Rangers' Ian Desmond: Drives in three against A's
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Desmond went 2-for-4 with three RBI and a run in a 6-1 win against Oakland on Wednesday.

Those runs he knocked in were big ones, as Desmond turned a 2-1 deficit into a 3-2 lead with a two-run single in the fifth, then tacked on an insurance run with a seventh-inning single. Although Desmond's having a great season on the whole, his power has utterly vanished lately -- the shortstop-turned-outfielder hasn't homered since July 28 and hasn't had an extra-base hit since July 29. Wednesday could be a sign that he's turning these August struggles around, though, so stay patient if you own him.

Rangers' Ian Desmond: Given day off Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Desmond is out of the lineup Sunday against the Royals, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Desmond's absence doesn't appear to be injury-related; instead, the Rangers likely just wanted to give the All-Star a day off since he's started every game since June 24. With Desmond out of the lineup, DeShields will start in center field and serve as the team's leadoff hitter.

Rangers' Ian Desmond: Homers among three hits for second straight game
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Desmond went 3-for-5 with a double, a homer and two runs in Wednesday's loss to the Angels.

That's consecutive three-hit games with a homer for Desmond as his best-ever season continues. Coming off perhaps the worst year of his career -- you can debate between 2011 and 2015, but both seasons were pretty poor -- Desmond has found new life in Texas. He is just one short of last year's homer total and has already stolen more bases (with a better success rate) while hitting well over .300 -- something he's never done before. BABIP regression could return his average to a more typical .280ish by season's end, but Desmond should continue offering plenty in the other four standard fantasy categories even so.

Rangers' Ian Desmond: Slugs 17th homer against Angels
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Desmond hit a solo home run as part of a 3-for-4 night with a walk in a loss Tuesday to the Angels.

Desmond was mired in a dreadful 2-for-19 slump over his past five games before breaking out in a big way Tuesday. Now with 17 home runs, Desmond is two home runs away from matching his home run total from 156 games in 2015. His slugging percentage is now up to .523, which would be his highest mark ever in a full season if he can maintain it.

Rangers' Ian Desmond: Blasts 16th homer of season Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Desmond went 1-for-4 with a solo homer Sunday at the Cubs.

Desmond's 16th bomb of 2016 gave the Rangers an eighth-inning insurance run in a 4-1 victory. This was the first time he's left the yard in his last 12 games, and he's slashing .315/.369/.519 on the year.
