Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo back and leading off

Fri, 20 May 2016 14:22:57 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo (calf) was activated from the 15-day disabled list and is back in the starting lineup hitting leadoff against Houston Astros SP Lance McCullers Friday, May 20. As a result, 2B Rougned Odor moves down to fifth in the batting order, and OF Nomar Mazara is hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: So Choo's return pushes both Odor and Mazara down in the order, which hurts their fantasy value a tad. The good thing for Mazara owners is that he won't lose any playing time at all with Choo's activation, and the rookie remains a midrange outfielder in all formats. Choo should be returned to starting lineups everywhere. He can deliver somewhere around 20 home runs and decent counting stats across the board.

Rangers | Nomar Mazara headed to LF

Wed, 18 May 2016 11:57:17 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Nomar Mazara will play left field when OF Shin-Soo Choo (calf) returns to right field.

Fantasy Tip: The outfield seems set with Ian Desmond in center. Choo will have to hit better than the .188 he opened the season with, but he'll be a midrange option in the outfield. Ryan Rua will lose most of his fantasy appeal but will probably sub in against lefties. He could be a low-end DFS option in those matchups. Mazara is an upper-middle option the rest of the way. Desmond's shortstop eligibility is paramount with six homers and 25 RBI. He remains an upper-level option there.

Rangers | Nomar Mazara out vs. lefty

Wed, 18 May 2016 10:18:25 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Nomar Mazara is not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics left-handed SP Rich Hill Wednesday, May 18. OF Drew Stubbs is starting in right field and is hitting eighth. OF Ian Desmond is hitting in the two-hole again.

Fantasy Tip: Stubbs has three hits in just eight at-bats with the Rangers, including a home run, but he remains a low-end daily candidate. Speed is his best asset, and it'll be tougher to utilize it hitting so low in the order. Desmond has come on strong lately and is hitting .318 with three home runs and 15 RBI in May. He's also hitting .350 with three of his six long balls against lefties. Desmond makes a fine addition to any daily lineups today.

Rangers | Adrian Beltre talks rookie Nomar Mazara

Thu, 12 May 2016 14:16:02 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Nomar Mazara has impressed veteran 3B Adrian Beltre. "He is unbelievably talented. He has his head straight. All he's done is put together good, patient at-bats and drive guys in," Beltre said about the rookie outfielder.

Fantasy Tip: Mazara has impressed fantasy owners, too. He has 16 runs, four home runs, 12 RBI and a .314/.373/.457 slash line through his first 121 plate appearances. There could be a slight hit in playing time once Shin-Soo Choo returns, but as long as Mazara doesn't fall into a lengthy slump, the rookie should see enough at-bats in the heart of the lineup to maintain his flourishing fantasy value.

Rangers | Nomar Mazara hitting third

Wed, 11 May 2016 08:32:24 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Nomar Mazara is hitting third Wednesday, May 11, and OF Delino DeShields Jr. is out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Mazara has a .301-4-11 line on the season but has hit .231 the last week. He took Mat Latos deep the last time the two faced one another, and Mazara is a midrange DFS option with upside.

Rangers | Nomar Mazara, Mitch Moreland resting

Tue, 10 May 2016 13:37:52 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Nomar Mazara and 1B Mitch Moreland are not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox left-handed SP Carlos Rodon Tuesday, May 10. OF Drew Stubbs is in right field and batting ninth, while OF Ryan Rua is starting at first base and is hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Stubbs' value is based on speed, and he'll have few chances to utilize it hitting ninth. He's a very weak daily pick. Rua hits much better against lefties (.368 in 19 at-bats), so he might be worth a selection as a deep sleeper if you're looking to save some salary cap space.

Mon, 02 May 2016 20:27:42 -0700
