Insight: Rios sprained his ankle in the batter's box and missed three games. He's lacking power this season, batting .303, but his four home runs has to be annoying fantasy owners.

7/20/2014 12:25:00 PM
Description: Rangers right fielder Alex Rios (ankle) is not in Sunday's lineup against the Blue Jays.
Insight: Rios sprained his ankle in the batter's box Saturday night and is day-to-day. With a .179 career average (5-for-28) against Sunday's starter Mark Buehrle, he wouldn't have been a good fantasy option anyway.
 
7/19/2014 1:44:00 PM
Description: Rangers right fielder Alex Rios left Saturday's game in the first inning after injuring his ankle on a foul ball.
Insight: Rios has batted at least .310 in every month except June. He's putting together a solid stat line - .302, 4 HR, 42 RBI, 41 runs, 16 steals. This doesn't appear to be more than a day-to-day injury.

Insight: Rios is putting together an excellent season batting .324 with 3 HR, 32 RBI, 33 runs scored, eight triples and 12 steals. As long as your league doesn't use "net steals" as a category as he's been caught a league-high eight times. This is a matchup to be avoided.
 
Hot5/31/2014 10:09:00 AM
Description: Rangers right fielder Alex Rios is 10-for-19 (.526) against Washington right-hander Doug Fister.
Insight: Rios is hot, batting .385 over the past two weeks to raise his average to .319. Two complains with his performance this season, however. He's hit just three homers after blasting 18 last season and he's been caught stealing a league-leading six times, so if your league uses net steals he's been hurting you more than helping.

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.
