Rangers | Josh Hamilton receives cortisone injection

Fri, 22 Jan 2016 17:17:42 -0800

Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton (knee) experienced "immediate and profound" results after receiving a cortisone injection in his left knee Thursday, Jan. 21, in order to reduce capsular inflammation.

Fantasy Tip: It's not a good sign when a player needs to undergo cortisone injections during the offseason. Hamilton is coming off an injury-plagued 2015 campaign where he hit .253 with eight home runs and 25 RBIs in 50 games while battling knee, shoulder, groin and hamstring issues. He should be viewed as a late-round flier in deep mixed leagues because of his recent medical history.

Rangers | Josh Hamilton had more surgery

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 10:22:33 -0800

Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton (knee) had another minor cleanup surgery on his left knee two weeks ago and has started his rehab without issues.

Fantasy Tip: As if Hamilton's injury history wasn't extensive enough, he'll be coming off more knee problems entering the 2016 at age 34. No fantasy owners will want to spend much on an oft-injured player at that age, making Hamilton nothing more than a late-round flier in really deep mixed leagues.

Rangers | Josh Hamilton snaps long slump

Mon, 12 Oct 2015 04:28:10 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton snapped an 0-for-31 postseason drought with a one-out single in the fifth inning of Game 3 of the American League Division Series on Sunday, Oct. 11. He then added another hit two innings later against the Toronto Blue Jays. His last hit had been a single in the first inning of Game 7 of the 2011 World Series for Texas.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) had been in a funk as of late, and whether he has broken out of it remains to be seen. He is a career .500 hitter (4-for-8) against R.A. Dickey, Toronto's Game 4 starter, so it may be worth spending a little cap money in FantasyScore.

Rangers | Josh Hamilton launches a pair

Sat, 03 Oct 2015 19:31:57 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton went 2-for-4 with two solo home runs in an 11-10 loss to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Saturday, Oct. 3, giving him 200 home runs for his career.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has battled injuries all year, and while he has shown rare flashes of his upside, he is nothing more than a roll-of-the-dice play at FantasyScore.

Rangers | Josh Hamilton draws in vs. Angels

Thu, 01 Oct 2015 13:44:19 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton is starting in left field and batting sixth against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Andrew Heaney Thursday, Oct. 1. 1B Mitch Moreland is not in the starting lineup Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) started just two games in September and only had 14 plate appearances for the month. He is a true dice roll at FantasyScore Thursday, and he doesn't own the handedness advantage. You should likely look elsewhere in daily contests.

Rangers | Mike Napoli draws into lineup

Tue, 29 Sep 2015 14:18:01 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mike Napoli is starting in left field and is hitting fifth against Detroit Tigers SP Daniel Norris Tuesday, Sept. 29. OF Josh Hamilton will start on the bench.

Fantasy Tip: Napoli ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is boom or bust typically in daily formats, but he is batting .283 (41-for-145) with 11 of his 17 home runs this year off southpaws. Norris is also allowing 1.4 home runs per nine innings in 2015, so it could be the perfect storm for a FantasyScore breakthrough tonight.

Rangers | Josh Hamilton to be everyday player?

Mon, 28 Sep 2015 16:21:07 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton could become the team's regular left fielder just three weeks after he had surgery on his left knee. Manager Jeff Bannister has left that possibility open that Hamilton won't be limited to starting against right-handed pitchers. Four of the Rangers' final six regular season games are against left-handed pitchers. Hamilton played the entire game Saturday, Sept. 26, and said his knee felt better as the game went on.

Fantasy Tip: You'll only want to consider Hamilton ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) if he's starting against a right-handed pitcher on FantasyScore. Against lefties this year he's hitting just .229 (11-for-48) with two of his six home runs. Mike Napoli ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) loses major fantasy value in the closing week.

Rangers | Josh Hamilton batting sixth

Mon, 28 Sep 2015 13:18:22 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton is starting in left field and batting sixth against Detroit Tigers SP Justin Verlander Monday, Sept. 28. 1B Mike Napoli is not in the starting lineup Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has played too sparingly to view him as anything more than a high-risk, high-reward dice roll at FantasyScore Monday. Napoli ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) could see fewer at-bats this week, which is unfortunate because he owns a .309/.390/.515 slash line since joining Texas.

Rangers | Josh Hamilton receives start

Sat, 26 Sep 2015 08:39:40 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton (knee) will start in left field against Houston Astros SP Collin McHugh Saturday, Sept. 26, and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has seen limited playing time over the last few months and probably should not be a starting option for owners on FantasyScore.
