J.P. Arencibia drives in seven runs in huge performance
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Rangers first baseman J.P. Arencibia had the game of his career Tuesday, going 4 for 5 with with two doubles, two home runs and seven RBI in his team's 12-11 loss to the Yankees.

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 not an option behind the plate
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

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

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.
