Rangers | A.J. Griffin labors in no-decision

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 21:22:34 -0700

Texas Rangers SP A.J. Griffin needed 96 pitches to cover four innings against the Boston Red Sox on Tuesday, July 5. He allowed seven hits and three walks but limited Boston to just two runs.

Fantasy Tip: Efficiency and Griffin don't belong in the same sentence right now. In three starts since being activated from the DL, Griffin has worked just 13 1/3 innings, allowing five runs on 15 hits. Those aren't terrible numbers, but if he can't work deeper in games he'll continue to pile up the no-decisions (five straight). Griffin has modest appeal in deeper mixed leagues.

Rangers | A.J. Griffin solid in no-decision

Thu, 30 Jun 2016 15:42:00 -0700

Texas Rangers SP A.J. Griffin put together a pretty good start Thursday, June 30, versus the New York Yankees. The right-hander went five innings, issuing only one run on two hits and two walks, including a solo homer. He also struck out eight.

Fantasy Tip: This was Griffin's second start back since coming off the disabled list, and he was actually a bit better than he was in his return outing, so that's certainly a positive takeaway from this assignment. Griffin has posted some solid numbers this year, and as long as he continues to pitch for one of the best teams in baseball, he might be able to sustain consistent value in a lot of fantasy leagues.

Rangers | A.J. Griffin to start Saturday

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 22:42:54 -0700

Texas Rangers SP A.J. Griffin (shoulder) is set to be activated from the 15-day DL and start against the Boston Red Sox on Saturday, June 25.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin pitched well prior to hitting the disabled list with shoulder stiffness, but he couldn't have picked a tougher opponent to return against. Griffin has clear AL-only and some deeper mixed value, but it might be prudent to keep him in reserve for his first start back.

Rangers | Two more rehab starts for A.J. Griffin

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 14:58:12 -0700

Texas Rangers SP A.J. Griffin (shoulder) is expected to make at least two more rehab starts in the minors before returning from the disabled list, according to manager Jon Daniels.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin pitched well enough (2.94 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, 7.5 K/9) to be stashed in AL-only leagues and some deep mixed formats in his six starts. However, a very fortunate BABIP says regression is ahead, so temper your expectations a bit if Griffin returns and lands a rotation spot again. He could in in place of Yu Darvish (shoulder).
