Rangers | Kyle Blanks making season debut

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 13:41:19 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Kyle Blanks, who was called up from the minors earlier in the day, is starting at first base and hitting seventh in the batting order against Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez Wednesday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: Blanks will be a cheap FantasyScore option with Mitch Moreland (elbow) on the disabled list. He's worth a look in deep AL-only leagues for his fleeting value, but he won't help you in average, and he has only hit double-digit home runs once back in 2009. Avoid him in daily games Wednesday against King Felix.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland going under knife

Wed, 29 Apr 2015 06:00:36 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland (elbow) will undergo surgery Wednesday, April 29, to remove loose bodies from his left elbow. "I'd probably miss more time two or three days at a time trying to wait it out than we would just than we would just going ahead and getting it out," Moreland said. "Being back in a couple of weeks, I think that's the plan going in and cleaning up the bone chips and being ready to go at that 15-day mark." 1B Kyle Blanks is likely to come up from Triple-A Round Rock.

Fantasy Tip: Blanks has good power, and now that he's out of San Diego and in the Arlington jet stream, he's a player to watch.

Rangers | Kyle Blanks coming up

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 21:16:41 -0700

The Texas Rangers will promote 1B Kyle Blanks from Triple-A Round Rock Wednesday, April 29. He will replace 1B Mitch Moreland (elbow) on the active roster.

Fantasy Tip: Blanks has been flexing his muscle on the farm, hitting .327 with three homers and 11 RBIs for the Express. He could be a cheap source of power for FantasyScore owners, and he always has been since his time in San Diego. His biggest problem is being able to stay healthy and hit for average.
