Rangers | Neck surgery likely for Prince Fielder

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 14:20:47 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Prince Fielder (neck) is expected to undergo neck surgery later this week.

Fantasy Tip: While there isn't a definitive timeline for his absence and return at this point, it doesn't sound good for Fielder bouncing back this season. In fact, his season could be finished. Don't make any hasty roster moves just yet, but be prepared to be without Fielder for the remainder of 2016. Jurickson Profar and Mitch Moreland will receive a decent to significant fantasy boost, and Joey Gallo is a player to watch because of his power potential. Stay tuned for updates.

Rangers | Prince Fielder's exam pushed back

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 10:19:47 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Prince Fielder's (neck) exam has been moved to Monday, July 25, instead of taking place Friday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: Fielder's scheduled for a doctor's visit that will determine whether or not he needs season-ending surgery. At this point, it's looking like the declining first baseman won't be a factor for the remainder of the campaign. If he's indeed out for the season, Mitch Moreland and Jurickson Profar will benefit the most.

Rangers | Prince Fielder has herniated disc

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 15:41:21 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Prince Fielder (neck) is dealing with a herniated disc and will visit with Dr. Drew Dossett Friday, July 22. Fielder could need season-ending surgery. He's been placed on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: There's a good chance we won't see him again for the rest of the year depending on the results of his doctor visit Friday. The disc herniation likely explains Fielder's disappointing .212/.292/.334 slash line with dwindling power (eight homers). He shouldn't have been carried in shallow mixed leagues and can likely be jettisoned in deep mixed leagues now, as well. Mitch Moreland and Jurickson Profar are likely to split time at first base, and Profar should be playing every day now with Shin-Soo Choo also on the DL.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo back in lineup

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 16:47:44 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo (back) is back in the starting lineup as the designated hitter and is batting leadoff against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tim Lincecum Tuesday, July 19. 1B Prince Fielder remains out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Choo has had his fair share of trouble staying on the field this year (just 32 games), but he's produced when he's played with a .271 average, seven home runs and 17 RBI and is a good table-setter for a potent lineup. Return him to all fantasy lineups in a juicy matchup. Fielder's power and playing time have diminished, making him a corner infield backup in deep mixed and AL-only universes.

Fantasy Tip: Fielder has picked up only three hits in his last seven games and is hitting .179 this month. Owners probably should avoid Fielder and look for more productive players for their lineup.

Rangers | Prince Fielder not in the lineup

Sat, 16 Jul 2016 08:50:25 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Prince Fielder is not in the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs SP Jason Hammel Saturday, July 16, because the team is not able to use a designated hitter in a National League stadium.

Fantasy Tip: Fielder will return to the lineup once the team resumes playing in American League stadiums. Owners in daily fantasy leagues probably should avoid Fielder this weekend.

Rangers | Texas sitting three players

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 11:16:21 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Nomar Mazara, 1B Mitch Moreland and C Robinson Chirinos are not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone Sunday, July 10. 3B Adrian Beltre will serve as the designated hitter, while 1B Prince Fielder will start at first base. OF Ryan Rua will start at left field and is batting fourth. 2B Jurickson Profar will start at third base and is batting sixth. C Bobby Wilson will start at catcher and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Rua is hitting .348 with three home runs and eight RBI against left-handed pitchers this season and should be a fine option in daily fantasy leagues. Profar is hitting only.208 over the last seven days but should still be a starting candidate for owners. Wilson is hitting only .231 this season and should be avoided in most leagues.

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 14:58:36 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Ian Desmond and 2B Jurickson Profar are not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Dan Straily Wednesday, June 22. OF Ryan Rua will start in center field and is batting sixth in the lineup. 1B Prince Fielder will serve as the designated hitter, while 1B Mitch Moreland will start at first base and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Rua is hitting .310 with four home runs and 10 RBI this month and is a sleeper starting candidate for owners in daily fantasy leagues. Moreland is hitting .316 with one home run and two RBI over the last seven days and should have value in some daily fantasy leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Fielder has been more successful at the plate in June and has at five hits and three RBI in his last six games. Moreland is hitting .313 with one home run and two RBI over the last seven days. Both players should be decent options for owners in daily fantasy leagues.
