Delino DeShields went 2-for-5 with a home run and a stolen base in Tuesday's loss to the Blue Jays.

The homer was much more rare than the stolen base, as it was just DeShields' second of the year. He's now swiped 22 bases on the season. DeShields is hitting .257/.347/.373 in his rookie campaign.

Delino DeShields went 1-for-2 with a solo home run, a walk and two runs scored in Friday's win over the Rays.

DeShields had just about every category covered. He was hit by a pitch, he walked, he stole a base, he was caught stolen and he scored twice. He also homered in the seventh, his first career tater. The 22-year-old can check that off the list. He's hitting .266/.359/.390 with the singular home run, 23 RBI, 50 runs scored and 19 steals this season.

Delino DeShields went 0-for-5 with four strikeouts in Sunday's loss to the Mariners.

Oh dear. DeShields flied out against Felix Hernandez to start the game. That sweet, sweet memory of bat-to-ball contact must have seemed pretty distant by the end of the game, as the 22-year-old would strike out in each of his next four at-bats. He's hitting .261/.355/.376 with no home runs, 22 RBI, 49 runs scored and 18 steals this season.
Aug 9 - 7:03 PM

Delino DeShields had an RBI triple, scored a run and stole a base in Tuesday's win over the Astros.

DeShields hit a run-scoring triple in the fifth inning, his seventh triple of the season. He also walked and stole his 18th base of the season in the game. The 22-year-old is batting .270/.369/.394 on the year.
Aug 5 - 12:44 AM

Delino DeShields went 4-for-6 with a double, a triple, two RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's lopsided win over the Rockies.

DeShields fell a homer short of the cycle, but it was still a huge night for the 22-year-old. Oddly enough, DeShields' two RBI came on a single -- not his double or triple -- in the second inning. It's been an up and down first year for DeShields, who is batting .277/.364/.410 with 38 runs scored and 15 stolen bases overall.
Jul 22 - 1:11 AM

Delino DeShields went 2-for-4 with a double in Sunday's loss to the Padres.

The double was DeShields' 11th of the season. After missing three weeks with a hamstring injury, the Rangers brought the outfielder back into the fold on June 5. He's recorded five hits in 20 at-bats since returning and enters the All-Star Break hitting .267/.360/.394 with no homers, 12 RBI and 36 runs scored.
Jul 12 - 6:36 PM

Rangers activated OF Delino DeShields from the 15-day disabled list.

Jul 5 - 3:55 PM

Delino Deshields (hamstring) will be reevaluated after Saturday's workout.

Deshields recently wrapped up a six-game rehab assignment with Triple-A Round Rock and is close to 100 percent. He should be activated from the disabled list in the next day or two. Texas has a crowded outfield now with Josh Hamilton, Leonys Martin and Shin-Soo Choo all seeing regular at-bats. Deshields had 13 steals in 48 games before his injury.
Jul 4 - 7:52 PM

Delino DeShields (hamstring) will begin a minor league rehab assignment Saturday with Triple-A Round Rock.

Delino DeShields (hamstring) took batting practice on Wednesday.

Jun 24 - 6:06 PM

Delino DeShields reported improvement with his ailing left hamstring on Tuesday.

"I’m walking normal speed," he said Tuesday. "It’s not great, but it’s better than it was yesterday, so that’s good." DeShields was placed on the disabled list Monday and is expected to be sidelined for around three weeks.
Jun 17 - 10:06 AM

Delino DeShields (hamstring) is expected to be sidelined for three weeks.

Jun 15 - 5:33 PM

Rangers placed OF Delino DeShields on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left hamstring.

DeShields suffered the injury during Sunday's game. It's not clear at this point how long the rookie might be sidelined, as the results of his MRI have yet to be revealed.
Jun 15 - 4:18 PM

Delino DeShields was removed from Sunday's game against the Twins with a left hamstring injury.

He is set to undergo an MRI to determine the severity of the injury. It's unclear whether or not he'll require a trip to the disabled list or not, but any hamstring injury to a player who relies primarily on speed to derive fantasy value is a huge red flag. The Rangers should have an update on his status after the MRI results, but fantasy owners may want to have an alternative option available for next week.
