Rangers' Austin Bibens-Dirkx: Picks up first win with 6.2 strong innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bibens-Dirkx (1-1) allowed one run on five hits and a walk through 6.2 innings in a win Wednesday over the Royals.

Bibens-Dirkx gave up a lofty 12 flyballs but still managed to keep the ball in the ballpark as the Royals mustered just two extra-base hits against him. That will be the main thing to watch with Bibens-Dirkx, as his 4.67 ERA in 24 games (six starts) in 2017 can largely be pinned on a brutal 1.8 HR/9. All the Rangers really need right now, though, is somebody who can eat innings, and Bibens-Dirkx most likely did enough to hold onto the rotation spot for at least another turn. If so, his next start will come Tuesday against San Diego.

Rangers' Austin Bibens-Dirkx: Recalled from Round Rock, set to start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bibens-Dirkx was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock and is scheduled to start Wednesday against the Royals.

Bibens-Dirkx is set to rejoin the big-league rotation in place of Yohander Mendez, who was banished to the minors after violating team rules. The 33-year-old has made two starts for the Rangers this season, allowing a brutal 10 runs (eight earned) on 17 hits in just 11 innings of work. It's unclear if he'll stick in the rotation beyond Wednesday's outing.

Rangers' Austin Bibens-Dirkx: Optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bibens-Dirkx was sent to Triple-A Round Rock on Wednesday, John Blake of the Texas Rangers reports.

Bibens-Dirkx made two starts for the Rangers in his first major-league stint of the season, posting a disappointing 6.55 ERA and 1.64 WHIP with 11 strikeouts over 11 innings. Matt Moore has been reinstated from the disabled list in a corresponding move.

Rangers' Austin Bibens-Dirkx: Roughed up early in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bibens-Dirkx allowed four runs on nine hits over 4.2 innings in Tuesday's 9-5 win over the Mariners. He struck out five and didn't walk a batter.

The Rangers handed Bibens-Dirkx an early 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning, but he immediately gave that back and more, as the first four Mariners reached base safely, including Mitch Haniger's two-run double. He had to deal with baserunners during every inning he pitched. This was his second start during this call-up, and likely last for now, as a fill-in for Matt Moore (knee), who will return to start Wednesday. Moore, who has an 8.19 ERA over nine starts and averaged less than five innings per start, may be pitching for his spot in the rotation Wednesday. In the event he continues to struggle and manager Jeff Banister wants to make a move, Bibens-Dirkx could be back.

Rangers' Austin Bibens-Dirkx: Will earn another start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bibens-Dirkx will remain in the rotation for one more turn and start Tuesday against the Mariners, Dic Humphrey of MLB.com reports.

The Rangers could have moved Bibens-Dirkx to the bullpen or sent him to Triple-A Round Rock with Matt Moore (knee) set to return from the disabled list this week, but manager Jeff Banister instead elected to keep Bibens-Dirkx in the rotation a little longer to afford an additional day of rest to each of the team's five starters. While Bibens-Dirkx wasn't outstanding in his spot start Thursday against the Royals -- he allowed six runs (four earned) and struck out six over 6.1 innings --the performance was good enough for the Rangers to justify handing him another start. Bibens-Dirkx will probably need an even better showing Tuesday to earn himself any additional starting assignments now that the team has five healthy rotation members.
