Rangers | Chi Chi Gonzalez demoted

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 17:41:17 -0700

Updating a previous report, the Texas Rangers have optioned SP Chi Chi Gonzalez to Class AAA Round Rock. In a corresponding move, RP Alex Claudio was recalled from Round Rock.

Fantasy Tip: Gonzalez is 0-2 with an 8.71 ERA through three MLB starts this season, with nine walks and just seven strikeouts through 10 1/3 innings. The club will not need a fifth starter until July 19, but there is no guarantee that Gonzalez will be recalled for that game based on the way he's performed.

Rangers | A.J. Griffin placed on DL

Sun, 08 May 2016 13:21:30 -0700

Texas Rangers SP A.J. Griffin (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday, May 8, because of right shoulder stiffness. The team recalled P Alex Claudio from Class AAA Round Rock.

Fantasy Tip: The Rangers plan on using a four-man rotation with Griffin sidelined. Cesar Ramos appears to be the most likely candidate to start if the team needs a fifth starter but probably should only be owned in AL-only leagues at this point.

Rangers | Drew Stubbs signed

Sat, 07 May 2016 10:50:22 -0700

The Texas Rangers have signed free-agent OF Drew Stubbs (Braves) to a major-league contract. He is expected to serve as a reserve outfielder even though OF Delino DeShields Jr. has struggled at the plate this season. In corresponding moves, P Alex Claudio was optioned to Class AAA Round Rock and OF Josh Hamilton (knee) was moved from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: It's uncertain how much playing time Stubbs will receive but he is not worth rostering outside of AL-only fantasy leagues. The 31-year-old hit .237 with a home run and three RBI in 38 at-bats for Atlanta earlier this year.

Rangers | Yu Darvish back to the DL

Wed, 13 Aug 2014 16:27:02 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish (elbow) is heading back to the disabled list with right elbow inflammation. SP Robbie Ross will start against the Tampa Bay Rays Thursday, Aug. 14. P Alex Claudio, who was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock, will be in the bullpen for the Rangers Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: It's another tough break for the Rangers this year and for owners of Darvish. It's unclear exactly how serious his arm problem is until more tests are done. Hold onto him for now in all formats. Ross is worth considering in AL-only leagues, but you can find better starting pitching options in daily games.
