Texas Rangers

AL West


Hyeon-jong Yang made his first start of the season on Wednesday against the Twins. He went 3.1 innings, allowing one run (a home run) on four hits. Perhaps most brilliant of all, eight of the 10 batters he retired came via the strikeout.

Fantasy Impact: Yang owns a 2.25 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, and .227 OBA through three games (one start) totaling 12 innings. He's walked just two batters and struck out 13. The 33-year-old southpaw is in his debut season and hasn't seen enough action to be fantasy relevant. Still, he is showing that he can be a reliable core member of the Texas bullpen.

Rangers reliever Ian Kennedy refuses to slow down. He threw a scoreless ninth inning on Wednesday, striking out three batters and walking one. The 36-year-old right-hander preserved the Texas lead and earned his ninth save of the season, which ranks second in baseball and first in the American League.

Fantasy Impact: Kennedy owns a 1.93 ERA, 0.79 WHIP, and 1.96 OBA over 16 games. Wednesday's walk was his first of the season; he's also logged 20 strikeouts. He ranks 36th among relievers in the latest rest-of-season expert consensus rankings.

Rangers reliever John King entered out of the bullpen on Wednesday, taking over for Hyeon-Jong Yang in the fourth inning. The southpaw proceeded to allow zero runs on just two hits over 2.2 innings. He struck out three batters and did not walk anyone.

Fantasy Impact: King earned the win as he went the distance and gave the Rangers' lineup time to mount a lead. He's now 3-1 this season with a 1.13 ERA, 1.25 WHIP, and .286 OBA. Through 11 games (16 innings), he's walked just two batters and struck out 11.

Batting ninth and playing center field, Texas' Eli White finished 0-for-4 on Wednesday. He did, however, reach on a fielder's choice. White then stole second base just moments later.

Fantasy Impact: White has struggled to produce this season, slashing .127/.200/.164 with six singles and a triple over 55 at-bats. He's logged four RBI, five walks, 20 strikeouts, and a pair of stolen bsaes.

Batting sixth and serving as the Rangers' left fielder, Willie Calhoun went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Tuesday's win.

Fantasy Impact: Calhoun is now slashing .316/.381/.491 with three home runs, five walks, six RBI, and nine strikeouts over 15 games. He's been a key contributor to the Texas lineup ever since being activated from the 10-day injured list on April 17th.

Rangers outfielder Adolis Garcia excelled at the plate on Tuesday, going 3-for-5 as Texas defeated the Twins. Garcia singled twice and added a go-ahead home run in the top of the 10th inning. He finished with a strikeout and three RBI.

Fantasy Impact: Garcia is now slashing .256/.303/.549 with seven homers over just 21 games. He leads all of baseball in home runs for players with 21 or fewer appearances this season. He has added five walks, 19 RBI, and 28 strikeouts.

Rangers reliever Joely Rodriguez was tasked with pitching the ninth inning of Tuesday's game vs. the Twins and he succeeded, firing two strikeouts and not surrendering a hit or walk. He ultimately earned the win as Texas pulled ahead in the 10th inning.

Rangers starter Kyle Gibson lasted eight innings on Tuesday, allowing three runs on three hits while walking two batters and striking out eight. He gave an incredible effort but ultimately earned a no-decision.

Rangers infielder Brock Holt was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right hamstring strain.

Fantasy Impact: Holt is only relevant in AL-only leagues since he usually serves in a utility-type role. In the past two seasons (2020-2021), he has zero home runs, 14 runs, ten RBI, and three steals with a .223 batting average in 159 plate appearances.

Rangers right fielder Joey Gallo went 2-for-4 against the Twins on Monday. He stroked a single and also launched a two-run home run in the top of the ninth. His blast pulled Texas within one run, but they were unable to capitalize and close this gap. Gallo scored twice but also truck out twice.

Fantasy Impact: The 27-year-old is now slashing .234/.410/.351 with an MLB-most 47 strikeouts and an AL-most 25 walks. It's been such an interesting storyline for the slugger, who has clobbered just three home runs this year after hitting 103 from 2017-19. He ranks 33rd among outfielders in the latest rest-of-season expert consensus rankings.

Rangers starter Dane Dunning allowed three runs (two earned) against the Twins on Monday. He also gave up three hits and a pair of walks while striking out five batters.

Fantasy Impact: Dunning was hit with the loss due to a lack of run support. He is now 1-2 with a 3.81 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and .243 OBA over the course of six starts (28.1 innings) this season. He ranks 69th among starters in the latest rest-of-season expert consensus rankings.

Rangers catcher Jose Trevino went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in Monday's narrow loss to the Twins. He struck out once and stranded two runners in the effort.

Fantasy Impact: Trevino is now slashing .247/.272/.312 with just three walks and 19 strikeouts this season. The 28-year-old opened the season on a tear, hitting .341 over the first 11 games, but he has gone just 4-for-33 since then. He ranks 48th among catchers in the latest rest-of-season expert consensus rankings.

Batting eighth and playing third base, Charlie Culberson went 1-for-4 with an RBI single. He also added a strikeout and stranded three runners in the loss.

Fantasy Impact: Culberson has seen the ball well this season, slashing .314/.340/.529 with two walks, eight RBI, and 15 strikeouts. Still, the 32-year-old doesn't crack the top-500 hitters in the latest expert consensus rankings.

Rangers reliever Kolby Allard allowed three runs on five hits amidst 2.1 innings of work against the Twins on Monday. He also struck out a pair of batters. Allard's effort did not technically contribute to the final outcome as Texas was already trailing when he entered, but since the Rangers lost by one, his three runs were certainly impactful.

Fantasy Impact: Allard owns a 3.65 ERA, 1.05 WHIP, and .240 OBA through six relief appearances (12.1 innings) this year. He has also struck out 17 opponents and walked just one, so he has evidently shown good command.

Rangers reliever Josh Sborz tossed one inning of perfect baseball on Sunday, adding two strikeouts along the way. He was on the mound when Texas took its lead over the Red Sox, so he was credited with the victory.

Fantasy Impact: Sborz is 3-1 with a 3.86 ERA, 0.94 WHIP, and .171 OBA this season. Over 11 games (11.2 innings), he has added four walks and 11 strikeouts. The 27-year-old has now allowed just two runs over his last nine outings.

Rangers second baseman Nick Solak went 0-for-4 with three strikeouts in Sunday's win over the Red Sox. Texas succeeded, but Solak himself struggled, stranding three baserunners along the way.

Fantasy Impact: Solak is now slashing .290/.367/.514 with seven home runs, so it's safe to say the hitless effort didn't hinder his metrics too much. He has added six walks, 15 at-bats, and 36 strikeouts over 29 games this year. The 26-year-old ranks 113th among all hitters in the latest rest-of-season expert consensus rankings.

Rangers starter Mike Foltynewicz allowed two runs on seven hits over six innings of work in Sunday's win over the Red Sox. Although Texas emerged victorious, Foltynewicz himself was hit with the no-decision.

Fantasy Impact: Foltynewicz added one walk and five strikeouts. He is now 1-3 with a 4.32 ERA, 1.29 WHIP, and .271 OBA through six starts. He has walked eight batters and struck out 31 over the course of 33.1 innings. He was impressive on Sunday, but the 29-year-old is not relevant from a fantasy perspective.

Rangers shortstop Isiah Kiner-Falefa went 2-for-3 with a single and solo homer in Sunday's win over the Red Sox. He walked once, drove in one, and scored twice.

Fantasy Impact: Kiner-Falefa is now slashing .277/.317/.454 with five home runs this season, including three over the past four games. He's also drawn five walks, logged 12 RBI, and added 24 strikeouts. The 26-year-old ranks 29th among shortstops in the latest rest-of-season expert consensus rankings.

Rangers first baseman Nate Lowe finished 1-for-4 on Saturday with a two-run single. His hit gave Texas its first lead of the day, and while they fell behind again, they were able to finish ahead, defeating the Red Sox, 8-6.

Fantasy Impact: Lowe is slashing .276/.356/.476 with six home runs, 24 RBI, 12 walks, and 31 strikeouts this season. He has proven to be a key contributor in the Rangers' lineup and ranks 31st among first basemen in the latest rest-of-season expert consensus rankings.

Category: Game Recaps


Rangers starter Jordan Lyles allowed five runs over four innings of work against the Red Sox on Saturday. He also allowed six hits and two walks while striking out three batters.

Fantasy Impact: Lyles is 1-2 with a 7.39 ERA over six starts this season. He notched a no-decision on Saturday after he was bailed out by his offense. His inability to produce reliable, consistent results makes him irrelevant from a fantasy perspective.
