Rangers | Mitch Moreland, Shin-Soo Choo out

Fri, 31 Jul 2015 16:20:17 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland and OF Shin-Soo Choo are not in the starting lineup against San Francisco Giants left-handed SP Madison Bumgarner Friday, July 31. 2B Adam Rosales is starting at first base and hitting seventh, while OF Ryan Rua gets the start in left field and is hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Rua ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) and Rosales ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) are both weak FantasyScore options to begin with, and facing MadBum means you should definitely look to avoid them everywhere in daily games.

Rangers | No Mitch Moreland against Yankees

Thu, 30 Jul 2015 14:25:36 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 30. OF Ryan Rua draws into the lineup in left field, and he is batting sixth against New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Moreland ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) in all fantasy formats Thursday. With a lefty on the hill, it is an opportunity to provide him a night off. Rua ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) is batting .197 this season, and he should be viewed as nothing more than a low-priced flier for FantasyScore contests Thursday.

Sun, 26 Jul 2015 11:31:56 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland is batting fifth against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Andrew Heaney Sunday, July 26.

Fantasy Tip: Moreland ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is only batting .203 with two home runs and six RBIs through 59 at-bats this month. FantasyScore owners should be able to find far better options at first base.

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 15:45:37 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland is out of the lineup Saturday, July 25, against a left-handed starter. 2B Adam Rosales is playing first and hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Rosales ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has a .235-3-7 line this year and isn't worth a start on FantasyScore.

Rangers | Prince Fielder resting Wednesday

Wed, 22 Jul 2015 10:25:39 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Prince Fielder is out of the lineup Wednesday, July 22, with 1B Mitch Moreland hitting cleanup in Coors Field.

Fantasy Tip: Moreland ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) faces lefty Jorge De La Rosa, and he has just a .256-2-7 line against lefties this year. Moreland is still a solid midrange choice on FantasyScore in the hitter's paradise.

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 14:49:37 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland is out for the third straight game Tuesday, July 21, against the Colorado Rockies.

Fantasy Tip: Moreland ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is out because of his .208 batting average overall, and the fact this game is in a National League park with no DH.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland not in the lineup

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 14:14:24 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland is not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Chris Rusin Monday, July 20. 1B Prince Fielder will start at first base since there is no designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Moreland ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) may not see much playing time against the Rockies since Fielder should remain in the lineup. Moreland likely will return when the team plays another American League team.

Fantasy Tip: Rosales ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is hitting just .226 against lefties this season, with 10 singles and two home runs. FantasyScore owners will be able to find far better options.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland slugging among the best

Wed, 15 Jul 2015 14:42:07 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland's .532 slugging percentage is the seventh-highest mark in the American League. He also currently has 16 home runs and 46 RBI.

Fantasy Tip: Moreland ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has been incredibly inconsistent from game-to-game, which makes him a risky FantasyScore play. However, he has huge upside. In seasonal formats, he is a great source of power and should be owned in all formats while hitting well.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland homers twice

Sun, 12 Jul 2015 03:58:00 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland had two home runs Saturday, July 11, in a 6-5 loss to the San Diego Padres.

Fantasy Tip: Moreland ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) has rebounded nicely from his lost 2014 season and, aside from a DL stint in early May, this year has progressed nicely. He has a .289-16-46 overall line and should be played mostly against right-handers and on the road (11 homers away from Texas).
