Rangers' Joey Gallo: Stays in left field
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gallo started in left field and went 3-for-3 with a walk and a run scored in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Athletics.

There was some speculation that Gallo may move to third base to replace the injured Adrian Beltre (hamstring), but manager Jeff Banister kept him left field while Isiah Kiner-Falefa moved from second base to third base. This was Gallo's fifth multi-hit effort over 26 games played. By comparison, he had a total of 18 multi-hit games in 145 games last year. That portends a better batting average in 2018 than the .209 he posted in 2017. His overall batting average (.229) is still lacking, but Gallo is hitting .282 (11-for-39) over the last 12 games with four homers and seven RBI.

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

Kiner-Falefa started at third base in place of the injured Adrian Beltre (hamstring) and went 1-for-3 with a stolen base, an RBI and a run scored in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Athletics.

Kiner-Falefa's been a nice boon to a Rangers' offense that ranks 22nd in batting average and 24th in runs per game. He doesn't offer much in the way of power, but has hit safely in seven of the last eight games to raise his average to .277. Manager Jeff Banister has moved him up in the order as a result of proficiency with a bat. With second baseman Rougned Odor (hamstring) on the verge of coming back -- possibly next week -- Kiner-Falefa's window of at-bats will continue as the third baseman for as long as Beltre is sidelined.

Rangers' Keone Kela: Strikes out two for fourth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kela struck out two in a perfect ninth for his fourth save Wednesday against Oakland.

Kela has responded well to his first and only poor outing of the year April 20 against Seattle, when he served up three runs in a tie game and took the loss. He has four strikeouts and hasn't allowed a run in his two innings since. Kela is perfect in four save opportunities and has lowered his ERA to 3.52 with Wednesday's effort.

Rangers' Doug Fister: Lasts 4.2 innings in no-decision against A's
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Fister allowed two runs on four hits and three walks with three strikeouts over 4.2 innings as he failed to last long enough to earn the win Wednesday against the Athletics.

Fister was coming off the disabled list with a hip injury, so it was a surprise to see the Rangers push him as hard as they did. The Rangers allowed Fister to throw 105 pitches in an effort to qualify for the win, but he just couldn't get that last out. In the end, Fister just couldn't miss enough bats. Athletics hitters whiffed just four times, as they wouldn't chase when Fister tried to nibble. That was the cause of his three walks, including the one to Jed Lowrie that ended his night in the fifth inning. Fister owns a 3.93 ERA, but the 34-year-old's endurance is suspect, as he has a high of just five innings pitched this season and has already required one trip to the disabled list.

Rangers' Tim Lincecum: To continue throwing at extended spring training
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Lincecum (finger) will report to extended spring training over the weekend to continue his throwing program, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Lincecum felt good after tossing an inning of batting practice earlier in the week, so he'll head to Arizona as he continues to ramp up his activity. Barring any setbacks, Lincecum could embark on a minor-league rehab assignment as early as May 6. He's eligible to return from the 60-day DL on May 28.
