Rangers | Will Venable draws into lineup

Thu, 24 Sep 2015 11:05:43 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Will Venable is starting in left field and is hitting eighth against Oakland Athletics SP Chris Bassitt Thursday, Sept. 24. 3B Joey Gallo will start on the bench against a righty.

Fantasy Tip: Venable ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) has some daily upside because of his speed and a matchup against a pitcher coming off injury, but the fact remains he's a weaker outfield option on FantasyScore when he's hitting that low in the batting order.

Rangers | Mike Napoli starting vs. righty

Thu, 17 Sep 2015 14:29:12 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mike Napoli is starting in left field and batting sixth against Houston Astros SP Lance McCullers Thursday, Sept. 17. 3B Joey Gallo is not in the starting lineup Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Napoli ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) and the Rangers are rolling, so him sticking in the lineup isn't surprising. He has been sitting against right-handed pitchers frequently, but his .939 OPS since joining Texas is intriguing for seasonal and FantasyScore players. View him as a potential value play in daily contests Thursday. Gallo ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) is just 2-for-18 since rejoining the Rangers and doesn't project to see a lot of playing time with Texas chasing a playoff berth.

Rangers | Joey Gallo back in LF

Tue, 15 Sep 2015 13:48:14 -0700

Texas Rangers 3B Joey Gallo is back in left field and is hitting eighth against Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh Tuesday, Sept. 15. 1B Mike Napoli will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Gallo ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) continues to struggle; he's 2-for-16 (.125) with a home run and 10 strikeouts since coming up when rosters expanded. He has world-class power, but his swing-and-miss ways make him an all-or-nothing fantasy commodity.

Rangers | Joey Gallo out of the lineup

Mon, 14 Sep 2015 13:40:15 -0700

Texas Rangers 3B Joey Gallo is not in the starting lineup Monday, Sept. 14. 1B Mike Napoli is starting in left field and batting fifth against Houston Astros SP Scott Kazmir Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Gallo ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) is just 2-for-16 with a home run and three walks since rejoining the Rangers Wednesday, Sept. 2. He is a fringe own in deep mixed leagues because he boasts huge power, but his playing time is inconsistent. Napoli ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has been much better at the plate since joining Texas with a .866 OPS and three home runs over 45 at-bats. He is a low-end flier at FantasyScore Monday, though.

Rangers | Joey Gallo back in LF

Fri, 04 Sep 2015 15:15:17 -0700

Texas Rangers 3B Joey Gallo is starting in left field again and is hitting eighth against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Garrett Richards Friday, Sept. 4. OF Will Venable will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Gallo ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has looked overmatched at times this year in the majors with 46 strikeouts in 90 at-bats, but nine of his 19 hits have been of the extra-base variety with five long balls. He has extreme power but is unlikely to help your average. Add him in deep mixed leagues immediately if you could use some pop down the stretch.

Rangers | Joey Gallo starting in left field

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 15:37:28 -0700

Texas Rangers 3B Joey Gallo is starting in left field and batting eighth against San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy Wednesday, Sept. 2. OF Will Venable and 1B Mitch Moreland are not in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Moreland ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) and Venable ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday. Moreland is out without the option to use a designated hitter, and Venable could enter a timeshare in the outfield with Gallo back with the big club. Gallo hit .218 with five home runs, 13 RBIs and a .448 slugging percentage through 25 games earlier this season. He is a high-risk, high-reward daily option.

Rangers | Joey Gallo to return Tuesday

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 18:22:45 -0700

The Texas Rangers will recall 3B Joey Gallo from Class AAA Round Rock Tuesday, Sept. 1, when rosters expand. He hit .218 with five homers, 13 RBIs and a .448 slugging percentage in 25 games with the big club earlier in the season.

Fantasy Tip: Gallo has plenty of power potential, but he also strikes out quite a bit, too. If he develops a keener eye at the plate he could develop into one of the most dangerous offensive players in the American League over time.

Rangers | TEX won't part with top prospects

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 10:43:55 -0700

The Texas Rangers have intensified trade talks with the Philadelphia Phillies regarding SP Cole Hamels, according to a major league source. However, they are unlikely to part with top prospects such as 3B Joey Gallo and OF Nomar Mazara in any potential deal and want the Phillies to pick up a chunk of his contract.

Fantasy Tip: Hamels ($8,300, 16.6% of cap) is appealing to the Rangers because he is under contract through the 2018 season, with a vesting option for 2019. He will start against the Chicago Cubs Saturday, July 25, but FantasyScore owners should avoid using him because he is 0-2 with a 19.89 ERA over his last two starts.

Rangers | Joey Gallo sent to minors

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 12:42:48 -0700

Texas Rangers 3B Joey Gallo was optioned to Class AAA Round Rock on Tuesday, June 30, to make room for OF Josh Hamilton (hamstring).

Fantasy Tip: This isn't as big a surprise as you might think, as Gallo ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) cooled off after a hot start. Gallo had five homers and a .218 average. If you can stash Gallo on your bench in keeper leagues do it, as he will be back. Otherwise, drop him from FantasyScore consideration.

Rangers | Leonys Martin on the bench

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 08:31:55 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Leonys Martin is not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP Matt Boyd Saturday, June 27. 3B Joey Gallo will start in center field and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return in the next game or two. Gallo ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) has four hits in his last eight games and is batting only .125 against left-handed pitchers, so owners on FantasyScore may want to look at other options.
