Texas Rangers SP Scott Baker will make the start against the Minnesota Twins Tuesday, May 27, replacing SP Yu Darvish (neck).
Fantasy Tip: Baker was the expected replacement, and he might stay in Darvish's spot if his neck injury requires a lengthy absence from the starting rotation.

Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish (neck) has been scratched from his start Tuesday, May 27, due to a stiff neck. The team hasn't announced who will start in his place, but it'll likely be SP Scott Baker.
Fantasy Tip: This is somewhat concerning, because Darvish dealt with neck issues in the offseason, too. He'll go for an MRI exam, but until we know the results, it's impossible to predict how long he'll be out.

Texas Rangers SP Scott Baker has been demoted to the bullpen, with SP Joe Saunders moving into the starting rotation. Baker allowed six runs in six innings against the Detroit Tigers in his final start Friday, May 23, while Saunders has made four rehab starts in the minors while recovering from an ankle injury. Baker is expected to be available in long relief beginning Monday, May 26.

Texas Rangers SP Robbie Ross is being removed from the starting rotation in favor of SP Scott Baker. Baker will start against the Detroit Tigers Friday, May 23.
Fantasy Tip: Ross can now be dumped in all but the deepest of AL-only setups. Baker is a veteran that shouldn't attract much interest unless you're desperate for a warm body in an AL-only league. His start Friday against the Tigers clearly isn't a good matchup.

The Texas Rangers placed SP Martin Perez (elbow) on the 15-day disabled list with left elbow inflammation Wednesday, May 14, and recalled SPs Scott Baker and Nick Tepesch from the minors in corresponding moves. Also, P Justin Germano was designated for assignment.
Fantasy Tip: Tepesch is taking the rotation spot left by Perez. Add him in AL-only leagues if you're in need of a warm body for innings. With Perez out for at least 15 days, Tanner Scheppers (elbow) is another candidate to take his rotation spot when he's healthy.

Texas Rangers SP Scott Baker has cleared waivers and accepted an outright assignment to Triple-A Round Rock.

The Texas Rangers placed 2B Donnie Murphy (neck) on the disable list Thursday, May 8, and recalled 2B Rougned Odor, RP Justin Germano and SS Luis Sardinas. Also, the team designated 2B Joshua Wilson and RP Scott Baker for assignment.
Fantasy Tip: Odor is a top prospect of the Rangers that can hit for average, power and can run a little bit. He's a must add in all AL leagues, but he's probably merely keeping the keystone warm until Jurickson Profar can return from injury early next month.
