  • Rangers' Jonah Heim: Spring debut one week away

    Rangers manager Bruce Bochy said Heim won't make his first Cactus League start until Feb. 28 versus the Dodgers, Jeff Wilson of RangersToday.com reports.

    Heim hasn't dealt with any health issues upon reporting to spring training, but the Rangers are being careful not to overextend the catcher during camp after he served as the team's primary backstop in its run to the franchise's first World Series title this past fall. The 28-year-old should be able to get enough at-bats in during the spring to prepare himself for the start of the season, though Texas could still look to lighten his workload behind the dish to some degree early on in the campaign. Manager Bruce Bochy suggested Wednesday that the Rangers may look to carry three catchers on the Opening Day roster, with Andrew Knizner, Sam Huff and non-roster invitee Andrew Knapp in contention for backup roles behind Heim.

  • Rangers' Jonah Heim: Agrees to deal with Rangers

    Heim signed a one-year, $3.1 million contract with the Rangers on Thursday to avoid arbitration, Kennedi Landry of MLB.com reports.

    Heim is in the first year of arbitration and was rewarded for a strong 2023 season. He was aided by a strong supporting cast in the Rangers lineup and finished with 95 RBI, but he still posted a career-best .755 OPS while also improving his ISO for the third consecutive campaign.

  • Rangers' Jonah Heim: Batting ninth in Game 5

    Heim is starting at catcher and batting ninth Friday in Game 5 of the ALCS versus the Astros.

    He's part of the shakeup in the bottom half of the Rangers' batting order, as he previously has hit sixth eight times and fifth once in Texas' first nine games this postseason. Heim collected exactly one hit in each of those first seven contests but is hitless his last two times out.

  • Rangers' Jonah Heim: Knocks in three

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

    Heim had a two-run single in the third inning then walked with the bases loaded in the fourth, helping the Rangers to clinch a playoff berth. 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.

    Heim went 1-for-3 with a walk, a home run, three RBI and a second run scored in Wednesday's 15-5 win over Boston.

    Heim was productive in two straight wins over Boston, hitting two doubles and a home run with five RBI between Tuesday and Wednesday. He's slumped overall since his return from the injured list Aug. 13 with a .202 average and .619 OPS, but the catcher's bat has shown life of late. Heim is batting .273 (9-for-33) with three homers, three doubles, 13 RBI and six runs scored over the last nine games.

  • Rangers' Jonah Heim: Sitting amid struggles

    Heim is not in the lineup for Sunday's game at Cleveland.

    Austin Hedges will start at catcher and bat ninth as Mitch Garver serves as the Rangers' designated hitter and cleanup man. Heim has slashed just .191/.223/.326 in 94 plate appearances since he returned Aug. 13 from a two-week absence to heal a strained tendon in his left wrist.

  • Rangers' Jonah Heim: Goes deep in win

    Heim went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Thursday's 9-2 win over the Blue Jays.

    Heim homered in the third inning, giving him RBI in four straight contests. He went 6-for-18 with two home runs and eight RBI during the four-game sweep of Toronto. Heim's wrist injury has hurt his production, but his performance against the Blue Jays is an encouraging sign. The injury has not impacted his playing time, however, as he's started at catcher for 11 of 13 games during the month of September,
