Rangers | Delino DeShields out of Sunday lineup

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 11:49:58 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. is not in the lineup Sunday, Aug. 2, against the San Francisco Giants. OF Leonys Martin is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: DeShields ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is hitting .143 against San Francisco pitching, which may have been a factor in the decision to give him an off day. Martin ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is 1-for-2 against Giants starter Mike Leake, so it may be worth the purchase on FantasyScore.

Rangers | Delino DeShields not starting

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 16:41:50 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. is not in the starting lineup Monday, July 27. OF Leonys Martin is starting in center field and hitting eighth against New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has struggled mightily this season and has five hits in 28 at-bats (.179) in July with only one RBI. His struggles at the dish have made him a bench player of late, too. He's not a good daily pick until he shows signs of breaking his slump.

Rangers | Leonys Martin struggling against righties

Wed, 15 Jul 2015 12:26:34 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Leonys Martin has a .263 on-base percentage against right-handed pitchers this year, and he has lost considerable playing time to OF Delino DeShields Jr. recently. Martin's OBP ranks 92nd in baseball among 94 left-handed hitters with at least 150 plate appearances against righties in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) isn't worth owning in shallow mixed leagues, and you could now make the argument that he's unusable in deep mixed formats, too, with a loss of playing time. DeShields ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) continues to be valuable for his stolen base ability as long as he's consistently in the lineup.

Rangers | Josh Hamilton not in the lineup

Sun, 12 Jul 2015 10:54:19 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton is not in the starting lineup against San Diego Padres SP Tyson Ross Sunday, July 12. OF Delino DeShields Jr. will start in left field, while OF Leonys Martin will start in center field and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) likely will return to the lineup after the All-Star break. Martin ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has at least one hit in six of his last nine games and could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore to consider.

Rangers | Leonys Martin not in Sunday lineup

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 14:08:30 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Leonys Martin is not in the starting lineup Sunday, July 5, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. 2B Adam Rosales is batting in Martin's place.

Fantasy Tip: Like with Shin-Soo Choo, Martin ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) appears to be getting a normal night off, as he hasn't had one this week. Rosales ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has hit .176 in the past month and carries little fantasy value.

Rangers | Leonys Martin back in lineup

Sun, 28 Jun 2015 07:48:27 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Leonys Martin is back in the starting lineup Sunday, June 28, against the Toronto Blue Jays. Martin will start in center field and hit eighth in the order against RHP Drew Hutchison. OF Ryan Rua comes out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Martin's ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) biggest upside comes in the stolen base category, as he has 12 on the season. Martin is hitting just .222 against righties, and he should be avoided against Drew Hutchison, who has been dominant when pitching at home.

Rangers | Leonys Martin on the bench

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 08:31:55 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Leonys Martin is not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP Matt Boyd Saturday, June 27. 3B Joey Gallo will start in center field and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return in the next game or two. Gallo ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) has four hits in his last eight games and is batting only .125 against left-handed pitchers, so owners on FantasyScore may want to look at other options.

Rangers | Leonys Martin in June funk

Fri, 26 Jun 2015 16:36:31 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Leonys Martin has seen his average drop to .227 and his on-base percentage to .270 in the month of June, and he's hitless in his last 11 at-bats and 2-for-33 entering Friday, June 26, since his average peaked this year at .255 on June 14. The Rangers don't really have any other options to play center field right now, so Martin will be allowed to fight through his slump. However, OFs Josh Hamilton (hamstring) and Delino DeShields Jr. (hamstring) are both nearing returns and can both play center field. Martin is 7-for-44 (.159) against left-handed pitchers since May 1.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($4,100, 8.2% of cap) shouldn't have been in many FantasyScore lineups tonight while facing Toronto Blue Jays left-hander Mark Buehrle. Expect Martin to lose valuable playing time once both Hamilton and DeShields return to action.

Rangers | Texas has struggled against Sonny Gray

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 10:01:19 -0700

Texas Rangers SS Elvis Andrus, OF Leonys Martin, 3B Adrian Beltre, 2B Rougned Odor and C Robinson Chirinos are a combined .128 (14-for-109) in their careers against Oakland Athletics SP Sonny Gray, who they face Thursday, June 25.

Fantasy Tip: None of the players mentioned for Texas are hitting particularly well at this time, either, so it's best to stay away from them on FantasyScore this afternoon. Beltre ($4,800, 9.6% of cap), who came off the DL early the other day, is still swinging with pain in his thumb.

Rangers | Leonys Martin batting eighth

Thu, 04 Jun 2015 13:25:39 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Leonys Martin is starting in center field and batting eighth against the Chicago White Sox Thursday, June 4.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) has been better of late, and his seasonal value is on the rise with Josh Hamilton (hamstring) out for approximately a month. Martin has an active 13-for-40 streak with six runs, two home runs, eight RBI, a stolen base and a .325/.357/.575 slash line. FantasyScore players have a risk/reward play on their hands Thursday, as Martin faces capable-lefty Carlos Rodon.
