Texas Rangers RP Keone Kela (elbow) was placed on the disabled list with right elbow impingement Thursday, April 21. In a corresponding move, RP Phil Klein was recalled from Class AAA Round Rock.
Fantasy Tip: With Kela on the shelf, Sam Dyson and Jake Diekman are the closers in waiting behind incumbent Shawn Tolleson. Kela isn't worth stashing in the majority of seasonal leagues. At this stage, Klein isn't on the fantasy radar.

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 Phil Klein will make the start against the Boston Red Sox Wednesday, May 20.
Fantasy Tip: Klein will be as cheap as they come for FantasyScore users on Wednesday. Klein, a right-hander, has a 7.71 ERA in six relief outings for the Rangers this year, and he should be avoided everywhere in daily games for his start tomorrow.
