    • DeShields went 2-for-4 with his sixth home run of the season and two runs in Tuesday's 14-3 loss to the Astros. The Astros held a 14-1 lead before DeShields connected on a fairly meaningless home run, but fantasy owners certainly won't complain about the rare power contribution from the speedy outfielder. It was just his second extra-base hit in the last 15 games, during which he compiled 56 at-bats.

    • Rangers' Delino DeShields Jr.: Not starting Friday
      By RotoWire Staff

      DeShields is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the A's. DeShields has put together a solid .275/.354/.374 line over 112 games this season. He's also managed to steal 29 bases and score 72 runs in that time. However, despite his production, it's possible that DeShields could see less time in the lineup as the season comes to a close. With Carlos Gomez back in full health, the Rangers may opt to platoon DeShields in left field with Nomar Mazara.

    • DeShields went 2-for-4 with a stolen base and a run in Tuesday's 3-1 victory over the Mariners. DeShields helped manufacture the go-ahead run in the eighth inning by advancing Will Middlebrooks to third base on a bunt single, with Middlebrooks coming around to score on Shin-Soo Choo's sacrifice fly. The speedy leadoff man then showed off his wheels with his 29th stolen base of the season before adding an insurance run on Elvis Andrus' base hit to left field. The theft ended a bit of a drought in the stolen-base department for DeShields, who had gone 0-for-3 in steal attempts over his past 14 games.

    • Rangers' Delino DeShields Jr.: Scores twice Sunday
      By RotoWire Staff

      DeShields went 0-for-2 with a pair of walks and two runs in Sunday's 4-2 win over the Angels. Since logging three steals in the first two games of September, DeShields has struggled to make an impact on the basepaths, going 0-for-3 on stolen-base attempts. Despite the lack of impact in that category of late, DeShields has still been getting on base at a decent clip, which will be enough to keep him in the leadoff spot for the foreseeable future, especially with Carlos Gomez (ankle) facing an uncertain timetable for returning to action.

    • DeShields went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two runs in Monday's 5-3 win over the Mariners. DeShields was able to take his time running the bases on his fifth long ball of the season in the fourth inning, but his exceptional speed was essential to scoring the Rangers' fourth run of the contest in the second inning. After reaching base on a bunt single, DeShields scored from first base on Shin-Soo Choo's two-run double, running through a stop sign at third base to beat a tag with a headfirst slide into home plate. The outfielder has continued his second-half success with a .316/.413/.579 slash line in September and should be a must-start option in most formats the rest of the season while he's guaranteed regular at-bats.
