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

Kiner-Falefa went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in Saturday's 7-3 win over the Astros.

Kiner-Falefa's second-inning shot, his second in as many games, gave the Rangers an early lead. He was the starting catcher Saturday, guiding Ariel Jurado through his second major league start. This was Kiner-Falefa's 11th start at catcher, which may qualify him for the position in some fantasy leagues.

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.

Rangers' Isiah Kiner-Falefa: Starts at third base Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiner-Falefa started at third base and went 0-for-3 with a walk in Monday's 5-0 loss to the Red Sox.

This was Kiner-Falefa's first infield start since the Rangers announced he was becoming the team's primary backup at catcher. He's made six starts since that announcement -- all at catcher. "It's a monumental challenge to do this," Rangers manager Jeff Banister told Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News. "But he has been able to handle all the challenges we've given him. We feel confident he's comfortable enough behind the plate and that he can separate the two. A hybrid player like this can be pretty special. It will be fun to watch." Kiner-Falefa is expected to catch one more game during the series in Boston as he inches toward qualifying as a catcher for the 2019 season.

Rangers' Isiah Kiner-Falefa: Makes fifth start as catcher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kiner-Falefa went 2-for-4 with a run scored, an RBI and a stolen base in Thursday's 7-5 win over the Tigers.

Kiner-Falefa made his fifth start behind the plate for the Rangers and threw out his second would-be base stealer in three attempts. Since adding backup catcher to this portfolio, Kiner-Falefa has started just six of the last 15 games.
