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.
Tue. Sep 16, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Smolinski (foot) was activated from the disabled list Tuesday.
Impact: Smolinski is ready to play again after recovering from a foot injury he suffered in late July. Expect him to serve as a part-time outfielder for the Rangers the rest of the way.
Tue. Sep 16, 2014 | STATS
News: Martin was 3 for 5 in a 10-3 win over Atlanta on Sunday.
Impact: Martin's bat has really come alive over the last month. The outfielder has hit .382 over his last 30 games eight eight stolen bases.
Mon. Sep 15, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Smolinksi (foot) will travel with the team to Oakland and is expected to be healthy enough to return to the lineup, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Impact: Smolinksi has been sidelined since late July, but the hamstring injury to Michael Choice figures to free up some at-bats for Smolinksi.
Sep 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Sardinas went 3-for-5 with two doubles, four RBI and a couple of runs scored in Sunday's 10-3 rout of the Braves.
Impact: Sardinas was locked in at the plate Sunday afternoon, as the 21-year-old infielder enjoyed the best offensive performance of his young MLB career. He should continue to be afforded plenty of opportunities to display his defense, speed and switch-hitting ability over the next couple of weeks.
Sep 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lewis worked seven strong innings in Sunday's 10-3 victory over the Braves, allowing one earned run on five hits and a walk while striking out two.
Impact: Lewis extended his recent run of solid pitching, as he has become a bit of a workhorse for the injury-plagued Rangers. Having now turned in at least seven innings in four consecutive starts, the veteran hurler has posted a 3.30 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 18:3 K:BB ratio across his last 30 frames. Lewis will be back on the bump Saturday versus the Angels.
Sun. Sep 14, 2014 | STATS
News: Choice has left Texas' game against Atlanta with a strained left hamstring.
Impact: Choice was injured while running the bases on his two-run double in the fifth inning.
Sep 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Choice left Sunday's game with a strained left hamstring and will undergo an MRI on Monday.
Impact: Choice was 2-for-3 with three RBI prior to exiting. He was replaced in right field by Daniel Robertson. More will be known following Monday's MRI, but at this point it seems unlikely he will play Tuesday in Oakland.
Sep 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Mikolas experienced shoulder discomfort last time he played catch, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Impact: Mikolas has dealt with a shoulder issue for a couple weeks, and with him still feeling soreness, it seems there is a good chance he could be shut down for the rest of the season.
Sep 14, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Odor is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Braves, according to Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
Impact: Odor tallied three hits and three RBI over his last four starts, but he will get a day off Sunday. Luis Sardinas will fill in at second base for the Rangers.
Sat. Sep 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Adduci (concussion) has resumed some light cardio activity but doesn't have a timetable for a return, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Impact: There's been no mention of Adduci resuming any sort of baseball-related activities, making a return within a week seem unlikely.
Sat. Sep 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Rios (thumb) indicated he wants his incision to fully heal before he rejoins the lineup, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Impact: Rios wouldn't commit to a return this season, though a lot of that will be determined once his thumb gets evaluated.
Sat. Sep 13, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Rios (thumb) is out of the Rangers' lineup again Saturday.
Impact: Rios will miss an eighth straight start Saturday, and it's uncertain whether he'll be available in any capacity for Sunday's series finale. The sutures were removed from his thumb Friday, but the team has yet to elaborate on the results of his evaluation.
Fri. Sep 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Feliz turned in a perfect ninth inning to record his ninth save in the Rangers' 2-1 win over Atlanta on Friday night.
Impact: He needed just 10 pitches (seven for strikes) to retire the side, including one via strikeout. He has had his shaky moments since moving into the closer's role but has been able to maintain a respectable 2.36 ERA.
Fri. Sep 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Holland allowed just one run on eight hits, did not walk a hitter, and struck out six over seven innings, but came away with a no-decision in the Rangers' 2-1 win over Atlanta on Friday night.
Impact: Holland has been dazzling in three starts since returning from a one-year stint on the disabled list. He hasn't walked a batter in his 21 innings (the team record for innings with no walks is 29 held by Gaylord Perry) and he threw 113 pitches (76 for strikes) in this one so he is already in midseason form. He'll carry an impressive 0.86 ERA into his next start on the road against the struggling A's.
Fri. Sep 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Rios (thumb) remains out of the lineup Friday against the Braves.
Impact: The thumb infection has already cost Rios six starts, and he'll sit again Friday as Michael Choice mans right field for Texas. Rios was to be re-evaluated after having his sutures removed Friday, and if he checks out OK, he could be cleared for action in short order.
Fri. Sep 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Bonilla will start Saturday against the Braves.
Impact: Bonilla will step in to oppose Julio Teheran in his first career major league start, with Scott Baker scratched due to right triceps tendinitis. The 24-year-old right-hander worked primarily out of the bullpen at Triple-A Round Rock this season, posting a 4.10 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 92:25 K:BB across 74.2 innings.
Fri. Sep 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Baker has been scratched from his scheduled start Saturday against the Braves with right triceps tendinitis.
Impact: With Baker ailing, the Rangers will be forced to turn to Lisalverto Bonilla to make his first career start. Baker should be considered day-to-day and questionable to make his next turn until more information becomes available.
Fri. Sep 12, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Chirinos (neck) is back in the lineup Friday against the Braves.
Impact: Chirinos hasn't played in a game since Aug. 28 due to a sore neck, but has been catching bullpen sessions recently and is finally ready to rejoin the lineup. He will bat sixth for the Rangers on Friday.
Thu. Sep 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Martin went 2-for-3 with a homer, a walk and a steal in Thursday's loss to the Angels.
Impact: Martin led off the bottom of the first inning with his seventh home run of the season. It's been a lost season for the Rangers as well as Martin, although the young outfielder has performed better lately, slashing .356/.380/.423 with seven steals over the last month.
Thu. Sep 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Martinez allowed four runs -- two earned -- and four hits in six innings against the Angels on Thursday. He issued one walk and struck out three.
Impact: Texas has gotten very little from their starting pitching this season, so Martinez was impressive by just tossing a quality start against a strong opponent. The Rangers haven't set their rotation yet for next week, but Martinez is likely to pitch at Oakland in his lone start.
Thu. Sep 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Tepesch was tagged for three runs on 10 hits over 4.2 innings in a losing effort Wednesday.
Impact: The Rangers' rotation plans for the final weeks of the season are murky, but Tepesch could continue to take the ball every fifth day as the organization attempts to assess their plans for him in 2015 and beyond.
Thu. Sep 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Smolinksi (foot) has resumed taking batting practice but has yet to run the bases, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Impact: There's hope that Smolinksi will be able to return this season, though he's clearly running out of time.
Thu. Sep 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Rios (thumb) is scheduled to have his sutures removed and will be reevaluated, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Impact: Rios could presumably be cleared for game action if his infection has healed.
Thu. Sep 11, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Chirinos (neck) could return to the lineup Thursday, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Impact: Chirinos has been catching bullpen sessions in recent days and seems likely to return to the lineup very soon.
Wed. Sep 10, 2014 | STATS
News: Beltre went 3 for 3 with his 18th home run in Tuesday's 9-3 loss to the Angels.
Impact: Beltre is batting .395 over his last 23 games, but it was his first homer since Aug. 10.
Tue. Sep 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Lewis gave up three runs (two earned) on five hits with zero walks and four strikeouts in seven innings Tuesday against the Angels.
Impact: It was an excellent start by Lewis, but in keeping with the lack of fairness this season for the Rangers, he was handed his 13th loss for his efforts. Lewis has managed to steadily lower his ERA since an 11-run outing spiked it to 6.54 in early July, but there's a good chance he'll still finish the season with an ERA north of 5.00, which will make him an extremely cheap option on draft day in 2015. He'll take the mound again Sunday against the Braves.
Tue. Sep 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Chirinos (neck) could return in the next day or two, MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan reports.
Impact: Chirinos has been sidelined since Aug. 28 with a sore neck, but everything checked out during a trip to the doctor Monday, and he is on track to return to the lineup soon.
Tue. Sep 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Beltre will undergo surgery Wednesday to insert a rod in his left leg, Anthony Andro of Fox Sports Southwest reports.
Impact: Beltre sat out up to this point of the season with a broken bone in his right leg, but he is now dealing with a broken bone in his other leg. He is facing another lengthy recovery process, and it remains to be seen if he will be ready for spring training.
Tue. Sep 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Odor is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Angels.
Impact: Odor has started every game but once since August 22, so manager Tim Bogar decided to capitalize on Monday's team off day and give Odor a two-day break. Guilder Rodriguez will get the start at second base in Odor's place.
Tue. Sep 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Andrus is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Angels.
Impact: Andrus will be held out in favor of Luis Sardinas for the second straight day. The Rangers hinted at this happening over the weekend, so don't be surprised if Andrus continues to cede more starts than usual to Sardinas over the season's final few weeks.
Tue. Sep 9, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Chirinos (neck) remains out of the lineup Tuesday against the Angels.
Impact: After Chirinos had trouble throwing prior to Saturday's game, the Rangers scheduled a visit to a doctor to gauge the true extent of his neck issue. The results of his exam have not been made public, but Chirinos is set to miss an eighth straight start Tuesday and a return does not appear imminent.
Mon. Sep 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Ross, who struggled in his most recent start, isn't expected to get a start this week according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
Impact: Ross was terrible against the Mariners in his most recent appearance, and it appears it has cost him a spot in the rotation for at least this week.
Mon. Sep 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Mikolas (shoulder) remains at least a week away from returning to the mound, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Impact: Mikolas is running out of time to make another start before the end of the year, though he hasn't been shut down yet.
Mon. Sep 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Chirinos (neck) was scheduled to see a doctor Sunday after he had trouble throwing prior to Saturday's game, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Impact: A cortisone injection administered Thursday failed to alleviate the pain, which doesn't bode well for Chirinos' status for the week ahead.
Mon. Sep 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Sardinas may get an extended look the final three weeks of the season, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Impact: Sardinas' immediate future with Texas is blocked by Elvis Andrus, Rougned Odor and Jurickson Profar but he'll get ample playing time the final three weeks for those in single-year formats.
Mon. Sep 8, 2014 | RotoWire
News: Andrus, who was held out of Sunday's lineup, could sit in favor of Luis Sardinas more often than Andrus is used to the final three weeks according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Impact: Andrus enters play Monday hitting just .263 with 25 steals, and will begin earning $15 million annually starting next year.
