Description: Rangers C/1B J.P. Arencibia has raised his batting average from .152 to .198 by going 9-for-22 (.409) in his last six games and has earned a prime spot in the batting order Friday night - third.
Insight: Arencibia has doubled three times, homered three times and driven in 11 runs during that span. With Alex Rios sidelined, he's been moved into the No. 3 hole.
 
Hot8/6/2014 12:18:00 PM
Description: Rangers C/1B J.P. Arencibia has raised his batting average from .152 to .198 by going 9-for-22 (.409) in his last six games.
Insight: Arencibia has doubled three times, homered three times and driven in 11 runs during that span, but he strikes out too much to keep up any sort of hot streak.
 
Hot7/30/2014 12:39:00 PM
Description: Rangers C/1B J.P. Arencibia went 4-for-5 with two doubles, two homers and seven RBI Tuesday against the Yankees and he has a good matchup Wednesday against Hiroki Kuroda.

Cold5/22/2014 10:12:00 PM
Description: The Rangers have sent catcher J.P. Arencibia down to Triple-A Round Rock.

3/24/2014 12:22:00 PM
Description: Rangers backup catcher J.P. Arencibia will have to do a majority of the work behind the plate for the next 2-3 months with Geovany Soto sidelined by a torn lateral meniscus.

12/6/2013 1:36:00 PM
Description: J.P. Arencibia has signed a one-year, $1.8 million deal with Texas.
Insight: Arencibia's power should play well in Texas but he's not going to be a factor in fantasy as Geovany Soto is set to be the team's starter behind the plate.
 
9/19/2013 10:44:00 AM
Description: Blue Jays catcher J.P. Arencibia will enter Thursday's game against the Yankees with nine hits in 21 career at-bats against Hiroki Kuroda.

8/26/2013 11:45:00 AM
Description: Monday would be a good day for Toronto catcher J.P. Arencibia to get a rest as he's 1-for-14 with seven strikeouts in his matchups against Yankees starter Phil Hughes.
Insight: Arencibia is three long balls away from his career high (23 in 2011), but continues to hit for a low average (.214) and strike out at a poor rate (125 in 418 plate appearances).
 
8/9/2013 10:15:00 AM
Description: Toronto catcher J.P. Arencibia is a late scratch for Wednesday's game with Seattle due to a sore right knee and is questionable for Friday's game against Oakland.
Insight: Arencibia is having a pretty typical season, hitting for good power (17 HR) but with lots of strikeouts (111 whiffs in 355 at bats). Josh Thole has started the last three games, but has little-to-no fantasy value.
 
8/7/2013 4:03:00 PM

Insight: Arencibia is batting .221 with 16 homers, 42 RBI and a .675 OPS. His 98/13 K/BB makes him nearly unplayable for fantasy owners except during the occasional hot streak. Friday doesn't figure to be one of them.
 
7/6/2013 12:05:00 PM
Description: Blue Jays catcher J.P. Arencibia is not in the starting lineup for Saturday's game with Minnesota. No injury, just regular rest for a catcher on a day game following a night game.

Description: Blue Jays catcher J.P. Arencibia went 2-for-5 with a homer and four RBI Thursday against Baltimore.
