Rangers | Neck surgery likely for Prince Fielder

Mon, 25 Jul 2016 14:20:47 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Prince Fielder (neck) is expected to undergo neck surgery later this week.

Fantasy Tip: While there isn't a definitive timeline for his absence and return at this point, it doesn't sound good for Fielder bouncing back this season. In fact, his season could be finished. Don't make any hasty roster moves just yet, but be prepared to be without Fielder for the remainder of 2016. Jurickson Profar and Mitch Moreland will receive a decent to significant fantasy boost, and Joey Gallo is a player to watch because of his power potential. Stay tuned for updates.

Rangers | Texas scouted Edinson Volquez

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 19:54:14 -0700

Kansas City Royals SP Edinson Volquez was scouted by the Texas Rangers Sunday, July 24, and general manager Jon Daniels said the injuries to Texas' rotation has forced the team to consider trading for "rental" players at the deadline.

Fantasy Tip: Volquez has been pitching well of late, but he would remain an AL-only option with a move to Texas.

Rangers | Derek Holland, Colby Lewis a month away

Sun, 24 Jul 2016 16:14:25 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland (shoulder) will come off the 60-day disabled list Aug. 20, and SP Colby Lewis (lat) will come off the 60-day disabled list Aug. 21, general manager Jon Daniels said Sunday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: Holland can be left on waivers as he works his way back, but Lewis was pitching well before he went down and is worth stashing in AL-only leagues.

Rangers | Adrian Beltre drives in three

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 21:25:36 -0700

Texas Rangers 3B Adrian Beltre went 2-for-5 with a double and three-run home run Saturday, July 23, against the Kansas City Royals. It wasn't all good as Beltre was charged with his sixth error on a throw.

Fantasy Tip: Beltre has stepped it up at the plate, posting five extra-base hits (two doubles, one triple, two homers) over his past five games. He remains a solid fantasy play across all formats and a must-have DFS option while running hot.

Rangers | Nomar Mazara posts big stat line

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 21:24:32 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Nomar Mazara went 3-for-4 with a double, two-run home run, walk, two runs scored and three RBIs Saturday, July 23, against the Kansas City Royals.

Fantasy Tip: The homer was Mazara's first of July, and just his third since the start of June. Despite the fact his power has dried up a bit, he continues to hit for consistent average and remains a must-start in all AL-only fantasy leagues and some mixed formats and DFS play.

Rangers | Cole Hamels bags 11th victory

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 21:23:55 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels allowed one unearned run, five hits and three walks with four strikeouts over 5 1/3 innings in a win Saturday, July 23, against the Kansas City Royals. He threw 63 of his 105 pitches for strikes.

Fantasy Tip: Hamels lowered his ERA to 2.87, third-best in the American League. He has been ridiculous on the road, going 8-1 with a 1.71 ERA in 11 road outings with 67 strikeouts over 73 2/3 innings. Regardless of venue, he is a must-have fantasy option.

Rangers | Texas won't trade Jurickson Profar

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 17:31:46 -0700

The Texas Rangers are refusing to part with INF Jurickson Profar in any potential deal with the Tampa Bay Rays for a starting pitcher. However, the names of prospects such as 1B Ronald Guzman and SP Yohander Mendez have reportedly been discussed.

Fantasy Tip: The Rangers have been linked to Rays SP Matt Moore and Jake Odorizzi for a while but want to keep the 23-year-old Profar, who is batting .298 with four home runs and 14 RBI in 43 games. He should be owned in all leagues due to his versatility and upside and should see a great deal of playing time over the next few weeks with OF Shin-Soo Choo (back) and 1B Prince Fielder (neck) on the DL. Guzman is a 21-year-old left-handed hitter who is batting .300 with 14 home runs and 48 RBI for Class AA Frisco and Mendez is a 21-year-old lefty who is 9-2 with a 2.75 ERA in 16 starts at three different minor league levels this season, with 89 strikeouts in 78 2/3 innings. Both players should be monitored in AL-only and dynasty formats.

Rangers | Jurickson Profar leading off

Sat, 23 Jul 2016 14:24:45 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar is leading off Saturday, July 23.

Fantasy Tip: Profar is hitting .209 this month, but he has upside against Yordano Ventura in the leadoff spot.

Rangers | Yu Darvish punches out 11

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 20:53:50 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish allowed three runs, two earned, on seven hits while walking one and striking out 11 over six innings in a loss to the Kansas City Royals Friday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: Darvish has wasted little time regaining his form, punching out 39 in 26 innings over five starts, and he is rewarding fantasy owners who stashed him during the early months. With 20 strikeouts in his last two starts alone, it is also time to start considering him in DFS formats.

Rangers | Texas interested in Jose Quintana?

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 17:58:52 -0700

The Texas Rangers appear to be interested in trading for Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana.

Fantasy Tip: Quintana is 8-8 with a 3.13 ERA through 19 starts this season, with 31 walks and 112 strikeouts through 123 2/3 innings. A potential move to the Rangers would do wonders for his fantasy value, providing him with the run support he has often lacked throughout his career. However, the ChiSox may be hesitant to deal him away if they still feel they are in contention for a playoff berth.

Rangers | Delino DeShields leading off

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 16:05:37 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. is starting in left field and is hitting leadoff against Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy Friday, July 22. 1B Mitch Moreland is on the bench against a lefty, and 2B Jurickson Profar is serving as the designated hitter and batting second.

Fantasy Tip: DeShields was demoted earlier this year after he disappointed with a .217/.294/.302 line in 106 at-bats. He'll likely see limited playing time as outfield depth with Shin-Soo Choo on the DL, but he can be attractive those in AL-only leagues for his speed. Profar should see regular playing time now between first base, DH and the outfield, and his overall .304/.351/.435 line should play in all leagues. His multiposition eligibility also makes him more attractive.

Rangers | Texas pushing hard for Chris Sale

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 15:11:53 -0700

Chicago White SP Chris Sale is a serious trade target of the Texas Rangers. However, the White Sox are demanding 3B/OF Joey Gallo and/or 2B Jurickson Profar in any deal.

Fantasy Tip: Profar and Gallo are coveted assets, but Texas is also loaded with plenty of young talent. This could be a fit. The fantasy impact for Sale relocating to Texas would be negligible, but full-time at-bats for Profar and/or Gallo would be a huge fantasy boost.

Rangers | Prince Fielder's exam pushed back

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 10:19:47 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Prince Fielder's (neck) exam has been moved to Monday, July 25, instead of taking place Friday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: Fielder's scheduled for a doctor's visit that will determine whether or not he needs season-ending surgery. At this point, it's looking like the declining first baseman won't be a factor for the remainder of the campaign. If he's indeed out for the season, Mitch Moreland and Jurickson Profar will benefit the most.

Rangers | Ian Desmond hits 18th homer

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 00:34:08 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Ian Desmond hit his 18th home run of the season Wednesday, July 20, in a 7-4 loss to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Fantasy Tip: Desmond has not been doing bad at all for someone who merited just a one-year contract. Chances are that next deal will be multiple years, but who knows? For the time being, make sure he's in your starting lineup.

Rangers | Martin Perez tattooed by Halos

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 22:32:47 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez was pounded for seven earned runs, 10 hits and three walks with two strikeouts over six innings in a loss Wednesday, July 20, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Fantasy Tip: Perez has been terrible over his past three starts, as his ERA has risen from 3.39 to 4.37 just since July 1. Perez should be reserved in most fantasy formats until he can get back on track.
