Rangers | Joey Gallo starting in left field

Wed, 02 Sep 2015 15:37:28 -0700

Texas Rangers 3B Joey Gallo is starting in left field and batting eighth against San Diego Padres SP Ian Kennedy Wednesday, Sept. 2. OF Will Venable and 1B Mitch Moreland are not in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to avoid Moreland ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) and Venable ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) in all fantasy formats Wednesday. Moreland is out without the option to use a designated hitter, and Venable could enter a timeshare in the outfield with Gallo back with the big club. Gallo hit .218 with five home runs, 13 RBIs and a .448 slugging percentage through 25 games earlier this season. He is a high-risk, high-reward daily option.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland sitting Monday

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 14:29:36 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland is not in the starting lineup against the San Diego Padres Monday, Aug. 31.

Fantasy Tip: Without the option to utilize a designated hitter, Moreland ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) draws out Monday. He could see a start in the series, but don't count on it. Seasonal owners should make adjustments to account for his likely lineup absences.

Rangers | Mike Napoli batting fifth vs. Jays

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 14:02:01 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mike Napoli is starting at first base and batting fifth against Toronto Blue Jays SP David Price Wednesday, Aug. 26. 1B Mitch Moreland is not in the starting lineup Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Napoli ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) is 7-for-22 with two home runs since joining the Rangers, but the matchup against Price ($9,600, 19.2% of cap) makes Napoli an incredibly risky play at FantasyScore. Moreland ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) and Napoli project to split duty going forward at first base and serving as the designated hitter. Prince Fielder ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) is also in the mix, but he'll receive the most playing time of the three.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland breaks out

Sun, 23 Aug 2015 14:39:33 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland broke a 2-for-21 slump by hitting a two-run double on Sunday, Aug. 23, against the Detroit Tigers. It was his 20th multi-RBI game of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Moreland ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has been decent in August with a .303 average, but he has a .105 mark in the last week. Hopefully this is a sign he is shaking the rust off, but keep him away from your lineup for another game until he proves it.

Rangers | Mike Napoli playing first base

Sun, 16 Aug 2015 11:09:32 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mike Napoli will bat fifth against Tampa Bay Rays SP Drew Smyly Sunday, Aug. 16. 1B Mitch Moreland is not in the starting lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Napoli ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) is receiving the start this afternoon because the Rangers are facing a left-handed pitcher. He is hitting .222 with seven home runs and 16 RBIs in 99 at-bats against southpaws this year. Since being traded to Texas, he is 0-for-7 with a walk and a run scored.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland has career day

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 16:11:22 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland had four RBI on a career-high four hits in the team's win over the Minnesota Twins Thursday, Aug. 13. He also hit a two-run home run on the day and finished a triple short of the cycle. Moreland also set a new career high with 61 RBI on the season.

Fantasy Tip: Moreland ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has become a lineup regular during his career year with Texas. It's probably best to stray away from him in daily leagues against lefties, though; only two of his 17 home runs have come against southpaws this season.

Rangers | Mike Napoli in lineup Saturday

Sat, 08 Aug 2015 10:44:39 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mike Napoli will bat fifth against Seattle Mariners SP Mike Montgomery Saturday, Aug. 8. 1B Mitch Moreland is receiving the day off.

Fantasy Tip: This will be Napoli's ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) first game in his second tour of duty with the Rangers. He is batting .229 with seven home runs and 16 RBIs against southpaws this year and is hitting .267 overall since the All-Star break.

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.
