DeShields has hit .326 over his past 30 games, but he is still a very limited offensive player. He is a great defender in CF, and his speed can be a game changer when he is on base.
On the downside, DeShields is able to be optioned without being lost to another team, so the Rangers may value that more than his defensive skills, and speed, due to the addition of yet another outfielder in Hunter Pence. Joey Gallo and Danny Santana would likely take over in CF if the Rangers decide to option DeShields.
