J.P. Arencibia slugs 10th home run in win vs. A's


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/18/2014) Rangers designated hitter J.P. Arencibia went 1 for 4 with a three-run home run in his team's 6-1 victory over the A's Wednesday.

After the Rangers evened the score at 1-1 in the ninth inning, Arencibia put his team up with a big blast over the left field fence. He has a modest four-game hitting streak with two home runs during that stretch. Arencibia has hit .173/.234/.367 with 10 home runs and 35 RBI in 196 at-bats.


J.P. Arencibia might not get a lot of starts in September


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/31/2014) With Ryan Rua expected to see the majority of playing time at first base in September and Jim Adduci close to coming off the disabled list, the Rangers might not have a lot of starts to give J.P. Arencibia down the stretch, according to MLB.com.

"It's obvious what they want to do," Arencibia said. "I get it. They want to look at young guys and see what they can do. I have been around enough. When I came back from Triple-A playing every day, my numbers were there."

Arencibia hit .262 with six home runs and 20 RBI in his first 17 games following his promotion after the All-Star break. Unfortunately, he entered play Sunday mired in a 5-for-50 slump.

"The only thing I can do is come in every day and take it day by day," Arencibia said. "It's out of my hands. I can't dictate what they do with me. That's their decision. When I came back after the All-Star break, you saw the production. When I stopped playing, it made it tougher, that's the bottom line. When I was playing every day, the numbers are the numbers."


J.P. Arencibia falls back into slump with hitless streak


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/14/2014) The tear at the plate for Rangers first baseman J.P. Arencibia has ended in a crash. He is hitless in his last 18 at-bats since opening the Aug. 8 game with a home run.

Arencibia bashed seven home runs during a 19-game stretch after returning from injury. He rose his average from .133 to .198 before his recent slide.


J.P. Arencibia continues power surge Tuesday night


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/6/2014) Rangers designated hitter J.P. Arencibia slammed his sixth tater since his July 18 promotion to help his team clobber the White Sox on Tuesday night.

Arencibia launched a solo job in the fifth inning after having contributed a three-run double in the second that began the rout in earnest. He has 13 hits in his last 40 at-bats to raise his batting average from .136 to .198, its highest point since the second game of the season.


J.P. Arencibia drives in seven runs in huge performance


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Arencibia doubled in the second inning and then knocked in two runs with a double in the third. He homered in his next two at-bats, first hitting a solo shot in the fifth before slugging a grand slam in the seventh inning. He wrapped up his night by striking out to lead off the ninth. Arencibia owns a .183/.223/.404 line after Tuesday's out-of-nowhere explosion, and he has six home runs and 22 RBI in 104 at-bats.


J.P. Arencibia homers in loss Tuesday

J.P. Arencibia not an option behind the plate


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/22/2014) Even with catcher Geovany Soto going on the disabled list again, Rangers manager Ron Washington told the Dallas Morning News he does not plan to play J.P. Arencibia behind the plate.

Arencibia has appeared in three games since joining the team after the All-Star break, all at first base. Washington wants Arencibia to focus on his defense at first base, and does not expect him to be an option at catcher at any point this season. 


J.P. Arencibia a worthwhile second catcher


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/18/2014) The Rangers recalled J.P. Arencibia, heretofore a catcher, from Triple-A Round Rock Wednesday, but not to play catcher. Instead, he's taking over as the team's regular first baseman.

That's bad news for Rangers fans, but as is always the case when a catcher-eligibility player becomes a full-timer at some other position, it's noteworthy in Fantasy.

Catchers -- true catchers -- require regular rest, typically sitting every fourth or fifth game, which causes their totals to lag behind those of full-time players. Conversely, catcher-eligible players who don't require regular rest have an advantage at the position.

The Rangers don't really have anyone else who can play first base. Carlos Pena is gone, and Prince Fielder and Mitch Moreland aren't coming back. Arencibia will get his at-bats. They may be ugly and not yield much better than a .200 batting average, but he'll get them.

So why the enthusiasm? For what Arencibia lacks in every other facet of the game, he can hit the ball out of the ballpark, and in leagues that require two catchers, that's enough to make him startable. Two-catcher leagues are typically Rotisserie, after all, and home runs aren't so easy to find on the waiver wire these days.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
