Player Notes
Ian Desmond went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and three runs scored in a win over the Yankees on Tuesday.

Advice: The revitalization of Desmond continues. Left for dead after a terrible start, he's 10-for-25 (.400) with three home runs, seven RBI, 10 runs scored and three steals in his last eight games. His 17 runs scored on the year are third-best in the American League.

Ian Desmond hit a solo home run, stole two bases and scored three runs against the White Sox on Saturday.

Advice: Desmond has shown some signs of life lately, homering in two of his last three games and reaching base in seven straight. The walks are an especially promising sign that he's seeing the ball better -- he walked three times Saturday and has nine compared to 18 strikeouts on the year. He'll never hit for a high average, but the power and speed aspects of his game make him a very worthwhile player to own when he's right.

Sat, Apr 23 Rotoworld
Ian Desmond went 2-for-4 with a three-run home run in Thursday's 7-4 win over the Astros.

Advice: Desmond jump-started the Ranger offense, connecting for a three-run homer off reigning AL Cy Young winner Dallas Keuchel with two outs in the first inning. The dinger was Desmond's first of the 2016 campaign. Through his first 57 at-bats, the 30-year-old is hitting a lackluster .158/.226/.246. Unless he can start hitting more consistently, his fantasy value is limited.
