J. P. Arencibia C/1B/DH TEX 1 Month

Arencibia had another fantastic night at the plate, going 3-for-5 with a walk and four RBI, while slugging his seventh home run of the year and adding a double in Tuesday's win over the White Sox.

Granted it was not the two-home run, seven-RBI outburst like last Tuesday's performance against the Yankees, Arencibia still got the job done Tuesday. Arencibia has been mostly hit or miss this year and went 2-for-12 in between the two big outings. He now possesses a mediocre .198/.261/.421 slash line in 121 at-bats this year.

J.P. Arencibia had a ridiculous night at the plate Tuesday, finishing 4-for-5 with two doubles, two home runs and seven RBI against the Yankees.

Arencibia connected on a solo shot in the fifth inning before blasting a grand slam in the seventh. His 12 total bases were a career high for a single game, and it was the eighth two-homer game of his career. The power has always been present, but his .183/.223/.404 line is what keeps him from being a fantasy option.

J.P. Arencibia broke a 0-0 tie in the 13th inning, his only hit in five at-bats, but the Rangers lost in 14 innings to the Yankees on Tuesday.

Arencibia took David Huff out to right-center to give the Rangers a 1-0 lead in the 13th, but closer Joakim Soria gave the run right back in the bottom half of the inning. Arencibia has had a miserable year offensively, but he has homered in two of five games since the All-Star break. He's slashing a terrible .139/.186/.291 with three home runs and 10 RBI in 86 plate appearances.

J.P. Arencibia launched a three-run homer and scored two runs in Friday's win over the Blue Jays.

Arencibia played 20 games at first base with Triple-A Round Rock and made his first major league start at the position on Friday while facing his former team. He's not going to hit for average, but his pop could come in handy in AL-only leagues if he continues to get regular at-bats.

Rangers purchased the contract of C/1B J.P. Arencibia from Triple-A Round Rock.

Arencibia hit just .133/.182/.233 over 66 plate appearances with the Rangers earlier this season, but now he's getting another chance. The difference this time is that he is expected to see most of his playing time at first base now that Carlos Pena has been designated for assignment. The 28-year-old appeared in 20 games there during his time with Triple-A Round rock.

Rangers sent C J.P. Arencibia outright to Triple-A Round Rock.

Arencibia is now off the Rangers' 40-man roster. He was Texas' starting catcher on Opening Day because of Geovany Soto's knee injury but batted just .133/.182/.233 over 66 plate appearances and might not make it back to Arlington this season. A waste of $1.8 million.

Rangers optioned C J.P. Arencibia to Triple-A Round Rock.

Arencibia was batting just .133/.182/.233 with 15 strikeouts in 20 games this season for the Rangers. Texas made a $1.8 million mistake on him in December.

J.P. Arencibia went 0-for-2, grounded into a double play and committed his second error of the year before being remove for a pinch-hitter Monday against the Mariners.

The Rangers shouldn't have signed Arencibia over the winter, they shouldn't have carried him after his awful spring (even with Geovany Soto hurt) and they shouldn't continue to keep him around now. Just admit the mistake and move on.

J.P. Arencibia went 0-for-3 and had a passed ball Monday against the Red Sox.

Arencibia isn't one of those catchers who makes up for his poor hitting with strong defense, and all things factored in, he rates as one of the game's very worst players over the last year. He's off to a 2-for-16 start with no RBI in five games this season, so the Rangers may want to start going to Robinson Chirinos more.
