  1. Adrian Beltre the latest star to hit shelf

    Eric Karabell

    A second member of the top 10 in ESPN average live drafts has hit the disabled list, as Los Angeles Dodgers lefty Clayton Kershaw has company in Texas Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre. However, while Beltre was placed on the DL Sunday, i...

  2. Bullpen Report: Who closes in Texas?

    Eric Karabell

    Of the few closer situations that still have some degree of uncertainty, what's happening with the Texas Rangers should be of special interest. After all, the Rangers remain pretty good, having won 90 or more games four consecutive seasons, and simil...

  3. Eric's top 10 fantasy prospects for 2014

    Eric Karabell

    Relying on rookies in fantasy -- in any sport -- is often dangerous. Texas Rangers infielder Jurickson Profar was the hotshot rookie entering spring training a year ago. He was labeled a can't-miss option, and then, despite all the skills and some op...

  4. Bits: Samardzija bests Zimmermann

    Eric Karabell

    It's not terribly uncommon for a pitcher to be among the top 10 in strikeouts and walks in the same season. Texas Rangers right-hander Yu Darvish achieved this distinction last season, Washington Nationals lefty Gio Gonzalez was close, and San Franci...

  5. Is Arian Foster the slam-dunk No. 2 pick?

    Eric Karabell

    We can all agree that Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is the top pick in fantasy football drafts this season. What we apparently cannot agree on for sure is who is second. A month or so ago, I was confidently on board with Houston Texa...

  6. Monday Bits: Examining Rangers' bullpen

    Eric Karabell

    Welcome to the final few days of July. On Wednesday, the last day of the month, there likely will be trades that affect both real baseball and the fantasy version. Some of the players moved will be big names, some will be minor leaguers, and in some ...

  7. Garza a better fit in Chicago than Texas

    Eric Karabell

    I suppose we should congratulate the Texas Rangers for sending prospects to the Chicago Cubs for right-hander Matt Garza, a clear upgrade for their rotation. But from a fantasy aspect, I hardly view it as an upgrade to our teams. While Garza is exper...

  8. Darvish joins long list of aces on DL

    Eric Karabell

    The Texas Rangers don't seem particularly worried about right-hander Yu Darvish, who has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a mild strain in his trapezius muscle in his upper back, so really, fantasy owners shouldn't overreact to the news. ...

  9. Does Manny Ramirez still have relevance?

    Eric Karabell

    On July 22, a few days after play resumes following the All-Star break, the Texas Rangers are scheduled to host the New York Yankees on ESPN. On Wednesday, I discussed Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez being on the mend from hip surgery, and how h...

  10. AL West midpoint report

    Eric Karabell

    We're nearly halfway through the 2013 baseball season, and we've seen some good, some bad and some Josh Hamilton. This week in the KaraBlog, we'll take a look at each team at the midpoint of the season and discuss what has happened and what should ha...

  11. Bits: Nelson Cruz quietly producing

    Eric Karabell

    Texas Rangers outfielder Nelson Cruz fell to the 13th round, on average, in ESPN live drafts prior to this season, which seemed a bit strange, but it made him a nice bargain. Sure, there's outfield depth this season and Cruz has had trouble staying o...

  12. Bits: Kinsler placed on DL, Profar gets call

    Eric Karabell

    The many fantasy owners and Texas Rangers fans who have been waiting all season for the promotion of super-prospect Jurickson Profar finally got their wish Sunday night: He got the call when Ian Kinsler was placed on the DL. But it's premature to ass...

  13. Five things to watch this weekend

    Eric Karabell

    Four of the AL East teams will be facing off head-to-head this mid-May weekend, with the Tampa Bay Rays traveling to Baltimore and the mighty Vernon Wells-led New York Yankees hosting the last-place-but-hot Toronto Blue Jays. The other team is the Bo...

  14. Moreland no longer Rangers' 'weak link'

    Eric Karabell

    A month ago, the focus on Texas Rangers first baseman Mitch Moreland was on how he was the weak link in a strong lineup and should be replaced in the lineup by hotshot prospect Jurickson Profar. Ian Kinsler would slide from second base to first base ...

  15. Can we still believe in Eric Hosmer?

    Eric Karabell

    Heading into Thursday's games, plenty of players with 100 at-bats this season had yet to hit a home run, but the names read like a who's who of powerless singles hitters, from Texas Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus to San Francisco Giants infielder Mar...

  16. Bits: Outlook for rookies Gattis, Grimm

    Eric Karabell

    With so many interesting first-year players to watch this season, it would have been nearly impossible to predict that the top rookies for the month of April, as chosen by MLB, would be Atlanta Braves catcher Evan Gattis and Texas Rangers right-hande...
