Rangers' A.J. Griffin: Dominates Yankees in third win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

A.J. Griffin (3-0) allowed just one run on four hits and a walk over eight innings with five strikeouts in a dominant win over the Yankees.

Griffin was the definition of "pitch-to-contact" Tuesday night, as he induced just three swinging strikes and instead kept the Yankees off balance with picture-perfect control and a steady mix of pitches. He threw all three of his off-speed pitches (changeup, slider and curveball) at least 13 times, and all three went for strikes at least 57 percent of the time. The Yankees couldn't lock on to either his fastball (2-for-12 on balls in play) or the off-speed stuff (2-for-9). Griffin has a 2.52 ERA this year despite just 17 strikeouts against nine walks in 25 innings. So far his ability to mix his pitches has kept hitters off guard, but we'll have to see if the league adjusts the second time around. Griffin owns a 3.58 career ERA.

Rangers' A.J. Griffin: Throws another quality start against Astros
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

A.J. Griffin (2-0) allowed two runs on four hits, struck out six and walked two over six innings in a victory over the Astros on Thursday.

The 28-year-old has pitched very well in his first game action since 2013. He did give up a home run Thursday, which was a huge problem for him three years ago, but overall, he has allowed just two bombs over 17 innings. On Thursday, he induced five ground balls versus seven fly balls. Maintaining a ground ball-to-fly ball ratio close to 1.0 will be key for Griffin moving forward. He tossed up 37 homers over 200.0 innings in 2013 with Oakland.

Rangers' A.J. Griffin: Start moved back to Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

A.J. Griffin 's next start was pushed back to Wednesday.

His turn in the rotation would have come up on Tuesday, but with Monday's off day, the Texas Rangers opted to move Cole Hamels up in order to maximize his starts, while also giving Griffin an extra day between outings. This means that Griffin is no longer on tap for two starts next week.

Rangers' A.J. Griffin: Solid second outing
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Griffin (1-0) pitched five innings, allowing two runs (one earned), five hits and four walks while striking out five Wednesday against the Mariners. He did not factor in the decision.

Griffin is filling the gap in the team's rotation left by the injured Yu Darvish (expected back in mid-May). The 29-year-old lefty has been more than serviceable in his two outings. Even when Darvish returns, Griffin should see his fair share of spot starts throughout the year, and may be a nice value in DFS when he draws a favorable matchup.

Rangers' A.J. Griffin: Set for Friday's start against Angels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

A.J. Griffin has officially been added to the 25-man roster in advance of Friday's start against the Angels, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

He won the No. 5 starter spot in camp after having not started a MLB game since 2013. Griffin was a non-roster invitee and could be on a short leash with Chi Chi Gonzalez waiting in the minors and Yu Darvish (elbow) expected to join the rotation in May. That said, there are only a couple danger spots in the Angels' lineup, so this is about as favorable an opponent as Griffin will see in the early going.
