Chi Chi Gonzalez gave up five runs on 10 hits and two walks over five frames but escaped with a no-decision in Monday's 9-6 win over the Yankees.

He needed 87 pitches to cover the five innings, striking out just two batters. Gonzalez was up for a start with the Rangers dealing with multiple injuries to their rotation. He could get another shot this weekend in Minnesota but can be ignored for fantasy purposes.

Sam Dyson converted his 16th save of the season with a scoreless ninth inning in Monday's win over the Yankees.

The Rangers plated four runs in the top of the ninth inning after a rain delay of three hours and 35 minutes, resulting in Dyson netting a save around 2:45 am. He's nailed down 16-of-17 save chances this season.

Adrian Beltre drove in the tying and go-ahead run in the top of the ninth inning of Monday's win over the Yankees.

There was a three hour and thirty-five minute rain delay in the top of the frame and when they resumed play Kirby Yates took over for Aroldis Chapman. He allowed two hits and hit three batters, with Beltre pushing two runs across with a single and Elvis Andrus driving in two more to cushion the lead.

Rangers optioned LHP Alex Claudio to Triple-A Round Rock.

The move cleared a spot for Monday's starter, Chi Chi Gonzalez. Claudio has a 4.50 ERA and 11/4 K/BB ratio over 18 innings this season and should get another chance soon.

Rangers recalled RHP Chi Chi Gonzalez from Triple-A Round Rock.

Rodriguez was called up to make his major-league season debut Monday against the Yankees. The 24-year-old had a 5.04 ERA across 14 starts in Triple-A this season and isn't a recommended fantasy option.

Rangers manager Jeff Banister said that Jurickson Profar will likely play first base Tuesday against Yankees left-hander CC Sabathia.

Profar was out of the lineup Monday for the eighth time in the past 11 games. Banister intends to have him play "three or four" times per week, but he clarified that this estimate doesn't necessarily include starts. Profar continues to produce when he gets the opportunity, but the lack of playing time makes it difficult to rely on him in mixed fantasy leagues right now.

Yu Darvish (shoulder, neck) will throw a simulated game on Wednesday.

Darvish threw all of his pitches during a 30-pitch bullpen session on Sunday. It was Darvish's first time on the mound since injuring his neck earlier this month. He'll throw about three innings on Wednesday. The right-hander landed on the disabled list in just his third game back from Tommy John surgery.

Martin Perez held the Red Sox to one run over six innings Sunday in the Rangers' 6-2 win.

Texas had a three-run lead after the first inning and Perez went into cruise control from there, scattering six hits and two walks across six solid frames. The one run he gave up came on a Bryce Brentz solo shot in the top of the sixth. Perez will carry a 7-4 record and 3.44 ERA into his next start on the road against the Twins.

A.J. Griffin gave up two runs on four hits and made it through only 4 1/3 innings for a no-decision on Saturday, striking out six and walking one in the Rangers' 10-3 victory over the Red Sox.

Griffin came off the disabled list today after missing six weeks with shoulder stiffness. That is part of the reason he was lifted early in this game, although he had already thrown 91 pitches. He has been very effective through seven starts. Now with a 3.08 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in 38 innings, Griffin will square off with the Yankees on Thursday.

Ian Desmond connected for his 13th homer on Saturday as his resurgent season rolls on.

Desmond added a single to finish 2-for-5 on the night. Now sporting a .322/.371/.527 slash line with 53 runs, 49 RBI and 13 stolen bases, Desmond is on pace to set career highs in every category across the board. Following last year's terrible results, he is perhaps the biggest draft day steal of the season thus far.

Keone Kela (elbow) will throw another bullpen session on Sunday.

He's about two months removed from minor elbow surgery. Kela said he felt great during Friday's bullpen session and has added a two-seam fastball to his repertoire. The hope is that he joins the Texas bullpen around the All-Star break.

Yu Darvish (shoulder, neck) will throw a bullpen session on Sunday.

This will be his first mound session since being placed on the disabled list with neck and shoulder discomfort earlier this month. If his bullpen session goes well, the next step would be either a simulated game or a rehab assignment. Darvish is 2-0 with a 2.87 ERA in three starts this season. He missed all of last season after undergoing Tommy John surgery.

Rangers placed RHP Colby Lewis on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right lat muscle.

A.J. Griffin (shoulder) was activated in the corresponding roster move. Lewis is expected to miss about two months after his MRI revealed a Grade 2 lat strain. He was off to a good start before the injury with a 6-1 record through 15 starts. Lewis isn't worth stashing in mixed leagues.

Rangers activated RHP A.J. Griffin from the 15-day disabled list.

He'll return to the mound Saturday against Boston after missing six weeks with shoulder stiffness. Griffin's spot in the starting rotation should be pretty safe with Yu Darvish (neck), Colby Lewis (lat) and Derek Holland (shoulder) all sidelined with injuries.
Jun 25 - 6:42 PM

Chi Chi Gonzalez will make his season debut for the Rangers Monday against the Yankees.

Gonzalez will fill the rotation spot left by Colby Lewis, who was just placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained lat. The 24-year-old has had a rocky year in the minor leagues with three wins and a 5.04 ERA in 14 starts for Triple-A Round Rock. Gonzalez won't be a recommended fantasy option when he takes the mound Monday at Yankee Stadium.
