Fantasy Points by Week

    RP Rank
    • White Sox give LHP Torres minor deal

      News: The White Sox signed free agent LHP Joe Torres to a minor league contract Monday.
      Analysis: Torres is nothing more than organizational depth at this point in his career. Ignore him in all Fantasy leagues.
    • Smoak among Rangers' spring cuts

      News: On Thursday, the Rangers assigned RP Elizardo Ramirez, 1B Justin Smoak and RP Joe Torres to their minor-league camp.
      Analysis: Smoak, the organization's first-round pick in 2008, has excellent long-term potential and is a must-have in long-term keeper leagues. Ramirez and Torres might contribute as relievers eventually, but you can pretty much ignore them in Fantasy.
    • Torres walks three, gets pulled

      News: Rangers RP Joe Torres was able to pitch on Friday against the Dodgers despite back spasms, giving up three walks and striking out a batter in 1/3 if an inning of work.
      Analysis: Torres is nothing more than a low-end middle reliever reserved for the deepest of AL-only leagues that use true middle men if he does make it on the active roster this season.
    • Gabbard, Torres not season-ready

      News: From the The Sports Xchange: Two lefty relievers have apparently lost out on jobs before a battle could even develop. LHP Joe Torres (back spasms) has been sore for more than a week, and LHP Kason Gabbard, who pitched in a game environment (albeit a "B" game environment) Friday, is not expected to be at full strength for the start of the season. Gabbard underwent surgery to remove a bone spur last summer.
      Analysis: Gabbard has been moved back to the bullpen after once looking like a viable starter for the Rangers. He and Torres are nothing more than low-end middle relievers for the deepest of AL-only leagues that use true middle men if they get time on the active roster this season.
