Free-agent SP Ross Detwiler (Rangers) signed with the Atlanta Braves Friday, July 17.
Fantasy Tip: Detwiler ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) will be used out of the bullpen with the Braves, so unless there are injuries that open up a rotation spot, he has no value at FantasyScore.

Texas Rangers SP Alex Gonzalez will remain in the starting rotation past his start Saturday, May 30. SP Ross Detwiler (shoulder) will join the bullpen when he is activated from the 15-day disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez has not been dominant in Class AAA but will receive several starts with the Rangers. Owners should see how Gonzalez pitches in a game or two before considering adding him to their roster or using him on FantasyScore.

Texas Rangers SP Ross Detwiler (shoulder) will make a two-inning rehab start for Class AA Frisco Saturday, May 30.
Fantasy Tip: Detwiler ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) will need a few more rehab starts most likely if he's being prepared for a return to the starting rotation. He's only worth a roster spot in AL leagues if he's starting, otherwise he's useless to fantasy owners.

Texas Rangers SP Alex Gonzalez is likely to be called up from Class AAA Round Rock to make the start against the Boston Red Sox Saturday, May 30. Gonzalez was the team's first-round draft pick back in 2013, and he'll be making his major league debut. SP Phil Klein, who made two spot starts in the rotation, was optioned to Round Rock Thursday, May 28. SP Ross Detwiler (shoulder), who threw a bullpen session Tuesday, May 26, is unlikely to be ready. Gonzalez is 3-5 with a 4.15 ERA in eight starts in the minors this year, and he's given up four earned runs in his last 16 1/3 innings over three starts. He isn't likely to go over five innings with the Rangers this weekend.
Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez will be very cheap on FantasyScore if he comes up to make his major league debut Saturday against Boston, but he should be ignored everywhere in what's likely to be just one start for the youngster before heading back to the minors.

Texas Rangers SP Ross Detwiler (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Tuesday, May 26, but it's unknown if he'll return to the starting rotation when he's healthy.
Fantasy Tip: Detwiler ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is 0-5 on the year and is sporting a 6.95 ERA, so he's strictly an AL-only option for owners just looking for a warm body if he returns to the rotation. You should ignore him at FantasyScore.

Texas Rangers SP Ross Detwiler (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, May 17, due to shoulder inflammation.
Fantasy Tip: This may explain why Detwiler ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has been such a horrid pitcher this spring. With an 0-5 record and a 6.95 ERA, Detwiler was close to removal from the rotation. There is no word yet on who will replace Detwiler, but Detwiler can be removed from all leagues.

Texas Rangers SP Ross Detwiler has a line of 15 earned runs, 25 hits, seven walks and five strikeouts through 12 1/3 innings pitched. He also has given up five home runs.
Fantasy Tip: Detwiler ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) is on very shaky ground in Texas. Yes, the Rangers rotation is not the best, but changes can and will be made if needed. The best advice is to steer clear of Detwiler, even at that low salary, unless he turns things around.
