Rangers | Shin-Soo Choo hitting seventh Wednesday

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 12:34:02 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Shin-Soo Choo is hitting seventh against Baltimore Orioles left-handed SP Wei-Yin Chen Wednesday, July 1.

Fantasy Tip: Choo ($3,500, 7.0% of cap), despite a poor average this year, can still be valuable for FantasyScore owners for his power. However, a move down in the order and a matchup against a lefty say to avoid him tonight. Choo is hitting .146 (15-for-103) with just one of his 10 homers against southpaws this year.

Rangers | Elvis Andrus moved up in order

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 12:30:34 -0700

Texas Rangers SS Elvis Andrus is hitting second against Baltimore Orioles SP Wei-Yin Chen Wednesday, July 1.

Fantasy Tip: Andrus ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) gains some daily value with a move up in the order, but he still is devoid of power and hasn't been running as much as he did earlier in his career. However, he has good marks against lefties this year (.283 with two home runs) and could be a sleeper pick that returns decent value this evening.

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 | Rougned Odor not playing

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 12:21:08 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Rougned Odor is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, July 1. 2B Hanser Alberto is starting at the keystone and hitting leadoff against Baltimore Orioles SP Wei-Yin Chen.

Fantasy Tip: Alberto ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) has limited power upside (zero home runs, three RBI in 68 at-bats), although his start today and placement atop the lineup deserves your attention at FantasyScore, albeit as a desperation sleeper pick.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland belts two more HRs

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 21:13:27 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland swatted two more home runs Tuesday, June 30, against the Baltimore Orioles, finishing with four RBIs and a walk. He has four homers in the past two nights.

Fantasy Tip: Moreland ($3,800; or 7.6% of cap) will obviously cool down, but he is worth riding in FantasyScore until his power numbers tail off.

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.

Rangers | Josh Hamilton activated

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 12:38:05 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton (hamstring) was activated from the 15-day disabled list on Tuesday, June 30.

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.

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 21:39:18 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Lewis ($4,300; or 8.6% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore for this unfavorable matchup.

Rangers | Matt Harrison set for rehab start

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 21:38:37 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Matt Harrison (back) will make a start for Triple-A Round Rock Wednesday, July 1, as he makes his way back from spinal fusion surgery.

Fantasy Tip: Harrison is nearing a return to the big club, but his exact role is uncertain. Avoid him in FantasyScore until he can officially return and pitch in the rotation and prove his health.

Rangers | Josh Hamilton says he is ready

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 21:38:09 -0700

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($3,400; or 6.8% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore until he can play at least one full game without any setbacks.

Rangers | Mitch Moreland swats pair of homers

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 21:37:32 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Mitch Moreland belted a pair of home runs Monday, June 29, against the Baltimore Orioles, finishing with three RBIs. It was his sixth-career multi-homer game, and first since May 2013.

Fantasy Tip: Moreland ($3,800; or 7.6% of cap) has had a fruitful June, hitting .313 (30-for-96) with four doubles, seven homers and 21 RBIs in 24 games in the current month to make him a FantasyScore steal at this price level.

Rangers | Wandy Rodriguez is a road warrior

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 21:36:54 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Wandy Rodriguez allowed one run while scattering eight hits over five-plus innings with seven strikeouts in a road win against the Baltimore Orioles Monday, June 29. He is 5-0 with a 2.23 ERA in eight road outings this season.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($4,900; or 9.8% of cap) has re-emerged as a respectable FantasyScore option, especially when he is pitching on the road.

Rangers | Derek Holland to have MRI

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 17:59:24 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland (shoulder) will have a follow-up MRI this week before he is cleared for the next step in his rehab. He has stretched his throwing program out to 120 feet, and the next step might be throwing from a mound.

Fantasy Tip: Holland is making his way back from a serious shoulder injury, so it's uncertain how effective he will be when he finally returns and in what capacity he will work. FantasyScore players need to let him get a few appearances under his belt before trusting him again.

Rangers | Kyle Blanks not yet cleared

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 17:53:06 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Kyle Blanks (Achilles') has not yet been cleared to resume baseball activities.

Fantasy Tip: Blanks can be a cheap source of power for FantasyScore players, but he continues to have issues staying healthy.

Rangers | Delino DeShields making progress

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 17:51:39 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. (hamstring) took a scheduled day off Monday, June 29, from his rehab stint at Triple-A Round Rock. He served as the designated hitter in two games over the weekend. He is scheduled to play in the outfield for the Express Tuesday, June 30, but manager Jeff Banister said he does not want to rush DeShields, a speed player returning from a hamstring issue.

Fantasy Tip: DeShields will not come off the 15-day disabled list until at least Friday, so FantasyScore players will want to wait until the weekend to let him prove his health and play without any setbacks.
