|Rangers to consider deals for 'core-type' players |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(6/25/14) The Rangers will consider what their "core-type" players will bring back in a trade, according to the Dallas Morning News.
Realistically, the leaves Elvis Andrus and Alex Rios are the most likely to be moved. The team could also see what Adrian Beltre will bring back in a potential deal. Both Andrus and Beltre are owed a significant amount of money going forward, and it's possible the team would have to cover some salary in deals for either player. General manager Jon Daniels said the team is in a position to make some deals, but hedged by saying "there is no rule you have to make a major change before the deadline."
|Alex Rios, Michael Choice ejected for arguing balls and strikes |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(6/22/14) The Rangers were unhappy with the work of home plate umpire Vic Carapazza Saturday, as two players were tossed from the team's game against the Angels.
Designated hitter Alex Rios was ejected in the fourth inning and outfielder Michael Choice followed his lead in the 10th. Both players were tossed for arguing balls and strikes, though Choice's came after he struck out looking.
|Alex Rios keeps racking up multi-hit games |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(5/25/14) Rangers outfielder Alex Rios went 2 for 6 with three RBI during Sunday's 12-4 win at Detroit. Rios had an RBI single in the first inning and added a two-RBI triple in a five-run fifth inning.
Rios has produced multi-hit games in five straight appearances and has hit safely in eight straight games. He is batting .389 (14 for 36) with two triples, two doubles and eight RBI during his hitting streak.
|Collision, head injury has Daniel Robertson out of game |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(5/22/14) A collision with teammate Alex Rios has knocked Rangers outfielder Daniel Robertson out of the Thursday game against Detroit. He was hurt while diving for a ball when Rios nailed him in the head trying to make the play.
Robertson managed his third hit in 20 at-bats this season with a single to lead off the game.
|Alex Rios knocks solo home run in loss Wednesday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(5/15/14) Rangers outfielder Alex Rios went 1 for 4 with a solo home run in his team's 5-4 loss to the Astros Wednesday.
Rios kicked off the scoring with a second-inning home run, but he wasn't able to do anything over the remainder of the game. He has hit .306/.343/.459 with three home runs, 21 RBI and seven stolen bases in 157 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.
