Rangers | Josh Hamilton not in lineup

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 12:27:01 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton is not in the starting lineup against Baltimore Orioles left-handed SP Wei-Yin Chen Wednesday, July 1. OF Ryan Rua is starting in left field and hitting sixth.

Fantasy Tip: Rua ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) is hitting under .200 (.182) on the season with just a home run and RBI, and he's been even worse against lefties in limited at-bats (.158-1-1). Avoid him on FantasyScore.

Rangers | Joey Gallo sent to minors

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 12:42:48 -0700

Texas Rangers 3B Joey Gallo was optioned to Class AAA Round Rock on Tuesday, June 30, to make room for OF Josh Hamilton (hamstring).

Fantasy Tip: This isn't as big a surprise as you might think, as Gallo ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) cooled off after a hot start. Gallo had five homers and a .218 average. If you can stash Gallo on your bench in keeper leagues do it, as he will be back. Otherwise, drop him from FantasyScore consideration.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) may need a game or two before he is back to 100 percent, so be wary about using him on FantasyScore for now.

Rangers | Josh Hamilton shortens stride

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 16:10:08 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton (hamstring) worked to shorten up his running stride in order to manage the soreness in his left hamstring. He acknowledged that he's still not 100% but said that he is ready to play center field and is expected to come off the disabled list Tuesday, June 30. Hamilton went 4-for-12 on a four-game rehab assignment and played the last two games in center field. He has a .345 career average with 11 home runs in 110 at-bats in Baltimore, where the team is playing this week.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) should be owned in all fantasy leagues, and he should contribute valuable stats if he can stay healthy and in the lineup. His return might spell a trip back to the minors for Joey Gallo ($4,600, 9.2% of cap), who would probably benefit from some more seasoning.

Rangers | Josh Hamilton not quite ready

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 13:27:36 -0700

Updating a previous report, Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton (hamstring) acknowledged while he is not 100%, he is ready to play center field Monday, June 29. He is expected to be activated from the disabled list Tuesday, June 30. "I was hoping to play today, but we decided to give me a day to recover after the travel and the workout," Hamilton added Monday.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) projects to return to the heart of the Rangers' batting order. He is worth owning in all fantasy leagues, and at his current cap hit, FantasyScore players shouldn't be afraid to take a flier on Hamilton when he faces a favorable pitcher.

Rangers | Josh Hamilton plays in rehab game

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 15:13:27 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton (hamstring) went 1-for-3 as the designated hitter for Class AA Frisco Wednesday, June 24, with a double and a walk. He'll move to Class AAA Round Rock Thursday, June 25, and play through the weekend. The next step will be playing the outfield to see how his body responds.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) could return as early as Monday from the DL, and he'll likely be eased back into a starting role. Take a wait-and-see approach with him on FantasyScore, but if his price remains that low, he'll be attractive against right-handed pitchers. Joey Gallo might be in danger of going back to the minors when Hamilton is back.

Rangers | Josh Hamilton starting rehab assignment

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 16:51:04 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton (hamstring) will start a rehab assignment with Class AA Frisco Wednesday, June 24, in hopes of returning to the Rangers Monday, June 29, against the Baltimore Orioles. Hamilton hasn't played since May 30. "I feel good," Hamilton said. "Me personally would probably already like to be back tomorrow but we're going to Toronto playing on the turf so they slowed me down, which is smart and probably a blessing in disguise." He's been taking batting practice for a week and doing other exercises to test his hamstring.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) will likely be eased back into a starting role in left field when he returns from the DL, which means Joey Gallo ($5,300, 10.6% of cap) could be looking at a return to the minors within the week. Consider easing Hamilton back into your traditional and daily lineups when he's back, as well.
