Rangers | Leonys Martin will not start

Sat, 23 May 2015 08:05:26 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Leonys Martin is not in the starting lineup Saturday, May 23. OF Delino DeShields Jr. will move to center field while OF Jake Smolinski will start in left field.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return soon. Smolinski has seen limited playing time this season and should not be an option for fantasy owners.

Rangers | Kyle Blanks to the DL

Fri, 22 May 2015 13:41:02 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Kyle Blanks (undisclosed) went on the 15-day disabled list with a cyst in an undisclosed location Friday, May 22. OF Jake Smolinski will return to the majors to replace him.

Fantasy Tip: Blanks ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) lost his everyday role as a starter at first base once Mitch Moreland came off the DL recently, so he had become an afterthought at FantasyScore. Smolinski is likely to be a bench option with Delino DeShields Jr. moving into a starting role in the outfield and with Josh Hamilton's (shoulder) debut on the horizon next week.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo riding pine

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 13:36:40 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 28. OF Jake Smolinski is starting in right field and hitting second in the batting order against Seattle Mariners SP J.A. Happ.

Fantasy Tip: Choo ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is off to a terrible start in 2015, hitting only .096 (5-for-52) with a home run and five RBI. In shallow mixed leagues, he's probably not worth a roster spot while he's struggling. Smolinski ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has just four hits in 36 at-bats on the season, and he's another weak FantasyScore play on this Tuesday night.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo sitting out Wednesday

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 09:41:50 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo is not in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago Wednesday, April 15. OF Jake Smolinski is starting in right field and hitting fifth in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: Smolinski ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) has fared very well against southpaws in his young career, hitting .400 against them with two of his three home runs in 25 at-bats. He's a leap of faith at FantasyScore today, but it could pay off against Santiago.
