Rangers' A.J. Griffin: Undone by three-run fourth inning in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin (6-4) allowed three runs on six hits with three walks and three strikeouts over five innings in Sunday's loss to the White Sox.

All of Chicago's offense came in the fourth inning, as Griffin allowed five of the first six hitters to reach with a walk, an infield single and a hit batter contributing to the carnage. That one poor inning was all it took to stick the right-hander with a loss, as Texas' normally explosive home offense was kept off the board until the ninth inning. Griffin's still fortunate to have a 6-4 record given his 5.10 ERA in 12 starts, so the lack of run support was due to come at some point. He'll hope for better luck Friday in Oakland.

Rangers' A.J. Griffin: Ekes out win Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin (6-3) picked up the win over the Tigers on Tuesday, allowing only one run on five hits and two walks over five innings while striking out four.

The Rangers gave him plenty of run support, but Griffin needed 93 pitches (59 strikes) just to get through the minimum number of innings necessary to qualify for the win. Since his complete-game shutout of the Padres in early May, the righty has lasted more than five innings just once in six appearances, making him tough to rely on heading into Sunday's home start against the White Sox.

Rangers' A.J. Griffin: Can't keep ball in park Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin (5-3) allowed four runs on four hits -- including three home runs -- and three walks over five innings in Tuesday's 5-4 loss to the Mets. He struck out three.

All the damage came in the first two innings, after which Griffin settled down and gave the Rangers a chance to mount what proved to be a futile comeback. It's the third time in 10 starts this season that the right-hander has surrendered three or more homers, leaving him with a 5.40 ERA and ghastly 2.7 HR/9. He'll be a very risky fantasy play in his next outing Sunday at home against the explosive Astros.

Rangers' A.J. Griffin: Now starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin is now slated to start Tuesday's game against the Mets, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

With Andrew Cashner unable to start due to a sore neck, Griffin will slide up a day to fill in for him, leaving Wednesday's starter to be announced.

Rangers' A.J. Griffin: Picks up win in return from DL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin (5-2) allowed one run on two hits and a walk over six innings during Thursday's win over the Twins. He struck out four.

Griffin looked quite comfortable in his first start off the 60-day DL after missing the past two months with an oblique strain. The 29-year-old faced the minimum in five of his six innings and surrendered his only run on an RBI double by Byron Buxton in the bottom of the third inning. He likely could've pitched deeper into the game but manager Jeff Banister opted to play it safe and removed Griffin from the contest after just 81 pitches. He'll look to build on his success during his upcoming scheduled start against the Mets next Wednesday.
