Rangers | Mitch Moreland swats pair of homers

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 21:37:32 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland belted a pair of home runs Monday, June 29, against the Baltimore Orioles, finishing with three RBIs. It was his sixth-career multi-homer game, and first since May 2013.

Fantasy Tip: Moreland ($3,800; or 7.6% of cap) has had a fruitful June, hitting .313 (30-for-96) with four doubles, seven homers and 21 RBIs in 24 games in the current month to make him a FantasyScore steal at this price level.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland leaves game

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 20:52:45 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland (undisclosed) was lifted from the game Wednesday, June 24, against the Oakland Athletics due to an undisclosed injury.

Fantasy Tip: Moreland ($4,300; or 8.6% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore until he can officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland on the bench

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 14:53:36 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland is not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Chris Sale Friday, June 19. 2B Adam Rosales will start at first base and is batting fifth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Moreland ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) probably is sitting out because the team is facing a left-handed pitcher. Rosales ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has not seen much playing time this month but is batting .250. Owners on FantasyScore probably should be able to find better options to use.

Rangers | Prince Fielder remains out

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 16:29:16 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Prince Fielder will remain out of the starting lineup Thursday, June 18, against the Los Angeles Dodgers and RHP Zack Greinke. It wasn't surprising to see Fielder sit against LHP Clayton Kershaw Wednesday, but Fielder is out for the second straight day after doing a face plant while rounding third base Tuesday. 1B Mitch Moreland will start at first base and hit fourth in the order Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Moreland ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) has 16 hits during an 11-game hit streak, entering Thursday's contest. He's been able to crush righties for a .331 batting average this season, and Moreland is a near must-start on FantasyScore, regardless of the difficult matchup.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland sitting vs. lefty

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 11:21:01 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland is not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics left-handed SP Scott Kazmir Thursday, June 11. 1B Kyle Blanks, who was activated from the disabled list Thursday, is starting at first base and hitting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: Blanks ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) was hitting well before his injury, and he was 7-for-19 (.368) with all three of his home runs against southpaws this season before going on the DL. Kazmir has struggled since being pushed back due to a minor injury, too. Still, Blanks profiles as nothing more than a sleeper pick with power upside today.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland likes facing A's

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 10:47:42 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland has 12 home runs in his career against the Oakland Athletics, his most against any other team. He also has nine home runs at O.co Coliseum since 2010, which is the second most by any opponent.

Fantasy Tip: Betting on another home run from Moreland ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) in Oakland tonight might be a mistake. A's starter Jesse Hahn is an extreme ground-ball pitcher and has allowed just three long balls all year in 11 starts (66 2/3 frames). Temper your expectations for Moreland tonight in this pitcher-friendly venue.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland homers in win

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 04:57:52 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland had a home run Tuesday, June 9, against Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray in a 2-1 victory. It was the first time Moreland successfully hit off Gray, who had held Moreland hitless in 10 at-bats before the home run.

Fantasy Tip: Moreland ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has been part of a resurgent Texas offense that has the Rangers within striking distance of the surprising Houston Astros in the AL West. With a .305-7-22 line so far this season, Moreland is a wise investment for your lineup based on his low price and power.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland leads offense

Thu, 21 May 2015 19:49:13 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland hit a solo home run and had two RBI in the Rangers 3-1 victory over the Boston Red Sox Thursday, May 21.

Fantasy Tip: Moreland ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) hit his third home run of the season, and two singles. Moreland is a career .260-hitter against right-handed pitchers, and he bumped up that average a touch against Red Sox righty Clay Buchholz.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland activated and in lineup

Wed, 13 May 2015 15:08:34 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland (elbow) was activated from the disabled list Wednesday, May 13, and he is playing first base and batting fifth against the Kansas City Royals.

Fantasy Tip: Allow Moreland ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) to catch up to speed for a game or two before utilizing him in FantasyScore contests. He is an upside add in deep mixed leagues, as he projects to see plenty of RBI opportunities and has shown solid power and contact skills in the past.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland to start rehab assignment

Fri, 08 May 2015 11:04:56 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland (elbow) will start a three-game rehab assignment with Triple-A Round Rock Saturday, May 9, and he'll likely come off the disabled list Wednesday, May 13. 1B Kyle Blanks is currently playing first base, but the team has talked to him about playing some outfield. Blanks still has minor league options, though.

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear exactly what the Rangers will do at first base when Moreland ($2,200, 4.4% of cap) returns, but you'd have to think he'll at least be on the strong side of a platoon with Blanks, who has hit well in a small sample size in his time in Texas. Moreland is an under-the-radar value play in the right matchups at FantasyScore.
