Rangers | Delino DeShields' knee close to normal

Fri, 02 Oct 2015 18:23:38 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. (knee) said his left knee is "close to 100 percent." He is no longer wearing a brace and said that things are normal aside from occasional tightness.

Fantasy Tip: Deshields ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has appeared in all but one game since Sept. 11, and had scored 17 runs in his last 19 games entering play Friday, Oct. 2, so the injury hasn't impacted him too negatively. He makes a solid value play in FantasyScore.

Rangers | Delino DeShields returns vs. Oakland

Fri, 11 Sep 2015 15:21:32 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. (knee) is starting in center field and batting leadoff against Oakland Athletics SP Jesse Chavez Friday, Sept. 11.

Fantasy Tip: DeShields ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) missed the past three games with the injury, and the nature of it paired with speed being his best attribute, DeShield's fantasy value could be hindered in the short term. FantasyScore players shouldn't be afraid to fade the speedster until he proves his health, especially on the base paths.

Rangers | Delino DeShields still sidelined

Thu, 10 Sep 2015 11:07:54 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. (knee) remains out of the lineup Thursday, Sept. 10. OF Will Venable is starting in center field and hitting leadoff against Seattle Mariners SP Felix Hernandez.

Fantasy Tip: We don't recommend using Venable ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) on FantasyScore against King Felix today. Venable does have speed (14 stolen bases this year), but he's hitting just .256 and has only six home runs in 2015.

Rangers | Delino DeShields remains out

Wed, 09 Sep 2015 16:42:51 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. (knee) is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, Sept. 9. OF Drew Stubbs is starting in center field and batting first against Seattle Mariners SP Vidal Nuno Wednesday.

Fantasy Tip: DeShields ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has been out the past two games, but he'll likely return to the lineup sooner than later. He is a solid option in the majority of fantasy leagues because of his speed. Stubbs ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is nothing more than a desperation flier for FantasyScore players Wednesday. Although, for those willing to take on the risk, Stubbs does grab a value boost batting leadoff.

Sun, 02 Aug 2015 11:49:58 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. is not in the lineup Sunday, Aug. 2, against the San Francisco Giants. OF Leonys Martin is hitting eighth.

Fantasy Tip: DeShields ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) is hitting .143 against San Francisco pitching, which may have been a factor in the decision to give him an off day. Martin ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) is 1-for-2 against Giants starter Mike Leake, so it may be worth the purchase on FantasyScore.

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 16:41:50 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. is not in the starting lineup Monday, July 27. OF Leonys Martin is starting in center field and hitting eighth against New York Yankees SP Ivan Nova.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has struggled mightily this season and has five hits in 28 at-bats (.179) in July with only one RBI. His struggles at the dish have made him a bench player of late, too. He's not a good daily pick until he shows signs of breaking his slump.
