Rangers' Ian Desmond: Back in lineup Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Desmond is starting in right field for Friday's game against the Red Sox, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Desmond was out of the lineup resting during the Rangers' last contest against the Reds on Wednesday. He is batting second while playing in right for the series opener versus Boston, and has been one of the stars for the club this season, batting .316/.367/.518 with 12 home runs and 47 RBI.

Rangers' Ian Desmond: Gets day off Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Desmond is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Reds.

Desmond gets the night off as the Rangers employ a predominantly left-handed lineup against Cincinnati righty Dan Straily. Entering Wednesday, Desmond had played every day since April 19 and he only had one day off prior to that date. He figures to rejoin the lineup for Friday's series opener against the Red Sox. Ryan Rua will take over in center field in place of Desmond on Wednesday.

Rangers' Ian Desmond: Hits 11th homer against Baltimore
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Desmond hit his 11th home run, a solo shot, in a 2-for-4 game in Monday's win over Baltimore.

Desmond's hot June continues, as he was hitting a robust .342/.402/.434 with eight extra-base hits, including three home runs, in the month entering Monday night's game. He has bumped up his batting line from .297/.344/.480 to a cool .312/.362/.505 in that span. The batting average and on-base percentage would both mark a career high, and it would mark the first time Desmond has slugged over .500 since 2012 if he can keep up this pace.

Rangers' Ian Desmond: On base four more times, including homer Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Desmond went 2-for-3 with his 10th homer, two walks and two runs against the A's on Thursday.

Last year, Desmond slumped to the worst numbers of his career by far, but the change of scenery to Texas has rejuvenated him in stunning fashion -- now he's on pace for a career year, with his current .867 OPS representing his best-ever mark aside from a small sample of games in 2009. Fantasy owners should easily get a 20-20 season out of Desmond, and the fact that he's cut down his strikeout rate dramatically from the last two seasons should help him maintain a solid average, albeit not the .314 he's sitting on now. Indeed, that .378 BABIP will normalize, but there's nothing in Desmond's profile at this point to suggest he'll see extreme regression.

Rangers' Ian Desmond: Has eighth multi-hit effort in Wednesday effort
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Desmond went 2-for-5 with an RBI and a run in Wednesday's 7-5 victory over the A's.

The veteran outfielder continues to rake in June, now slashing .356/.397/.525 for the month following Wednesday's performance. It was Desmond's eighth multi-hit effort of June, and he's on pace to match the 22 RBI he produced in May. The 30-year-old is contributing all across the box score this season, with a .310 average, 28 extra-base hits (18 doubles, a triple and nine homers), 43 RBI, 17 walks and a 12-for-13 success rate on stolen bases.
