Player Notes
Phil Klein picked up a win in his first major league start after allowing one run over 5 1/3 innings Wednesday against the Red Sox.

Advice: A nice showing from Klein, who was a career reliever until the Rangers decided to experiment with him this month. We like him fine as a reliever, but we're skeptical he'll prove useful as a starter for the long haul. The Rangers don't have a whole lot to lose, though.

Rangers recalled RHP Phil Klein from Triple-A Round Rock.

Advice: He'll make his first major league start on Wednesday versus the Red Sox. Klein has made just four career professional starts, so it should go without saying that he can't be trusted in fantasy circles against Boston.

Wed, May 20 Rotoworld
Phil Klein will be called up to start Wednesday against the Red Sox.

Advice: He'll take the place of the injured Ross Detwiler (shoulder) in the starting rotation. The 26-year-old made six relief appearances with the Rangers earlier this season and has posted a 1.69 ERA and 15/11 K/BB ratio over 16 innings in Triple-A. He's not a fantasy option.

Wed, May 20 Rotoworld
Phil Klein was scratched from a scheduled start at Triple-A Round Rock on Sunday and is a candidate to start for the Rangers on Wednesday.

Advice: He's presumably the leading candidate to assume Ross Detwiler's (shoulder) spot in the rotation. Klein has been used almost exclusively in relief during his career but has made two starts for Round Rock this season. He's held a 1.69 ERA and 15/11 K/BB ratio over 16 innings.
