Rangers | Jurickson Profar, Ryan Rua starting

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 16:07:18 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar is starting at second base and is hitting leadoff against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago Wednesday, July 20, while OF Ryan Rua sees a start in left field and is batting cleanup. 2B Rougned Odor is serving as the designated hitter and is batting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Both Profar and Rua should see more opportunities for playing time with Shin-Soo Choo (back) and Prince Fielder (neck) on the DL. Profar is the more attractive fantasy asset in all formats with his .316/.364/.451 line and multiposition eligibility, but Rua can be employed when facing left-handers in deep mixed, AL-only and daily games.

Rangers | Jurickson Profar to see more playing time

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 15:49:07 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar and OF Ryan Rua will see more opportunities at first base with 1B Prince Fielder (neck) on the disabled list. 2B Hanser Alberto will be used as a middle infield backup. 3B/OF Joey Gallo was not called up from the minor leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Between first base and outfield with Shin-Soo Choo (back) also on the DL, Profar will likely be an everyday player for the foreseeable future. Profar's .316/.364/.451 slash line with four homers and 14 RBI in 133 at-bats demand attention in all fantasy leagues now. Gallo remains one of the most intriguing prospects yet to make an impact at the big league level this year. His elite power make him stash-worthy in keeper and AL-only leagues, and he could be a trade chip this summer.

Rangers | Texas sitting three players

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 11:16:21 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Nomar Mazara, 1B Mitch Moreland and C Robinson Chirinos are not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone Sunday, July 10. 3B Adrian Beltre will serve as the designated hitter, while 1B Prince Fielder will start at first base. OF Ryan Rua will start at left field and is batting fourth. 2B Jurickson Profar will start at third base and is batting sixth. C Bobby Wilson will start at catcher and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Rua is hitting .348 with three home runs and eight RBI against left-handed pitchers this season and should be a fine option in daily fantasy leagues. Profar is hitting only.208 over the last seven days but should still be a starting candidate for owners. Wilson is hitting only .231 this season and should be avoided in most leagues.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo, Mitch Moreland out

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 11:58:31 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo (back) and 1B Mitch Moreland are not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 6. OF Ryan Rua is starting in left field and is hitting sixth, while 2B Jurickson Profar is starting at first base and batting leadoff against Boston Red Sox SP Steven Wright. 2B Rougned Odor moves up to third in the order, while OF Nomar Mazara is dropped to seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Choo is often injured, and he could need a DL stint if his injury doesn't improve. Stay tuned. Profar has been a big-time contributor for the Rangers when he's played, hitting .333/.373/.468 with three home runs and 13 RBI in 111 at-bats. He's a fine selection in DFS today against the knuckleballer. Rua has hit well this year, but he's batting only .227 against righties this year and should be faded in daily play.

Rangers | Nomar Mazara, Mitch Moreland out

Tue, 05 Jul 2016 11:47:20 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Nomar Mazara and 1B Mitch Moreland are not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox left-handed SP David Price Tuesday, July 5. OF Ryan Rua is starting in left field and hitting cleanup, while 2B Jurickson Profar is at first base and batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Rua is in a prime lineup position to return nice daily value tonight, and he's also batting .361 (22-for-61) with three of his seven home runs against lefties this year. Profar has done nothing but produce for Texas when in the lineup, but his lineup position leaves his daily upside minimal.

Rangers | Nomar Mazara on the bench

Sat, 02 Jul 2016 08:31:35 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Nomar Mazara is not in the starting lineup against Minnesota Twins SP Tyler Duffey Saturday, July 2. OF Ryan Rua will start in left field and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Rua has only one hit in his last eight games but is hitting a solid .278 on the season. Owners in most leagues should be able to find better options for their lineup and can avoid Rua.

Rangers | Nomar Mazara out of Tuesday lineup

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 12:51:35 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Nomar Mazara is not in the lineup Tuesday, June 28, against the New York Yankees. OF Ryan Rua is in left field and will bat fifth against Yankees SP CC Sabathia.

Fantasy Tip: Mazara is a casualty of a lefty vs. lefty matchup, so don't be surprised to see him available for pinch-hit duty. Rua only has one hit in his past seven games so he carries little, if any, fantasy value.
