Rangers | Nick Martinez masters Athletics

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 05:06:16 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Nick Martinez won for the fifth time in his last seven decisions as he struck out three and walked three batters in a 2-1 win over the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday, June 9.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez ($7,000, 14.0% of cap) has had a few issues lately, but this was his first win since May 23 and it has been a very good season overall for the Rangers pitcher. Continue playing Martinez in all formats, as Texas has turned the corner in the AL West and he should benefit from it.

Rangers | Nick Martinez sees streak end

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 21:53:50 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Nick Martinez was trampled for seven runs, nine hits and two walks over 3 1/3 innings in a loss Wednesday, June 3, against the Chicago White Sox. He saw his streak of having allowed no more than three earned runs in a game end at 16 games.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez was at least able to salvage the line somewhat with five strikeouts in his shortest stint of the season. However, consider him a risky FantasyScore pick at $7,000 (or 14.0% of cap) heading into his next outing.

Rangers | Nick Martinez solid again

Sat, 23 May 2015 20:10:29 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Nick Martinez improved to 4-0 on the year, allowing two runs on five hits and striking out five in seven innings in a 15-4 win over the New York Yankees Saturday, May 23, and he has allowed three earned runs or less in 15 straight starts dating back to last season.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) currently ranks third in the American League with a 1.96 ERA, and while he isn't an elite option at FantasyScore because of his low strikeout totals, he has been one of the safer starters.

Rangers | Nick Martinez named No. 5 starter

Sun, 29 Mar 2015 14:27:23 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Nick Martinez has won the fifth starter job, according to team sources.

Fantasy Tip: The Rangers have a lot of pitching issues this spring, but Martinez won the fifth job despite a 5-12 record and an ERA around 4.50. He may be worth a late-round flier in AL leagues only.

Rangers | Six TEX hurlers vying for rotation spot

Sun, 08 Mar 2015 12:01:20 -0700

Texas Rangers SPs Nick Tepesch, Nick Martinez, Alex Gonzalez, Anthony Ranaudo, Lisalverto Bonilla and Ross Ohlendorf are expected to compete for the final spot in the team's starting rotation.

Fantasy Tip: SPs Derek Holland, Yovani Gallardo, Colby Lewis and Ross Detwiler are expected to have the top four spots in the rotation locked up, in the wake of the injury to Yu Darvish (elbow). At this point, it appears that none of the six starters competing for the final rotation spot has an edge over the others, so keep checking back between now and the end of spring training for further updates.

Rangers | Texas continuing to look for starting pitching

Sun, 14 Dec 2014 10:41:32 -0800

Texas Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said the team is continuing to look for starting pitching even after the acquisition of SP Ross Detwiler. "We've got a number of internal options coming to compete for a spot, all of them that we like," Daniels said. "But you can never have enough and we'll continue having conversations about adding another starter." The Rangers already have SPs Yu Darvish, Derek Holland, Colby Lewis, Detwiler, Nick Martinez and Nick Tepesch on their roster and minor league SPs Alex Gonzalez and Luke Jackson could also compete for a job during spring training.
