Rangers | Nomar Mazara extends streak

Wed, 04 May 2016 19:49:41 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Nomar Mazara went 1-for-3 with a run scored, walk and strikeout Wednesday, May 4, against the Toronto Blue Jays to push his hitting streak to six games.

Fantasy Tip: Mazara is hitting .280 (7-for-25) during his six-game run, actually dropping his overall batting average slightly. He remains a solid fantasy option due to his consistency at the plate. He is getting regular playing time and running with it.

Rangers | Rougned Odor smells like fantasy stud

Wed, 04 May 2016 19:49:20 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Rougned Odor went 2-for-5 with a double, run scored and RBI Wednesday, May 4, against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Fantasy Tip: Odor has managed four multi-hit games over his past five outings, raising his average from .244 to .283 just since April 29. He has logged eight doubles, four homers and 16 RBIS in 106 at-bats, and is a fantasy stud in the middle infield among all formats.

Rangers | Prince Fielder does very little

Wed, 04 May 2016 19:48:10 -0700

Texas Rangers 1B Prince Fielder went hitless in four at-bats with a strikeout Wednesday, May 4, against the Toronto Blue Jays to drop his overall average to .202. The hitless game snaps his modest five-game hitting streak.

Fantasy Tip: Fielder continues to struggle, and he has no RBIs in the month of May with a very subpar .560 OPS overall this season. He will continue to see regular at-bats, so fantasy owners need to stick with him, but two homers through 28 games is not exactly what anyone had in mind.

Rangers | Colby Lewis quality in no-decision

Wed, 04 May 2016 19:47:09 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Colby Lewis allowed three earned runs, five hits and a walk with seven strikeouts over seven innings in a no-decision Wednesday, May 4, against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Fantasy Tip: Lewis has been magnificent lately, posting three straight quality starts while going 1-0 with a 2.70 ERA over his past 20 innings during the three-game span. He has lasted at least six innings in each of his outings this season, posting five quality starts. He isn't quite a must-start in mixed formats because of his low rate of strikeouts, but he is a strong play in AL-only and DFS leagues.

Rangers | Delino DeShields takes a seat

Wed, 04 May 2016 14:31:11 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 4. OF Ryan Rua draws into the lineup in left field and is hitting eighth against Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez.

Fantasy Tip: DeShields' fantasy allure is dropping quickly, as he's hitting just .239/.316/.307 with one home run and three stolen bases in 88 at-bats. He's also been relegated to the bottom of the order lately, which limits his fantasy upside. DeShields' is mainly an asset for his speed, but hitting low in the order hurts his ability to do so. Rua is a low-end outfield option in daily games tonight.

Rangers | Brett Nicholas optioned to Round Rock

Wed, 04 May 2016 12:05:34 -0700

Texas Rangers C Brett Nicholas was optioned to Class AAA Round Rock Wednesday, May 4.

Fantasy Tip: Nicholas was 9-for-35 with a respectable .876 OPS, but Texas also has Bryan Holaday and Bobby Wilson to work behind the plate. Holaday and Wilson project to split starts at catcher, but neither boast much fantasy appeal. Holaday has a career .238/.276/.319 slash line, and Wilson owns a career .203/.266/.299 line. They're both desperation options in deep seasonal leagues.

Rangers | Rougned Odor leaves the yard

Tue, 03 May 2016 23:25:40 -0700

Texas Rangers 2B Rougned Odor went 2-for-5 with a solo home run Tuesday, May 3, against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Fantasy Tip: Odor has managed three multi-hit games over the past four outings, raising his average from .244 to .277 just since April 30. He is on a roll and a must-start in AL-only fantasy leagues and most deeper mixed formats.

Rangers | Martin Perez solid in no-decision

Tue, 03 May 2016 23:25:08 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Martin Perez allowed just four hits and three walks in five scoreless innings with four strikeouts in a no-decision Tuesday, May 3, against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Fantasy Tip: Perez lowered his ERA to 3.60. He has a decent 1.37 WHIP with 18 strikeouts over 35 innings. Perez is a decent fantasy option in AL-only leagues and some deeper mixed formats, but don't expect a lot of strikeouts.

Rangers | Joey Gallo could miss a month

Tue, 03 May 2016 20:47:31 -0700

Texas Rangers 3B Joey Gallo (groin) is expected to miss three to four weeks with a Grade 1 left groin strain. He had the same injury in his other leg in 2013.

Fantasy Tip: Gallo has some of the biggest power in the minors and was a popular stash option. It looks like he may not surface in the bigs until closer to the All-Star break. If you need the roster spot in mixed leagues, cut him. He should be held onto in AL-only leagues.

Rangers | Yu Darvis throws bullpen

Tue, 03 May 2016 11:43:15 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish (elbow) threw a 15-pitch bullpen session Tuesday, May 3.

Fantasy Tip: Darvish is on schedule to make another rehab start this Friday in the minors. He's slated to return later this month if he doesn't have any setbacks in his return from Tommy John surgery. He should remain stashed in all fantasy leagues, as he has the ability to pitch like a fantasy ace upon his return.

Rangers | Nomar Mazara cracks out third HR

Mon, 02 May 2016 20:27:42 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Nomar Mazara went 2-for-4 with a solo home run Monday, May 2, against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Fantasy Tip: Mazara has earned regular playing time and the left-handed hitting rookie has his average up to .333 with three homers and nine RBIs. He is a must-start fantasy option in AL-only leagues, deeper mixed formats and a must-have in long-term keeper formats.

Rangers | A.J. Griffin whiffs nine batters

Mon, 02 May 2016 20:27:09 -0700

Texas Rangers SP A.J. Griffin allowed one earned run, three hits and two walks with nine strikeouts over six innings in a no-decision Monday, May 2, against the Toronto Blue Jays.

Fantasy Tip: Griffin has lasted at least six innings in four of his five outings this season, and he has five or more strikeouts in each of his four past assignments. He is a solid fantasy option across all formats with a 3-0 record and 2.32 ERA with 26 strikeouts across 31 innings and a 1.00 WHIP.

Rangers | Josh Hamilton restarting rehab

Mon, 02 May 2016 16:46:26 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton (knee) will sit out until at least Friday, May 6, before restarting his rehab assignment so that the 20-day "clock" can be reset. Hamilton felt weakness and pain in the back of his left knee over the weekend and received a cortisone shot. General manager Jon Daniels said the team has no expectations for Hamilton to return to full health.

Fantasy Tip: So basically the aging Hamilton will never be at 100% with his knee again in his career, and he's fighting an uphill battle to return to regular playing time for the Rangers this year. The fact that Texas has other options (Ian Desmond, Nomar Mazar, Shin-Soo Choo) at the corner outfield spots also means the Rangers have no reason to rush him back. Only keep Hamilton stashed in the deepest of mixed leagues and AL-only formats. Don't expect much from him from here on out.

Rangers | Yu Darvish on schedule for next outing

Mon, 02 May 2016 12:23:25 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish (elbow) will pitch three innings or 45 pitches for Class AAA Round Rock Friday, May 6.

Fantasy Tip: Darvish remains on track for a return either Saturday, May 21, or Friday, May 27. Continue to stash him in all formats and monitor his return progress. Darvish has been a fantasy ace since entering the league with a 3.27 ERA, a 1.20 WHIP and a 11.2 K/9 through 83 starts.

Rangers | Yu Darvish tosses two innings

Sun, 01 May 2016 17:40:07 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish (elbow) threw two innings in a rehab assignment Sunday, May 1, striking out two and walking one.

Fantasy Tip: Darvish is expected to return in late May, and he should be stashed in all formats in the meantime.
