Report: Rangers decline option on OF Alex Rios
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(10/15/14) What was previously reported has apparently played out - the Rangers have declined the team option on outfielder Alex Rios, per CBSSports.com MLB Insider Jon Heyman.
Rios proved highly disappointing during an injury ravaged season for his team in 2014. He managed a respectable stat line of .280/.311/.398, but he slugged just four home runs, none after July 6. He scored a career-low 54 runs and also drove in 54, his second-lowest total.
He will now try to maximize his potential in free agency.
Report: Rangers to allow Alex Rios to test free agency
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(10/8/14) The Rangers are expected to decline their 2015 option on outfielder Alex Rios, who experienced a stunning power outage this year, per MLBDailyDish.com. The move will save them $13.5 million.
Rios managed a stat line of .280/.311/.398, but compiled just 54 RBI in 492 at-bats. He did not homer after July 6 and finished the season with four. Rios lost the last month to a thumb injury.
Alex Rios' season is over
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
|(9/21/14) The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that Rangers outfielder Alex Rios has been shut down for the remainder of the season. Rios has been out since Sept. 4 with an infected thumb.
Rios played 131 games for Texas this season and hit .280 with four home runs, 54 RBI, 54 runs and 17 stolen bases.
'Increasingly likely' Rangers part ways with Alex Rios
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/17/14) Rangers outfielder Alex Rios "most likely" won't be back with the team next season, MLB.com reports.
The Rangers hold a $14-million option on Rios for 2015, but "it appears increasingly likely" the team will instead pay the $1-million buyout. Shin-Soo Choo is expected to shift to Rios' position next season.
"I'm just waiting to see what will happen," Rios said. "The team has to make the decision. You don't know if they are going to try going the free-agent route or go with a farm product. It's tough to tell."
Rios is questionable to play again this season due to a thumb injury.
Alex Rios out a week due to a thumb injury
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(9/5/14) Rangers outfielder Alex Rios will be sidelined for a week with a thumb infection, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
Rios will be out for one week due to the injury. He's been bothered by the injury for some time now. Rios is hitting .280/.311/.398 over 492 at-bats.
|Alex Rios' most remarkable feat in 2013 wasn't his career-high 42 stolen bases at age 32, but the fact he remained a plus Fantasy contributor for a second straight year. Granted, he's had his high points over the course of his 10-year career, but the last time he followed up one good season with another was 2008. So would a third straight be pushing his luck? Hard to say. He's always had horrible plate discipline, which gives him a thin margin for error, and generally speaking, career highs achieved after the age of 30 aren't likely to be repeated. But he was so effective stealing bases last year -- particularly after joining the Rangers, when he succeeded in 16 of 17 attempts -- that you have to believe he'll be free to run as often as he wants. And even if his batting average dips a bit, he's still a good bet for 15 homers. A 15-30 player, no matter what he hits, matters in Fantasy, and the upside for Rios, as we saw last year, is far greater than that. He's a potential top-10 outfielder with a chance of falling outside the top 25 on Draft Day because of his year-to-year inconsistencies.
