A.J. Griffin allowed just three hits and one run over six innings of work in the Rangers 2-1 win over Toronto Monday. Griffin walked two and struck out nine but did not figure in the decision.

Fantasy Impact: Griffin has simply been outstanding for the Rangers since winning the fifth spot in the rotation. He lowered his ERA to 2.32 and has an even 1.00 WHIP to go along with a 3-0 record. He is still only owned in 30% of Yahoo leagues. The big issues is who is the odd man out when Yu Darvish returns. Certainly Griffin has done everything to keep one of the slots in the rotation.

A.J. Griffin ends Rangers skid

A.J. Griffin had his most impressive start of the season, allowing just four hits and one run over eight innings of work in the Rangers' 10-1 win over the Yankees Tuesday. The victory snapped a four-game losing skid for Texas. Griffin walked one and struck out five in improving his season record to 3-0.

Fantasy Impact: Griffin is making an early case for Comeback Player of the Year honors. He lowered his ERA to 2.52 and his WHIP to 1.04. While he's not blowing anyone away with his fastball - just an average of 88 mph - he's spotting it and keeping hitters off balance.

A.J. Griffin allowed just four hits and two runs over 6 1/3 innings of work to lead Texas to a 7-4 win over the Astros and a sweep of their three game series. Griffin walked two and struck out six as he continues in his comeback from Tommy John surgery.

Fantasy Impact: Griffin continues to impress in his comeback. He threw 108 pitches on the night, 71 for strikes and is doing a fine job holding down the fifth spot in the rotation for the Rangers.

A.J. Griffin allowed three runs over six innings to lead the Texas Rangers to a 7-3 win over the Angels Friday. Griffin walked two and struck out one in his first start since September 24, 2013.

Fantasy Impact: The former Oakland A's prospect, who compiled a 21-11 record over two seasons with the A's, missed the last two years with Tommy John surgery. He had his struggles during the spring (1-2, 6.00 ERA), but the Rangers brass wanted to give him the chance to be the fifth starter. The Rangers had to designate Justin Ruggiano for assignment to add Griffin to the roster.
