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.

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.
