Texas Rangers C Geovany Soto (groin) was activated from the disabled list Friday, Aug. 8. In a corresponding move, SP Jerome Williams was designated for assignment.
Fantasy Tip: Soto is worth considering in deep mixed leagues, two-catcher formats and AL-only leagues. However, you should keep your expectations in check.

Updating a previous report, Texas Rangers SP Nick Tepesch (knee) will not work in the weekend series against the Cleveland Indians, so manager Ron Washington has shuffled his rotation. SP Jerome Williams will work Friday, Aug. 1, SP Miles Mikolas will go Saturday, Aug. 2, and SP Yu Darvish will work Sunday, Aug. 3. The team still does not feel Tepesch's injury warrants a stint on the 15-day disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: Despite the fact Tepesch does not sound destined for the DL, fantasy owners will want to steer clear of him until he is able to return and make a full start without any setbacks or restrictions.

Houston Astros general manager Jeff Luhnow said SPs Jerome Williams or Brad Peacock would likely take the open spot in the starting rotation.
Fantasy Tip: Neither player is worth owning in standard mixed leagues. Peacock is much more intriguing as a starter and would be the better target in AL-only leagues if you're in need of pitching.
