Rangers | Yu Darvish punches out 11

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 20:53:50 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish allowed three runs, two earned, on seven hits while walking one and striking out 11 over six innings in a loss to the Kansas City Royals Friday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: Darvish has wasted little time regaining his form, punching out 39 in 26 innings over five starts, and he is rewarding fantasy owners who stashed him during the early months. With 20 strikeouts in his last two starts alone, it is also time to start considering him in DFS formats.

Rangers | Texas interested in Jose Quintana?

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 17:58:52 -0700

The Texas Rangers appear to be interested in trading for Chicago White Sox SP Jose Quintana.

Fantasy Tip: Quintana is 8-8 with a 3.13 ERA through 19 starts this season, with 31 walks and 112 strikeouts through 123 2/3 innings. A potential move to the Rangers would do wonders for his fantasy value, providing him with the run support he has often lacked throughout his career. However, the ChiSox may be hesitant to deal him away if they still feel they are in contention for a playoff berth.

Rangers | Delino DeShields leading off

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 16:05:37 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. is starting in left field and is hitting leadoff against Kansas City Royals SP Danny Duffy Friday, July 22. 1B Mitch Moreland is on the bench against a lefty, and 2B Jurickson Profar is serving as the designated hitter and batting second.

Fantasy Tip: DeShields was demoted earlier this year after he disappointed with a .217/.294/.302 line in 106 at-bats. He'll likely see limited playing time as outfield depth with Shin-Soo Choo on the DL, but he can be attractive those in AL-only leagues for his speed. Profar should see regular playing time now between first base, DH and the outfield, and his overall .304/.351/.435 line should play in all leagues. His multiposition eligibility also makes him more attractive.

Rangers | Texas pushing hard for Chris Sale

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 15:11:53 -0700

Chicago White SP Chris Sale is a serious trade target of the Texas Rangers. However, the White Sox are demanding 3B/OF Joey Gallo and/or 2B Jurickson Profar in any deal.

Fantasy Tip: Profar and Gallo are coveted assets, but Texas is also loaded with plenty of young talent. This could be a fit. The fantasy impact for Sale relocating to Texas would be negligible, but full-time at-bats for Profar and/or Gallo would be a huge fantasy boost.

Rangers | Prince Fielder's exam pushed back

Fri, 22 Jul 2016 10:19:47 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Prince Fielder's (neck) exam has been moved to Monday, July 25, instead of taking place Friday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: Fielder's scheduled for a doctor's visit that will determine whether or not he needs season-ending surgery. At this point, it's looking like the declining first baseman won't be a factor for the remainder of the campaign. If he's indeed out for the season, Mitch Moreland and Jurickson Profar will benefit the most.

Rangers | Ian Desmond hits 18th homer

Thu, 21 Jul 2016 00:34:08 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Ian Desmond hit his 18th home run of the season Wednesday, July 20, in a 7-4 loss to the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Fantasy Tip: Desmond has not been doing bad at all for someone who merited just a one-year contract. Chances are that next deal will be multiple years, but who knows? For the time being, make sure he's in your starting lineup.

Rangers | Martin Perez tattooed by Halos

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 22:32:47 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez was pounded for seven earned runs, 10 hits and three walks with two strikeouts over six innings in a loss Wednesday, July 20, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Fantasy Tip: Perez has been terrible over his past three starts, as his ERA has risen from 3.39 to 4.37 just since July 1. Perez should be reserved in most fantasy formats until he can get back on track.

Rangers | Ian Desmond continues to produce

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 22:32:22 -0700

Texas Rangers SS-OF Ian Desmond went 3-for-5 with a double, solo home run and two runs scored Wednesday, July 20, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim as he pushed his batting average to .319.

Fantasy Tip: Desmond is an impending free-agent at season's end, and he continues to post big numbers as he vies for a big payday this offseason. Fantasy owners across all formats are enjoying the ride.

Rangers | Jurickson Profar, Ryan Rua starting

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 16:07:18 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar is starting at second base and is hitting leadoff against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago Wednesday, July 20, while OF Ryan Rua sees a start in left field and is batting cleanup. 2B Rougned Odor is serving as the designated hitter and is batting fifth.

Fantasy Tip: Both Profar and Rua should see more opportunities for playing time with Shin-Soo Choo (back) and Prince Fielder (neck) on the DL. Profar is the more attractive fantasy asset in all formats with his .316/.364/.451 line and multiposition eligibility, but Rua can be employed when facing left-handers in deep mixed, AL-only and daily games.

Rangers | Jurickson Profar to see more playing time

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 15:49:07 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Jurickson Profar and OF Ryan Rua will see more opportunities at first base with 1B Prince Fielder (neck) on the disabled list. 2B Hanser Alberto will be used as a middle infield backup. 3B/OF Joey Gallo was not called up from the minor leagues.

Fantasy Tip: Between first base and outfield with Shin-Soo Choo (back) also on the DL, Profar will likely be an everyday player for the foreseeable future. Profar's .316/.364/.451 slash line with four homers and 14 RBI in 133 at-bats demand attention in all fantasy leagues now. Gallo remains one of the most intriguing prospects yet to make an impact at the big league level this year. His elite power make him stash-worthy in keeper and AL-only leagues, and he could be a trade chip this summer.

Rangers | Prince Fielder has herniated disc

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 15:41:21 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Prince Fielder (neck) is dealing with a herniated disc and will visit with Dr. Drew Dossett Friday, July 22. Fielder could need season-ending surgery. He's been placed on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: There's a good chance we won't see him again for the rest of the year depending on the results of his doctor visit Friday. The disc herniation likely explains Fielder's disappointing .212/.292/.334 slash line with dwindling power (eight homers). He shouldn't have been carried in shallow mixed leagues and can likely be jettisoned in deep mixed leagues now, as well. Mitch Moreland and Jurickson Profar are likely to split time at first base, and Profar should be playing every day now with Shin-Soo Choo also on the DL.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo back to DL

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 15:38:12 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo (back) was placed on the disabled list with lower back inflammation Wednesday, July 20. He received an injection Wednesday and could be back in 15 days. OF Delino DeShields Jr. and 2B Hanser Alberto were recalled from the minors in corresponding moves.

Fantasy Tip: Choo has hit well (.260-7-17) when he's been on the field this year, but the problem is he can't stay out of the trainer's room and has only played 33 games in 2016. If you're out of roster space in mixed leagues, cutting Choo would be advised. DeShields and Alberto are deep AL-only options only, as they'll likely be used as depth. Jurickson Profar, who has played excellent in limited duty, should now become an everyday player and should be owned universally.

Rangers | Ian Desmond homers, steals base

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 22:45:43 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Ian Desmond was 3-for-4 with a home run and a stolen base against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim on Tuesday, July 19.

Fantasy Tip: Those were Desmond's 17th home run and 16th stolen base this season. He's one of just four players (Melvin Upton Jr, Mike Trout, Wil Myers) to have more than 15 home runs and 15 steals on the season, and he remains a must-start performer.

Rangers | Robinson Chirinos goes deep twice

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 22:37:32 -0700

Texas Rangers C Robinson Chirinos was 2-for-4 with two home runs and three RBI against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim on Tuesday, July 19.

Fantasy Tip: Chirinos now has eight home runs in 83 at-bats this season. He clearly doesn't play enough to have much seasonal value, but when Chirinos is in the lineup he has the chance to pay dividends as a low-price dice roll in DFS.

Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo back in lineup

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 16:47:44 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo (back) is back in the starting lineup as the designated hitter and is batting leadoff against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Tim Lincecum Tuesday, July 19. 1B Prince Fielder remains out of the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Choo has had his fair share of trouble staying on the field this year (just 32 games), but he's produced when he's played with a .271 average, seven home runs and 17 RBI and is a good table-setter for a potent lineup. Return him to all fantasy lineups in a juicy matchup. Fielder's power and playing time have diminished, making him a corner infield backup in deep mixed and AL-only universes.
