Rangers | Carlos Corporan could return Tuesday

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 13:24:04 -0700

There is an outside chance that Texas Rangers C Carlos Corporan (thumb) will be activated from the disabled list Tuesday, Sept. 1, when rosters are expanded.

Fantasy Tip: Corporan ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) recently moved his minor league rehab assignment from Class AA Frisco to Class AAA Round Rock. He could be useful for owners in AL-only or two-catcher fantasy leagues once he returns to action.

Rangers | Josh Hamilton could be activated Tuesday

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 13:16:11 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton (knee) remains likely to be activated from the disabled list when rosters are expanded Tuesday, Sept. 1, even though he is expected to be limited to pinch-hitting duties. He has been taking batting practice and playing catch without experiencing any problems but he has not been cleared to resume running.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has noticed some improvement in his left knee recently but he won't be of much help to fantasy owners if he's not getting regular playing time. Avoid using him in FantasyScore for the foreseeable future.

Rangers | Robinson Chirinos rehab update

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 13:06:06 -0700

Texas Rangers C Robinson Chirinos (shoulder) caught a nine-inning simulated game with a pitching machine Friday, Aug. 28. Manager Jeff Banister said he is unlikely to be activated from the disabled list when rosters are expanded Tuesday, Sept. 1.

Fantasy Tip: Chirinos ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) experienced normal fatigue in his legs and hips following the simulated game. Banister said he would prefer not to use him until he's ready to resume his role as the Rangers' primary catcher. AL-only fantasy owners and owners in two-catcher leagues should continue to monitor his progress.

Rangers | Chris Gimenez catching Sunday

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 11:17:23 -0700

Texas Rangers C Chris Gimenez will bat eighth against Baltimore Orioles SP Miguel Gonzalez Sunday, Aug. 30.

Fantasy Tip: Gimenez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) is batting .300 (12-for-40) with four home runs and nine RBIs during the month of August and makes an excellent value play in FantasyScore this afternoon.

Rangers | Josh Hamilton still nursing knee

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 06:03:46 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton (knee) said he still feels pain in his left knee preventing him from running. He is not sure if he will be able to return from the disabled list when eligible Monday, Aug. 31, and added his injury is a "day-to-day thing."

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has missed significant time this season with a number of injuries and personal injuries. When on the field, he has flashed upside, but it is ill-advised to bank on fantasy returns from the veteran. After all, Hamilton has been limited to 38 games this season, and even when he deems himself ready to return, it would be shocking to see him receive everyday at-bats.

Rangers | Rougned Odor still out

Sat, 29 Aug 2015 15:31:44 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Rougned Odor (finger) is not in the starting lineup against Baltimore Orioles SP Ubaldo Jimenez Saturday, Aug. 29. 2B Hanser Alberto will start at second base and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Owners should continue to monitor the situation to see when Odor ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) will be able to return to the lineup. Alberto ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is hitting only .236 in limited playing time this season and should not be a fantasy option.

Rangers | Chris Gimenez homers again

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 20:05:51 -0700

Texas Rangers C Chris Gimenez went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in a 4-1 win over the Baltimore Orioles Friday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Gimenez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has two home runs and three runs scored in his last three starts, and for the price, he is worth a look as a source of cap relief at FantasyScore the next time he earns a start.

Rangers | Cole Hamels pitches a gem

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 20:00:41 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels allowed one run on two hits and struck out 10 over eight innings in a win over the Baltimore Orioles Friday, Aug. 28.

Fantasy Tip: This was Hamels' ($8,400, 16.8% of cap) best start since being traded to Texas and his third straight quality start. Feel free to use him at FantasyScore whenever he draws a quality matchup.

Rangers | Rougned Odor remains out

Fri, 28 Aug 2015 14:01:11 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Rougned Odor (finger) is not in the starting lineup Friday, Aug. 28. 2B Hanser Alberto is filling in at the keystone position and batting ninth against Baltimore Orioles SP Kevin Gausman Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to check back for updates on Odor ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) who should be close to returning. This will be the third game he has missed with the finger nail injury. Alberto ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation flier for FantasyScore players Friday.

Rangers | Yovani Gallardo reaches milestone

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 18:40:20 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yovani Gallardo (11-9) recorded his 100th career victory against the Toronto Blue Jays Thursday, Aug. 27. He allowed three hits over 5 1/3 scoreless innings, with three walks and two strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: In five starts during the month of August, Gallardo ($6,400, 12.8% of cap) went 4-0 with a 1.98 ERA. He hopes to continue this dominance in his next start against the San Diego Padres Tuesday, Sept. 1.

Rangers | Jurickson Profar playing for Hickory

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 14:40:08 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with Class A Hickory Thursday, Aug. 27. Profar will only serve as the designated hitter and not play the field, though.

Fantasy Tip: Don't count on any fantasy production from Profar in 2015, but there is an outside chance he receives a cup of coffee in late September. Still, it is likely a long shot, and there is no reason to stash Profar in the majority of seasonal leagues. He remains a stash candidate in keeper/dynasty formats, though.

Rangers | Adrian Beltre moving up list

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 23:03:24 -0700

Texas Rangers 3B Adrian Beltre clubbed his 407th career home run Wednesday, Aug. 26, against the Toronto Blue Jays. He tied Hall of Famer Duke Snider for 51st on the career homers list.

Fantasy Tip: Beltre ($5,200, 10.4% of cap) has driven in 12 runs over his past 11 games, and he is hitting .297 (27-for-91) in the month of August, his highest average in any month this season.

Rangers | Rougned Odor hopeful for Thursday

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 23:02:42 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Rougned Odor (finger) is hopeful of returning to the lineup Thursday, Aug. 27. He said doctors saved the nail on his right middle finger after a grounder almost tore it off in the game Tuesday, Aug. 25. He was still wearing a split Wednesday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: With Odor ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) sidelined it was Hanser Alberto ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) making the start at second base. The latter is a solid FantasyScore play at a cut-rate price. He can save you plenty of salary to spread across other positions.

Rangers | Colby Lewis filling the win column

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 14:57:12 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Colby Lewis is 10-2 with a 4.05 ERA thorugh his last 15 starts. Lewis is starting against the Toronto Blue Jays Wednesday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: A win likely won't come as easily for Lewis ($6,500, 13.0% of cap) Wednesday. Toronto is the highest-scoring team in the league and have averaged 9.0 runs per game over their last six outings. FantasyScore players should view Lewis as a risky option Wednesday, and it isn't out of the question to bench him in seasonal leagues.

Rangers | Rougned Odor out of the lineup

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 14:14:38 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Rougned Odor (finger) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Aug. 26. 2B Hanser Alberto is starting at second base and batting ninth against Toronto Blue Jays SP David Price Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Against Price ($9,600, 19.2% of cap), Hanser ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief for FantaysScore players. You should likely aim higher, too. Odor's ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) X-rays were negative, so he doesn't project to miss much time. You'll want to be careful counting on him immediately upon returning, though. Hand injuries sometimes don't jive with hitting.
