Outfielder Delino DeShields has returned to the Texas Rangers after coming to agreement on a minor-league deal.
After spending the first five seasons of his career in Texas, DeShields played one year in Cleveland after being part of the Corey Kluber trade, where posted a .252/.310/.318 batting line across 37 games played last season. DeShields will likely have to earn his spot on the Rangers roster at spring training.
