30-year old righty swinging outfielder Ian Desmond is rewarding the Texas Rangers for signing him to a 1-year, $8 million dollar deal over this winter. Desmond was a shortstop until this year, so the Rangers really had faith in him in making a transition to playing the outfield defensively. Desmond has now played in 75 games for the Rangers so far this year and he is 95 of 295 (.322 avg, .898 OPS) with 54 runs scored, 13 homers, 49 RBIs and 13 stolen bases. Desmond leads the Rangers in runs scored, RBIs, stolen bases and he is tied for the team lead in homers! The Rangers will have to ante up if they want to keep Desmond past this year!
