Rangers | Leonys Martin in wrist brace

Tue, 05 May 2015 16:37:23 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Leonys Martin (wrist) is wearing a brace after spraining his wrist Monday, May 4. Manager Jeff Bannister indicated Martin's comfort level will be tested if he misses more than five days, at which point the team may consider placing him on the disabled list. OF Delino DeShields Jr. got the start in center field Tuesday, May 5, against the Houston Astros.

Fantasy Tip: DeShields Jr. ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will hit out of the eighth spot in the batting order, limiting his potential on FantasyScore. Owners should stay away until they see some positive signs.

Rangers | Delino DeShields starting in LF

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 13:43:34 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. is starting in left field and hitting ninth in the batting order against Seattle Mariners SP J.A. Happ Tuesday, April 28.

Fantasy Tip: DeShields ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is useful for his speed in fantasy leagues, but he loses what little FantasyScore appeal he has on Tuesday by hitting at the bottom of a weak-hitting Rangers lineup. Avoid him at FantasyScore tonight.

Rangers | Delino DeShields, Adam Rosales playing

Wed, 15 Apr 2015 09:47:14 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. and 1B Adam Rosales are both in the starting lineup against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago Wednesday, April 15. DeShields is starting in left field and hitting leadoff, while Rosales is playing first base and hitting seventh in the batting order.

Fantasy Tip: DeShields ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) and Rosales ($1,600) are both weak plays at FantasyScore Wednesday, but DeShields garners slightly more promise while hitting leadoff. A depleted Texas lineup today that's resting Shin-Soo Choo makes Santiago ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) slightly tempting as a cheap starter.

Rangers | Delino DeShields could make club

Sun, 15 Feb 2015 21:10:56 -0800

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. is considered the top candidate to serve as the backup to OF Leonys Martin in center field. He was acquired in the Rule 5 draft from the Houston Astros.

Fantasy Tip: DeShields, like his father, has speed to burn. He hit just .236 in his first year at Double-A last season, so he still has a ways to go before he is relevant in fantasy circles, but that speed is awfully attractive.

The Houston Astros re-assigned 1B Jon Singleton, SS Carlos Correa, SPs Mark Appel and Mike Foltynewicz and OFs Delino DeShields Jr. and Gary Springer to minor league camp Thursday, March 20.

Fantasy Tip: Springer projects to be the first prospect called up to the bigs this year, but he could easily be joined by Singleton and Correa later in the year.
