Rangers | Delino DeShields out again

Thu, 05 May 2016 12:56:58 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. is not in the starting lineup again Thursday, May 5. OF Ryan Rua is starting in left field again and is hitting seventh against Toronto Blue Jays SP J.A. Happ.

Fantasy Tip: DeShields, hitting .239 with three stolen bases, continues to see his role diminish as he struggles at the plate. He had recently been banished to the bottom of the order, too, where his stolen base prowess won't blossom. Rua has a very limited ceiling and is strictly a deep sleeper in daily setups if you're looking to save some cash.

Rangers | Delino DeShields takes a seat

Wed, 04 May 2016 14:31:11 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, May 4. OF Ryan Rua draws into the lineup in left field and is hitting eighth against Toronto Blue Jays SP Aaron Sanchez.

Fantasy Tip: DeShields' fantasy allure is dropping quickly, as he's hitting just .239/.316/.307 with one home run and three stolen bases in 88 at-bats. He's also been relegated to the bottom of the order lately, which limits his fantasy upside. DeShields' is mainly an asset for his speed, but hitting low in the order hurts his ability to do so. Rua is a low-end outfield option in daily games tonight.

Rangers | Delino DeShields sitting vs. Angels

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 13:36:23 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. is not in the starting lineup Friday, April 29. OF Ryan Rua draws into the lineup and is batting eighth, and 2B Rougned Odor is leading off against Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim SP Hector Santiago Friday.

Fantasy Tip: DeShields owns a .219/.305/.301 slash line to start the season, and he has been hitting ninth more than first of late. His fantasy value is dwindling. Odor receives a modest fantasy boost in the run and stolen base columns setting the table for the Rangers, but it hurts his RBI potential. Rua is a potential flier in daily contests because of his .292/.320/.458 career slash line against southpaws, but you'll still want to keep expectations in check.

Rangers | Delino DeShields back in leadoff spot

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 13:20:12 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. is batting first against New York Yankees SP CC Sabathia Wednesday, April 27. Rangers 2B Rougned Odor is batting sixth Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: Odor has been leading off the past three games, but facing a lefty, DeShields is setting the table again Wednesday. DeShields grabs a huge fantasy boost batting atop the lineup, whereas Odor's value doesn't significantly change outside of likely trading a few opportunities to score runs for RBI chances. Both are strong daily options against Sabathia Wednesday, too.

Rangers | Delino DeShields drops in lineup

Mon, 25 Apr 2016 14:22:15 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. is batting ninth in the starting lineup against New York Yankees SP Nathan Eovaldi Monday, April 25. 2B Rougned Odor is batting first in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: DeShields remains relevant in all formats, but he'll lose value in daily fantasy leagues if he sticks at the bottom of the order. The move up the lineup can help Odor's fantasy value if this move lasts. He is batting .286 with one home run and three RBI over the last seven games and is an attractive starting option.

Rangers | Delino DeShields out of the lineup

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 10:11:20 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. is not in the starting lineup against Chicago White Sox SP Mat Latos Sunday, April 24. SS Ian Desmond will start in center field, while OF Ryan Rua will start in left field and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Rua has seven hits in his last six games played but has only one RBI on the season. Rua could be a cheap sleeper option in daily fantasy leagues but does not have a lot of fantasy value.

Rangers | Delino DeShields has three hits, HR

Wed, 13 Apr 2016 16:31:45 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. mashed his first home run of the season Wednesday, April 13, versus the Seattle Mariners. He finished the afternoon 3-for-5 with two runs and an RBI.

Fantasy Tip: DeShields is one of the more underrated leadoff men in the league, having the ability to steal 30 or 40 bases with potential for 100 runs and a respectable batting average. The homer today was just gravy, considering DeShields had just two all of last year, but hitting atop the dangerous Rangers batting order, he has a place on virtually any fantasy roster.

Rangers | Delino DeShields takes a seat

Mon, 11 Apr 2016 14:28:21 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. is not in the starting lineup Monday, April 11. SS Ian Desmond moves to center field and OF Ryan Rua is starting in left field and is hitting eighth against Seattle Mariners SP Hisashi Iwakuma.

Fantasy Tip: Rua hit just .193 with four home runs and seven RBI in 28 games for the Rangers last year and isn't worth considering in daily formats Monday night.

Rangers | Ian Desmond in center

Wed, 06 Apr 2016 08:34:32 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Ian Desmond is hitting second and playing center field Wednesday, April 6, in place of OF Delino DeShields Jr.

Fantasy Tip: Desmond takes on lefty Wade Miley today, and he hit 16 points higher against lefties over the last three years. Desmond is a midrange shortstop option and is also more valuable now that he'll gain outfield eligibility.

Rangers | Delino DeShields plays Friday

Fri, 25 Mar 2016 15:27:40 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. (biceps) had four at-bats in a minor league game and had two hits and a stolen base Friday, March 25.

Fantasy Tip: DeShields, after stealing 25 bases in 425 at-bats for Texas last year, should have a starting spot sewn up. He's a perfect late-round target in deep mixed leagues for stolen bases. Keep track of his progress, but he should be ready for opening day barring any setbacks.
