Mathis went 1-for-4 with a home run, three RBI and a run scored Saturday in the Rangers' 6-1 win over the Astros. Mathis took Brandon Bielak deep to left in the seventh on a full-count fastball to put the Rangers back in front 4-1. The 37-year-old backstop is hitting .161/.221/.355 with three home runs, nine RBI and six runs scored in 24 games this season.
Mathis remains out of the lineup Wednesday against the Diamondbacks. Mathis sits for the second day in a row while Sam Huff picks up another turn behind plate. The two catchers will likely continue to split work over the weekend, when the Rangers conclude their season with a four-game series versus Houston.
Mathis isn't in Tuesday's lineup against the Diamondbacks. Mathis will take a seat once again after going 0-for-4 with a strikeout Monday. Sam Huff will take over behind the plate Tuesday.
Mathis is out of the lineup Sunday against the Angels. Mathis will continue splitting time with Sam Huff behind the plate, with Huff receiving the start Sunday. Mathis has a .160/.232/.320 slash line through 21 games this season.
Mathis will start at catcher and will bat ninth Wednesday against the Astros. Mathis has served as a clear backup catcher with Texas for most of the season, but the deadline-day deal that sent Robinson Chirinos to the Mets coupled with Jose Trevino's (wrist) move to the injured list has allowed the veteran backstop to rise up the depth chart. He'll be getting his fourth start in seven games, as he and youngster Sam Huff have been alternating turns behind the plate. A career .195 hitter with limited pop, Mathis shouldn't be on the fantasy radar, even in most AL-only leagues.
