Rangers | Mitch Moreland being rested

Fri, 18 Apr 2014 14:32:30 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland is receiving a day off Friday, April 18, and will sit against a tough left-hander Saturday, April 19. "His at-bats have been excellent," manager Ron Washington said of Moreland, who reached base four times over the Rangers' previous two games. I've been putting off getting Adduci in there and I need to do it."

Rangers | Tanner Scheppers to DL

Fri, 18 Apr 2014 12:59:36 -0700

The Texas Rangers are putting SP Tanner Scheppers (elbow, forearm) on the 15-day disabled list with inflammation in his right elbow and forearm Friday, April 18, and recalled P Aaron Poreda from Triple-A Round Rock in a corresponding move. Also, INF Andy Parrino was designated for assignment. Scheppers will not throw for 10 days. SP Nick Martinez is likely to start against the Oakland Athletics Tuesday, April 22.

Fantasy Tip: Martinez has an average fastball and relies on control instead of overpowering hitters. He has improved his secondary offerings, as well. Nothing flashy here, but he could be a nice pickup in AL-only leagues.

Rangers | Have interest in Joel Hanrahan

Fri, 18 Apr 2014 12:21:16 -0700

The Texas Rangers are in the mix to sign free-agent RP Joel Hanrahan (Red Sox). Hanrahan is a native of Lewisville, Texas, which is a suburb of Dallas. As many as 20 teams have scouted Hanrahan. The Boston Red Sox, New York Yankees, New York Mets, Colorado Rockies, Kansas City Royals and Cleveland Indians are also believed to be interested, and the Minnesota Twins, Detroit Tigers, Toronto Blue Jays and Tampa Bay Rays were reported to be in attendance at his throwing session Thursday, April 17.

Fantasy Tip: The Rangers could use some help in their bullpen with Neftali Feliz in the minors and Tanner Scheppers in the starting rotation. If he signs with Texas, he wouldn't be handed the closer's role but would have a shot if Soria didn't work out.

Rangers | Kevin Kouzmanoff continues to deliver

Thu, 17 Apr 2014 15:23:36 -0700

Texas Rangers 3B Kevin Kouzmanoff doubled twice and scored two runs in the team victory Thursday, April 17, and he's hitting .414 since being recalled from the minors April 9. He has hit in all eight games in which he has played this year.

Fantasy Tip: Kouzmanoff has resurfaced out of nowhere. He's not dead just yet, fantasy baseball players. In the short term with Adrian Beltre (quadriceps) on the DL, you might as well ride the hot streak in cavernous mixed and AL-only setups.

Rangers | Tanner Scheppers expected to stay in rotation

Thu, 17 Apr 2014 15:18:43 -0700

Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington said the plan for now is to keep SP Tanner Scheppers in the starting rotation, despite another rough outing against the Seattle Mariners Thursday, April 17. One inning has cost him in three of his four starts this season, and 17 of the 20 runs he's allowed have come in three innings. SP Nick Martinez is a candidate to enter the rotation if the team makes a change. SPs Nick Tepesch and Scott Baker are other options in the minors.

Fantasy Tip: The experiment with Scheppers as a starter could soon be coming to an end. His outing next week will likely determine his fate. There are better options out there on the waiver wire in mixed leagues right now.

Rangers | Neal Cotts fine

Thu, 17 Apr 2014 11:27:25 -0700

Texas Rangers RP Neal Cotts is not physically injured, but manager Ron Washington elected not to use him in a close game Wednesday, April 16, because Washington said the team has been "riding" Cotts hard recently, and they wanted to give him a breather.

Rangers | Derek Holland making progress

Thu, 17 Apr 2014 10:19:12 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland (knee) continues to make progress and is ahead of schedule in his rehab. However, he has yet to work on his lateral movement at all but continues to build arm strength with bullpen sessions.

Fantasy Tip: Holland won't be a realistic option for your fantasy squad until later this summer.

Rangers | No timetable for Geovany Soto

Thu, 17 Apr 2014 10:12:01 -0700

Texas Rangers C Geovany Soto (knee) was wearing a brace on his right knee Wednesday, April 16, and he expects to have the brace on until mid-May. He's unlikely to return to the team until July, and general manager Jon Daniels said there isn't a firm timetable for Soto's return.

Rangers | Matt Harrison being pushed back

Thu, 17 Apr 2014 09:32:25 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Matt Harrison (back) will have his return to the team pushed back thanks to weather delays and weather-related sub-par performance in minor league rehab outings. The team will have Harrison make at least one more rehab start after his next outing Saturday, April 19, with Double-A Frisco. General manager Jon Daniels said Harrison could pitch on both April 24 and April 29 in the minors. He's expected to go six innings or roughly 95 pitches in his next appearance.

Fantasy Tip: We won't see Harrison back in the majors until sometime in May. Back and neck issues have derailed Harrison over the last year-plus, making him more of an unknown commodity when he returns. Keep him on a watch list in deep mixed leagues if he shows signs of his old self upon his return.

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 15:37:24 -0700
