Rangers | Josh Hamilton activated from DL

Mon, 25 May 2015 11:08:46 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton (shoulder) has been activated from the 15-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is still a risky option even at his cheap price on FantasyScore as he has not played since last October. Steer clear until he gets back on track.

Rangers | Three impacted by Josh Hamilton

Mon, 25 May 2015 06:04:24 -0700

Texas Rangers OFs Shin-Soo Choo, Delino DeShields Jr. and Leonys Martin are expected to lose some playing time with the return of Rangers OF Josh Hamilton to the lineup Monday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: All three players are fringe fantasy plays most days and have limited value in standard leagues. Pay close attention to their time early in this process to help gauge your level of fantasy commitment in the following weeks. It's best to avoid all three in the short term.

Rangers | No pressure on Josh Hamilton

Mon, 25 May 2015 05:30:22 -0700

Updating an ongoing story, Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton (shoulder) is set to rejoin the major league club Monday, May 25. The timing couldn't be better, according to The Dallas Morning News writer Gerry Fraley, as Texas is riding a season-best five-game winning streak and place Hamilton into a no-pressure situation. Rangers manager Jeff Banister said Hamilton will be used in left field and is expected to bat fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) should be avoided until he regains his sea legs in the bigs. Play him as nothing more than a source of cap relief in daily action for the time being.

Rangers | Derek Holland may throw at week's end

Mon, 25 May 2015 01:36:53 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland (shoulder) could start a throwing program at the end of this week. Holland has not pitched since his first start on April 10.

Fantasy Tip: Holland ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) may not be ready for another few weeks, but this is an indication he's taking the next step. Give him some space to do so and don't pick Holland up until he's proven successful.

Rangers | Josh Hamilton to return Monday

Sat, 23 May 2015 21:08:29 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton (shoulder) will join the team for their three-game series against the Cleveland Indians that begins Monday, May 25.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) will be joining a Texas lineup that has been crushing the ball recently, and he could be worth taking a chance on immediately at FantasyScore.

Rangers | Nick Martinez solid again

Sat, 23 May 2015 20:10:29 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Nick Martinez improved to 4-0 on the year, allowing two runs on five hits and striking out five in seven innings in a 15-4 win over the New York Yankees Saturday, May 23, and he has allowed three earned runs or less in 15 straight starts dating back to last season.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) currently ranks third in the American League with a 1.96 ERA, and while he isn't an elite option at FantasyScore because of his low strikeout totals, he has been one of the safer starters.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo dialed in

Sat, 23 May 2015 19:07:43 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo went 2-for-5 with a home run, four RBIs, three runs scored and a walk in a 15-4 win over the New York Yankees Saturday, May 23, and he is hitting .295 with nine runs scored and eight RBIs over his past 10 games.

Fantasy Tip: Choo ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) suffered through an abysmal opening month, but he has bounced back in a big way in May. Welcome him back into your lineups at FantasyScore with open arms.

Rangers | Prince Fielder having big series

Sat, 23 May 2015 19:02:54 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Fielder ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is crushing the ball and the Yankees, and he should be in your lineups at FantasyScore in the third game of the series Sunday night.

Sat, 23 May 2015 08:18:20 -0700

Texas Rangers C Robinson Chirinos is not in the starting lineup Saturday, May 23. C Carlos Corporan will be the starting catcher for the Rangers.

Fantasy Tip: Chirinos ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return to the lineup soon. Corporan ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has not done much in his limited playing time this season and is not a great option on FantasyScore.

Rangers | Leonys Martin will not start

Sat, 23 May 2015 08:05:26 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Leonys Martin is not in the starting lineup Saturday, May 23. OF Delino DeShields Jr. will move to center field while OF Jake Smolinski will start in left field.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return soon. Smolinski has seen limited playing time this season and should not be an option for fantasy owners.

Rangers | Prince Fielder belts a pair

Fri, 22 May 2015 20:04:43 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Prince Fielder went 2-for-5 with two home runs and four RBIs in a 10-9 win over the New York Yankees Friday, May 22, notching his first multi-homer game since April 5, 2013.

Fantasy Tip: Fielder ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) is hitting .341 this year and has 13 RBIs in his last 11 games. With his power starting to come around, he makes a solid play at FantasyScore right now.

Rangers | Kyle Blanks to the DL

Fri, 22 May 2015 13:41:02 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Kyle Blanks (undisclosed) went on the 15-day disabled list with a cyst in an undisclosed location Friday, May 22. OF Jake Smolinski will return to the majors to replace him.

Fantasy Tip: Blanks ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) lost his everyday role as a starter at first base once Mitch Moreland came off the DL recently, so he had become an afterthought at FantasyScore. Smolinski is likely to be a bench option with Delino DeShields Jr. moving into a starting role in the outfield and with Josh Hamilton's (shoulder) debut on the horizon next week.

Rangers | Delino DeShields hitting leadoff

Fri, 22 May 2015 12:50:05 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. is in the leadoff spot Friday, May 22, against the New York Yankees. OF Shin-Soo Choo is in the second spot.

Fantasy Tip: DeShields ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is 6-for-22 with two stolen bases over the past week, so the Rangers may want some speed atop the lineup. Choo ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) has a .267 average (8-for-30) and one home run in that same period.

Rangers | Shawn Tolleson gets second save

Thu, 21 May 2015 19:55:56 -0700

Texas Rangers RP Shawn Tolleson recorded his second consecutive save Thursday, May 21, against the Boston Red Sox. Tolleson worked a scoreless ninth-inning for the second day in a row, after picking up the first save of his career Wednesday night.

Fantasy Tip: Tolleson has been favored over Neftali Feliz in back-to-back games and is strengthening his hold on the Rangers' closer job. Tolleson is worth adding in mixed leagues of 12 teams or more.
