Rangers | Delino DeShields sitting vs. Angels

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 13:36:23 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. is not in the starting lineup Friday, April 29. OF Ryan Rua draws into the lineup and is batting eighth, and 2B Rougned Odor is leading off against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago Friday.

Fantasy Tip: DeShields owns a .219/.305/.301 slash line to start the season, and he has been hitting ninth more than first of late. His fantasy value is dwindling. Odor receives a modest fantasy boost in the run and stolen base columns setting the table for the Rangers, but it hurts his RBI potential. Rua is a potential flier in daily contests because of his .292/.320/.458 career slash line against southpaws, but you'll still want to keep expectations in check.

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.

Rangers | Delino DeShields out of the lineup

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 10:11:20 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. is not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Mat Latos Sunday, April 24. SS Ian Desmond will start in center field, while OF Ryan Rua will start in left field and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Rua has seven hits in his last six games played but has only one RBI on the season. Rua could be a cheap sleeper option in daily fantasy leagues but does not have a lot of fantasy value.

Rangers | Nomar Mazara not in lineup

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 14:21:06 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Nomar Mazara is not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox left-handed SP Jose Quintana Friday, April 22. OF Ryan Rua is starting in right field and is batting seventh, while SS Elvis Andrus moves up to the two-hole.

Fantasy Tip: Rua is a low-end deep outfield sleeper in daily contests tonight. Tonight would be the night to take a chance on Andrus, though, with the move up the lineup before Texas' big bats.

Rangers | Rougned Odor, Mitch Moreland out

Thu, 21 Apr 2016 12:40:57 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Rougned Odor and 1B Mitch Moreland are not in the starting lineup against Houston Astros left-handed SP Dallas Keuchel Thursday, April 21. 2B Hanser Alberto is starting at second base and hitting ninth, while OF Ryan Rua starts at first base and is batting seventh.

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

Rangers | Ian Desmond takes a seat

Sat, 16 Apr 2016 15:39:41 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Ian Desmond is out of the lineup Saturday, April 16, with OF Ryan Rua hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Rua isn't the sexiest of low-end flyers, but he is 6-for-16 (.375) to begin the season. He could be worth a look against Yovani Gallardo.

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 | Delino DeShields takes a seat

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 14:28:21 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. is not in the starting lineup Monday, April 11. SS Ian Desmond moves to center field and OF Ryan Rua is starting in left field and is hitting eighth against Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma.

Fantasy Tip: Rua hit just .193 with four home runs and seven RBI in 28 games for the Rangers last year and isn't worth considering in daily formats Monday night.

Sat, 09 Apr 2016 17:49:36 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo (calf) will not play against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Saturday, April 9, because of a strained right calf. OF Ryan Rua will replace Choo and bat eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Rua had a strong spring, and he could be worth a look as a sleeper in daily formats.
