Player Outlook
Ezequiel Duran emerged as a force for the Rangers and for fantasy managers in the first three months last season, slashing a robust .320/.361/.557 with 12 home runs over 233 plate appearances. The 24-year-old's over-aggressiveness eventually caught up to him, though, as he bottomed out from July on with a .225/.283/.310 line and just two homers in 59 contests. Duran's last start of the regular season came on Sept. 15 and he didn't play in the playoffs during the Rangers' run to the World Series. The poor finish puts Duran's future playing time in a precarious spot, although working in his favor is his ability to play all over the field. Duran has some loud tools, as his 96th percentile max exit velocity and 91st percentile sprint speed can attest. He's been a free swinger since his minor-league days, though, so it's fair to question whether he'll ever make enough contact for those tools to shine through.

  • Rangers' Ezequiel Duran: Heading to Triple-A

    The Rangers optioned Duran to Triple-A Round Rock on Wednesday. Duran had a nice first full season with the Rangers in 2023, slashing .276/.324/.443 with 14 home runs and eight stolen bases. His follow-up in 2024 hasn't been as successful, as he sports just a .256/.294/.324 line with two home runs and one steal over 58 contests. Duran could still play a prominent role with the Rangers later this season, but for now he'll try to get back on track in a less-pressurized environment.

  • Rangers' Ezequiel Duran: Sitting Saturday

    Duran is not in the starting lineup for Saturday's game against the Royals. After starting 11 consecutive games, Duran will be out of the lineup for a second straight contest Saturday. For the month of June, he's slashing .230/.226/.328 with one home run and seven RBI over 61 at-bats. The lefty-hitting Travis Jankowski will serve as the designated hitter Saturday and bat eighth against the returning Michael Wacha.

  • Rangers' Ezequiel Duran: Makes 11th straight start

    Duran started at third base and went 2-for-4 with two runs scored in Tuesday's 7-6 loss to the Mets. Duran was in the starting lineup for the 11th consecutive game and the 17th time in the last 18 contests. He's filled in at first base against left-handers, then helped cover the left side of the infield, where Corey Seager and Josh Smith have battled injuries. Smith returned as the designated hitter Tuesday, which could spell the end of Duran's streak in the starting nine. Eventually, when third baseman Josh Jung (wrist) returns, there will be a reduction in Duran's opportunities.

  • Rangers' Ezequiel Duran: Fills in at shortstop

    Duran started at shortstop and went 1-for-3 with a home run and two RBI in Tuesday's 15-2 loss to the Dodgers. Duran started in place of the injured Corey Seager (hamstring), who missed a fourth consecutive game. Josh Smith has served as the primary fill-in when Seager's been unavailable this season, but Smith was given a break Tuesday. Duran produced a run on a sacrifice fly in the second inning then popped his second home run of the season in the seventh. He has a modest seven-game hit streak (8-for-25, seven RBI) and hit safely in 14 of the previous 16 games. The Rangers maintain that Seager's injury is not serious and are not considering a stint on the IL.

  • Rangers' Ezequiel Duran: Starts at third base

    Duran started at third base and went 2-for-3 an RBI in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Giants. Duran entered the lineup with Corey Seager (hamstring) on the bench. Josh Smith, the primary fill-in for Josh Jung (wrist) at third base, moved to shortstop, paving the way for Duran to make his eighth start of the season at the hot corner. Duran's hit safely in four consecutive games and 11 of the last 13. Seager's injury is not considered serious, but he could need a couple more days, per Kennedi Landry of MLB.com.

  • Rangers' Ezequiel Duran: Helps fill in for injured mate

    Duran entered as a pinch runner for Corey Seager (hamstring) and went 1-for-3 with a run scored in Thursday's 9-1 win over Detroit. He was also picked off/caught stealing. Duran remained in the game to play third base while Josh Smith, the primary third baseman while Josh Jung (wrist) is unavailable, moved to shortstop to cover Seager's spot in the field. Texas manager Bruce Bochy downplayed the injury when speaking to Kennedi Landry of MLB.com following the game. If the injury lingers, the combination of Smith and Duran should handle the left side of the infield. The Rangers are off Thursday.

  • Rangers' Ezequiel Duran: Heading to bench Wednesday

    Duran is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Tigers. Duran had been included in the lineup in each of Texas' last six games, drawing three starts at first base, two at designated hitter and one at second base over that stretch while going 4-for-20 with an RBI and a run. He'll cede his spot in the lineup to Travis Jankowski on Wednesday, but Duran should have a path to steady playing time until the Rangers bring back one of Josh Jung (wrist) or Evan Carter (back) from the injured list.

  • Rangers' Ezequiel Duran: Sitting Saturday

    Duran will sit Saturday versus the Angels. Duran will head to the bench after going 1-for-12 with a walk and four strikeouts over the last four games. Jonah Heim will slot in at designated hitter while Andrew Knizner enters the lineup behind the plate and bats eighth against Los Angeles.

  • Rangers' Ezequiel Duran: Makes third straight start

    Duran started in left field and went 2-for-3 with a run scored in Friday's 4-2 loss to Colorado. Duran made a third consecutive start and has hit in all three, going 6-for-10 with one RBI and three runs scored. He's started in left field and third base during the three-start run, and there will be plenty of opportunities at each position with Wyatt Langford (hamstring) and Josh Jung (wrist) on the injured list. Neither is due back until the end of the month at the earliest.

  • Rangers' Ezequiel Duran: Starts at first base

    Duran started at first base and went 2-for-3 with a run scored in Tuesday's spring game against Oakland. Duran got the start at first after a report earlier in the day indicated the Rangers' preference is to have Duran and Jared Walsh platoon at first base while Nathaniel Lowe (oblique) is on the injured list to start the season. If the Rangers are floating that, it could mean Duran would not be needed to cover shortstop for Corey Seager (groin), who has started swinging a bat and has not been ruled out for Opening Day.

  • Rangers' Ezequiel Duran: Short-side platoon at first base?

    Duran could open the season in the short side of a platoon at first base with Jared Walsh while Nathaniel Lowe (oblique) is out, Jeff Wilson of RangersToday.com reports. Duran might be needed at shortstop instead if Corey Seager (groin) isn't ready, but for now there seems to be optimism Seager can avoid the injured list. The 24-year-old Duran saw action at six different positions for the Rangers in 2023, not including designated hitter, and will fill a utility role again when the rest of the roster is healthy.

  • Rangers' Ezequiel Duran: Steals two bases

    Duran started at third base and went 2-for-3 with an RBI and two stolen bases in Tuesday's spring game against the Mariners. Duran's getting a healthy dose of playing time and leads the Rangers with 26 plate appearances (.360/.385/.480). He's the steady fill-in at third base for Josh Jung (calf), who is due back at some point this month. Duran is expected to be on the Opening Day roster as a backup utility infielder.

  • Rangers' Ezequiel Duran: Joins roster for World Series

    The Rangers added Duran to their World Series roster Tuesday, Kennedi Landry of MLB.com reports. Duran will be added to the roster as a replacement for Adolis Garcia, who suffered an oblique injury on a swing during Game 3. Duran slashed .276/.324/.443 across 439 plate appearances during the regular season, but he has yet to register a plate appearance in the postseason and will likely be used off the bench during the final games of the Fall Classic.

  • Rangers' Ezequiel Duran: Sitting in third straight

    Duran is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Red Sox. Duran is on the bench for the third straight game and is unlikely to recapture an everyday role over the final two weeks of the season after the Rangers activated Josh Jung (thumb) from the 10-day injured list Monday. After getting off to a hot start to the season at the plate, Duran is slashing just .224/.291/.314 with a 29.5 percent strikeout rate since the All-Star break.

  • Rangers' Ezequiel Duran: Absent from lineup again

    Duran is not in the lineup for Monday's tilt versus the Astros. It's the second game in a row that Duran has yielded to Josh Smith at third base. Duran had gone 0-for-11 with four strikeouts in his previous three contests.

  • Rangers' Ezequiel Duran: Gets Sunday off

    Duran is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Twins. Duran will get a maintenance day after he started at third base in each of the past seven games while going 7-for-23 with three walks, four runs and a stolen base. Josh Smith will fill in for Duran at the hot corner Sunday.

  • Rangers' Ezequiel Duran: Takes seat Friday

    Duran is absent from the lineup Friday versus the Brewers. Mitch Garver will fill the DH role and Josh Smith will cover first base as the Rangers take on right-hander Brandon Woodruff. Duran, a right-handed hitter, has done most of his damage against lefties this season.

  • Rangers' Ezequiel Duran: Fighting out of slump

    Duran went 2-for-3 with an RBI, a stolen base and a run scored in Sunday's 3-2 extra-inning loss to the Giants. Duran beat out an infield groundball to short, which enabled J.P. Martinez to score the tying run with two outs in the ninth inning. It was the second straight multi-hit effort for Duran, who is fighting out of a slump. The outfielder/infielder had hit .156 (10-for-64) over 21 games before going 6-for-11 during the three-game series against San Francisco.

  • Rangers' Ezequiel Duran: Homer shy of cycle

    Duran went 3-for-4 with a triple, a double and two RBI in Saturday's 9-3 win over the Giants. Duran also had a sacrifice fly in the contest, but he came up a homer shy of the cycle. He was in the lineup at designated hitter for a second straight game after he was hit on the hand by a pitch Wednesday. Duran should maintain a near-everyday role at least until Jonah Heim (wrist) returns to action, which could push Mitch Garver into the DH spot more frequently. Duran is slashing .282/.328/.483 with 14 home runs, six stolen bases, 42 RBI, 44 runs scored, 18 doubles and two triples over 93 contests.

  • Rangers' Ezequiel Duran: Starts at hot corner

    Duran started at third base and went 0-for-3 in Monday's 5-3 win over Oakland. Duran filled in at third base in the first game following Josh Jung's thumb injury. It was announced Monday that Jung will miss at least six weeks, and Duran is expected to be part of the fill-in solution along with Josh Smith. Duran's .514 OPS in 19 games since the All-Star break, however, stands in stark contrast to a productive first half when he posted an .870 OPS with 12 home runs and 35 RBI in 70 games.
