Rangers | Delino DeShields out of Sunday lineup

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.

Rangers | Leonys Martin struggling against righties

Wed, 15 Jul 2015 12:26:34 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Leonys Martin has a .263 on-base percentage against right-handed pitchers this year, and he has lost considerable playing time to OF Delino DeShields Jr. recently. Martin's OBP ranks 92nd in baseball among 94 left-handed hitters with at least 150 plate appearances against righties in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Martin ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) isn't worth owning in shallow mixed leagues, and you could now make the argument that he's unusable in deep mixed formats, too, with a loss of playing time. DeShields ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) continues to be valuable for his stolen base ability as long as he's consistently in the lineup.

Rangers | Josh Hamilton not in the lineup

Sun, 12 Jul 2015 10:54:19 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Josh Hamilton is not in the starting lineup against San Diego Padres SP Tyson Ross Sunday, July 12. OF Delino DeShields Jr. will start in left field, while OF Leonys Martin will start in center field and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Hamilton ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) likely will return to the lineup after the All-Star break. Martin ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) has at least one hit in six of his last nine games and could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore to consider.

Rangers | Delino DeShields making progress

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 17:51:39 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. (hamstring) took a scheduled day off Monday, June 29, from his rehab stint at Triple-A Round Rock. He served as the designated hitter in two games over the weekend. He is scheduled to play in the outfield for the Express Tuesday, June 30, but manager Jeff Banister said he does not want to rush DeShields, a speed player returning from a hamstring issue.

Fantasy Tip: DeShields will not come off the 15-day disabled list until at least Friday, so FantasyScore players will want to wait until the weekend to let him prove his health and play without any setbacks.

Rangers | Delino DeShields close to rehab assignment

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 15:23:04 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. (hamstring) will work out for the third straight day Friday, June 26, and he could begin a rehab assignment Saturday, June 27, if everything goes according to plan. The earliest DeShields could return from the disabled list would be Tuesday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: DeShields ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) had become a valuable fantasy baseball asset with regular playing time, mainly because of his speed atop the Texas order. However, when he returns, Josh Hamilton (hamstring) is likely to be back, as well, further complicating DeShields' path to consistent playing time. For now, DeShields should be held onto in deep mixed and AL-only leagues.

Rangers | Delino DeShields progressing

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 15:00:33 -0700

Texas Rangers OF Delino DeShields Jr. (hamstring) is progressing and hopes to start a rehab assignment next week.

Fantasy Tip: DeShields ($3,600, 7.2% of cap) has been a valuable fantasy baseball commodity this year because of his speed, especially when hitting atop the Rangers lineup and playing regularly. With Josh Hamilton also nearing a return from the DL, it's unknown how often DeShields will play when he returns, but he'll likely still be useful in deep mixed and AL-only leagues.
