A.J. Griffin: Non-tendered by Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rangers declined to tender Griffin a contract for 2018.

Griffin got off to a great start last season, posting a 3.15 ERA and 1.02 WHIP over his first six starts, but he missed a large chunk of time with an oblique injury and mostly struggled upon his return in August (6.10 ERA, 1.41 ERA over his final 38.1 innings). Home runs were the big problem, with Griffin serving up a whopping 20 long balls in just 77.1 innings (12 on the road). He figures to have to settle for a minor-league deal in free agency.

Rangers' A.J. Griffin: Rocked in relief Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin was retired one batter and was charged with five runs on five hits and a hit by a pitch in Tuesday's 14-3 loss to the Astros.

Griffin was making his third appearance in relief since being pulled from the rotation in favor of Nick Martinez following his Sept. 10 start. He's given up a total of seven runs in 5.1 innings during those appearances, giving manager Jeff Banister little reason to question his decision to drop Griffin from the rotation. Griffin is set to become a free agent during the offseason and could have to settle for a one-year deal or even a minor-league contract after compiling a 5.94 ERA and 1.34 WHIP across 77.1 frames in 2017.

Rangers' A.J. Griffin: Ousted from rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin won't make his normally scheduled start Friday against the Angels and will instead move to the bullpen, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

Earlier this week, Rangers manager Jeff Banister gave no assurances that Griffin would take the hill Friday after the right-hander submitted another poor outing in his previous turn Sunday against the Yankees, leaving him with a 6.88 ERA and 1.71 WHIP over his last four stars. Sure enough, Banister elected to make a change, calling upon Nick Martinez to join the Rangers as the fifth member of the rotation. Griffin will presumably settle into the long-relief role that Martinez had filled out of the bullpen, which will just about eliminate any fantasy value he might have held in AL-only or deeper mixed leagues.

Rangers' A.J. Griffin: Shelled by Yankees in short outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin (6-6) took the loss Sunday against the Yankees after allowing five runs on five hits with one walk and no strikeouts in three-plus innings.

Griffin failed to get an out in the fourth inning before being chased in what ultimately turned into a six-run frame for the visitors. The right-hander has only managed to pitch more than six innings in one of 15 starts thanks to a combination of control problems and a tendency to get burned by the long ball. He'll look to lower his 3.38 BB/9 and 2.25 HR/9 in Friday's road tilt against the Angels.

Rangers' A.J. Griffin: Draws Sunday start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Griffin will start Sunday's game against the Yankees, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

It will be Griffin's first start since Sept. 2, as he was held out of action for more than a week with manager Jeff Banister opting to reshuffle the rotation following off days Tuesday and Thursday. Griffin has a strong track record against the Yankees during his career -- he's produced a 3-0 record and 2.37 ERA in five starts -- but with none of those outings coming in 2017, it's hard to put much faith in him as a streaming option or DFS selection.
