Rangers | Shawn Tolleson returning Friday

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 11:55:31 -0700

Texas Rangers RP Shawn Tolleson is scheduled to be activated from emergency medical leave Friday, June 3.

Fantasy Tip: Because of Tolleson's struggles in the ninth inning this year, he had been replaced by Sam Dyson, who has performed admirably in the role. Expect Tolleson to return as a late-inning setup man, which virtually kills all of his fantasy value.

Rangers | Shawn Tolleson on family medical leave

Fri, 27 May 2016 14:26:50 -0700

Texas Rangers RP Shawn Tolleson was placed on emergency family medical leave Friday, May 27. Tolleson must be on the leave list at least three days and a maximum of seven.

Fantasy Tip: Tolleson has minimal fantasy value after losing the closer job. He has allowed 18 runs through just 16 innings and doesn't warrant a roster spot at this stage of the season.

Rangers | Shawn Tolleson out as closer

Wed, 18 May 2016 10:48:20 -0700

Texas Rangers RP Shawn Tolleson has been removed from the closer role Wednesday, May 18, with RP Sam Dyson most likely to take over.

Fantasy Tip: Dyson has good numbers (1.89 ERA, 1.11 WHIP), but he doesn't have the swing-and-miss stuff you'd like in a closer with 13 K's in 19 innings. Lefty Jake Diekman could also be an option with a 2.51 ERA, a 1.05 WHIP and 19 K's in 14 1/3 innings. One dark-horse candidate, which may be out of the box, is Derek Holland. He hasn't been the same pitcher after injuries derailed him for a couple of years. Yu Darvish (elbow) is close to returning, and Holland has been brutal as a starter this year. Dyson is an immediate pickup, and Diekman should be owned in AL-only formats. If Holland is dropped from the rotation, he's a sleeper in deep leagues. If you own Tolleson, bench him and hope that he turns it around quickly enough to regain his job.

Rangers | Shawn Tolleson blows save

Tue, 17 May 2016 23:42:54 -0700

Texas Rangers RP Shawn Tolleson blew his fourth save of the season Tuesday, May 17, against the Oakland Athletics. He lasted just 2/3 inning, surrendering four runs on three hits and a walk, en route to suffering his second loss.

Fantasy Tip: Uh oh, that's now three blown saves this month for Tolleson. The right-hander was facing some adversity in the beginning of April, but after settling down since then, he's come apart again and could see his status as the closer in jeopardy. Sam Dyson would probably be first in line for save opportunities should Tolleson lose his job.
