not fill a traditional starting role for the remaining three weeks of September.
