News: Baker turned in a solid 6.1 innings Friday night, limiting the Astros to two earned runs on six hits and a walk while striking out three in a winning effort. Impact: Make it back-to-back strong outings for Baker, as the veteran right-hander has allowed just three earned runs and posted a 1.15 WHIP across 11.1 innings during his last two starts. Though he has pitched well enough to earn at least one more round in the rotation, Baker is likely headed back to the Rangers' bullpen with the impending return of Derek Holland (knee) on Tuesday.(RotoWire, )

News: Baker had one of his best starts of the season Sunday, holding Kansas City to five hits and one run over five innings. Impact: Due to countless injuries in their rotation, the Rangers have had to call on Baker out of necessity more than anything else, but he came up huge Sunday. The right-hander, who still owns an unsightly 5.45 ERA in 66 innings this season, takes on the Astros in Houston in his next assignment this Friday.(RotoWire, )

News: Baker will start Sunday's game against the Royals. Impact: With Derek Holland (knee) and Yu Darvish (elbow) both taking longer to return to the mound than expected, the Rangers will essentially wave the white flag Sunday. Baker has a woeful 6.97 ERA in 20.2 innings as a starter this season, and there's no reason to expect him to be any more effective Sunday.(RotoWire, )

News: Baker could start Sunday's game against the Royals, Fox Sports Southwest's Anthony Andro reports. Impact: The Rangers' rotation is a mess, and with Yu Darvish and Derek Holland both taking longer to return from injuries than originally anticipated, Baker could see a spot start Sunday. Even so, he has a 6.97 ERA in 20.2 innings as a starter this season, so it's hard to make a case for starting Baker in any format.(RotoWire, )
