Rangers' Austin Bibens-Dirkx: Roughed up in long relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bibens-Dirkx surrendered two runs on six hits and two walks over 2.1 innings of relief in Tuesday's 12-1 loss to the Orioles. He struck out three batters.

The 32-year-old rookie was making his first appearance since June 30, when he was still a member of the Rangers' rotation. With the returns of Martin Perez and Andrew Cashner from the disabled list shortly before the All-Star break, Bibens-Dirkx is expected to work in a mop-up role out of the bullpen going forward, which will likely make his workload highly variable from week to week.

Rangers' Austin Bibens-Dirkx: Likely headed back to bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

With Yu Darvish expected to start Sunday against the Angels, Bibens-Dirkx will presumably move back to the bullpen and remain in a relief role for the foreseeable future, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Bibens-Dirkx had been a candidate to start Wednesday against the Red Sox, but his services weren't needed after Andrew Cashner (forearm) was cleared to make the turn. With Cashner coming out of the start in sound condition and the Rangers listing Cole Hamels, Tyson Ross and Darvish as their probable starters for their series with the Angels in the team's final three games before the All-Star break, there won't have a need for Bibens-Dirkx in the rotation going forward, barring another starter succumbing to an injury. Bibens-Dirkx will likely assume the long-relief role that had previously fallen to Nick Martinez, who was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on Thursday.

Rangers' Austin Bibens-Dirkx: Wednesday's scheduled start in flux
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bibens-Dirkx could be replaced in the rotation in advance of his next scheduled start for Wednesday's game against Boston, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

There are a bunch of moving parts involved in the rotation, but this will hinge upon the availability of Martin Perez, who is currently on the DL with a thumb injury. In the event that Perez is activated off the disabled list, he could throw for the series opener Monday with Yu Darvish toeing the rubber Tuesday. This would present a dilemma with Andrew Cashner (currently day-to-day with a forearm injury) and Bibens-Dirkx, as one of the two pitchers would start Wednesday while the other essentially misses a start. The Rangers haven't announced anything as of yet, but are likely to address the situation as soon as possible.

Rangers' Austin Bibens-Dirkx: Serves up three homers Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bibens-Dirkx gave up four runs on eight hits -- including three home runs -- while striking out two over 5.2 innings Friday but came away with a no-decision in an 8-7 loss to the White Sox.

Despite his inability to keep the ball in the park, Bibens-Dirkx was in line for the win before Matt Bush blew another save. The 32-year-old rookie is expected to make one more start before the All-Star break Wednesday at home against the Red Sox, but will likely lose his spot in the rotation soon afterwards.

Rangers' Austin Bibens-Dirkx: Receives Friday start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bibens-Dirkx will start Friday's series opener with the White Sox.

With Andrew Cashner (oblique) receiving clearance to come off the disabled list for a start Thursday against the Indians, the Rangers will bump Nick Martinez to the bullpen to keep Bibens-Dirkx in the rotation as the team's fifth starter. Bibens-Dirkx certainly earned the nod after covering seven innings and giving up one run in his past outing Saturday against the Yankees, but his stay in the rotation may not last much longer with Martin Perez (thumb) seemingly on track to come off the DL next week.
