Texas Rangers C Brett Nicholas was optioned to Class AAA Round Rock Wednesday, May 4.
Fantasy Tip: Nicholas was 9-for-35 with a respectable .876 OPS, but Texas also has Bryan Holaday and Bobby Wilson to work behind the plate. Holaday and Wilson project to split starts at catcher, but neither boast much fantasy appeal. Holaday has a career .238/.276/.319 slash line, and Wilson owns a career .203/.266/.299 line. They're both desperation options in deep seasonal leagues.

Texas Rangers C Bryan Holaday is not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi Monday, April 25. C Brett Nicholas will start at catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Nicholas is hitting .222 in his limited plate appearances this season and is not a strong fantasy option.

Texas Rangers C Bryan Holaday is not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Mat Latos Sunday, April 24. C Brett Nicholas will start at catcher and is batting ninth in the lineup.
Fantasy Tip: Nicholas has at least one hit in three of his four games this season and is batting .286 on the season. Nicholas is a starting candidate in AL-only leagues but probably can be avoided in most mixed leagues.

Texas Rangers Cs Bryan Holaday and Brett Nicholas will share time behind the plate, and the team is not likely to look outside the organization for a catcher following Robinson Chirinos' (forearm) injury.
Fantasy Tip: Holaday is the best add in cavernous mixed, two-catcher and AL-only leagues, and he showed some promise with a .281 batting average and .453 slugging percentage through 65 plate appearances with Detroit last year. View Nicholas as a desperation add in those deep formats for now, but whoever hits and plays the best defense will likely see the bulk of starts.

Texas Rangers C Brett Nicholas was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock Sunday, April 10.
Fantasy Tip: Nicholas should serve as the No. 2 catcher for the Rangers and will see limited playing time. He likely will only have fantasy value in deeper AL-only leagues.

The Texas Rangers could consider C Chris Gimenez, C Robinson Chirinos and 2B Donnie Murphy as options for their backup first baseman job. Gimenez has played 22 career games at first base, Chirinos has played five games and Murphy has never played the position in a game. 1B Brett Nicholas and 2B Adam Rosales have been playing first base at Triple-A Round Rock.
