Three Round Rock Express players honored by Rangers


Three players who appeared with the Round Rock Express this past season have received organizational awards from the Texas Rangers.

Left-hander Yohander Mendez was named the recipient of the Nolan Ryan Pitcher of the Year award. Mendez, a 21-year-old Venezuelan, was 4-1 with a 0.57 ERA for the Express, allowing two earned runs in 31 1/3 innings.

Tim Lincecum is the only player in the history of the Pacific Coast League to post a lower ERA over at least 30 innings pitched.

Mendez was 12-3 with a 2.19 ERA across three minor-league levels in 2016.

First baseman Ronald Guzman earned the honor of Minor League Defender of the Year while right-hander John Fasola was chosen as the Minor League Reliever of the Year.

Guzman posted a .989 fielding percentage between Double-A and Triple-A. He made two errors in 20 games for Round Rock.

Fasola was 5-1 with a 3.18 ERA and 11 saves across three levels in 2016. He struck out 11 in nine innings while making seven appearances for the Express.

The Rangers’ winter caravan will make a stop at Dell Diamond on Tuesday. For ticket information, check www.roundrockexpress.com or call 512-255-2255.

NBA midseason award picks

Is the NBA's MVP always the league's best player? No. If that were the case, Michael Jordan would have at least a dozen MVPs and Shaquille O'Neal and Kobe Bryant wouldn't have just one each.  This year's MVP race figures to be as tight as any in recent memory.  As of now, it's hard not to vote for Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook. ...
