Mazara went 2-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a run scored in Saturday's 8-6 loss to the Athletics.
Mazara is 11-for-27 with a 1.337 OPS, seven extra-base hits and nine RBI in the last seven games. It's a small sample, but he's enjoying his best September in the three years he's been up in the majors. Mazara had a combined September OPS of .719 in 2016 and 2017. He talked about lingering soreness related to a thumb injury that cost him 26 games, but the right fielder is showing no signs of the thumb being problematic.
Mazara went 3-for-5 with two home runs and three RBI in Sunday's 18-4 win over the Twins.
Mazara finished off a nice weekend, going 5-for-14 with four home runs, a double and seven RBI in the three-game set against Minnesota. The two homers give him 20 for the season, the third consecutive year he's reached the 20-homer threshold. There were reports over the weekend that Mazara continues to deal with a swollen thumb, which will be in issue for the rest of the season. He told T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com that the thumb is not bothersome every day, but he needs to be careful to take good swings. "You just try to go out there and not try to go crazy, don't mess it up. When it really hurts is when I swing and miss, if I did try for a pitch. I try to put a good swing on it and get out of there; I don't want to mess it up more than it is right now," said Mazara.
Mazara went 0-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in Wednesday's loss to the Dodgers.
Mazara is 9-for-45 (.200) with a .591 OPS in 12 games since his return from a thumb injury. We can easily chalk up the downturn to the thumb, but note that Mazara has faded down the stretch in each of his previous two seasons, posting a combined second-half OPS of .712 for 2016 and 2017.
Mazara went 1-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Thursday's 8-6 win over the Angels.
Mazara, who was placed on the disabled list July 20, was activated Thursday after missing 26 games. He started in the right field and hit fourth, smacking a two-run homer in his first at-bat, Mazara's first homer since June 29.
Mazara (thumb) went 0-for-4 and played all nine innings in the field for Double-A Frisco on Wednesday.
Mazara has played back-to-back, nine-inning games in the field, which was articulated by manager Jeff Banister as the last remaining hurdle for the right fielder on his rehab assignment. That means he could be activated for Thursday's home game against the Angels. If he's activated, the Rangers will likely swap out one of the existing outfielders, with Willie Calhoun and Delino DeShields in jeopardy of losing their roster spot.
