Rangers' A.J. Griffin: Avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin agreed to a one-year, $2 million contract with the Rangers on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Griffin got off to a strong start last year, going 3-0 with a 2.52 ERA in April, but he went on to post ERAs north of 5.30 in each of the final three months. As things stand now, Griffin appears to have the inside track at the final rotation spot, but he will need to hold his own to fend off some of the younger, higher-upside arms in the organization.

Rangers' A.J. Griffin: Serves up two homers in no-decision against Brewers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin allowed four runs on seven hits and two walks with four strikeouts over 4.1 innings in a no-decision Tuesday against the Brewers.

Griffin has lasted five innings just once in his past four starts, in which he has allowed 17 runs in as many innings. He was undone by a pair of home runs Monday and has now given up seven blasts in that four start stretch. Griffin is averaging just 87.7 mph on his fastball this year and it looks like hitters have figured out his brand of junkballing.

Rangers' A.J. Griffin: Takes no-decision after being shelled Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Griffin lasted just 1.2 innings, allowing three runs on three hits and four walks while striking out one in Tuesday's no-decision versus the Angels.

Griffin may have pitched himself out of the Rangers' playoff rotation with Tuesday's dud, a start in which he threw just 23 of 52 pitches for strikes. Through four games this month, the 28-year-old owns a 7.86 ERA with 11 walks and seven homers allowed over 18.1 innings. The four walks allowed to the Angels on Tuesday were the most Griffin's surrendered since his second start of the season back on Apr. 13. His lack of consistency of late makes him a tough play in any format. The right-hander will draw a favorable matchup when he attempts to rebound Monday against the Brewers.

Rangers' A.J. Griffin: Bombed for eight runs in loss to Mariners
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin (7-4) was thrashed for eight runs on seven hits and three walks in just four innings against the Mariners on Wednesday. He did strike out seven, though.

This was quite the three-true-outcomes day for Griffin, as 13 of the 22 batters he faced homered, walked or struck out. This hasn't been a good season for Griffin by any definition, but it's turning downright ugly toward the end here, as his ERA is slowly climbing toward the 5.00 mark.

Rangers' A.J. Griffin: Manages to pick up another win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin (7-3) held the Astros to three runs on three hits and three walks over 5.2 innings Friday, and struck out five.

A bumpy first inning and the second homer he allowed in the fifth, which ended his start, made what would've otherwise been an even better outing by Griffin. Unfortunately, wins have been the only statistic Griffin has offered value in the 19 games he's started this year. He's sported an average strikeout rate (7.75 K/9) and the rest of his peripherals are quite poor. His next start will be Wednesday at Seattle, a matchup fantasy owners should avoid, if possible. The Mariners have had substantial success against Griffin in his career. In three starts, they've scored 10 runs on 20 hits (four home runs).
