Rangers' Justin Ruggiano: Outrighted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Justin Ruggiano was outrighted to Triple-A Round Rock on Sunday, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

The Texas Rangers had designated Ruggiano for assignment two days earlier in order to make roster room for starting pitcher A.J. Griffin. After finding no suitors interested in either trading for Ruggiano or claiming him off waivers, the Rangers will be able to keep the outfielder in their organization as Triple-A depth.

Rangers' Justin Ruggiano: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Texas Rangers designated Justin Ruggiano for assignment on Friday, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

He was the odd man out when the team needed to add Friday's starter, A.J. Griffin, to the 25-man roster. Ruggiano will need to accept the outright assignment to Triple-A in order to receive the remaining money on his big league contract, so that seems like the most likely scenario. While he has had success hitting lefties, the Rangers' organizational depth will make it difficult for him to carve out a major role in the foreseeable future.

Rangers' Justin Ruggiano: Gets first start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Justin Ruggiano is starting in left field and hitting seventh Wednesday against the Mariners, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

With southpaw Wade Miley on the mound, Ruggiano will get his first start of the year, with Ian Desmond moving to center field. The Texas Rangers have a lot of options, and those options will only increase as the season goes on, but it would not be surprising for Ruggiano to be in the lineup most days against lefties, whom he has a career .856 OPS against.

Rangers' Justin Ruggiano: Makes the big-league squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Justin Ruggiano will be on the Opening Day roster, Jeff Worth of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Ruggiano beat out Drew Stubbs, another right-handed outfielder with significant platoon splits. Given that Ryan Rua also made the team and Josh Hamilton (knee) is expected back in May, it's hard to envision Ruggiano getting more than a few starts per week anytime soon.

Rangers' Justin Ruggiano: Auditioning for first base platoon role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Justin Ruggiano will play first base for the first time in his professional career Sunday in the Texas Rangers ' spring training game against the White Sox, Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News reports.

He has played the outfield for his entire career, but with the signing of Ian Desmond, Ruggiano would not be of much use to the Rangers in that capacity as things currently stand. Only $500,000 of his $1.65 million salary is guaranteed, so if Ruggiano does not prove himself capable at first base, he would likely be left off the Opening Day roster. He has a career .856 OPS against lefties while Mitch Moreland only has a .650 OPS against southpaws for his career, so they could form a dynamic duo at first base for Texas in 2016.
