Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($3,400; or 6.8% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore until he can play at least one full game without any setbacks.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland swats pair of homers

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 21:37:32 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland belted a pair of home runs Monday, June 29, against the Baltimore Orioles, finishing with three RBIs. It was his sixth-career multi-homer game, and first since May 2013.

Fantasy Tip: Moreland ($3,800; or 7.6% of cap) has had a fruitful June, hitting .313 (30-for-96) with four doubles, seven homers and 21 RBIs in 24 games in the current month to make him a FantasyScore steal at this price level.

Rangers | Wandy Rodriguez is a road warrior

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 21:36:54 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Wandy Rodriguez allowed one run while scattering eight hits over five-plus innings with seven strikeouts in a road win against the Baltimore Orioles Monday, June 29. He is 5-0 with a 2.23 ERA in eight road outings this season.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($4,900; or 9.8% of cap) has re-emerged as a respectable FantasyScore option, especially when he is pitching on the road.

Rangers | Derek Holland to have MRI

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 17:59:24 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland (shoulder) will have a follow-up MRI this week before he is cleared for the next step in his rehab. He has stretched his throwing program out to 120 feet, and the next step might be throwing from a mound.

Fantasy Tip: Holland is making his way back from a serious shoulder injury, so it's uncertain how effective he will be when he finally returns and in what capacity he will work. FantasyScore players need to let him get a few appearances under his belt before trusting him again.

Rangers | Kyle Blanks not yet cleared

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 17:53:06 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Kyle Blanks (Achilles') has not yet been cleared to resume baseball activities.

Fantasy Tip: Blanks can be a cheap source of power for FantasyScore players, but he continues to have issues staying healthy.

Rangers | Delino DeShields making progress

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 17:51:39 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. (hamstring) took a scheduled day off Monday, June 29, from his rehab stint at Triple-A Round Rock. He served as the designated hitter in two games over the weekend. He is scheduled to play in the outfield for the Express Tuesday, June 30, but manager Jeff Banister said he does not want to rush DeShields, a speed player returning from a hamstring issue.

Fantasy Tip: DeShields will not come off the 15-day disabled list until at least Friday, so FantasyScore players will want to wait until the weekend to let him prove his health and play without any setbacks.

Rangers | Josh Hamilton shortens stride

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 16:10:08 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton (hamstring) worked to shorten up his running stride in order to manage the soreness in his left hamstring. He acknowledged that he's still not 100% but said that he is ready to play center field and is expected to come off the disabled list Tuesday, June 30. Hamilton went 4-for-12 on a four-game rehab assignment and played the last two games in center field. He has a .345 career average with 11 home runs in 110 at-bats in Baltimore, where the team is playing this week.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) should be owned in all fantasy leagues, and he should contribute valuable stats if he can stay healthy and in the lineup. His return might spell a trip back to the minors for Joey Gallo ($4,600, 9.2% of cap), who would probably benefit from some more seasoning.

Rangers | Josh Hamilton not quite ready

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 13:27:36 -0700

Updating a previous report, Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton (hamstring) acknowledged while he is not 100%, he is ready to play center field Monday, June 29. He is expected to be activated from the disabled list Tuesday, June 30. "I was hoping to play today, but we decided to give me a day to recover after the travel and the workout," Hamilton added Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) projects to return to the heart of the Rangers' batting order. He is worth owning in all fantasy leagues, and at his current cap hit, FantasyScore players shouldn't be afraid to take a flier on Hamilton when he faces a favorable pitcher.

Rangers | Robinson Chirinos sitting vs. O's

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 13:13:03 -0700

Texas Rangers C Robinson Chirinos is not in the starting lineup Monday, June 29. C Carlos Corporan is starting behind the plate and batting ninth against Baltimore Orioles SP Bud Norris Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Chirinos ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) has respectable counting stats this season (21 runs, seven home runs and 26 RBI), and should be viewed as a low-end option in cavernous mixed, AL-only and two-catcher formats going forward. Corporan ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has a .544 OPS this season, and FantasyScore players should likely aim higher Monday.

Rangers | Rougned Odor jumps to leadoff spot

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 13:06:50 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Rougned Odor is batting second against Baltimore Orioles SP Bud Norris Monday, June 29.

Fantasy Tip: Odor ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has two home runs, nine RBI and a .395/.442/.632 slash line over 12 games since he was recalled from the minors. Batting leadoff adds to his already increasing value, and FantasyScore players should view Odor as a solid value play at the keystone Monday and going forward.

Rangers | Josh Hamilton on the mend

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 07:34:47 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton (hamstring) could be activated from the disabled list Monday, June 29, or Tuesday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is at a cheap price to give a shot on FantasyScore when he returns.

Rangers | Prince Fielder keeps hitting

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 16:21:02 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Prince Fielder recorded his fifth straight multi-hit game going 2-for-4 with a run scored and a walk in a 3-2 loss to the Toronto Blue Jays Sunday, June 28.

Fantasy Tip: Fielder ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) has his average up to .351, and he leads the majors with 33 multi-hit efforts. With just 12 home runs, Fielder isn't displaying his typical power, but he is enjoying his most consistent season. He is one of the safer high-priced options at FantasyScore, but there are players available in the same price range with higher ceilings.

Rangers | Leonys Martin back in lineup

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 07:48:27 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Leonys Martin is back in the starting lineup Sunday, June 28, against the Toronto Blue Jays. Martin will start in center field and hit eighth in the order against RHP Drew Hutchison. OF Ryan Rua comes out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Martin's ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) biggest upside comes in the stolen base category, as he has 12 on the season. Martin is hitting just .222 against righties, and he should be avoided against Drew Hutchison, who has been dominant when pitching at home.
