Rangers | Josh Hamilton out again

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 04:54:49 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton (groin) was out of the lineup Sunday, July 5, due to what was called a mild groin issue.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) is not a candidate for the disabled list as of yet, but stay tuned. Hamilton has had a hard time staying healthy as of late, so you may want to wait until he is healthy and even allow an extra day or two to recover.

Rangers | Colby Lewis rocked Sunday

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 04:43:37 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Colby Lewis allowed 12 hits and 10 earned runs in four innings of work Sunday, July 5, in a 12-6 loss to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) suffered just his fourth loss of the season, and he does have an 8-4 record. Lewis has had a good year and he was 4-1 with a 5.00 ERA in his last seven appearances. Chalk this up to bad luck.

Rangers | Leonys Martin not in Sunday lineup

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 14:08:30 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Leonys Martin is not in the starting lineup Sunday, July 5, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. 2B Adam Rosales is batting in Martin's place.

Fantasy Tip: Like with Shin-Soo Choo, Martin ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) appears to be getting a normal night off, as he hasn't had one this week. Rosales ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has hit .176 in the past month and carries little fantasy value.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo out of Sunday lineup

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 14:05:01 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo is not in the starting lineup Sunday, July 5, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. OF Ryan Rua is in Choo's place.

Fantasy Tip: This appears to be a normal night off for Choo ($3,500, 7.0% of cap), who has been in all six games this week leading up to Sunday. Rua ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) carries little fantasy value with a .182 average in the past week.

Rangers | Delino DeShields activated

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 14:01:01 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. (hamstring) came off the 15-day disabled list and is hitting leadoff Sunday, July 5, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. 2B Hanser Alberto was optioned to Class AAA Round Rock in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: DeShields ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) may need a day or two to get acclimated again, so keep an eye on how he does before putting any money down in FantasyScore formats.

Rangers | Wandy Rodriguez lit up at home

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 05:18:38 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Wandy Rodriguez fell to 0-4 in six home starts this season Saturday, July 4. Rodriguez has a 7.42 ERA at home.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is 5-0 on the road, which makes him a very disappointing FantasyScore asset. While his home/road splits are bound to even out eventually, Rodriguez has a 4.28 xFIP, and he's not usually worth FantasyScore consideration.

Rangers | Carlos Corporan starting

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 14:36:20 -0700

Texas Rangers C Carlos Corporan is making the start behind the plate Saturday, July 4, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Corporan will hit eighth in the order against LHP Hector Santiago, while C Robinson Chirinos comes out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Corporan ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has gone 4-for-10 in his last three starts, with one double and one home run. FantasyScore owners can consider Corporan for use in GPP tournaments.

Rangers | Josh Hamilton out today

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 14:35:03 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton is out of the lineup Saturday, July 4, with OF Ryan Rua in his place hitting second.

Fantasy Tip: Rua ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) is hitting just .208 with three solo homers this season, and he's not much of an option on FantasyScore.

Rangers | No Josh Hamilton Saturday

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 14:28:45 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton isn't in the starting lineup Saturday, July 4, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. OF Ryan Rua will start in left field and hit second in the order against LHP Hector Santiago.

Fantasy Tip: Rua ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) is hitting just .182 against southpaws this season, and he should be avoided on FantasyScore, even with the high spot in the batting order.

Rangers | Matt Harrison to debut Wednesday

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 14:23:03 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Matt Harrison will make his first start since May of 2014, Wednesday, July 8, against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Harrison was 1-3 in five starts at Class AAA. Harrison's ERA was an unimpressive 5.97, and he was only striking out 5.65 batters per nine innings. FantasyScore owners will need to see some positive results before investing in the Rangers' one-time ace.

Rangers | Alex Gonzalez optioned

Sat, 04 Jul 2015 14:22:17 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Alex Gonzalez was optioned Saturday, July 4.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) opened the season with four strong starts, but he's been roughed up in two of his last three. Gonzalez wasn't able to strikeout more than four batters in any one of his seven starts this season, and he's unlikely to re-emerge as a fantasy option.

Rangers | Matt Harrison could start Tuesday

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 20:04:58 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Matt Harrison (back) will be activated from the 60-day disabled list Friday, July 3, according to general manager Jon Daniels. Harrison is expected to make his season debut Tuesday, July 7, against the Arizona Diamondbacks, manager Jeff Banister said.

Fantasy Tip: Coming off a long layoff, you can afford to take a wait-and-see approach with Harrison before considering him as an option FantasyScore.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland hitting second

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 14:04:17 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland is hitting second against Baltimore Orioles SP Kevin Gausman Thursday, July 2.

Fantasy Tip: Moreland ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is 12-for-37 (.324) with six home runs and 10 RBI since June 23 even after going 0-for-4 with two strikeouts last night. His 14 homers show he has plenty of power to spare, and he makes for a great value play on FantasyScore while he's hot, especially against Gausman, who is making only his second start this season.

Rangers | Neftali Feliz recalled

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 13:00:41 -0700

Texas Rangers RP Neftali Feliz (side) was recalled from Class AAA Round Rock Thursday, July 2.

Fantasy Tip: Feliz had been on an extended rehab assignment which began Saturday, June 6. He was working his way back from surgery Saturday, May 23, to remove an abscess on his right side. Feliz will return to the bullpen and potentially work his way into save chances. However, since Shawn Tollenson recorded his first save Wednesday, May 20, he has a 1.65 ERA, 11 total saves and a firm grasp on the closer role. Feliz is nothing more than a desperation add in the majority of formats at this point.

Rangers | Nick Martinez sent down

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 12:31:00 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Nick Martinez was optioned to Class AAA Round Rock Thursday, July 2.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) had allowed 23 earned runs in 35 innings over six starts since June 3 after a nice start in the Texas rotation. It's unknown who will replace Martinez in the rotation. Stay tuned. With Matt Harrison and Derek Holland both nearing returns, though, Martinez may not get another chance.
