With the threat of re-signing OF Nelson Cruz (Orioles) now having passed, 1B Mitch Moreland is in line to serve as the primary designated hitter for manager Ron Washington. "I'm just going out there and playing today and trying to get better," Moreland said. Washington is also expected to use the DH spot to rotate some veterans like 1B Prince Fielder, OF Shin-Soo Choo, 3B Adrian Beltre and OF Alex Rios for partial rest.

Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington plans to have OF Shin-Soo Choo batting first in the starting lineup this season. Choo would be followed by SS Elvis Andrus, 1B Prince Fielder, 3B Adrian Beltre, OF Alex Rios, DH Mitch Moreland, C Geovany Soto, 2B Jurickson Profar and OF Leonys Martin.

Texas Rangers 1B Prince Fielder will bat ahead of 3B Adrian Beltre in the lineup for 2014, with Fielder going third and Beltre fourth. Columnist Gerry Fraley speculates OF Shin-Soo Choo will bat leadoff. The second slot in the lineup was not disclosed by manager Ron Washington.
Fantasy Tip: A combination of a shorter right-field porch at The Ballpark in Arlington and hitting ahead of Adrian Beltre could help Fielder regain what seemed to be a lost stroke in 2013. You have to wonder if his personal issues (divorce) may have spilled over onto the diamond, and if he is past those issues Fielder could be gangbusters in 2014.

Texas Rangers 1B Prince Fielder will be the team's primary first baseman, and the team is still trying to determine 1B Mitch Moreland's role. SS Jurickson Profar can now move to second base full time with 2B Ian Kinsler gone. Manager Ron Washington hasn't decided on where Fielder will hit in the lineup yet, but he wants to leave 3B Adrian Beltre in the cleanup spot.

Texas Rangers 1B Lance Berkman (hip) said there hasn't been noticeable improvement in his left hip, but he's confident that he'll be activated from the disabled list when first eligible on July 22.
Fantasy Tip: Berkman's return would probably mean the end of temporary playing time for Engel Beltre, but you can't bank on the injury-prone Big Puma returning quickly.
