Rangers | Chi Chi Gonzalez sent down

Wed, 19 Aug 2015 09:33:13 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Chi Chi Gonzalez was optioned to the minors Tuesday, Aug. 18.

Fantasy Tip: With Derek Holland ($5,000, 10.0% of cap) returning from the DL to start Wednesday, Gonzalez's rotation spot was expendable. You can drop him in any deep league where he is owned. Holland has missed a lot of time with injuries and can't be trusted on FantasyScore, at least not right away.

Rangers | Cole Hamels on track for Monday

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 10:09:46 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels (groin) could be ready to return for a start against the Seattle Mariners Monday, Aug. 17. He will test his sore left groin during a bullpen session Saturday, Aug. 15. SP Chi Chi Gonzalez is starting in place of Hamels Thursday, Aug. 13, and he has a chance to stick in the rotation after SP Nick Martinez was optioned to the minors.

Fantasy Tip: You may be hesitant to use Hamels ($8,600, 17.2% of cap) on FantasyScore coming off an injury and two poor outings in his first two starts with his new team. The matchup against Seattle isn't a bad one, though, and Hamels should turn things around with Texas to finish out the year.

Rangers | Chi Chi Gonzalez starting Thursday

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 13:36:29 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Chi Chi Gonzalez is starting against the Minnesota Twins Thursday, Aug. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez has been beat around in his past three starts. He lost all three while surrendering 15 runs over 13 1/3 innings with just five strikeouts. View Gonzalez as a risky fantasy option in all fantasy formats Thursday, especially at FantasyScore.

Rangers | Wandy Rodriguez drawing interest

Thu, 16 Jul 2015 16:50:34 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Wandy Rodriguez is drawing interest from teams as the trade deadline nears. Interested teams view Rodriguez as a fallback option if they aren't able to land a big-name starting pitcher. SPs Nick Martinez or Chi Chi Gonzalez could move back into the rotation if Rodriguez is dealt away.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has been a nice surprise for Texas (6-4, 4.07 ERA, 1.45 WHIP), but he's still only a fantasy commodity in very deep mixed and AL-only leagues. However, a trade out of Texas to a more pitcher-friendly home park could make him more attractive.

Rangers | Alex Gonzalez optioned

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 14:22:17 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Alex Gonzalez was optioned Saturday, July 4.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) opened the season with four strong starts, but he's been roughed up in two of his last three. Gonzalez wasn't able to strikeout more than four batters in any one of his seven starts this season, and he's unlikely to re-emerge as a fantasy option.

Rangers | Alex Gonzalez shows he's human

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 16:50:45 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Alex Gonzalez allowed a run and eight hits while walking three in seven innings in a loss to the Oakland Athletics Thursday, June 11, after entering the game with 14 2/3 scoreless innings in his first two major league starts. Gonzalez had four strikeouts and now has an ERA of just 0.42 after three starts.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) entered the day with a ridiculous .116 batting average on balls in play against and a 100% left-on-base percentage. Those numbers will regress drastically, and with just 2.5 strikeouts per nine innings going into Thursday, darker days are ahead for Chi Chi. It helps that two of his first three games were against the offensively-challenged Boston Red Sox and A's. At FantasyScore and in all other leagues, be careful not to overvalue the youngster just yet.

Rangers | Alex Gonzalez looks for another win

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 17:42:13 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Alex Gonzalez is scheduled to start Thursday, June 11, against the Oakland Athletics. He has won each of his previous two starts, including a complete game win last time out in Kansas City June 5.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($4,700; or 9.4% of cap) is attractive to FantasyScore owners because he has won each of his two outings. However, he isnít a high strikeout pitcher, posting just four whiffs in 14 2/3 innings, and he faces a tough matchup on the road. Start him at your own peril, as a bad outing could be just around the corner.

Rangers | Alex Gonzalez shuts out Royals

Fri, 05 Jun 2015 21:48:59 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Alex Gonzalez allowed three hits and struck out two in a complete game shutout of the Kansas City Royals Friday, June 5.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has been brilliant in his first two career starts, allowing five hits and no over 14 2/3 innings. For the price, he is definitely worth taking a chance on at FantasyScore in his next start.

Rangers | Alex Gonzalez impressive in debut

Sat, 30 May 2015 20:31:53 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Alex Gonzalez allowed no runs and one hit while striking out two and walking five against the Boston Red Sox in his major league debut Saturday, May 30. He took a no-hitter into the sixth inning.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzlaez's control wasn't great, but he more than held his own in his first start. He is expected to receive at least a few more starts, and it is worth checking out his price tag when he is added to the player pool at FantasyScore.

Rangers | Alex Gonzalez to remain in rotation

Fri, 29 May 2015 17:03:29 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Alex Gonzalez will remain in the starting rotation past his start Saturday, May 30. SP Ross Detwiler (shoulder) will join the bullpen when he is activated from the 15-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez has not been dominant in Class AAA but will receive several starts with the Rangers. Owners should see how Gonzalez pitches in a game or two before considering adding him to their roster or using him on FantasyScore.
