Texas Rangers 3B Kevin Kouzmanoff (back) had successful surgery Tuesday, May 6. He'll remain in Los Angeles through the weekend.
Fantasy Tip: Surgery for a herniated disc is pretty serious, and Kouz will be out for eight to 12 weeks. Chances are slim to none that he'll make another significant impact at the major league level this year.

Texas Rangers 3B Kevin Kouzmanoff (back) is experiencing tingling in his legs, and Dr. Drew Dossett has advised him to undergo surgery to fix a herniated disc in his lower back. Kouzmanoff is going for a second opinion Friday, May 2, but has admitted that he'll likely need surgery.
Fantasy Tip: Kouzmanoff was a nice surprise with Adrian Beltre on the DL, but it was short-lived. The surgery should keep Kouz out for a significant amount of time. We'd be surprised if he returned to make an impact at the major league level again this year.

The Texas Rangers are activating 3B Adrian Beltre (quadriceps) from the disabled list Friday, April 25, and putting 3B Kevin Kouzmanoff (back) on the DL with a herniated disc in his lower back. It hasn't been determined if Kouzmanoff will need surgery.
Fantasy Tip: Beltre is back in the lineup Friday night. Get him back into your lineups. Kouzmanoff was a nice surprise in Beltre's absence, but it looks like that may be the last we see of him for a while. There's a decent chance he'll need surgery to correct his back problem.

Texas Rangers 3B Kevin Kouzmanoff (back) is flying back to Texas to be examined by Dr. Drew Dosset. Kouzmanoff hasn't improved and has a history of back problems.
Fantasy Tip: Donnie Murphy is taking over at the hot corner with Kouz sidelined. He's worth a look in the short term in AL-only leagues until Adrian Beltre (hamstring) returns.
