Indians' Delino DeShields: Receives first negative test
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeShields tested negative for coronavirus Wednesday and has been cleared to travel to Cleveland, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

League rules mandate that a player test negative twice before being allowed to return to team activities. DeShields isn't quite at that step yet, but the fact that he's been cleared to travel indicates that the team expects him to be ready to work out soon. He was reportedly experiencing only mild symptoms when he originally tested positive, so there's a decent chance he'll have time to get into game shape by Opening Day, or at least in good enough shape to fill his projected bench role.

Indians' Delino DeShields: Tests positive for coronavirus
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeShields has tested positive for COVID-19 and is recovering at home, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

Players began reporting to team facilities for the start of summer training this week, but the 27-year-old won't be joining his teammates. According to Tom Withers of the Associated Press team president Chris Antonetti, DeShields is experiencing "very mild symptoms" and will need to produce two negative tests before being cleared to arrive at Progressive Field.

Indians' Delino DeShields: Set for reserve role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeShields projected to make the roster as a bench outfielder when spring training was suspended, MLB.com's Mandy Bell reports.

Tyler Naquin (knee) could be healthy by the time play resumes, so DeShields may be the fifth outfielder instead of the fourth outfielder he projected to be if the season had started on time. Either way, he should be on the 26-man roster bubble all season. DeShields hit .227/.280/.273 with four strikeouts in 25 spring plate appearances.

Indians' Delino DeShields Jr.: Gets just shy of $2 million
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeShields agreed to a one-year, $1.875 million deal with the Indians, avoiding arbitration, Paul Hoynes of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

This is his second of three years as an arbitration-eligible player. He gets a modest raise over the $1.4 million figure he received last offseason.

Indians' Delino DeShields Jr.: Dealt to Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Indians acquired DeShields from the Rangers on Sunday as part of the deal that sent Corey Kluber (oblique) to Texas, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

Rosenthal confirmed that reliever Emmanuel Clase was also sent to Cleveland, with additional pieces potentially also coming the Tribe's way. With 20-plus steals in all but one of his five seasons in the big leagues, DeShields has been able to keep himself on the fantasy radar at times, but his poor production at the dish prevented him from consistently holding down a full-time role during his time in Texas. The change of scenery might help DeShields, but he could be relegated to a depth role by the time Opening Day arrives if Cleveland has fortified its outfield with other options via free agency or trade. Oscar Mercado is likely the only Indians outfielder on the roster currently locked into an everyday job heading into the spring.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rangers' Delino DeShields Jr.: Nabs two steals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

DeShields went 2-for-5 with a walk and two stolen bases Monday in the Rangers' 8-7 win over the Angels in 11 innings.

DeShields is a perfect 6-for-6 on stolen-base attempts in August, with that total leading all American League hitters and trailing only Starling Marte (eight) for the MLB lead on the month. The speedster will start in center field and bat leadoff in the first game of Tuesday's twin bill and could crack the lineup again in the nightcap with Danny Santana (hamstring) uncertain to be available. He'll make for a strong streaming option for rotisserie managers looking to make up ground in steals.

The 27-year-old center fielder is slashing .242/.342/.303 without a home run in 200 plate appearances against righties.
