Rangers | Neftali Feliz's velocity down

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 10:00:05 -0700

Texas Rangers RP Neftali Feliz's average fastball velocity is down from 96.3 mph, during his 2010 and 2011 stints as closer, to 92.2 this season. His heat has been inconsistent from outing to outing, as well. Feliz said he's aware of the drop-off but is focusing more on making sure he stays in the lower part of the strike zone. He said that the change in his role could cause him to throw harder, too, because "Obviously, there is more energy and adrenaline. You have to do your job with a sense of urgency."

Fantasy Tip: Saves-desperate fantasy owners should grab him with the hope he'll improve, whether it be via the intangible factor of closing or simply more time on the mound since his 2012 surgery.

Rangers | Neftali Feliz wants to close

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 07:50:52 -0700

Texas Rangers RP Neftali Feliz said he wants to be a closer.

Fantasy Tip: Feliz had his sights set on being a starter for a couple of years before his elbow required Tommy John surgery. Feliz could be a solid closer once again if he regains his pre-injury form.

Rangers | Neftali Feliz takes over at closer

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 05:49:55 -0700

Texas Rangers RP Neftali Feliz will take over as closer after the team dealt RP Joakim Soria. "The Feliz of old is a dominant, elite closer," general manager Jon Daniels said. "He may get that opportunity, whether it's as a traditional closer or in some other way. He's still so young and you still see the ability, just not as consistently. It would be a good test for him to see how he responds."

Fantasy Tip: Feliz should be picked up in AL-only leagues if he's available and most mixed formats if you need saves. He hasn't shown to be the dominant pitcher pre-Tommy John surgery, but he could get better as the season goes on. Corey Knebel could also figure into the mix at some point.

Rangers | Alex Rios denies worry over trade rumors

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 14:28:18 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Alex Rios denied a report that a friend of his sasid trade talks have negatively impacted his performance.

Fantasy Tip: It's probably more so the lack of power that's bringing him down. In a new, competitive environment, he may get a jolt there. He seems to play up or down to whatever competitive environment his current team is experiencing.

Rangers | Alex Rios back in lineup

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 14:16:10 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Alex Rios (ankle) is back in the lineup Wednesday, July 23, after missing four games due to a sprained right ankle. Rios said he was ready to play Tuesday, July 22, but "wasn't at 100 percent." He's wearing a heavy wrap on it, but it had improved before Wednesday's game.

Fantasy Tip: Throw him back into your lineup, as well.

Rangers | Joakim Soria has partial no-trade clause

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 16:31:12 -0700

Texas Rangers RP Joakim Soria has a partial no-trade clause in his contract which stipulates a number of teams he cannot be traded. He does not know which teams are included, and he isn't worried about being traded before the July 31 non-waiver deadline. "I can't control that, so I don't worry about it," Soria said. "Obviously, people say things are there are rumors, but I don't worry about it too much."

Rangers | Nick Martinez activated

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 13:24:41 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Nick Martinez (back) was activated from the disabled list Tuesday, July 22, to start against the New York Yankees.

Fantasy Tip: Owning Martinez outside of AL-only leagues is unadvised.

Rangers | Geovany Soto back to DL

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 12:48:48 -0700

Texas Rangers C Geovany Soto (groin) was placed on the disabled list Tuesday, July 22, with a strained right groin. Soto left the game early Monday, July 21, with tightness in the same groin.

Fantasy Tip: If you took a leap of faith on Soto, and cannot stash him in a disabled list slot, he is safe to drop. When healthy, he has marginal value in two-catcher formats and AL-only leagues, so check back for his return.

Rangers | Alex Rios target for a few teams?

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 10:02:31 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Alex Rios is the subject of trade interest from the Toronto Blue Jays, one of his former teams, because of their recent rash of offensive injuries, according to sources. The Kansas City Royals and Seattle Mariners are also interested, and the San Francisco Giants may increase their attention toward him, as well.

Fantasy Tip: Rios could receive a jolt from new surroundings and gain some more fantasy life, especially in the power department. Toronto would be the preferred stop to facilitate that rebound.

Rangers | Alex Rios bothered by trade interest?

Tue, 22 Jul 2014 09:57:20 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Alex Rios may be bothered by trade rumors, according to a friend. Rios' production has dropped lately.

Fantasy Tip: Rios' power hasn't shown up much this season, but a new environment could reinvigorate him, as it has in the past when he was swapped. He's not a bad buy-low candidate for fantasy purposes even with his new BA-leaning skill set.
