Rangers | Price Fielder, Mitch Moreland out

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 14:27:55 -0700

Texas Rangers 1Bs Prince Fielder and Mitch Moreland are not in the starting lineup against New York Yankees left-handed SP CC Sabathia Wednesday, April 27. OF Ryan Rua is the designated hitter and is batting fifth, while 2B Hanser Alberto is at first base and is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Rua hits much better in his short career against left-handers (.287 with three of his six homers), so he could be a deep sleeper worth pursuing in daily formats. Alberto has just two hits in 14 at-bats (.143) and hit .222 in 99 at-bats in 2015. He's one to avoid.

Fantasy Tip: Against Keuchel, both Alberto and Rua shouldn't gain much traction in daily formats Thursday. Look elsewhere.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland out vs. lefty

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 15:07:26 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland is not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners left-handed SP Wade Miley Tuesday, April 12. OF Ryan Rua takes over at first base and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Rua did have three hits last night but is just .267 (23-for-86) with three of his six career home runs against left-handed pitchers. He's also hitting at the bottom of Texas' order, which doesn't make him very attractive to daily gamers.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland to stick at 1B

Mon, 22 Feb 2016 22:36:52 -0800

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland had the best season of his career in 2015 after finding a regular home at first base, with 1B Prince Fielder working as the designated hitter.

Fantasy Tip: Moreland proved to the team that it was the right decision. He won't sneak up on anyone this season, but he is a solid mid-tier fantasy option with some power potential and a decent average.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland played with injury

Wed, 17 Feb 2016 10:28:04 -0800

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland (foot) admitted that he played the final two months last season with a stress fracture in his left foot. Moreland said his foot is completely healed.

Fantasy Tip: Moreland's numbers dipped a bit in the second half with a .269-7-39 line after a .286-16-46 first half. He's a midrange option at the position that would make a really good CI for your roster.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland avoids arbitration

Wed, 10 Feb 2016 05:39:29 -0800

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland avoided arbitration Tuesday, Feb. 10, by signing a one-year, $5.7 million deal.

Fantasy Tip: Moreland enjoyed a .278-23-85 rebound season last year, but the batting average was a career high for the 30-year-old. His numbers have fluctuated over the years, but he's a decent MI option in fantasy.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland files for arbitration

Sun, 17 Jan 2016 07:33:29 -0800

Texas Rangers 1B/DH Mitch Moreland has filed for salary arbitration. He is seeking a one-year deal worth $6 million while the team has countered with a $4.65 million offer.

Fantasy Tip: Moreland hit .278 with 23 home runs and 85 RBIs in 132 regular-season contests last year while earning $2.95 million. He is a midrange first baseman who should be selected once the big names come off the draft board.

Orioles | Baltimore interested in Mitch Moreland

Tue, 08 Dec 2015 10:22:13 -0800

The Baltimore Orioles are interested in trading for Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Already residing in a nice hitter's environment, a move to Baltimore and Camden Yards wouldn't really change Moreland's fantasy outlook all that much. The lefty first baseman slugged 23 home runs and drove in 85 runs last year, though, and he's certainly a fine fallback plan at the position once the big names are off the board.

Pirates | Mitch Moreland headed to Bucs?

Mon, 07 Dec 2015 09:57:28 -0800

The Texas Rangers and Pittsburgh Pirates are discussing a trade that would involve Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Moreland really showed his potential with Texas last year, hitting .278 (131-for-471) with 23 home runs and 85 RBI. He can repeat his 20-homer season easily, even with a move to Pittsburgh. However, leaving the friendly hitting confines of Globe Life Park could cause fantasy owners to devalue him a tad.
