Lisalverto Bonilla seems to be in line to start on Friday in place of Scoot Baker.

Bonilla took Baker's place in the rotation when Baker had his last start scratched. Bonillo pitched well enough to log a quality start but had control issues as he walked four batters in six innings. Leave Bonilla off your roster.

Scott Baker (triceps tendinitis) doesn't look like he'll be ready to make his next start Friday.

This is something the Rangers have become quite accustomed to, players being injured and missing time. Baker was scratched from his start this past Saturday and will now miss another one. With the season dwindling down and the Rangers being buried so far down in the standings, it could result in them just shutting Baker down. Consider him day-to-day for the moment and do not consider him for your fantasy roster.

Jake Smolinksi (foot) will travel with the team to Oakland and is expected to be healthy enough to return to the lineup.

Smolinski only has value if he is getting regular playing time. If he is only going to see a small handful of at-bats each week, then he's simply not worth owning.

Michael Choice went 2-for-3 with a triple, double and three RBI in the Rangers victory against the Braves on Sunday. 

Choice was having a great game at the plate until he had to be carried off the field after pulling up lame en route to his double. Choice could miss some time, and should be in your league's free agent pool.

Luis Sardinas went 3-for-4 with two doubles, four RBI and two runs scored in the Rangers win against the Braves on Sunday. 

Sardinas should continue to see fairly regular playing time moving forward. While you can't expect an offensive output like this on a regular basis, he does have a nice speed element to his game that should help you in the runs scored department.

Colby Lewis improved to 10-13 after allowing one run on five hits and a walk with two strikeouts over seven innings in a win against the Braves on Sunday. 

Lewis pitched extremely well today and was rewarded with his 10th win. Even though he only struck out two batters, he only let up five hits to go with one walk. A scary thought is that today's great outing lowered his ERA to 5.12. Lewis should remain on your league's waiver wire has he is too inconsistent to trust with a spot.

 Michael Choice was carried off the field after he pulled up lame with a strained left hamstring on his way to second base on his two-run double in the fifth inning Sunday.

Choice had two hits on the day but it was unfortunate that he had to be carried off the field. Hamstring injuries are detrimental to baseball players, and this could keep Choice off the field for some extended time. However, Choice should not have been on any fantasy roster so this injury is irrelevant in the fantasy realm.

Rougned Odor went 1-for-3 with a double and two RBI during the Rangers' 3-2 win over the Braves on Saturday.

While Odor's numbers aren't especially impressive this season (eight home runs, 38 RBI's, and a .253average with two stolen bases), he's done very well considering he's a 20 year old in his rookie year. His successful year should give the Rangers confidence to provide him with starts next year, though it will be interesting to see where he plays with Profar returning.

Neal Cotts picked up his first save after he threw a scoreless inning to close out the Rangers' 3-2 win over the Braves on Saturday. He allowed one hit and struck out one.

Cotts has had a rough year, with a 4.26 ERA, but he was solid on Saturday while giving Feliz a break. He may get the occasional save for the remainder of the season to help save Feliz's arm, but he'll likely stick to a 7th or 8th inning role generally.
