Rangers | Cole Hamels on track for Monday

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 10:09:46 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels (groin) could be ready to return for a start against the Seattle Mariners Monday, Aug. 17. He will test his sore left groin during a bullpen session Saturday, Aug. 15. SP Chi Chi Gonzalez is starting in place of Hamels Thursday, Aug. 13, and he has a chance to stick in the rotation after SP Nick Martinez was optioned to the minors.

Fantasy Tip: You may be hesitant to use Hamels ($8,600, 17.2% of cap) on FantasyScore coming off an injury and two poor outings in his first two starts with his new team. The matchup against Seattle isn't a bad one, though, and Hamels should turn things around with Texas to finish out the year.

Rangers | Nick Martinez has happy birthday

Thu, 06 Aug 2015 04:54:37 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Nick Martinez picked up the win on his 25th birthday as he allowed one run and one hit in five innings Wednesday, Aug. 5. The Rangers beat the Houston Astros, 4-3, to complete a three-game sweep.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) hit a rough patch in the middle of the season but appears to have adjusted nicely. Houston's lineup is among the toughest in baseball, so Martinez raised his game a notch with this performance. Keep an eye on his matchups but note that he is getting better.

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 22:47:09 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Nick Martinez is scheduled to start Wednesday, Aug. 5, on his 25th birthday against the Houston Astros. He is 2-1 with a 1.80 ERA in five career starts against the Astros.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez ($4,800) posted a quality start last time out against San Francisco, but he needs to pitch with more consistency before he can be trusted in FantasyScore.

Rangers | Nick Martinez's hot start is long gone

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 18:32:07 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Martinez ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) capped off his slide by allowed seven earned runs in just three innings Monday, July 20. FantasyScore owners need to look elsewhere whenever Martinez is on the mound.

Texas Rangers SP Nick Martinez was recalled from Class AAA Round Rock Monday, July 20, and will be the starting pitcher Monday. The team also optioned SP Anthony Ranaudo to Class AAA Round Rock.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez returns to the team after a few weeks in the minor leagues and could receive a few starts. Owners may want to see Martinez pitch in a game or two before considering him an option in their lineups.

Rangers | Wandy Rodriguez drawing interest

Thu, 16 Jul 2015 16:50:34 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Wandy Rodriguez is drawing interest from teams as the trade deadline nears. Interested teams view Rodriguez as a fallback option if they aren't able to land a big-name starting pitcher. SPs Nick Martinez or Chi Chi Gonzalez could move back into the rotation if Rodriguez is dealt away.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has been a nice surprise for Texas (6-4, 4.07 ERA, 1.45 WHIP), but he's still only a fantasy commodity in very deep mixed and AL-only leagues. However, a trade out of Texas to a more pitcher-friendly home park could make him more attractive.

Rangers | Nick Martinez sent down

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 12:31:00 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Nick Martinez was optioned to Class AAA Round Rock Thursday, July 2.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez ($6,800, 13.6% of cap) had allowed 23 earned runs in 35 innings over six starts since June 3 after a nice start in the Texas rotation. It's unknown who will replace Martinez in the rotation. Stay tuned. With Matt Harrison and Derek Holland both nearing returns, though, Martinez may not get another chance.

Rangers | Nick Martinez masters Athletics

Wed, 10 Jun 2015 05:06:16 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Nick Martinez won for the fifth time in his last seven decisions as he struck out three and walked three batters in a 2-1 win over the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday, June 9.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez ($7,000, 14.0% of cap) has had a few issues lately, but this was his first win since May 23 and it has been a very good season overall for the Rangers pitcher. Continue playing Martinez in all formats, as Texas has turned the corner in the AL West and he should benefit from it.

Rangers | Nick Martinez sees streak end

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 21:53:50 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Nick Martinez was trampled for seven runs, nine hits and two walks over 3 1/3 innings in a loss Wednesday, June 3, against the Chicago White Sox. He saw his streak of having allowed no more than three earned runs in a game end at 16 games.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez was at least able to salvage the line somewhat with five strikeouts in his shortest stint of the season. However, consider him a risky FantasyScore pick at $7,000 (or 14.0% of cap) heading into his next outing.

Rangers | Nick Martinez solid again

Sat, 23 May 2015 20:10:29 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Nick Martinez improved to 4-0 on the year, allowing two runs on five hits and striking out five in seven innings in a 15-4 win over the New York Yankees Saturday, May 23, and he has allowed three earned runs or less in 15 straight starts dating back to last season.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez ($6,100, 12.2% of cap) currently ranks third in the American League with a 1.96 ERA, and while he isn't an elite option at FantasyScore because of his low strikeout totals, he has been one of the safer starters.
