News
Martinez pitched seven innings of one run ball to take a no-decision in Saturday's 2-1 win over the Royals. He allowed four hits and one walk and struck out three.

It was quite the impressive season debut for Martinez, who probably earned himself at least one more start while A.J. Griffin (ankle) remains on the disabled list. However, it bears mentioning that Martinez's strong outing came against an anemic Royals offense that ranks 29th in the MLB with a .265 wOBA. It would be unwise to expect continued excellence from Martinez, who owns a 4.37 ERA and 5.0 K/9 rate for his career.

News
Lucroy is out of the lineup Sunday against the Royals.

It's the third time in five games that the struggling Lucroy will hit the bench in favor of Robinson Chirinos, who will be rewarded with another nod behind the dish after slugging two homers Friday. While it's unlikely that the two catchers will work in a timeshare throughout the season, Lucroy will need to quickly improve his .184/.231/.265 batting line for the season in order to regain his grasp on regular at-bats.

News
Cashner (0-1) pitched six scoreless innings Thursday, allowing just three hits and four walks while striking out three in a no-decision against the Royals.

Cashner impressed the home crowd in his first start as a Ranger in Arlington. His four walks were an eyesore, but the right-hander did a fine job wiggling out of the little trouble he encountered. With runners at first and second base in the first inning, the 30-year-old picked Mike Moustakas off second base and got Eric Hosmer to fly out, ending the biggest threat Cashner faced. Through two starts (11.1 innings), the veteran owns a nifty 2.38 ERA, but also sports a terrible 5:7 K:BB rate that would suggest his ERA is not safe for long. He'll make his next start Wednesday at home against the Twins.

News
Chirinos went 1-for-2 with a solo homer and a walk in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Royals.

Chirinos has only played in seven games this season, but he's returned more fantasy value to date than the more highly-regarded Jonathan Lucroy, as he's gone 7-for-18 at the dish with four homers, nine RBI and seven runs. Lucroy's longer track record of solid production and status as a former All-Star probably won't allow Chirinos to ascend to the top spot on the depth chart, but the two backstops could split starts until Chirinos' bat cools down. The two have alternated starts in the last six games.

News
Andrus will start at shortstop and bat in the cleanup spot Sunday against the Royals.

After recording eight extra-base hits in his first nine games of the season, Andrus has cooled off in the power department, but that won't prevent manager Jeff Banister from giving him a look in the heart of the lineup. Expect Andrus to move back to either the No. 2 or 6 spot in the order during the series opener with the Twins on Monday, when Mike Napoli is expected to reclaim cleanup duties following a one-game rest.

News
DeShields is in the lineup for Friday's game against the Royals, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

DeShields was in the lineup for just three of the Rangers' first 15 games, but he's now set to make his second consecutive start. He will man left field and bat ninth against right-hander Nate Karns with Jurickson Profar taking over for Elvis Andrus at shortstop. DeShields is 2-for-14 at the dish this season and 2-for-3 on stolen base attempts.

Hand - Expected to be out until at least Apr 28 (Updated - 4/17/17)
News
Dyson (hand) threw a scoreless inning for Triple-A Round Rock in his first rehab outing Monday night, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Dyson can come off the disabled list as soon as Thursday, but it remains to be seen how long his rehab assignment will last. The bigger question is whether or not Dyson will slide back into the closer's role upon his return to the big club. Matt Bush has pitched excellently this season (two earned runs, 12:1 K:BB in 7.2 innings) in stark contrast to Dyson's terrible four innings for the Rangers thus far, in which he has already allowed 12 earned runs.

News
Gomez singled in three of his four at-bats during Saturday's 2-1 win over the Royals.

The Rangers' bats couldn't muster much behind Gomez against Royals starter Ian Kennedy, but the former All-Star's performance Saturday should be enough to earn him a little more leash at the top of the order. Gomez is still sporting an average below the Mendoza Line for the season and has yet to contribute much on the basepaths, as he was nabbed in his only steal attempt.

Napoli is out of the lineup Sunday against the Royals.

Napoli was well overdue for a day off after starting in all of the Rangers' first 18 games and struggling while doing so, contributing a .162/.250/.324 batting line. He'll give way to Ryan Rua at first base.

Hamels (1-0) allowed one run on three hits and two walks while striking out three over eight innings in Friday's 6-2 win over the Royals.

Backed by a four-homer barrage, the left-hander cruised to his first win of the season, throwing 71 of 107 pitches for strikes. Hamels will look to build on this momentum in his next start Wednesday at home against the Twins.

News
Darvish improved to 2-2 on the season after giving up two runs on five hits and one walk over eight innings while striking out eight in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Royals.

Darvish surrendered a pair of homers in the third inning, but otherwise kept the Royals bats at bay, retiring 17 batters via strikeout or groundout. While Darvish is still averaging less than a strikeout per inning for the first time in his career, he's throwing with more velocity than he has in any of his previous four seasons, so there's reason to be optimistic that he'll induce more whiffs before long.

Knee - Expected to be out until at least May 1 (Updated - 4/23/17)
News
Nicholas (knee) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A Round Rock on Monday, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Nicholas has seemingly recovered from the knee surgery he required in early March, but after being sidelined for much of spring training, he may need multiple weeks worth of games to get his conditioning in order. Once he's activated from the disabled list, Nicholas will likely remain with Round Rock, as Jonathan Lucroy and Robinson Chirinos are the clear top two catchers in the organization.

News
Griffin (ankle) performed long toss in the outfield Sunday, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

Griffin was placed on the disabled list Friday with left ankle inflammation, but the fact that he's already doing some on-field activity is at least an encouraging sign. Nick Martinez entered the rotation in Griffin's place Saturday against the Royals and tossed seven innings of one-run ball, but Griffin could be ready to go the next time his turn in the rotation comes up April 28 against the Angels.

News
Bush tossed a scoreless ninth inning and struck out one batter en route to his first save of the season in Sunday's 5-2 victory over the Royals.

After picking up the win in relief a night earlier, Bush was able to close the door Sunday in what was the Rangers' first save opportunity since Sam Dyson (hand) was placed on the disabled list and removed from the ninth-inning role. Manager Jeff Banister hasn't suggested that the Rangers will take a committee approach to closing duties, so it appears Bush will see nearly all the save opportunities so long as he's able to avoid any hiccups. Bush should give the Rangers plenty of stability at the back end of the bullpen after following up his impressive rookie campaign with a 2.35 ERA, 0.65 WHIP and 12:1 K:BB ratio through his first 7.2 innings of 2017.

News
Perez (1-3) allowed three runs on six hits while walking three and striking out three over six innings in Monday's 3-2 loss to the Twins.

The left-hander dropped his season ERA to 3.81 in the 96-pitch outing, and he now sports a 19:15 K:BB in 26 innings of work. While Perez's strikeouts are up a bit after five starts, his lack of control makes him a fantasy headache. He's a risky streaming option in deep mixed formats, especially when he takes the hill at his hitter-friendly home ballpark.

Shoulder - Expected to be out until at least May 16 (Updated - 4/17/17)
News
Ross (shoulder) has resumed throwing, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Ross has gone through a long rehab process since undergoing surgery to correct thoracic outlet syndrome in October. It was recently reported that he'd been dealing with back spasms, but he's continued throwing and plans to throw from a mound soon. At this point in time, he expects to be back with the big club at the latter end of May.

Position Breakdown

News
Gallo went 1-for-3 with a solo homer and two runs in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Royals.

Fortunately for the Rangers and fantasy owners, Gallo has been more boom than bust lately, hitting four of his six homers on the season in the last five games. During that span, Gallo has still struck out in 36.8 percent of his plate appearances, so until he refines his approach at the plate, all that power will likely continue to come with the downside of a low batting average. With the Rangers not expecting Adrian Beltre (calf) back until May, Gallo should benefit from at least one more week of everyday at-bats.
