Description: Rangers right fielder Alex Rios is hitless in nine career at-bats against Oakland starter Tommy Malone.
Insight: Rios has stuck out four times. He's been good this season, batting .325 with 10 RBI and eight runs scored, but this is an unfavorable matchup.
 
4/16/2014 10:41:00 AM
Description: Rangers right fielder Alex Rios has batted.219 with 12 strikeouts against Felix Hernandez of the Mariners.
Insight: Rios has 32 career at-bats against the M's starter. He's also 3-for-23 over his last six games, so avoid him Wednesday.
 
Hot4/5/2014 10:28:00 AM
Description: Rangers right fielder Alex Rios is a career .407 hitter with six extra base hits and a 1.281 OPS versus Rays left-hander David Price.
Insight: Rios is batting .400 this season and has a favorable matchup.
 
3/31/2014 9:24:00 PM
Description: Rangers right fielder Alex Rios went 3-for-5 with a homer and three RBI on Opening Day.
Insight: Rios has hit .291 with an average of 22 homers, 86 RBI, 88 runs and 32 steals over the past two seasons. He should enjoy hitting in the Rangers' high-octane lineup for a full season after spending 109 of his 156 games with the White Sox last year.
 
3/6/2014 2:26:00 PM
Description: Right fielder Alex Rios has suffered a mild right oblique strain.
Insight: Rios will likely sit out a week or two and could be a little behind when the regular season begins. He's a quiet fantasy star who contributes to all categories (.278, 18 HR, 83 runs, 81 RBI, 42 SB in 2013), but rarely gets a lot of attention.
 
9/30/2013 9:46:00 AM
Description: Right fielder Alex Rios is a career .435 hitter (10-for-23) with two homers and seven RBI against Rays left-hander David Price.
Insight: Rios' OPS was down almost 100 points from the previous season, but in a one-game situation you have to go with the favorable matchup and this is one of them.

Description: Right fielder Alex Rios has been traded to Texas. SOURCE: Dan Hayes, Comcast Sportsnet Chicago
Insight: The White Sox will get a player to be named later. Rios provides the Rangers with a nice mix of power (12 HR) and speed (26 steals). The move will give top prospect Avisail Garcia a chance to see regular at bats in the major leagues.
 
8/8/2013 4:52:00 PM
Description: The Rangers put in a waiver claim for White Sox right fielder Alex Rios on Thursday. SOURCE: Evan Grant, Dallas Morning News
Insight: Texas is desperate for a bat now that Nelson Cruz has been suspended for PED use. We'll see if the White Sox are willing to work out a deal, though at this point it seems unlikely. If the Sox had really wanted to move Rios they probably would have done it before last week's trade deadline.
 
8/3/2013 10:11:00 AM
Description: White Sox outfielder Alex Rios is a career .111 hitter (3-for-27) versus Detroit starter Max Scherzer.
Insight: Rios is batting .272 with 12 HR, 51 RBI and a .753 OPS, but the failure of the White Sox as a team to produce much offensively has hurt Rios' totals. Avoid this matchup.
 
8/2/2013 10:02:00 AM
Description: White Sox outfielder Alex Rios is a career .500 hitter (8-for-16) versus Detroit starter Doug Fister.
Insight: Rios exited Tuesday's game with a bruised foot after fouling a ball off it and was involved in some trade discussions, but his foot is OK and he's still with the White Sox following the trade deadline. He's batting .272 with 12 HR, 50 RBI and a .747 OPS and should be in all fantasy lineups on Friday.
 
7/31/2013 4:31:00 PM
Description: According to Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune, Alex Rios (foot) is in the White Sox lineup Wednesday against Cleveland.
Insight: Rios exited Tuesday's game with a bruised foot after fouling a ball off it and was involved in some trade discussions, but his foot is OK and he's still with the White Sox following the trade deadline.
 
7/30/2013 9:29:00 PM
Description: According to Scott Merkin of MLB.com, White Sox outfielder Alex Rios left Tuesday's game after fouling a ball off his left foot.
Insight: Rios is on the trade block but no deal is imminent by Wednesday's deadline. He's hitting .272 with 12 homers and 22 steals this season, but his OPS is down nearly 100 points from 2012.
 
7/27/2013 9:42:00 AM
Description: White Sox right fielder Alex Rios has managed one hit in 19 at-bats against Royals starter Wade Davis.
Insight: Davis has a strong case for baseball's worst pitcher this season -- he's 4-9 with a 5.92 ERA and a major-league worst 29.7 percent line-drive rate, so fantasy owners might want to roll the dice with Rios Saturday.
 
7/22/2013 10:05:00 AM
Description: White Sox right fielder Alex Rios is just 3-for-24 (.125) against Detroit ace Max Scherzer.
Insight: Rios is batting .371 over the past two weeks, but this is historically a tough matchup for him as he's struck out eight times, or a third of the time.
 
Hot7/20/2013 8:07:00 PM
Description: White Sox right fielder Alex Rios looked sharp Saturday against Atlanta.
Insight: Rios smashed three hits, including his 12th home run of the season. He's driven in seven runs in his last two contests.
 
7/14/2013 4:11:00 PM
Description: The Pirates are hoping to acquire White Sox right fielder Alex Rios before the trade deadline. SOURCE: Phil Rogers, Chicago Tribune
Insight: Rios probably wouldn't come cheap but he'd be a massive upgrade over the Pirates' current right fielder, Travis Snider (.226, 3 HR, 22 RBI in 86 games). A ten-year veteran, Rios (.270, 11 HR, 40 RBI, 15 SB) has never played for a National League club. He's also never been to the postseason, which would certainly be a possibility if the White Sox traded him to Pittsburgh.
 
7/9/2013 10:55:00 PM
Description: White Sox right fielder Alex Rios went 6-for-6 with a triple and two RBI Tuesday at Detroit.
Insight: It's not often you see a team pound out 23 hits and 11 runs in a game Justin Verlander starts, but that's what the White Sox did Tuesday. Rios raised his average 14 points with the effort.
 
Cold7/7/2013 11:38:00 AM
Description: White Sox right fielder Alex Rios has monster numbers against Rays ace David Price.
Insight: Somehow, Rios is a .474 career hitter against last season's Cy Young award winner. Maybe facing Price on Sunday will help Rios get back on track after falling into a 6-for-39 (.154) slump in his last ten games.
 
Cold7/6/2013 10:45:00 AM
Description: Chicago right fielder Alex Rios is 1-for-8 against Tampa Bay left-hander Matt Moore and the other seven times he struck out.
Insight: Given Rios' recent struggles -- he's 7-for-38 (.184) over the past 10 games -- playing him Saturday is a tough sell.
 
Cold6/30/2013 10:02:00 AM
Description: Chicago right fielder Alex Rios has gone 9-for-40 (.225) against Cleveland's Justin Masterson.
Insight: Given Rios' recent struggles -- he's 1-for-16 (.063) over his last four games and 9-for-52 (.173) over his last 14 -- playing him Sunday against Masterson doesn't seem like a good idea.
