Rangers | Adrian Beltre climbs homer ladder

Mon, 18 Jul 2016 23:55:46 -0700

Texas Rangers 3B Adrian Beltre hit his 426th career home run, tying him with Detroit Tigers 1B Miguel Cabrera and former Chicago Cubs player Billy Williams for 48th on the all-time list.

Fantasy Tip: Beltre continues wielding a decent bat, which makes him a good play in AL, mixed and daily leagues. He could be a legitimate threat for 500 home runs, depending on how much longer his career lasts.

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 | Adrian Beltre haunts Yankees again

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 20:05:35 -0700

Texas Rangers 3B Adrian Beltre went 3-for-5, including a two-run home run and an RBI single, and scored twice versus the New York Yankees on Tuesday, June 28. Beltre also delivered the tying and go-ahead runs late in the ninth inning of a comeback win in the opener of this four-game series on Monday, June 27.

Fantasy Tip: The homer was his first since June 3 and the 11th of the season. Since returning from a seven-game absence due to a hamstring strain on June 16, Beltre is batting .347 with 11 RBI and 11 runs scored. The power has obviously been a bit lacking for the 37-year-old, but the .285 average and 51 RBI is the kind of production owners want from their fantasy third basemen. He's a solid low-tier starting option at the hot corner and should be trusted as a regular starter in most leagues.

Rangers | Adrian Beltre delivers game-winner

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 23:50:05 -0700

Texas Rangers 3B Adrian Beltre managed only one hit in five at-bats versus the New York Yankees on Monday, June 27, but made it count with a two-run, go-ahead single that sparked a four-run ninth inning.

Fantasy Tip: The clutch base knock also extended his hitting streak to six games, during which he has driven in six runs - including five over his last three contests. Despite his impressive RBI total for the season (48), Beltre has been stuck on 10 home runs since June 3 and has fallen back in the pack among fantasy third basemen. At the moment, most owners should be able to do better than him at the hot corner.

Rangers | Adrian Beltre has three hits in return

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 16:34:11 -0700

Texas Rangers 3B Adrian Beltre (hamstring) went 3-for-5 with a double, run scored and two RBI in his return to the lineup Thursday, June 16, versus the Oakland Athletics.

Fantasy Tip: Beltre must've been telling the truth when he said he could've returned several days ago, though manager Jeff Banister was just understandably being careful with his aging third baseman. The star slugger now owns an acceptable .278/.329/.470 line with 10 home runs and 42 RBI on the season.

Rangers | Adrian Beltre returns

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 10:09:33 -0700

Texas Rangers 3B Adrian Beltre (hamstring) returned to the lineup Thursday, June 16, and 2B Jurickson Profar is sitting out. Beltre is hitting cleanup.

Fantasy Tip: It's his first game in a week after a hamstring pull. Beltre had a slow start to June with a .250-1-5 line in 28 at-bats. The matchup isn't too bad against Daniel Mengden in his second career start. Beltre is an upper-middle option in DFS.

Rangers | Adrian Beltre remains sidelined

Tue, 14 Jun 2016 15:23:22 -0700

Texas Rangers 3B Adrian Beltre (hamstring) is not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Eric Surkamp Tuesday, June 14. 2B Jurickson Profar will start at third base and is batting sixth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Beltre is not expected to play until later in the week, so owners should keep an eye on the situation. Profar has posted terrific numbers since rejoining the team a few weeks ago and should be a starting option in all leagues.

Rangers | Adrian Beltre out until Thursday

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 17:05:41 -0700

Texas Rangers 3B Adrian Beltre (hamstring) is being rested until Thursday, June 16, due to his left hamstring issue, according to manager Jeff Banister. Beltre also told Banister he could play if needed.

Fantasy Tip: This puts weekly league owners in a difficult situation, as Beltre is automatically out for at least half the week. Still, there's at least some encouraging news in here as well, with the 37-year-old declaring he'd be fine if he were in the lineup Monday night. Given his injury history and age, though, Banister is playing it safe. Luckily, this should ensure Beltre is back to full health in just a few days. Jurickson Profar will probably handle third base in the meantime.

Rangers | Adrian Beltre out again Saturday

Sat, 11 Jun 2016 15:33:32 -0700

Texas Rangers 3B Adrian Beltre (hamstring) is out Saturday, June 11, with 3B Jurickson Profar leading off.

Fantasy Tip: It's the third straight game Beltre has missed. If he misses many more, the disabled list becomes a distinct possibility. Profar is hitting .429 this month is a high-end option against James Paxton.

Rangers | Adrian Beltre unlikely to face Seattle

Fri, 10 Jun 2016 17:19:06 -0700

Texas Rangers 3B Adrian Beltre (hamstring) is not expected to play in this weekend's series versus the Seattle Mariners but it is uncertain if he will be placed on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: The 37-year-old Beltre is batting .271 with 10 home runs and 40 RBI through 59 games this year and should be reinserted into fantasy lineups as soon as he is healthy enough to return. In the meantime, INF Jurickson Profar is likely to see most of the action at the hot corner and he should be viewed as a viable fantasy option in all formats.
