Rangers' Ryan Rua: Likely to open season in LF platoon
Calhoun is still expected to be the Rangers' primary left fielder after a month or so, but this at least boosts Rua's value in the short term. The most likely scenario is a platoon with him and the left-handed-hitting Drew Robinson. This would leave Rua on the bench more often than not, though his past success against lefties (.716 OPS versus lefties as opposed to a .652 OPS against righties) suggests he could be useful as a streaming option in deeper leagues that allow for daily roster adjustments.
