Alex Rios went 2-for-4 with a double, RBI, a run scored and a walk in the Rangers loss to the Astros on Sunday.

Rios has been playing on and off due to nagging injuries and has probably drove fantasy owners crazy. He was very reliable for a while this season but injuries have hindered his performance as of late. He plays in a Rangers line up that has undergone an extensive amount of injuries, and he should be played in line ups when healthy because he can fill out the entire stat sheet.

Nick Martinez allowed one run on six hits and three walks with four strikeouts over 5.1 innings in a no decision against the Astros on Sunday. 

Martinez labored through 5.1 innings of work today. Martinez should not be trusted in line ups as he has only logged two quality starts in his last ten starts. He has an ugly ERA and should remain on the waiver wire in fantasy leagues. His next start comes next Sunday against the Astros and should not be considered a spot start option.

Robbie Ross tossed five no-hit, scoreless innings against the Astros on Saturday but settled for a no-decision after he was pulled for a high pitch count. He walked three and struck out five.

It's always tough to pull a guy while he's throwing a no-hitter, but Ross was destined to mess this outing up after he threw 70 pitches through five frames with just 38 strikes. Technically this was just a spot-start for him, do he's not scheduled to face anyone in particular just yet.. If he does throw again, it looks like a potential home start against the Mariners.But this outing was likely a major fluke, so we don't recommend him for the future.

Rougned Odor went 2-for-5 with a home run, three RBI and two runs scored as the Rangers beat the Astros 13-6 on Friday.

Odor is known more for his glove than his bat, but he does have two home runs over his last three games.

Scott Baker allowed two earned runs on six hits while walking one and striking out three over 6.1 innings as the Rangers beat the Astros 13-6.

Baker continues to pictch very well with Yu Darvish on the disabled list. At this point Baker has probably pitched well enough to earn himself a roster spot even after Darvish returns.
