Stocks: Bullpen up, Scott Feldman down
Adrian Beltre: Last week's AL player of the week is 7-for-21 the last six games with two homers, seven RBIs and a 1.201 OPS. And he continues to make ridiculous plays at third base. His stock just keeps going up.
Yu Darvish: He made just one start in the last week, but it was an important one. He's beginning to show signs that he's rounding into form at the right time. After skipping a start because of a tight quad, Darvish looked good. He pitched seven scoreless innings, gave up six hits, had two walks and 10 strikeouts in a win over the Rays on Tuesday.
Mike Napoli: He tested the strained quad by running the bases and didn't feel good enough to go out on a rehab assignment. Once he does go out, his stock will likely head back up. But for now, the Rangers are without one of their catchers. Still, it's best that Napoli make sure he's totally healthy before he returns.
Mike Olt: He makes this list simply because of injury and lack of playing time. He has plantar fasciitis and, as many of you can probably attest, that's not a pleasant thing. He was 0-for-3 in limited action the last six games.
