News: Beltre was 1 for 4 in a 4-0 loss to Oakland in Sunday's season finale.
Impact: Beltre finished fourth in the AL batting race with a .324 average. It was the second highest mark of his career, trailing only his .334 clip in his final season for the Dodgers in 2004.
Mon. Sep 29, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Harrison (back) is expected to start throwing again in January, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Impact: Harrison needed spinal fusion surgery in his lower back in June, and it was thought to be a possible career-ending injury at the time. It appears he is on track to begin his recovery process in January, however, which could eventually lead to a return to the mound. It's unclear what his timetable is at this point, but he may be able to return at some point in the 2015 season.
Mon. Sep 29, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Perez (elbow) expects to start throwing again in November, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Impact: Perez underwent Tommy John surgery in May after suffering a partially torn UCL. The typical timetable for the surgery is 12-to-18 months, leaving the possibility of Perez pitching next season. Throwing is the first step in his recovery from the surgery, but he is still a ways from returning from the injury.

News: Martinez allowed two runs on four hits and two strikeouts in 5.2 innings in the Rangers' 4-0 loss to the Athletics on Sunday.
Impact: Martinez got the start in place of Derek Holland. He's allowed two or fewer runs in four of his last five starts and had a 2.22 ERA in September, but he'll finish the year with a 4.55 ERA overall.
Sep 28, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Martinez will take the hill in place of Derek Holland for Sunday's regular-season finale, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Impact: Martinez was originally scheduled to start Sunday, but that came into question when Saturday's starter, Derek Holland, was scratched due to migraine headaches. There was a chance that the Rangers would elect to go with Holland instead Sunday, but they'll instead stick to the original schedule. Martinez will make his 24th start of the year for the Rangers and owns a 4.61 ERA over 134.2 innings.
Sep 28, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Holland (head) will not start Sunday's season finale, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.
Impact: Holland was originally scheduled to start Saturday, but was scratched due to a migraine headache. There was a chance he would take the hill in Sunday's finale, but Nick Martinez will instead receive the starting nod. Holland ended up making five September starts for the Rangers in 2014, turning in a 1.31 ERA and 1.02 WHIP over 34.1 innings.
Sep 28, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Chirinos is out of the lineup Sunday against the Athletics, according to Rangers Vice President of Communications John Blake.
Impact: Tomas Tellis will get the start at catcher with Chirinos out. With a lack of catching options for the Rangers, Chirinos will likely be back behind the plate for Texas in 2015.
Sat. Sep 27, 2014 | STATS
News: Holland has been scratched from his start against Oakland on Saturday night because of a migraine headache.
Impact: Holland missed the first five months of the season after injuring his left knee when he tripped over his dog at home during the offseason. He is 2-0 with a 1.31 ERA in five starts.
Sat. Sep 27, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Baker will start Saturday's game in place of Derek Holland, who was scratched with a migraine, MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan reports.
Impact: Baker hasn't started against the A's this season, but he did face them three times out of the bullpen, tossing five scoreless innings while giving up just three hits and posting a 2:1 K:BB.
Sat. Sep 27, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Holland (head) was scratched from Saturday's start against the A's due to a migraine, MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan reports.
Impact: Scott Baker will get the start in Holland's place. Nick Martinez is still scheduled to start Sunday as of now, so Holland may not pitch again this season. Expect an update on Holland's status as more details become available.
Fri. Sep 26, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Tepesch struck out two and walked four while giving up six runs -- five earned -- on six hits over 4.1 innings against the A's on Friday night.
Impact: The 2014 campaign ends for Tepesch with a 4.36 ERA to his name, and what seems to be an almost certain ticket for Triple-A to begin 2015. His destination may hinge on the health of the Rangers' other starters, and the moves made by the front office during the winter, but he's shown the ceiling of a No. 5 starter thus far in parts of two big league seasons.
Fri. Sep 26, 2014 | STATS
News: The inspirational Lewis was sharp Thursday.
Impact: Lewis pitched around five walks and six hits with seven strikeouts in seven innings. With his season-ending no-decision, the 35-year-old Texas right-hander coming off partial hip replacement surgery ended up tied with Japanese ace Yu Darvish for the team lead with 10 wins. "We talked all season about how inspirational he is," Texas manager Tim Bogar said.
Fri. Sep 26, 2014 | STATS
News: Beltre hit a walk-off home run in the ninth inning Thursday.
Impact: Beltre needs one more dinger to reach 20 for the fifth straight year.
Fri. Sep 26, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Beltre went 2-for-4 with a walk-off home run Thursday against Oakland -- his first homer since Sept. 9.
Impact: Although Beltre has done a great job maintaining a high average (.326) this year, his power has faded significantly -- he has just 19 home runs, the fewest he's hit since his disastrous 2009 with Seattle. If he can hit one out over this final weekend, though, Beltre will notch his 12th career 20-homer season.
Fri. Sep 26, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Despite allowing 11 baserunners (six hits, five walks) in seven innings Thursday, Lewis limited the Athletics to just one run. He struck out seven and received no decision in the eventual win.
Impact: The Rangers ended up winning via walk-off, but that didn't help Lewis any. After missing all of last season due to injury, he made 29 starts this year, but finished with a 5.18 ERA and 1.52 WHIP, ugly numbers that make his situation for next season rather uncertain. Only five pitchers in the American League have allowed more hits this year than Lewis's 211 in 170.1 innings, and all five of them have pitched more than 200 innings.
Thu. Sep 25, 2014 | STATS
News: Odor was 2 for 3 with his 13th double and ninth homer in a 5-1 win over Houston on Wednesday.
Impact: Odor has hit .325 with 15 RBIs over his last 22 games.
Thu. Sep 25, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Profar will receive a platelet-rich plasma injection for his shoulder Friday, Anthony Andro of FOX Sports Southwest reports.
Impact: The Rangers are hoping the injection will help clear up some of the soreness Profar has been experiencing with his problematic shoulder. If the shot fails to deliver its desired effect, Profar could be shut down for multiple months in an attempt to aid his recovery.
Wed. Sep 24, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Rosales is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Astros.
Impact: Ryan Rua will start at first base, as Rosales gets a day off. He's had a strong campaign, slashing .283/.351/.408 in what's been an otherwise disappointing season for the Rangers.
Wed. Sep 24, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Chirinos is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Astros.
Impact: Tomas Tellis will fill in behind the plate, batting sixth. Chirinos has played well of late, and this appears to just be a regular day off for the catcher.
Wed. Sep 24, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Odor was 2-for-3 with a walk, a double, a stolen base and his ninth home run of the year Wednesday in a win over the Astros.
Impact: When Odor is on, he can really fill up a stat sheet. Fortunately for the rookie, those games have become more common in the second half, as witnessed by his seven multi-hit games and .318/.375/.530 line in September.
Wed. Sep 24, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Bonilla (3-0) threw six shutout innings Wednesday against the Astros, allowing four hits with two walks and seven strikeouts to notch his third win of the season.
Impact: Bonilla became the first Rangers pitcher to win each of his first three big-league starts. The 24-year-old had two rocky relief appearances in September before being added to the rotation. As a starter, Bonilla sports a 2.12 ERA with 14 strikeouts over 17 innings.
Wed. Sep 24, 2014 | STATS
News: Martinez pitched 6 2-3 scoreless innings to lead the Texas Rangers to a 2-1 victory over the Houston Astros on Tuesday night.
Impact: Martinez (5-11, 4.61 ERA) got his first win at home and his first at night. The rookie right-hander went into the game 0-6 in eight starts at Globe Life Park in Arlington and 0-10 in 14 starts at night. He allowed five hits, no walks and struck out five while winning in back-to-back outings for the first time.
Wed. Sep 24, 2014 | STATS
News: Smolinski had three hits in a 2-1 win over Houston on Tuesday night.
Impact: The rookie outfielder boosted his average to .377 in 19 career games.
Wed. Sep 24, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Fielder (neck) has begun to swing a bat, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Impact: Fielder anticipates being healthy for the start of spring training, though that will obviously hinge on how well he progresses this winter.
Tue. Sep 23, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Feliz was unavailable out of the bullpen Tuesday, and Neal Cotts logged the save for the Rangers against the Astros.
Impact: Feliz threw 31 pitches over the previous two days, so the Rangers gave him the night off, but he should available for the next Rangers save that presents itself.
Tue. Sep 23, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Cotts notched his second save of the season Tuesday, giving up one run on a hit and a walk with one strikeout, while preserving a two-run lead over the Astros.
Impact: The Rangers' regular closer, Neftali Feliz was given the night off after throwing 31 pitches the last two days, but he should be ready for the next save situation that presents itself.
Tue. Sep 23, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Martinez pitched 6.2 shutout innings Tuesday, allowing five hits and no walks with five strikeouts against the Astros to improve to 5-11 on the season.
Impact: This was the first time all season (23 starts) that Martinez didn't issue a walk, and he has been a much better pitcher in the second half. Over his last five outings he boasts a 2.12 ERA and will aim to continue his strong finish in the Rangers' final game of the season Sunday against the A's.
Tue. Sep 23, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Rangers GM Jon Daniels said Tuesday that Profar is dealing with instability in his right shoulder and will undergo an MRI, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. Daniels suspects Profar might be shut down for a two-to-three months as a result.
Impact: After his entire 2014 campaign was wiped out due to a torn muscle in his shoulder, Profar was on track to pick up some at-bats in the Arizona Fall League and return at full health for 2015, but that plan looks dicey. Although the Rangers will wait to see what the MRI reveals, Profar will almost certainly be held out of the AFL, and his participation for the early part of spring training remains something of a question as well. Through all his injury woes, Profar will only be 21 at the start of next season, but the ceiling for the former top-tier prospect seems to have lowered considerably since 2012.
Tue. Sep 23, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Adduci (concussion) has been activated from the 7-day DL and will be available Tuesday against the Astros, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Impact: Adduci had been sidelined for the past three weeks with concussion symptoms, but has finally made it through the league's protocol after resuming baseball activities without any setbacks. He'll likely assume a reserve role the rest of the way for the Rangers, who seem more inclined to take a look at Ryan Rua and Jake Smolinski at the two corner outfield spots.
Tue. Sep 23, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Odor is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Astros, according to Rangers VP of Comm. John Blake.
Impact: Odor will get a day off after starting the last seven games. Guilder Rodriguez will start at second base in Odor's place.
Tue. Sep 23, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Martin is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Astros, according to Rangers VP of Comm. John Blake.
Impact: Martin tallied eight multi-hit efforts between Sept. 5 and Sept. 19, but he will get a day off after going 1-for-11 over his last three contests. Dan Robertson will cover center field in Martin's place.
Tue. Sep 23, 2014 | STATS
News: Odor hit his seventh triple and drove in three runs in a 4-3 win over Houston on Monday.
Impact: Odor has hit .313 with eight RBIs over his last eight games.
Tue. Sep 23, 2014 | STATS
News: Holland limited Houston to two earned runs over seven-plus innings in a 4-3 victory over the Astros on Monday.
Impact: Holland has been rock solid through five starts this year, going 2-0 with a 1.31 ERA and walking only four batters in 34 1-3 innings.
Mon. Sep 22, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Odor had only one hit Monday, but made it count, tripling home three runs in the third inning.
Impact: Odor has been locked in this month, hitting .302 with eight RBI. At just 20 years old, the infielder is up to 46 RBI this season to go along with seven triples and eight home runs.
Mon. Sep 22, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Rodriguez came up big Monday, driving home the deciding run with a seventh-inning single.
Impact: The September call-up recorded his first two hits of his career Monday night, including the seventh inning knock. The 31-year-old infielder is 2-for-9 since being summoned from the minor leagues.
Mon. Sep 22, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Holland earned his second win of the year Monday, going seven innings and allowing three runs—two earned.
Impact: Holland has pitched well since making his season debut this month. The lefty has allowed just five earned runs in 34.1 innings this September, good for a 1.31 ERA. Holland's final start will come this weekend against the Athletics.
Mon. Sep 22, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Baker (triceps) will be available out of the bullpen for the Rangers over the final week of the season.
Impact: He threw a successful bullpen session Friday, and is healthy enough to be an option in the mid-innings over the final handful of games.
Mon. Sep 22, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Bonilla will start for the Rangers on Wednesday against the Astros.
Impact: In 11 innings as a starter this season, Bonilla has posted a 3.27 ERA, but his 7:8 K:BB ratio suggests that he's been extremely fortunate in those two starts. Scott Baker will be available out of the bullpen as the long man this week.
Mon. Sep 22, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Andrus is not in the lineup Monday against the Astros.
Impact: This will be the second straight game Andrus has been out of the lineup, as presumably the Rangers simply want to give Andrus some rest and give Luis Sardinas some opportunities as the Rangers have long been out of contention.
Mon. Sep 22, 2014 | STATS
News: Rua hit his first major league homer, connecting off Huston Street in the ninth inning as the Rangers beat the playoff-bound Los Angeles Angels 2-1 Sunday for their eighth win in nine games.
Impact: Rua has hit safely in six straight, going 11 for 26 with eight runs scored.
Sep 21, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Tepesch allowed one run on four hits and two walks while striking out three in seven innings in the Rangers' 2-1 win over the Angels on Sunday.
Impact: That makes two straight one-run outings for Tepesch. He's allowed eight runs in four starts in September. His ERA improved to 4.14 as a result of the start. He'll be back on the mound Friday against the Athletics in his final start of the season.
Sep 21, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Rios (thumb) has been ruled out for the remainder of the 2014 season, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Impact: Rios has been out of action since Sept. 4 due to complications involving a bruised thumb. Although he seemed to be nearing a return, there was little incentive to push him with the team far out of the playoff hunt. Instead, the Rangers will play it cautiously with their $68 million man, waiting until next spring to allow him to return to action. In the meantime, Dan Robertson and Jake Smolinski should continue to see extra reps during the final part of the season.
Sep 21, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Andrus is not in the lineup Sunday against the Angels, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Impact: The Rangers might just want to give the 21-year-old Luis Sardinas some playing time at shortstop, as Andrus currently has no reported injuries. Between Andrus, Sardinas, Rougned Odor, and Jurickson Profar, the Rangers have a wealth of possible options at middle infield and only two spots.
Sep 21, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Profar is experiencing additional shoulder soreness, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Impact: Profar saw Dr. Neal ElAttrache on Friday and is currently awaiting diagnosis on this new development. After Profar missed the entire 2014 season with the shoulder issue, the Rangers had hoped he'd be able to play in the Arizona Fall League, but this is no longer the case according to MLB.com. The hope is that the latest setback isn't serious and that he'll still be able to take the field during winter ball.
Sep 21, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lewis got hammered for eight runs - seven earned - in five innings in Saturday's loss to the Angels. He gave up nine hits and a walk and struck out three.
Impact: The loss snapped the Rangers' season-best seven-game winning streak and added to the Angels' league-leading record. In his past four starts against the Angels, Lewis is 0-4 with a 11.51 ERA. He'll take the mound for his last start of the season Thursday at home against the Oakland A's.
Sat. Sep 20, 2014 | STATS
News: Bonilla moved to 2-0 as the Rangers beat the playoff-bound Angels 12-3 Friday night for their seventh straight victory.
Impact: Bonilla yielded two hits and four walks in his second major league start. He'll get one more chance on the bump.
Sat. Sep 20, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Rios (thumb) remains out of the lineup Saturday against the Angels.
Impact: The Rangers haven't ruled Rios out for the season, but his availability over the final week remains uncertain. After having his sutures removed last week, he said that he intends to wait until the incision fully heals before returning to the lineup.
Sat. Sep 20, 2014 | STATS
News: Smolinski hit a two-run homer as the Rangers beat the playoff-bound Angels 12-3 Friday night for their seventh straight victory.
Impact: Smolinski is hitting .389 in 15 games.
Sat. Sep 20, 2014 | STATS
News: Rua had four hits and the Rangers beat the playoff-bound Angels 12-3 Friday night for their seventh straight victory.
Impact: Rua is hitting .320 in 19 games.
Sat. Sep 20, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Martin went 2-for-5 with two runs scored and a stolen base against the Angels on Friday night.
Impact: Martin can be streaky at times but has remained one of the hottest hitters in the game. Since Aug. 10, he's raised his batting average from .251 to .281 while scoring 17 runs and stealing 11 bases. Friday's stolen base was Martin's 29th of the year.
Sat. Sep 20, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Baker (triceps) threw in the bullpen Friday and could pitch again this season, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Impact: It's unclear if Baker would make another start or pitch in long relief. In any event, his value will be limited over the final week of the season.
Fri. Sep 19, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Rua was 4-for-5 with two runs scored and one RBI against the Angels on Friday night.
Impact: It was a career best performance for Rua, albeit he's only had 71 at-bats so far. Rua bumped up his batting average from .286 to .320 in one night, and due to injury and roster expansion he will continue to see chances at the plate.
Fri. Sep 19, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Smolinski went 1-for-5 with a run scored and two RBI as he hit his second homer of the year on Friday against the Angels.
Impact: Since being activated from the DL on Tuesday, Smolinski has gone 7-for-18 with two home runs, four runs scored and four RBI while displaying a .389 batting average. Smolinski should continue to see regular at-bats for the remainder of the season.
Fri. Sep 19, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Bonilla (2-0) gave up two runs on two hits over five innings pitched as he allowed four walks and struck out four in the win on Friday against the Angels.
Impact: The 24-year old Bonilla stymied an Angels lineup that has been smashing the ball over the last month or so. He kept the ball on the ground for the most part, but did allow too many walks in the game. He'll need to harness his control and command if he wants a shot at a rotation spot in 2015.
Fri. Sep 19, 2014 | STATS
News: Martinez earned his first win in five starts in Thursday's 7-2 victory over Oakland.
Impact: Martinez (4-11, 4.85 ERA) allowed two runs and three hits in 5 2-3 innings. The seven runs of support were two more than in his previous four games.
Fri. Sep 19, 2014 | STATS
News: Smolinski had his first four-hit game and drove in a run in a 7-2 win over Oakland on Thursday.
Impact: Smolinski is batting .408 (20 for 49) with eight RBIs in his first 14 major league games.
Fri. Sep 19, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Rios (thumb) remains out of the lineup Friday against the Angels.
Impact: Rios' status for a return this season remains uncertain, as he has been adamant that he will wait until the incision fully heals before rejoining the lineup. He will miss his 13th straight start Friday.
Thu. Sep 18, 2014 | STATS
News: Holland gave up one run in 6 1-3 innings Wednesday but did not get a decision in a 6-1 win in Oakland.
Impact: Holland (1-0, 0.99 ERA) has pitched into the seventh inning in each his four starts since returning from left knee surgery and allowed a total of three runs.
Thu. Sep 18, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Smolinski went 4-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in Thursday's win at Oakland.
Impact: Smolinski has hit safely in all three games since being activated from the DL, with a homer and three RBI during that span.
Thu. Sep 18, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Martinez picked up his fourth win of the season by tossing 5.2 innings of two-run ball at Oakland on Thursday. He walked three and struck out a pair of batters.
Impact: Martinez has pitched relatively well in his last four starts, allowing just seven earned runs in 23 innings. Still, he doesn't go deep into games, and pitches for the worst team in all of baseball. He does make two home starts next week, toeing the rubber against Houston and Oakland, in case you need him.
Thu. Sep 18, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Chirinos is out of the lineup Thursday against the A's.
Impact: Tomas Telis will step in behind the plate to catch starter Nick Martinez as Chirinos sits following three straight starts. Chirinos has gone 6-for-14 with three RBI since his return from a neck injury and will remain the primary option over the final week-plus.
Thu. Sep 18, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Rios (thumb) remains out of the lineup Thursday against the A's.
Impact: It's been close to a week now since Rios had the stitches removed from his thumb, but his status for a return to the Rangers' lineup remains up in the air. The 33-year-old said last week that he wants to wait until the incision fully heals before returning to action, which means he may or may not play again this season.
Thu. Sep 18, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Arencibia went 1-for-5 with a go-ahead three-run homer in the ninth inning to beat the Athletics on Wednesday.
Impact: The Rangers got to A's closer Sean Doolittle for five runs in the ninth, but the big hit was Arencibia's blast. The 28-year-old continues to be an all-or-nothing hitter, as 10 of his 34 base knocks in 2014 have left the yard.
Thu. Sep 18, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Odor went 2-for-5 with two doubles, an RBI and a run Wednesday in a win over the Athletics.
Impact: Odor's second double tied the game in the top of the ninth, and he ended up scoring the lead run on a J.P. Arencibia home run. The rookie has struggled at the plate most of the year, but is slashing .326/.383/.512 in 43 September at-bats.
Thu. Sep 18, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Holland allowed one run on four hits with three walks and five strikeouts over 6.1 innings Wednesday in a no-decision versus the Athletics.
Impact: Holland was very good again in this one, but was outdueled by A's starter Jeff Samardzija. The left-hander's ERA actually climbed from 0.86 to 0.99 on the season. Holland hasn't given up more than one run in any of his four starts since returning from the disabled list. He'll try to keep it going Monday against the Astros.
Wed. Sep 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Baker (triceps) will not make his next scheduled start Friday against the Angels, Jeff Wilson of Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Impact: Scratched last weekend due to a bout of right triceps tendinitis, Baker has reported improvement in recent days but still is not ready to pitch. Lisalverto Bonilla will draw another start in his absence, but the hope is likely that Baker can return and make one more start before the year is out.
Wed. Sep 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Bonilla will start Friday against the Angels, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Impact: The 24-year-old right-hander will get another opportunity in place of Scott Baker (triceps), who is making progress but still isn't ready to start for Texas. Bonilla picked up the win in his first career start last Saturday against Atlanta, allowing two runs on four hits and four walks, with three strikeouts over six innings. He posted just a 4.10 ERA and 1.31 WHIP in 39 appearances (six starts) for Triple-A Round Rock.
Wed. Sep 17, 2014 | STATS
News: Tepesch earned his first win in seven starts in a 6-3 victory over Oakland on Tuesday night.
Impact: Tepesch (5-10, 4.47 ERA) allowed three runs in six innings to beat the A's for the first time in six career appearances.
Wed. Sep 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Rua is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Athletics.
Impact: Rua has been a nice surprise for the Rangers since being called up Aug. 29, hitting .273 with seven RBI and a stolen base over 66 at-bats. Though he'll be rested Wednesday, his versatility should allow him to play on a near-everyday basis the rest of the way.
Wed. Sep 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Feliz secured his 10th save of the year after throwing a perfect ninth inning Tuesday against the A's.
Impact: Feliz has not allowed a run in his last eight appearances, while allowing just six hits in his last 7.1 innings. He now has a solid 2.28 ERA and 0.98 WHIP, but just a mediocre 17:9 K:BB in 27.2 innings this year.
Wed. Sep 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Smolinski hit the first home run of his career Tuesday, going 1-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored.
Impact: Fresh off the DL, Smolinski jumped right back into action and immediately earned himself a personal keepsake. He returns to a fine .375/.432/.525 slash line in 40-at-bats this year.
Wed. Sep 17, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Tepesch pitched six quality innings Tuesday, allowing three runs on five hits and two walks, while striking out one in the victory over the A's.
Impact: At best, Tepesch has been at times serviceable this season, as Tuesday's start was his 10th quality outing on the year. In 20 starts (114.2 innings), Tepesch has a 4.47 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and a mediocre 51:38 K:BB. His next start is set for Sunday on the road against the Angels.
Tue. Sep 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Choice (hamstring) will miss the rest of the season, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram's Jeff Wilson reports.
Impact: The injury occurred in Sunday's game while Choice was legging out a double. Jake Smolinski will likely pick up the extra playing time in Choice's absence over the final 13 games of the season.
Tue. Sep 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Darvish (elbow) is not expected to resume throwing before he returns home at the end of the season, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.
Impact: Darvish still has not been cleared to throw, more than a month after being shut down due to elbow inflammation, and he likely won't be before the end of September. The Rangers figure to monitor Darvish's progress closely in Japan in the offseason, though there's been nothing to suggest the right-hander is any danger of missing the start of the 2015 campaign.
Tue. Sep 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Choo (elbow) will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left ankle Wednesday, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Werth Star-Telegram reports.
Impact: Surgery to remove a bone spur from Choo's elbow last month officially ended the 32-year-old's season, but he now needs another procedure to repair torn cartilage in his ankle. He's expected to be able to resume a running program in just 6-to-8 weeks, so it seems likely Choo will be fully recovered from both surgeries come spring training. Choo will be an obvious bounce-back candidate in 2015, after hitting just .242/.340/.374 with 13 homers and three steals in 123 games this season.
