Former Texas Tech baseball star and current Texas Rangers’ third basemen, Josh Jung, has suffered a broken thumb that could put an end to what was a stellar rookie season for the all-star starter. What’s more, this freak injury could have long-lasting ramifications for the Rangers on multiple fronts.

Of course, missing Jung is a huge blow to Texas’ hopes of winning the American League West, a division that the Rangers lead by only 2.
