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.

Rangers | Josh Hamilton sitting against lefty

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 16:50:40 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton is not in the lineup against New York Yankees left-handed SP Chris Capuano Tuesday, July 28. OF Ryan Rua is starting in left field and hitting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: While Rua ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) is typically one to avoid on FantasyScore, he faces a juicy matchup against Capuano tonight and could come in handy as a deep sleeper. Despite a .179 (7-for-39) average against lefties in 2015, Rua has hit two of his three home runs off them this year.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo sitting out

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 14:28:05 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo is not in the starting lineup against Colorado Rockies SP Chris Rusin Monday, July 20. OF Ryan Rua will start in left field and is batting seventh in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Choo ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has struggled against left-handed pitchers this season, so he is receiving a day off. Rua ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) has not done much at the plate this season and probably should be avoided on FantasyScore.

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.
