Rangers | Josh Hamilton heating up

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 17:55:37 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run in a 2-1 win over the San Francisco Giants Sunday, Aug. 2, and he has two home runs and eight RBI over his last five games.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has just five home runs and 16 RBI for the year, so he has basically doubled his production in his last five games. The former MVP still has plenty of upside, and it could be a good time to take a chance on him at FantasyScore.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo batting No. 2

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 11:55:30 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo is batting second in the lineup Sunday, Aug. 2, against the San Francisco Giants.

Fantasy Tip: Choo ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has a .333 average in the past week but he hits .600 against Giants starter Mike Leake, with three hits in five at-bats. Those are juicy numbers, so it may account for moving Choo up and giving him scoring opportunities.

Rangers | Delino DeShields out of Sunday lineup

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 11:49:58 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. is not in the lineup Sunday, Aug. 2, against the San Francisco Giants. OF Leonys Martin is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: DeShields ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is hitting .143 against San Francisco pitching, which may have been a factor in the decision to give him an off day. Martin ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is 1-for-2 against Giants starter Mike Leake, so it may be worth the purchase on FantasyScore.

Rangers | Robinson Chirinos to DL

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 05:35:24 -0700

Texas Rangers C Robinson Chirinos (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Saturday, Aug. 1. C Bobby Wilson should receive the bulk of playing time.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson can be completely avoided against both left- and right-handed pitching on FantasyScore.

Rangers | A strong finish coming for Elvis Andrus?

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 06:48:22 -0700

Texas Rangers SS Elvis Andrus went 2-for-4 with two runs, a double, a home run and two RBI during the Rangers 6-3 win over the San Francisco Giants Friday, July 31.

Fantasy Tip: Andrus ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) owns a .350/.375/.467 slash line with nine runs, nine RBI and two stolen bases over his past 15 games. He has been bumped up to the two-hole the past two games, too. Andrus stands to finish strong, especially if he sticks hitting second in the order. Seasonal owners looking for middle infield help can look to Andrus as a potential upside add.

Rangers | Adrian Beltre belts No. 8

Sat, 01 Aug 2015 06:38:22 -0700

Texas Rangers 3B Adrian Beltre went 3-for-4 with a double, a home run and two RBI during the Rangers 6-3 win over the San Francisco Giants Friday, July 31.

Fantasy Tip: Beltre ($4,700, 9.4% of cap) has been a major disappointment in 2015, as he has battled injuries and returned just eight home runs and 27 RBI with a. 259/.302/.392 slash line. At 36, there is a chance Beltre is reaching the twilight of his career, and don't rule out the disappointments continuing through the end of the season.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland, Shin-Soo Choo out

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 16:20:17 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland and OF Shin-Soo Choo are not in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants left-handed SP Madison Bumgarner Friday, July 31. 2B Adam Rosales is starting at first base and hitting seventh, while OF Ryan Rua gets the start in left field and is hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Rua ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) and Rosales ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) are both weak FantasyScore options to begin with, and facing MadBum means you should definitely look to avoid them everywhere in daily games.

Rangers | Yovani Gallardo staying put

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 12:58:26 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yovani Gallardo will not be traded at the deadline Friday, July 31, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Gallardo ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) and his 3.39 ERA will remain in Texas for the time being. He's struggled mightily of late, allowing five earned runs in each of his last three outings as he suffers through some regression to his first-half numbers. You'll probably want to avoid him on FantasyScore his next time out, depending on who he matches up against.

Rangers | Texas to hold Yovani Gallardo?

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 12:03:31 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yovani Gallardo appears to be staying with the Rangers at the moment as the trade deadline nears. The Los Angeles Dodgers, Chicago Cubs and Toronto Blue Jays have been in the mix for him.

Fantasy Tip: Gallardo ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) would probably benefit from a move to a National League park, especially after allowing five runs in each of his last three starts. Gallardo was due for some regression after his surprisingly clean first half of the season.

Rangers | Cole Hamels to start Saturday

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 08:36:39 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels will make his debut for the Rangers against the San Francisco Giants Saturday, Aug. 1.

Fantasy Tip: The Giants have been a much better team on the road than at home this season. However, Hamels ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) is a quality fantasy ace, and you shouldn't be turned off by the fact that he's pitching in another hitter's park with the move to the American League West.

Rangers | Three teams in on Yovani Gallardo

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 07:25:54 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yovani Gallardo continues to be pursued by the Los Angeles Dodgers, Chicago Cubs and Toronto Blue Jays. The Rangers are content with keeping him if they don't receive an offer they want.

Fantasy Tip: Regression to the mean is already hitting Gallardo ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) hard in the second half of the season, as he's allowed five runs in each of his last three starts to raise his ERA to 3.39 on the season. A trade to either the Dodgers or Cubs would be the best for his fantasy value for the rest of the season.

Rangers | Texas fine with keeping Yovani Gallardo

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 14:41:45 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yovani Gallardo is a potential trade candidate, but the Rangers are telling teams that they are fine with keeping him if they don't receive an offer that they like.

Fantasy Tip: Gallardo ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) has had a fine season with Texas, but he's allowed five runs in each of his last two starts to raise his ERA on the year to 3.19. He's due for regression in the second half, so pick and choose your matchups with him on FantasyScore. A move out of Texas wouldn't be a bad thing for his fantasy value for the remainder of the year.

Rangers | Elvis Andrus moves into two-hole

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 14:29:56 -0700

Texas Rangers SS Elvis Andrus is batting second against New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia Thursday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: Andrus ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has been hitting lower in the lineup, so this is a nice fantasy boost, and it improves his runs scored upside. Over his past 15 games, Andrus has a .310 batting average with six runs and eight RBI. He stands as a sneaky value play at shortstop for FantasyScore contests Thursday.

Rangers | TEX open to dealing Yovani Gallardo

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 21:22:01 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yovani Gallardo could still be traded, and the team is open to the idea even after acquiring SP Cole Hamels, a source said Wednesday, July 29. Gallardo is tentatively scheduled to start Thursday, July 30, against the New York Yankees.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore players likely want to avoid Gallardo ($6,800, 13.6% of cap), as he could be a late scratch.

Rangers | TEX close to acquiring Cole Hamels

Wed, 29 Jul 2015 19:13:52 -0700

The Texas Rangers are close to acquiring SP Cole Hamels from the Philadelphia Phillies, according to multiple sources. The Phillies are believed to be receiving minor league C Jorge Alfaro and SP Jerad Eickhoff in return.

Fantasy Tip: Despite moving to the American League, Hamels ($8,900, 17.8% of cap) would receive a boost pitching for a contender. He makes a strong No. 2 fantasy starter and is a solid FantasyScore option in most games. Alfaro is batting .253 with five home runs and 21 RBIs in 49 games for Class AA Frisco and is considered one of the organization's top prospects. Eickhoff is 9-4 with a 4.30 ERA in 19 games (18 starts) for Frisco and Class AAA Round Rock.
