Rangers | Alex Rios acquired

Fri, 09 Aug 2013 11:24:37 -0700

The Texas Rangers acquired OF Alex Rios from the Chicago White Sox Friday, Aug. 9. The White Sox will also send $1 million to the Rangers for Rios' salary. The White Sox will receive a player to be named or cash considerations. The Rangers are expected to send SS Leury Garcia to Chicago. With Rios gone, OF Avisail Garcia could come up and see playing time in the majors. Garcia had 10 hits in 24 at-bats (.417) with a home run and nine RBIs with Triple-A Charlotte.

Fantasy Tip: Texas was desperately seeking outfield help with Nelson Cruz suspended for the rest of the season. David Murphy and Craig Gentry are expected to platoon in left field from here on out.

Blake Tekotte was called up today, but if Garcia is brought up also, the latter should see most of the playing time for the rest of the year. Add Garcia immediately in AL-only leagues, for now.

Rangers | Ian Kinsler activated from disabled list

Sat, 15 Jun 2013 11:00:36 -0700

The Texas Rangers have activated 2B Ian Kinsler (rib cage) from the 15-day disabled list. He is in the starting lineup Saturday, June 15, against the Toronto Blue Jays. In a corresponding move, INF Leury Garcia has been optioned to Triple-A Round Rock.

Fantasy Tip: This move means that INF Jurickson Profar will remain on the parent club's 25-man roster in a reserve role, with Kinsler reclaiming his job as the Rangers' regular second baseman.

Rangers | Jurickson Profar stay depends on Ian Kinsler

Wed, 29 May 2013 10:22:08 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar will head back to Class AAA Round Rock when Ian Kinsler (intercostal) returns from the disabled list, according to manager Ron Washington.

Fantasy Tip: This has been the hinted plan since Profar came up, and he's already splitting time at the keystone with Leury Garcia. Of course, Kinsler has been a slow healer over his career and seemingly hasn't been doing much work, so you could squeeze another few weeks out of Profar. He's worth holding in deep leagues even after a demotion anyway.

Rangers | Jurickson Profar to split time at 2B

Mon, 20 May 2013 13:16:57 -0700

Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington said INFs Jurickson Profar and Leury Garcia will split time at second base with 2B Ian Kinsler (intercostal) on the disabled list. Garcia started at second Sunday, May 19. Profar hit two home runs with Triple-A Round Rock Saturday, May 18, to extend his hitting streak to eight games. He had 14 hits in his last 33 at-bats with six runs, two doubles, three home runs and eight RBIs. Profar is likely to go back to the minors when Kinsler returns, because the team wants him playing every day. Manager Ron Washington said Kinsler could be out only five to six days.

Fantasy Tip: Profar should be owned in all leagues, even if his stay in the majors is short-lived this time around. Kinsler is known to be a slower healer, though, so that could buy Profar a little more time.
