Rangers | A.J. Griffin to start Saturday

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 22:42:54 -0700

Texas Rangers SP A.J. Griffin (shoulder) is set to be activated from the 15-day DL and start against the Boston Red Sox on Saturday, June 25.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin pitched well prior to hitting the disabled list with shoulder stiffness, but he couldn't have picked a tougher opponent to return against. Griffin has clear AL-only and some deeper mixed value, but it might be prudent to keep him in reserve for his first start back.

Rangers | Matt Bush blows save

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 22:27:26 -0700

Texas Rangers RP Matt Bush allowed two runs on two hits and a walk in 1/3 of an inning against the Boston Red Sox on Friday, June 24.

Fantasy Tip: Bush, who'd allowed no runs and just one hit in the entire month of June entering play on Friday, served up a game-tying home run to Mookie Betts and then couldn't keep the Red Sox from taking the lead. It's a disappointing performance from Bush, who got the call after Jake Diekman struggled (and with Sam Dyson resting), but he'll remain one of Texas' key setup men.

Rangers | Sam Dyson given night off

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 22:25:40 -0700

Texas Rangers RP Sam Dyson was held out of action by manager Jeff Banister on Friday, June 24, to give the closer some extra rest following a day off. The Rangers blew a three-run lead in the ninth and lost, 8-7.

Fantasy Tip: On one hand it makes sense -- Dyson's 39 appearances are tied for the most in baseball -- but Jake Diekman and Matt Bush couldn't finish the job, ending Texas' 24-game winning streak when leading by multiple runs at any point in a game. Still, in the long run this probably strengthens Dyson's hold on the job.

Rangers | Robinson Chirinos receiving day off

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 15:16:30 -0700

Texas Rangers C Robinson Chirinos is not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP David Price Friday, June 24. C Bobby Wilson will start at catcher and is batting ninth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Wilson is hitting only .143 with two RBI over the last seven days and is not a great option for most fantasy owners.

Rangers | Nomar Mazara not in the lineup

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 15:15:21 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Nomar Mazara is not in the starting lineup against Boston Red Sox SP David Price Friday, June 24. OF Ryan Rua will start in left field and is batting fourth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Rua has gone hitless in his last six at-bats but does have a .295 batting average in June. He will have a tough matchup Friday but should be an attractive option in daily fantasy leagues because he hits .396 against left-handed pitchers.

Rangers | Sam Dyson collects 15th save

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 21:45:50 -0700

Texas Rangers RP Sam Dyson pitched a scoreless ninth inning against the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday, June 22, to register his 15th save of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Since "officially" ascending to the closer's role on May 18, Dyson has gone a perfect 12-for-12 in save opportunities while allowing four runs in 18 1/3 innings, good for a 1.96 ERA to go with a 0.82 WHIP. As nasty as Matt Bush and Jake Diekman have been in setup roles, Dyson has been lights out in the ninth. He has an MLB-best nine saves in June and shows no signs of slowing down.

Rangers | Matt Bush dominating in June

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 21:33:31 -0700

Texas Rangers RP Matt Bush worked a scoreless seventh inning against the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday, June 22. He did not allow a hit and was credited with his ninth hold of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Bush has made nine appearances in June, covering 7 2/3 innings, during which he has allowed ONE hit and no runs while striking out 10. He also has six holds and a win in that time as the Rangers continue to use him in high-leverage situations. Bush isn't working enough to hold value in standard leagues, but he could be of use in AL-only formats and those that count holds.

Rangers | Cole Hamels wins third straight

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 21:22:13 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Cole Hamels allowed just one run on five hits over six innings against the Cincinnati Reds on Wednesday, June 22. He walked two and struck out eight.

Fantasy Tip: In five June starts, this is Hamels' line: 34 2/3 IP, 22 H, 7 ER, 14 BB, 28 K's. That's good for a 3-0 record, 1.82 ERA and 1.04 WHIP. He has been extremely consistent, and at 8-1 with 95 K's in 96 2/3 innings for the season, Hamels is a must-start in all leagues.

Rangers | Yu Darvish could throw this weekend

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 17:55:56 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish (shoulder) could throw a bullpen session this weekend but is unlikely to throw a simulated game or pitch in a rehab game for at least another week, according to pitching coach Doug Brocail.

Fantasy Tip: Darvish should continue to be stashed in all fantasy formats even though no official timetable has been established for his return. Expect the club to err on the side of caution when it comes to his rehab, especially since he's not too far removed from Tommy John surgery.

Rangers | Colby Lewis out up to two months

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 17:23:50 -0700

Updating a previous report, Texas Rangers SP Colby Lewis (lat) will miss up to two months with a strained lat muscle. There has been no word yet on who will replace him in the starting rotation.

Fantasy Tip: Ouch, crucial blow for the Rangers, as the veteran Lewis has simply been fantastic this season. He left his start early on Tuesday night due to cramping in his right triceps, and the injury has turned out to be more serious than initially thought. Owners might want to look at A.J. Griffin (shoulder), as he's set to return from injury soon and will undoubtedly go back into the rotation with the Rangers' handful of injuries at the moment. Griffin was very solid this year before landing on the disabled list in the first half of May.

Rangers | Colby Lewis doubtful for next start

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 16:16:39 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Colby Lewis (triceps) is doubtful for his next start, according to manager Jeff Banister. He had an MRI Wednesday, June 22, and the results are pending.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis has been one of the surprise stories of the 2016 season, being 6-1 with a shiny 3.21 ERA and a shockingly good 1.02 WHIP. However, he had to leave his last start early due to cramping in his right triceps, so it looks like this will cost him at least one start, if not more. More information should be available Thursday concerning Lewis' upcoming assignment.

Rangers | Ian Desmond, Jurickson Profar out

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 14:58:36 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Ian Desmond and 2B Jurickson Profar are not in the starting lineup against Cincinnati Reds SP Dan Straily Wednesday, June 22. OF Ryan Rua will start in center field and is batting sixth in the lineup. 1B Prince Fielder will serve as the designated hitter, while 1B Mitch Moreland will start at first base and is batting seventh.

Fantasy Tip: Rua is hitting .310 with four home runs and 10 RBI this month and is a sleeper starting candidate for owners in daily fantasy leagues. Moreland is hitting .316 with one home run and two RBI over the last seven days and should have value in some daily fantasy leagues.

Rangers | Derek Holland placed on DL

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 13:48:27 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with should inflammation Wednesday, June 22.

Fantasy Tip: Holland's fantasy value is hanging by a thread, and he is only viable as a stash candidate in cavernous mixed and AL-only setups given his 5.20 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 5.3 K/9 through 14 starts. Stay tuned for updates.

Rangers | Colby Lewis suffers cramp, first loss

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 22:01:05 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Colby Lewis (arm) was roughed up for six runs over a season-low tying five innings on Tuesday, June 21, against the Cincinnati Reds before leaving with cramping in his triceps. He is expected to be evaluated Wednesday, June 22.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis, who flirted with a perfect game in his last time out, has been riding low strikeout rates and good run support for most of the season, so he was due to pick up his first loss. The injury doesn't sound too serious, however, so his owners shouldn't be too afraid of using him on the road Monday against the New York Yankees.

Rangers | Prince Fielder, Mitch Moreland starting

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 14:15:38 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Prince Fielder will serve as the designated hitter against Cincinnati Reds SP Anthony DeSclafani Tuesday, June 21, and is batting sixth. 1B Mitch Moreland will start at first base and is batting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: Fielder has been more successful at the plate in June and has at five hits and three RBI in his last six games. Moreland is hitting .313 with one home run and two RBI over the last seven days. Both players should be decent options for owners in daily fantasy leagues.
