Texas Rangers P Wilmer Font (elbow) had surgery this week to remove a bone spur from his elbow, the team said Tuesday, Aug. 19.
Fantasy Tip: Font was once a highly touted prospect in the organization, but he has struggled to stay healthy over his career. He'll look to reboot in 2015, but at this point he is lucky to see the majors anytime soon.

Texas Rangers RP Cory Burns has begun to stand out among the team's bullpen options this spring, making three scoreless appearances. "He's doing a good job," manager Ron Washington said. "He's got deception, changes speed and can move the ball in on left-handers. He can throw his fastball on both sides of the plate." Burns throws in the high-80s with a sidearm delivery but his changeup generates swings and misses nearly 40 percent of the time. RPs Joe Nathan and Jason Frasor are the only pitchers guaranteed spots in the bullpen. RPs Tanner Scheppers (hamstring) and Wilmer Font (shoulder) are both sidelined with minor injuries, and RP Josh Lindblom hasn't fared very well so far. Burns has intrigued the Rangers ever since they acquired him from the San Diego Padres.
