Rangers | Chris Gimenez nursing ankle injury

Tue, 29 Mar 2016 12:08:52 -0700

Texas Rangers C Chris Gimenez (ankle) has an infection in his left ankle and might not be ready to play by opening day. He is resuming baseball activities Tuesday, March 29, though. If Gimenez is not ready to start the season, Cs Bobby Wilson or Michael McKenry will back up starting C Robinson Chirinos.

Fantasy Tip: Gimenez is nothing more than a low-end backstop in cavernous mixed, AL-only and two-catcher formats, so the potential of missing a few games to start the season doesn't have a significant fantasy impact. Wilson or McKenry would have fleeting value in those deeper leagues, if they break camp as the backup catcher.

Rangers | Two Texas catchers have surgery

Fri, 16 Oct 2015 14:45:42 -0700

Texas Rangers Cs Chris Gimenez (shoulder) and Carlos Corporan (thumb) each underwent minor surgeries. Giminez had cleanup shoulder sergery, and Corporan had surgery on his left thumb.

Fantasy Tip: Gimenez finished the season strong with a .490 slugging percentage in the second half, and he was excellent against lefties with a 1.095 OPS. He could be a late-round flier in deep mixed and AL-only leagues next spring. Corporan isn't a fantasy-worthy option outside of AL-only leagues, and even there, he is a desperation start.

Fantasy Tip: Gimenez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is only 1-for-7 against Doubront in his career, although he is batting .333 versus southpaws this year. Consider him for your FantasyScore lineups if you need some cap relief.

Rangers | Carlos Corporan set to return

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 18:22:08 -0700

The Texas Rangers will activate C Carlos Corporan (thumb) from the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, Sept. 1. He hasn't played since July 13 due to a bruised left thumb. He will likely be used as a third catcher behind Cs Chris Gimenez and Bobby Wilson.

Fantasy Tip: Corporan ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is only worth a look in FantasyScore when he is in the starting lineup, as he does have a little power potential for such a low price tag.

Fantasy Tip: Gimenez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has two home runs and three runs scored in his last three starts, and for the price, he is worth a look as a source of cap relief at FantasyScore the next time he earns a start.
