2017 FANTASY BASEBALL BRIEF: DeLINO DeSHIELDS A PERSON OF INTEREST AGAIN

The Texas Rangers have not given up on Delino DeShields just yet.  After crashing and burning at the start of 2016 (a struggle that got him eventually sent back to the minors), DeShields took full advantage of another potential chance to stick this spring but unleashing his speed to steal 12 bases and also bat a very good .316.  A 26.6 K/9 rate undermined DeShields last season and that obviously is what will make him sink or swim this time around as well but for now it looks like he will grab hold of the precious leadoff spot for the Rangers.  If DeShields can keep up his walks and hit at least .260 or so, the steals could flow in a massive way.  That could make DeShields a terrific pick up this late in spring training and he serves as another example of how cheap speed is always available and randomly shows up.  There is no guarantee DeShields carries his big spring over into the regular season but he is at least back on the fantasy baseball map for the time being.
