by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiner-Falefa made his 23rd start at catcher Sunday and went 1-for-3 win a 3-1 loss to the Giants.

Kiner-Falefa has managed to keep his average up despite adding the burden of catching chores, like learning hitters, calling games and blocking pitches. He's hitting .280 (26-for-93) since moving behind the plate.

Rangers' Isiah Kiner-Falefa: Has four-game, multi-hit streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiner-Falefa went 3-for-5 with two doubles and three runs scored in Wednesday's 11-7 win over the Mariners. It was his fourth straight multi-hit game.

Kiner-Falefa is running real hot right now, going 15-for-31 (.484) with three doubles, two home runs, six RBI and seven runs scored over the last seven games. This was his 15th start at catcher and he'll continue to operate as the backup catcher for the rest of the season. That means he's expected to qualify for the position next season in most fantasy leagues. Kiner-Falefa is slashing .278/.339/.397 with four home runs and 30 RBI over 81 games.

Rangers' Isiah Kiner-Falefa: Homers in back-to-back games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rangers' Isiah Kiner-Falefa: Triple short of cycle against Astros
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiner-Falela went 4-for-5 with a double, a home run and two RBI in Friday's 11-2 win over the Astros.

His eighth-inning homer off Cionel Perez gave Kiner-Falefa three homers on the year. The rookie utility player continues to surprise, although his .263/.329/.375 slash line on the season limits Kiner-Falefa's value to deeper fantasy formats, even in league where he's gained catcher eligibility.

Rangers' Isiah Kiner-Falefa: Will stay in majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiner-Falefa will remain with the Rangers as the backup catcher and utility infielder, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

The Rangers have a decision to make during the All-Star break about the future of catcher Carlos Perez, who completed a minor-league rehabilitation assignment and who is out of options. Regardless of how the organization handles Perez, it won't affect Kiner-Falefa's spot on the 25-man roster. "He has earned the opportunity to stay here," manager Jeff Banister said of Kiner-Falefa. "He's played well enough to earn that." At the time of Perez's injury, the Rangers opted to have Kiner-Falefa, who had started catching two years ago in the minors, expand his workload. He's made seven starts at catcher and is expected to get another opportunity Sunday.
