Rangers | Ian Desmond reaches 20 homers

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 23:41:47 -0700

Texas Rangers SS-OF Ian Desmond went 2-for-4 with a double, two-run home run and two runs scored Wednesday, June 27, against the Oakland Athletics.

Fantasy Tip: Desmond has managed 20 homers and 62 RBIs, showing no signs of slowing down. He is on a one-year contract trying to turn his big season into a payday, and fantasy owners are enjoying the ride.

Rangers | Yu Darvish posted quality start

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 23:41:12 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish allowed two earned runs, four hits and no walks with six strikeouts over six innings in a no-decision Wednesday, July 27, against the Oakland Athletics. He threw 64 of his 93 pitches for strikes in the quality start.

Fantasy Tip: Darvish is slowly rounding into form. After failing to do so in his first four starts, he has managed quality starts over the past two outings. He also has 26 strikeouts in 16 1/3 innings in the month of July to re-emerge as a must-start in all fantasy formats.

Rangers | Lucas Harrell will start for Texas

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 16:30:44 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Lucas Harrell will be in the team's starting rotation, according to general manager Jon Daniels.

Fantasy Tip: One of the year's brightest surprise stories after not starting a major league game since the beginning of the 2014 season, Harrell will provide the Texas pitching staff with some much-needed depth. With Colby Lewis and Derek Holland still out for the foreseeable future, Harrell will get the chance to stick on a top contender, though owners shouldn't expect him to sustain his 3.38 ERA that he held over five starts with the Braves.

Rangers | Prince Fielder to have surgery Friday

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 15:26:00 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Prince Fielder (neck) will have season-ending fusion surgery Friday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: This is the second time in his three years with the Rangers that Fielder has required a season-ending operation on his neck. It's unfortunate, especially after the slugging first baseman won the Most Improved Player award last season, but now having to go through another neck surgery, it'll be hard to invest in him in fantasy next season. Hopefully he's able to come back strong like he did a year ago.

Rangers | Lucas Harrell dealt to Rangers

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 14:37:23 -0700

The Texas Rangers acquired SP Lucas Harrell and RP Dario Alvarez from the Atlanta Braves Wednesday, July 27. The players traded to Atlanta have yet to be announced.

Fantasy Tip: Harrell should be owned in all cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues, but he's pitched well for five starts this season during an otherwise underwhelming career. Over 67 career starts, he owns a 4.69 ERA and a 1.52 WHIP, after all. Keep your expectations in check. Alvarez is a left-handed reliever with no fantasy value at this point.

Rangers | Delino DeShields leading off vs. Oakland

Wed, 27 Jul 2016 13:54:09 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. is leading off against Oakland Athletics SP Sean Manaea Wednesday, July 27. Rangers INF Jurickson Profar is batting second Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: DeShields owns plus-wheels and could be a sneaky source of stolen bases going forward if he earns regular playing time. Profar is a must-own hitter at this stage, as he appears in line for full-time at-bats going forward and boasts a solid .287/.341/.401 slash line.

Rangers | Elvis Andrus to play Wednesday

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 23:49:35 -0700

Texas Rangers SS Elvis Andrus was held out of the lineup for the second time in a nine-day stretch that also included an off day for the team. Manager Jeff Banister said Andrus "was a little banged up" but would play Wednesday, July 27.

Fantasy Tip: Give Andrus a game or two to prove his health before trusting him again in seasonal fantasy leagues and DFS play.

Rangers | Elvis Andrus, Delino DeShields out

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 15:27:16 -0700

Texas Rangers SS Elvis Andrus and OF Delino DeShields Jr. is not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray Tuesday, July 26. 2B Jurickson Profar will start at second base, while 1B Mitch Moreland will serve as the designated hitter and is batting eighth. OF Ryan Rua will start in right field and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Moreland has only three hits in his last 20 at-bats and probably should be avoided in most fantasy leagues. Rua is hitting .238 with one home run and two RBI this month. Owners should be able to find better players to use in their lineups and can avoid Rua.

Rangers | Joey Gallo starting at 1B

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 15:18:51 -0700

Texas Rangers 3B Joey Gallo will start at first base against Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray Tuesday, July 26, and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Gallo was hitting .246 with 19 home runs and 47 RBI in the minor leagues and should remain with the Rangers for a while. He needs to be owned in all AL-only leagues and should also be an option for owners looking for more power in deeper fantasy leagues.

Rangers | Joey Gallo recalled

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 14:54:25 -0700

Texas Rangers 3B Joey Gallo was recalled from Class AAA Round Rock Tuesday, July 26. There is no word yet on whether he will be a starter in this evening's game.

Fantasy Tip: Gallo may be showcased for trade purposes, or the team may have something else in mind. Whatever the case, Gallo is back in the lineup and may be worth a low-cost DFS flyer if he's in the starting lineup.

Rangers | Quality start for Martin Perez

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 23:43:53 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez allowed five runs - three earned - and nine hits over six innings in a no-decision Monday, July 25, against the Oakland Athletics. He allowed one walk with three strikeouts while throwing 61 of his 84 pitches for strikes.

Fantasy Tip: Perez had been terrible in the month of July, but this was certainly a much-needed good start for the left-hander. Fantasy owners will want to see at least one more quality start before trusting him again.

Rangers | Adrian Beltre has four-hit game

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 23:43:12 -0700

Texas Rangers 3B Adrian Beltre went 4-for-5 with a pair of home runs, three runs scored and three RBIs Monday, July 25, against the Oakland Athletics.

Fantasy Tip: Beltre is starting to heat up, posting three straight multi-hit games with three homers and six RBIs during the stretch. He remains a must-start in all fantasy formats and DFS play.

Rangers | Ian Desmond continues to rake

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 23:42:40 -0700

Texas Rangers SS-OF Ian Desmond went 1-for-5 with a solo home run Monday, July 25, against the Oakland Athletics. The homer was his 19th of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Desmond is playing for a contract in the offseason, and he is on fire and likely to get paid at this rate. He is just six homers short of a career high set back in 2012 with the Washington Nationals.

Rangers | Prince Fielder out for the season

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 15:58:14 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Prince Fielder (neck) will undergo season-ending surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Fielder can be replaced in all seasonal leagues. Jurickson Profar and Mitch Moreland will receive a decent to significant fantasy boost with more playing time ahead. Joey Gallo is also a player to watch because of his power potential.

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.
