Rangers' Jonah Heim: Batting ninth in Game 5

Heim went 1-for-4 with a walk and three RBI in Saturday's 6-1 win over the Mariners.

Texas can clinch the division title with a win in Sunday's season finale, which means an important piece like Heim could start one more game. The catcher's rate statistics fell off following an August wrist injury, but Heim has remained productive as a run producer, delivering 25 runs over 40 games since returning from the injury. For the season, Heim has a .375 batting average, .705 slugging percentage and a 1.117 OPS with runners in scoring position.... See More ... See Less

Rangers' Jonah Heim: Cleared to face lefties
Heim took batting practice from the right side of the plate Sunday and has been cleared to make starts against left-handed pitching, Jeff Wilson of RangersToday.com reports.
When he was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Aug. 13, Heim had been limited to batting from the left side of the plate since he hadn't fully healed from a strained wrist tendon. Three weeks later, the switch-hitting Heim looks like he'll now have the platoon advantage in each of his plate appearances as the regular season winds down. Heim will hit from the left side of the plate to start Sunday's contest while he starts at catcher and bats sixth with the Rangers opposing Twins right-hander Kenta Maeda.... See More ... See Less

In that span, he's gone an awful 3-for-30 (.100) with a 2:8 BB:K, a dry spell that saw him on the bench Friday and Saturday. Heim has been one of the better offensive catchers in baseball this season with a .265/.322/.455 slash line, 15 homers, 74 RBI, 51 runs scored and a pair of stolen bases over 101 contests. Mitch Garver hasn't been bad either, and he could push for time behind the dish if Heim doesn't get back on track soon.... See More ... See Less
