How seasoned rookie Brandon Mann achieved his big-league dream after 17 years, a stint in Japan and a suspension

Mann reached his goal after 267 minor league appearances, three seasons in independent leagues, two seasons in Japan and one suspension for use of a banned substance.

“It means everything,” said Mann, who got the final five outs in the Rangers’ 6-1 loss to Houston at Minute Maid Park. “Lots of reflecting on the journey of where it’s been. This is pretty awesome.

“I always told myself I was a big leaguer. To keep grinding for that opportunity, you have to believe that you are.”
