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.

Rangers | Nomar Mazara not in the lineup

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 15:15:21 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Nomar Mazara is not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP David Price Friday, June 24. OF Ryan Rua will start in left field and is batting fourth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Rua has gone hitless in his last six at-bats but does have a .295 batting average in June. He will have a tough matchup Friday but should be an attractive option in daily fantasy leagues because he hits .396 against left-handed pitchers.

Rangers | Ian Desmond, Jurickson Profar out

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 14:58:36 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Ian Desmond and 2B Jurickson Profar are not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Dan Straily Wednesday, June 22. OF Ryan Rua will start in center field and is batting sixth in the lineup. 1B Prince Fielder will serve as the designated hitter, while 1B Mitch Moreland will start at first base and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Rua is hitting .310 with four home runs and 10 RBI this month and is a sleeper starting candidate for owners in daily fantasy leagues. Moreland is hitting .316 with one home run and two RBI over the last seven days and should have value in some daily fantasy leagues.

Rangers | Ian Desmond sitting vs. Reds

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 14:37:29 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Ian Desmond is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 22. OF Ryan Rua is starting in center field and batting sixth against Cincinnati Reds SP Dan Straily Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Desmond has been one of the better rebound stories in fantasy this season, as he's moving the needle across all five standard categories with 51 runs, 11 home runs, 46 RBI, 13 stolen bases and a .313/.365/.505 slash line. Rua is nothing more than a low-end option in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues, but he has produced when given an opportunity (.865 OPS through 153 plate appearances), so view him as a viable flier in daily contests when in the lineup.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo out Thursday

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 10:17:09 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo has the day off Thursday, June 16, with 2B Rougned Odor hitting leadoff. OF Ryan Rua is in left field and hits sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Odor has hit four homers in the last week, and he's a great start against Daniel Mengden in his second career start. Rua has also done some yardwork the past week sending three out, which doubled his season total of six homers. He, too, is worth consideration in the low end.

Rangers | Ryan Rua homers again

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 22:38:43 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Ryan Rua homered for the second consecutive game Tuesday, June 14, versus the Oakland Athletics. He finished the night 2-for-3 with two runs scored, three RBI, and he also drew a walk. The homer was his sixth of the year.

Fantasy Tip: There could be some value here, as although Shin-Soo Choo recently returned to the lineup, Rua might still get some steady at-bats while playing other areas in the field. For instance, he played first base in this one with Mitch Moreland sitting. Rua now has three home runs in his past five games, and he could be worth monitoring if manager Jeff Banister keeps finding ways to include him in the batting order.

Rangers | Ryan Rua to start at first base

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 15:34:06 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Ryan Rua will start at first base against Oakland Athletics SP Eric Surkamp Tuesday, June 14, and is batting fourth in the lineup. 1B Prince Fielder will serve as the designated hitter and is batting fifth. 1B Mitch Moreland is on the bench against the left-handed pitcher.

Fantasy Tip: Rua is hitting .314 with three home runs and seven RBI in 11 games this month and has four hits in his last four games. He should be used in AL-only leagues as long as he receives solid playing time and should be an attractive option in daily fantasy leagues because of the favorable matchup. Fielder has been improving at the plate and can be a sleeper option in daily fantasy leagues. Owners in standard leagues should continue to stay away from Fielder for now.

Rangers | Nomar Mazara sitting Monday

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 17:12:22 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Nomar Mazara (rest) is not in the lineup Monday, June 13, against Oakland Athletics SP Sean Manaea. OF Shin-Soo Choo is back from the disabled list and starting in right field, batting leadoff, while OF Ryan Rua is in left field and hitting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: It's just a rest day for the Rangers' rookie sensation, and he'll obviously resume his starting duties in the outfield even with Choo back in the fold. Rua is the one who will be the odd man out as a result of Choo's return, but he can still offer some value to daily league players whenever he's inserted into the middle of the lineup.

Rangers | Jared Hoying, Bobby Wilson playing

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 09:40:23 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Ryan Rua and C Bryan Holaday are not in the starting lineup against Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma Sunday, June 5. OF Jared Hoying will play left field and bat eighth, while C Bobby Wilson bats ninth and starts behind the plate.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson is batting .317 with two homers and 12 RBI in 60 at-bats and is worth considering as a value play in DFS contests today. Hoying should be viewed as an inexpensive flier option.

Rangers | Three Texas starters sitting

Sun, 29 May 2016 10:36:39 -0700

Texas Rangers SS Elvis Andrus, OF Jared Hoying and C Bobby Wilson are not in the starting lineup against Pittsburgh Pirates SP Francisco Liriano Sunday, May 29. OF Ryan Rua will start in left field and is batting sixth. C Bryan Holaday will start at catcher and is batting eighth, while 2B Hanser Alberto will start at shortstop and is batting ninth.

Fantasy Tip: Rua is hitting .429 with one home run and three RBI against left-handed pitchers and can be a sleeper option in daily fantasy leagues. Alberto and Holaday have not done much at the plate this season and probably should be avoided in most leagues.
