Fantasy Impact: Solak has been struggling at the plate as of late after a strong start to the season. He will attempt to regain his confidence before likely being called back up later in the season.


Rangers outfielder Eli White went 0-for-3 with a strikeout against the Tigers on Thursday afternoon. However, he did walk two times along the way. Texas ultimately fell to Detroit by a score of 7-5.

Fantasy Impact: White is now slashing .184/.260/.310 with five homers, 14 RBI, 14 walks, and 56 strikeouts. The slumping 27-year-old has logged just one hit over the last six games and two hits over the last nine contests.

Rangers starter Mike Foltynewicz struggled once again on Thursday, allowing six runs (five earned) and five hits over five innings of work. He surrendered three home runs in the process while walking two batters and striking out four. Folty was hit with the loss as Texas ultimately fell to Detroit by a score of 7-5.

Fantasy Impact: Foltynewicz is now a miserable 2-10 this year, giving him the second-most losses in all of MLB. Through 20 outings, he has amassed a 6.11 ERA, 1.36 WHIP, and .281 OBA while walking 25 batters and striking out 77. Folty's stat line would suggest he's treading on thin ice, but the Rangers might not be able to afford to lose him if they end up trading Kyle Gibson by the end of the month.

His season-long ERA still stands at 2.86, but it appears as if the wheels are finally coming off a bit.
