The Texas Rangers recalled INF Adam Rosales from Triple-A Round Rock Monday, June 30, and optioned INF Luis Sardinas in a corresponding move.
Fantasy Tip: Rosales will provide the beat up Rangers infield some depth and versatility. Consider stashing him if you're in need of infield help in deep AL leagues.

Updating a previous report, Texas Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said Wednesday, March 26, that 3B Donnie Murphy, claimed off waivers, is likely to be on the opening day roster, although the team is still evaluating its second base and utility situations. Infielders Adam Rosales, Kensuke Tanaka and Joshua Wilson are still in camp.

Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar (shoulder) won't need surgery to fix a slight tear in the teres major muscle in his right shoulder, and he's expected to have four to six weeks of limited baseball activities before easing back into a throwing program. Profar injured his shoulder Saturday, March 22, while making a relay throw. The team is unsure if they'll use SSs Joshua Wilson or Adam Rosales to replace Profar at second base.
Fantasy Tip: Profar should be fine for the second half of the season, but he likely won't make much of an impact before the All-Star break. If you're in a deep league, you might not be able to afford cutting him if you have DL spots to play with. None of the replacements at the keystone on Texas' roster are worth bidding on.

Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar (shoulder) will miss 10-12 weeks with a torn teres major muscle.
Fantasy Tip: This is tough news for the kid, who was having a decent spring. He can be dumped in mixed leagues. Adam Rosales is in line to take over at second base, but he presents very little value outside of depth in AL-only leagues.

The Texas Rangers have reassigned INF/OF Brent Lillibridge to their minor league camp. This means that Joshua Wilson and Adam Rosales are battling for the utility infielder spot on the 25-man roster.

Texas Rangers SS Elvis Andrus (elbow) will miss another week with a sore right elbow, and the plan is for him to start a seven-day throwing program starting Saturday, March 22, before returning to game action. The team's last exhibition game is next Saturday, March 29. Andrus will receive at-bats in a minor league game Friday, March 21.
Fantasy Tip: Andrus almost certainly won't be full speed in time for opening day, and there's a decent chance he'll need to start on the disabled list. In the event Andrus starts on the DL, Adam Rosales can fill in at the 6 for the short term.
