Rangers | Texas adds Tom Wilhelmsen

Mon, 16 Nov 2015 14:56:58 -0800

The Texas Rangers acquired RP Tom Wilhelmsen from the Seattle Mariners in exchange for OF Leonys Martin Monday, Nov. 16, according to sources. There are expected to be other players involved in the deal.

Fantasy Tip: Wilhelmsen has closer experience, but he is likely best suited for a set-up role. Therefore, his fantasy value is limited to AL-only and cavernous mixed leagues, and even there he is a low-end option. However, he is an arm to watch, as he could land in save situations given his experience.

Rangers | Yovani Gallardo declines qualifying offer

Fri, 13 Nov 2015 06:40:09 -0800

Free-agent SP Yovani Gallardo (Rangers) declined the Texas Rangers' one-year, $15.8 million qualifying offer Friday, Nov. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Gallardo had a decent year with a 3.42 ERA in a hitter's park. However, his K-rate was just 5.91, which was the lowest of his career. He turns 30 in spring training, and he's little more than depth for your fantasy rotation right now.

Rangers | TEX could bring back Colby Lewis

Thu, 12 Nov 2015 18:14:40 -0800

The Texas Rangers are reportedly interested in bringing back free-agent SP Colby Lewis.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis, who turned 36 in August, went 17-9 in 33 starts last season but posted a 4.66 ERA and 1.24 WHIP and is coming off surgery to replace the torn meniscus in his left knee. He's not much more than a late-round flier in single-universe and deep mixed leagues.

Rangers | Josh Hamilton had more surgery

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 10:22:33 -0800

Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton (knee) had another minor cleanup surgery on his left knee two weeks ago and has started his rehab without issues.

Fantasy Tip: As if Hamilton's injury history wasn't extensive enough, he'll be coming off more knee problems entering the 2016 at age 34. No fantasy owners will want to spend much on an oft-injured player at that age, making Hamilton nothing more than a late-round flier in really deep mixed leagues.

Rangers | Mike Napoli could play LF

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 10:05:41 -0800

Free-agent 1B Mike Napoli (Rangers) could receive a look in left field if he re-signs with the Texas Rangers, according to general manager Jon Daniels.

Fantasy Tip: Nap hit 18 homers with 50 RBIs in 407 at-bats last season and would remain an option in the later rounds if he re-ups with Texas.

Rangers | Leonys Martin to be tendered

Wed, 11 Nov 2015 10:05:16 -0800

Texas Rangers OF Leonys Martin will be tendered a contract this offseason, according to general manager Jon Daniels.

Fantasy Tip: Martin had a miserable .219-5-25 season in 2015, but he did swipe 14 bags. He could be a fringe outfield option in mixed leagues with a good spring.

Rangers | Yu Darvish to stop throwing

Tue, 10 Nov 2015 12:33:34 -0800

Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish (elbow) is headed back to Japan, where he will not throw for the next five to six weeks. Darvish will resume throwing in January in Texas.

Fantasy Tip: This is not a setback for Darvish, merely part of his rehab plan. Darvish will go down many draft boards because of his Tommy John surgery, maybe even to the late rounds in mixed drafts.

Rangers | Jurickson Profar to play SS

Tue, 10 Nov 2015 12:27:34 -0800

Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar may play shortstop when spring training opens in 2016.

Fantasy Tip: Profar has played at DH during Arizona Fall League games, and it appears Rougned Odor is blocking Profar's path back to second. Profar may start next season at Triple-A, so right now he projects as a pickup in keeper and dynasty leagues only.

Rangers | Shawn Tolleson attracting interest

Tue, 10 Nov 2015 09:53:52 -0800

Texas Rangers RP Shawn Tolleson is attracting trade interest from other teams already this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Tolleson did a fantastic job stepping into the closer role for Texas last year, with a 2.99 ERA and 35 saves in 72 1/3 innings pitched. He'll likely be the closer entering the year if he isn't dealt, but given his inexperience before this year in the role (zero previous saves), he's more of a low-end closing target for fantasy owners.

Rangers | Yovani Gallardo receives qualifying offer

Fri, 06 Nov 2015 15:04:24 -0800

Texas Rangers SP Yovani Gallardo received a $15.8 million qualifying offer from the team.

Fantasy Tip: While there were some perks to Gallardo's 2015 season (13 wins and a 3.42 ERA), his 1.42 WHIP and 5.9 K/9 were anchor statistics. Another year in the American League should also bring more familiarity for opposing hitters against Gallardo, which doesn't bode well for him improving his fantasy value in 2016. Gallardo should be viewed as a cavernous mixed and AL-only option, and in shallower formats, he is an arm to spot start in favorable matchups.

Rangers | Prince Fielder wins comeback award

Thu, 05 Nov 2015 09:30:44 -0800

Texas Rangers 1B Prince Fielder was named the American League Comeback Player of the Year Thursday, Nov. 5.

Fantasy Tip: Fielder bounced back with a .305-23-98 season, but it fell short of the 40-homer season some pegged him for in Texas. He'll be in the upper echelon at the position in next year's drafts.

Rangers | TEX to talk deal with Rougned Odor

Wed, 28 Oct 2015 00:17:38 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Rougned Odor and the team will talk about a long-term deal in the offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Odor hit .292 with 15 home runs once he was recalled from the minors in June, and projected over a full season Odor could create quite a ruckus at second base in 2016.

Rangers | Adrian Beltre undergoes surgery

Sat, 24 Oct 2015 06:12:22 -0700

Texans Rangers 3B Adrian Beltre (thumb) underwent surgery on his left thumb Friday, Oct. 23, to repair a damaged ligament in his thumb. Beltre is expected to be ready for the start of spring training.

Fantasy Tip: Beltre will have plenty of time to recover from the surgery and should be ready for spring training. He has seen a drop in his home runs over the last few years but still has posted a solid batting average and RBI totals. Beltre probably will be a middle-round option in most mixed leagues next season.

Rangers | Jurickson Profar to AFL

Fri, 23 Oct 2015 02:02:13 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar (shoulder) has joined the active roster in the Arizona Fall League.

Fantasy Tip: Profar has been a disappointment largely because he was so overhyped, yet shoulder injuries have made him an afterthought with the emergence of Delino DeShields and Rougned Odor. Still, wait and see how his rehab progresses. If he gets his hitting and power back, Profar could be a darkhorse.
