Rangers | Josh Hamilton sits out fourth straight

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 09:25:24 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton (knee) is out of the lineup for the fourth straight game Wednesday, Aug. 19. OF Ryan Strausborger will start his fourth straight game and bat ninth against Seattle Mariners SP Mike Montgomery.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton's knee is still sore, and he could be headed to the disabled list. Strausborger ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) has five hits, including a home run, filling in for Hamilton. He is still too inexperienced to start on FantasyScore, but he has power and speed and is a player to watch if Hamilton returns to the disabled list.

Rangers | Josh Hamilton out again

Mon, 17 Aug 2015 15:14:23 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton is out of the starting lineup for the second straight day Monday, Aug. 17. OF Ryan Strausborger will start in left field and hit ninth against Seattle Mariners SP Taijuan Walker.

Fantasy Tip: Strausborger ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) has decent power upside but is an unproven commodity at the major league level with only 18 at-bats for Texas. He's a lotto ticket on FantasyScore if you want to save valuable cash for the rest of your lineup.

Rangers | Memorable game for Ryan Strausborger

Sun, 16 Aug 2015 20:06:46 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Ryan Strausborger recorded his first three-hit game and his first major league home run in a 5-3 win over the Tampa Bay Rays Sunday, Aug. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Strausborger ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) hadn't done much in his first six games, but he certainly won't forget Sunday's performance. That being said, his big games are likely going to be few and far between, and he won't have much value at FantasyScore.

Rangers | Josh Hamilton out of lineup

Sun, 16 Aug 2015 11:13:25 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton is out of the starting lineup against Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly Sunday, Aug. 16. OF Ryan Strausborger will play left field and bat ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Remove Hamilton ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) from your fantasy lineups. Strausborger ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is only 2-for-14 this season and is not a viable FantasyScore option at this point.

Rangers | Josh Hamilton sits again Thursday

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 09:39:21 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton (knee) is out of the lineup for a second consecutive game with left knee soreness. OF Ryan Strausborger will start in left field and bat ninth Thursday, Aug. 13, against Minnesota Twins SP Ervin Santana.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) has only played 36 games this season and has struggled to stay on the field in recent years. Strausborger ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) should continue to be his replacement and has the power and speed to make him an intriguing value, be it an inexperienced and risky one, on FantasyScore today against the homer-prone Ervin Santana.

Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton (knee) was scratched from the lineup with left knee soreness Wednesday, Aug. 12. OF Ryan Strausborger will replace him and start in left field.

Fantasy Tip: Given Hamilton's extensive injury history, this one is worth watching and monitoring if you own him. Have a backup plan in place in case he needs to go on the DL. Strausborger ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a pure dice roll as salary cap relief on FantasyScore tonight.

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo is not in the lineup against Houston Astros left-handed SP Scott Kazmir Wednesday, Aug. 5. OF Ryan Strausborger is starting in right field and hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: Strausborger will be making his major league debut after hitting .278 (96-for-345) with 10 home runs and 34 RBI for Class AAA Round Rock this year. He is hitting in a great lineup spot but is facing one of the hottest pitchers in the majors tonight. Take a wait-and-see approach with Strausborger on FantasyScore and avoid him tonight.
