Player Notes
Rangers manager Jeff Banister said Thursday that Delino DeShields is not ready to make starts at second base.

Advice: DeShields played three innings there on Wednesday and Banister considers him "an option" at the position, but it doesn't sound like him getting extensive time at the keystone is in the cards. The 22-year-old began his pro career at second but was poor defensively there, necessitating a move to the outfield. Texas is mixing and matching at second base for now but should give Rougned Odor another shot before long.

Delino DeShields Jr. is starting in center field and leading off Thursday night against the Red Sox.

Advice: Leonys Martin is on the bench with the Red Sox throwing left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez. DeShields should continue to start over Martin against southpaws, with Martin handling center against most righties. Interesting note: DeShields made his major league debut at second base late in Wednesday's blowout loss to the Indians.

Delino DeShields Jr. made his major league debut at second base late in Wednesday's blowout loss.

Advice: Manager Jeff Banister said earlier this week that there weren't any immediate plans to give DeShields starts at second base. He played the position regularly from 2011-2013 in the minors, but he proved much better defensively in the outfield. Of course, there's now fewer at-bats for him there with Josh Hamilton off the DL. He'll likely get most of his starts versus lefties unless he shows he's a realistic option at second.

Delino DeShields Jr. is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Indians.

Advice: DeShields made the start in center field on Monday, but Leonys Martin is back in there against right-hander Danny Salazar. We still think Martin will end up getting most of the playing time in center field, which will hurt DeShields as long as Josh Hamilton can stay healthy. Of course, that's far from a guarantee.
