Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo improving

Thu, 24 Apr 2014 13:08:22 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo (ankle) is reporting improvement in his sprained left ankle, and the team is hoping he'll avoid the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Choo remains day-to-day, but if he's unable to play by this weekend, expect the Rangers to seriously consider putting him on the DL. Keep Choo on your bench until further notice.

Rangers | Neftali Feliz has no structural damage

Thu, 24 Apr 2014 13:04:43 -0700

Texas Rangers RP Neftali Feliz (elbow) was diagnosed with general soreness in his right elbow after being examined by Dr. Keith Meister Thursday, April 24, and he doesn't have any structural damage to his ligaments or tendons. Feliz will be placed on the minor league disabled list, though, and will likely resume throwing later this week.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Feliz will avoid his second Tommy John surgery, for now, but his return to the majors will be delayed by this setback.

Rangers | Kevin Kouzmanoff to be examined

Thu, 24 Apr 2014 12:24:19 -0700

Texas Rangers 3B Kevin Kouzmanoff (back) is flying back to Texas to be examined by Dr. Drew Dosset. Kouzmanoff hasn't improved and has a history of back problems.

Fantasy Tip: Donnie Murphy is taking over at the hot corner with Kouz sidelined. He's worth a look in the short term in AL-only leagues until Adrian Beltre (hamstring) returns.

Wed, 23 Apr 2014 15:43:20 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Kouz's injury doesn't seem to be very serious, so he should be back any day now.

Rangers | Martin Perez with nice encore performance

Wed, 23 Apr 2014 15:38:22 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez allowed just three hits in a shutout effort against the Oakland Athletics Wednesday, April 23, after coming off his first career shutout and complete game in his last outing. Perez struck out three and walked two in 108 pitches and didn't allow a hit until the fourth inning. He hasn't allowed an earned run in 26 consecutive innings.

Rangers | Pitchers thriving with Robinson Chirinos

Wed, 23 Apr 2014 14:07:51 -0700

Texas Rangers pitchers enter action Wednesday, April 23, carrying a 2.36 ERA in games started by C Robinson Chirinos.

Fantasy Tip: Chirinos had some prospect hype years ago and, if he can score more playing time over J.P. Arencibia, he could scrape a bit of offensive upside with Arlington as his home park.

Rangers | Neftali Feliz dealing with fatigue

Wed, 23 Apr 2014 11:47:36 -0700

Texas Rangers RP Neftali Feliz has left Triple-A Round Rock due to general soreness and fatigue. However, he's not dealing with a significant physical injury.

Fantasy Tip: Feliz's road back from Tommy John surgery has proved more trying than most expected. A return to the Rangers doesn't seem to be anywhere close for their former closer.

Rangers | Matt Harrison to return Sunday

Wed, 23 Apr 2014 10:42:42 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Matt Harrison (back) will come off the disabled list to make his season debut against the Seattle Mariners Sunday, April 27, according to manager Ron Washington. Harrison last pitched on April 6 of last season. He pitched eight shutout innings on 86 pitches for Double-A Frisco Sunday, April 20.

Fantasy Tip: Harrison's poor health in recent seasons makes him a risky pitching commodity. Don't expect an immediate return to his 2012 numbers now that he's healthy. Watch him in mixed leagues, for now, and take the leap in single-universe leagues if you're desperate.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo avoids DL for now

Tue, 22 Apr 2014 20:56:13 -0700

Updating a previous report, Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo (ankle) is not headed for the 15-day disabled list for now due to his high ankle sprain. However, he will not play again during the series in Oakland, and will be re-evaluated in Seattle before the series against the Mariners which starts Friday, April 25.

Rangers | Robinson Chirinos set to start entire series

Tue, 22 Apr 2014 18:04:13 -0700

Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington will use C Robinson Chirinos for all three games behind the plate this week against the Oakland Athletics, with C J.P. Arencibia starting none. Chirinos started Monday, April 21, is starting Tuesday, April 22, and is likely for Wednesday, April 23. Washington wants to pair Chirinos with SP Martin Perez, as the two are friends and former teammates in Venezuela. Perez is scheduled to start Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Chirinos is worth using as a No. 2 catcher in AL-only fantasy leagues and some deeper mixed formats, while Arencibia is only worth keeping rostered in the deepest of AL play.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo could land on DL

Tue, 22 Apr 2014 16:03:18 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo (ankle) is not in the starting lineup, as expected, Tuesday, April 22. He's dealing with a sprained left ankle and could land on the disabled list. Choo said he still has pain in his ankle.

Fantasy Tip: Michael Choice, the only other outfielder on the team's 40-man roster, is starting in place of Choo. Choice would become a popular addition in AL leagues if Choo lands on the DL. Stay tuned.
