Rangers don't intend to start Delino DeShields at second base


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2015) Rangers center fielder Delino DeShields played three innings at second base on Sunday, but the Rangers have no intentions to start him at the position in the immediate future, the Dallas Morning News reports.

"We like what Delino has given us at this point," manager Jeff Banister said. "He’s shown aptitude and instincts. He’s shown maturity in his at-bats. We are trying to find ways to keep him engaged and at the top of the lineup, because when he is on base, he scores runs. I don’t think we can put too much on his plate, but I don’t want to pile it so that things are falling off the edges."

A Rule 5 pick this offseason, DeShields has hit .265/.378/.373 with 10 RBI, 21 runs and 11 stolen bases in 83 at-bats.


Rangers' Banister trying to find at-bats for Delino DeShields


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2015) Rangers outfielder Delino DeShields has been bouncing between center and left field the last few weeks, but now that Josh Hamilton is starting in left field, the team has to get creative in ways to keep DeShields in the lineup. 

Although, the Rangers gave a glimpse of their potential plans Wednesday against the Indians, as DeShields played the final three innings at second base after starting in center field.

"I can see him getting enough at-bats to keep him engaged in that leadoff spot for us," manager Jeff Banister told MLB Network Radio on Tuursday. "It was nice to see him at second base."

DeShieds is batting .316 with a .418 on-base percentage and .857 OPS in his last 17 games.

"It's funny how the ball finds you," Banister said. "That was good. That's what we wanted, to see him make some plays."

DeShields played second while in the minors, but hasn't played the position since Sept. 2 of 2014.

"It took a minute to get adjusted," DeShields said. "I didn't feel too bad."

Rangers CF Leonys Martin in, Delino DeShields out Tuesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/26/2015) Rangers center fielder Leonys Martin is in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Indians. Martin has been in and out of the lineup over the last several games, but he will bat lead-off Tuesday.

Martin has been in a loose platoon with Delino DeShields, and Martin gets the start Tuesday against a right-hander. When he's played, Martin has hit well. Over his last eight games, he's batting an even .300 (6 for 20) with a home run and three doubles. 

DeShields is on the bench to start Tuesday's game.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2015) Rangers center fielder Delino DeShields is leading off in Monday's matchup with the Indians.

The righty swinger is up against right-hander Shaun Marcum in the matchup.

The Rangers are underdogs (+125) in Cleveland on Monday, per VegasInsider.com.


Rangers don't plan on moving Delino DeShields to second base


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/24/2015) Rangers outfielder Delino DeShields appears to be locked into his position, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

DeShields was rumored to be moving to the infield to play second base, but manager Jeff Banister said Sunday he will remain in the outfield and likely platoon in center with Leonys Martin.

"We have worked Delino at second base. He has progressively gotten better," Banister said. "I don't have an immediate plans to have Delino at second base. I’ve asked a lot of Delino, and he has responded to it. Let's not get too far ahead of ourselves."

DeShields played second base in the minors for three seasons, but hasn't done so since 2013. He is hitting .271 with 10 RBI in 70 at-bats this season.


Rangers seeking ways to keep Delino DeShields in lineup


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2015) The return of Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton as early as Monday in Cleveland could result in changes for hot-hitting Delino DeShields.

He is making it quite difficult for that move to be a benching.

"I hope he continues to make it challenging," Jeff Banister told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "We'll do everything we can as long as the young man continues to produce and play. These things usually have a way of working themselves out."

DeShields could find himself at second base, where Rougned Odor struggled and Tommy Field and Adam Rosales have split time. DeShields has yet to play there this season, but the Rangers would likely want to keep him and his .279/.405/.393 slash line in the lineup.


Rangers flip Delino DeShilds, Shin-Soo Choo in Friday order


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2015) Emerging Rangers left fielder Delino DeShields continues to climb the lineup ladder. He is batting leadoff Friday night for the second time this season and first time since April 15.

He is flip-flopping with Shin-Soo Choo, who will bat second against the host Yankees. He has not held down that position since April 13.

DeShields has scored 13 runs in his last 14 games, during which time he has raised his batting average from .154 to .279. He is, however, on a 3-for-16 slide.


Rangers OF Delino DeShields making most of opportunity


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2015) Jeff Banister has never declared rookie Delino DeShields a starter for the Rangers. Now he doesn't have to. Based on performance and at least for now, it's a given.

DeShields is set to make his 10th straight start Thursday and 14th in the last 16 games. He was originally placed in the lineup when Leonys Martin was lost to a hand injury, but he's not about to let go. DeShields owns a .318 batting average and .444 on-base percentage since May 4. He is even receiving opportunities to bat second.

"He's earned that," Banister told the Dallas Morning News.

His status could change upon the trumpeted return of Josh Hamilton, who could be activated as early as Monday in Cleveland. DeShields might wind up in a platoon with Martin in which he faces only left-handers.


Rangers CF Leonys Martin in starting lineup Wednesday


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/20/2015) Rangers center fielder Leonys Martin is back in the starting lineup for Wednesday's game against the Red Sox. He will bat seventh in the order.

Martin was held out of Tuesday's contest with a left-hander on the mound, but socked a pinch-hit home run in the ninth inning.

With Martin back in the lineup, Delino DeShields slides over to left and Kyle Blanks will be on the bench. 


Rangers' Elvis Andrus returns to No. 2 spot Tuesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/19/2015) Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus is batting second in Tuesday's matchup with the Red Sox.

Andrus has been the team's No. 2 hitter for much of the season but was dropped to six for the last two games, with Delino DeShields moving up to second. However, Andrus will resume his regular role Tuesday against lefty Wade Miley. The shortstop has hit .362/.423/.511 with one home run and three RBI in 47 at-bats against lefties.

The Rangers are underdogs (+125) in Boston on Tuesday, per VegasInsider.com.


Rangers drop Andrus down to No. 6 spot; DeShields to bat second


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2015) Rangers manager Jeff Banister dropped shortstop Elvis Andrus down to the No. 6 spot in the batting order on Saturday against the Indians, per MLB.com. Andrus started 25 of Texas' 36 games in the No. 2. Delino DeShields will take over that role on Saturday.

"Let's see if Delino can carry what he's been doing in the nine hole up to the two slot," manager Jeff Banister said to the Dallas Morning News. "Against right-handers, that's been a bit of a challenge for us."

Andrus is hitting .190 (4 for 21) over his last six games, lowering his batting average from .230 to .224 on the year.

Texas is an underdog (+124) at home against the Indians.


Rangers CF Leonys Martin remains sidelined on Thursday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2015) Rangers center fielder Leonys Martin not included in the starting lineup for the second straight day on Thursday, after aggravating his left wrist sprain on Monday. Delino DeShields will bat ninth and play in center field in Martin's absence.

Manager Jeff Banister indicated on Wednesday that Martin could be sidelined for a few days in order for the soreness to subside. He received a cortisone shot to avoid a stint on the disabled list, per MLB.com.

"Right now I don't feel any pain, it just feels weird after getting the cortisone shot," Martin said Thursday morning. "I've got to keep getting my treatment. The trainer said it would be two weeks to feel completely 100 percent, so I've got to keep doing treatment."

Texas is a slight underdog (+100) at home against Kansas City, per VegasInsider.com.


Rangers' Delino DeShields collects three hits Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

DeShields fell just a home run shy of the cycle, knocking both a double and a triple off starter Yordano Ventura. He's 5 for 9 with two walks and five runs scored against the Royals in three games this week. DeShields owns a .282/.391/.436 line with seven RBI, 12 runs scored and nine steals in 39 at-bats.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Martin was jammed on a pitch Monday, resulting in a reaggravation of the injury. He underwent an MRI, which revealed no fractured bones, leaving him day to day moving forward. He has hit .209/.246/.278 with one home run, eight RBI and six stolen bases in 115 at-bats. Delino DeShields Jr. is playing center field and batting ninth Tuesday.
