5/25/2017 Nick Martínez, Tex, P
Nick Martinez fell to 1-3, allowing four runs on seven hits and two walks in 5.0 innings, as the Texas Rangers lost to the Boston Red Sox 6-2 on Thursday. Martinez struck out four, ending the game with a 4.69 ERA and 1.31 WHIP on the season.

Analysis: Martinez had pitched well in each of his last two outings and wasn't all that bad in this one, as he was hurt mostly by giving up a two-run homer to Xander Bogaerts. Still, he's recorded only one win over his last 13 starts dating back to August 2015 and remains a low-end option for fantasy purposes.
5/25/2017 Drew Pomeranz, Bos, P
Drew Pomeranz improved to 4-3, allowing two runs on four hits and one walk in 6.0 innings, as the Boston Red Sox defeated the Texas Rangers 6-2 on Thursday. Pomeranz struck out 11, ending the game with a 4.70 ERA and 1.39 WHIP on the season.

Analysis: The 11 strikeouts matched a career high for Pomeranz, who's now fanned 56 hitters in 44 innings of work. He's still a bit of a fantasy risk, though, as he had failed to last beyond four innings in any of his three previous start and was 0-2 with a 7.36 ERA during that stretch.
5/25/2017 Craig Kimbrel, Bos, P
Craig Kimbrel did not allow a hit or walk in 1.0 scoreless inning as the Boston Red Sox defeated the Texas Rangers 6-2 on Thursday. Kimbrel struck out four, ending the game with a 0.87 ERA and 0.39 WHIP on the season.
5/25/2017 Andrew Benintendi, Bos, LF
Andrew Benintendi went 1 for 3 with an RBI Thursday as the Boston Red Sox beat the Texas Rangers 6-2. Benintendi scored once and stole a base. He ended the game with a .288 batting average.

Analysis: Benintendi went through an 0-for-26 slump earlier this month but is back to swinging it well. The early Rookie of the Year candidate is 5 for 12 with three RBIs during a four-game stretch in which he's scored a run in each contest.
5/25/2017 Mookie Betts, Bos, RF
Mookie Betts went 1 for 4 Thursday as the Boston Red Sox topped the Texas Rangers 6-2. Betts added a stolen base. He ended the game with a .286 batting average.
5/25/2017 Rougned Odor, Tex, 2B
Rougned Odor went 1 for 4 Thursday as the Texas Rangers fell to the Boston Red Sox 6-2. He ended the game with a .207 batting average.
5/25/2017 Elvis Andrus, Tex, SS
Elvis Andrus went 1 for 4 with a home run and an RBI Thursday as the Texas Rangers lost to the Boston Red Sox 6-2. The homer was his sixth of the season. He ended the game with a .270 batting average.

Analysis: After surprisingly reaching five homers by early May, Andrus had gone 18 games without one before connecting in the fourth inning. He's still not having a good road trip, having gone 4 for 23 (.174) through Texas' first six games of the trek.
5/25/2017 Xander Bogaerts, Bos, SS
Xander Bogaerts went 2 for 4 with a home run and two RBIs Thursday as the Boston Red Sox topped the Texas Rangers 6-2. The homer was his first of the season. Bogaerts scored twice and stole a base. He ended the game with a .335 batting average.

Analysis: The standout shortstop finally put one in the seats and finished the three-game series 7 for 14 with five RBIs and seven runs scored. Bogaerts is now hitting a torrid .415 (17 for 41) with eight RBIs and 12 runs scored in his last 11 games at Fenway Park.
5/25/2017 Dustin Pedroia, Bos, 2B
Pedroia went 0 for 2 with a run scored before leaving Thursday's 6-2 win over the Rangers after five innings with a sore left knee. He ended the game with a .288 batting average.

Analysis: Pedroia's removal was believed to be precautionary, though there's a chance he may be held out of Friday's game against Seattle. It's a situation fantasy owners will need to monitor.
5/25/2017 Mike Napoli, Tex, 1B
Mike Napoli went 0 for 4 Thursday as the Texas Rangers lost to the Boston Red Sox 6-2. He ended the game with a .193 batting average.
5/25/2017 Nomar Mazara, Tex, RF
Nomar Mazara went 2 for 4 with an RBI Thursday as the Texas Rangers lost to the Boston Red Sox 6-2. He ended the game with a .274 batting average.

Analysis: After having an 11-game hitting streak snapped in a pinch-hit appearance on Wednesday, Mazara went back to stinging the ball like he's done for the past two weeks. The 22-year-old is 15 for 36 (.417) with nine RBIs and a 1.169 OPS over his last 10 outings.
5/25/2017 Jonathan Lucroy, Tex, C
Jonathan Lucroy went 0 for 4 Thursday as the Texas Rangers lost to the Boston Red Sox 6-2. He ended the game with a .260 batting average.

Analysis: Lucroy ended the three-game series 1 for 12 and continues to struggle on the road, where he's hitting just .219 compared to a .310 average at Globe Life Park. The Texas catcher is 3 for 7 with a home run lifetime off Mike Bolsinger, who'll take the mound for Toronto for Friday's series opener against the Rangers.
5/25/2017 Mitch Moreland, Bos, 1B
Mitch Moreland went 2 for 3 with an RBI Thursday as the Boston Red Sox beat the Texas Rangers 6-2. He ended the game with a .273 batting average.

Analysis: The former Ranger went 6 for 9 against his ex-team for the series and has now knocked in at least one run in six consecutive games. Moreland is also on seven-game hitting streak in which he's 11 for 28 (.393) with three homers, nine RBIs and seven runs scored.
5/25/2017 Joey Gallo, Tex, 3B
Joey Gallo went 0 for 3 Thursday as the Texas Rangers fell to the Boston Red Sox 6-2. He ended the game with a .191 batting average.
5/25/2017 Delino DeShields, Tex, CF
Delino DeShields went 0 for 3 Thursday as the Texas Rangers fell to the Boston Red Sox 6-2. DeShields scored once and stole a base. He ended the game with a .287 batting average.
5/25/2017 Christian Vázquez, Bos, C

5/25/2017 Jackie Bradley Jr., Bos, CF

5/25/2017 Hanley Ramírez, Bos, 1B

5/25/2017 Deven Marrero, Bos, 3B
Deven Marrero went 1 for 4 with a home run and two RBIs Thursday as the Boston Red Sox topped the Texas Rangers 6-2. The homer was his first of the season. He ended the game with a .178 batting average.

Analysis: Marrero has now hit safely in four straight games filling in for an injured Pablo Sandoval, going 4 for 14 with four RBIs and four runs scored during that period. Unfortunately, he's likely headed back to Triple A once Sandoval returns, which could be as soon as Friday.
5/25/2017 Luis Avilán, LAD, P
Avilan (sore left triceps) was placed on the 10-day DL on Thursday.

Analysis: Avilan leads the Dodgers with 23 appearances while going 0-1 with a 3.00 ERA over 15 innings.
