Rangers outfielder Delino DeShields left the game after straining his left hamstring in left field during the sixth inning Sunday at Globe Life Park.
DeShields was making a play on a fly ball on the dirt in deep left-center field. He felt to the dirt just short of the wall. He got up slowly after the triple and left the game after the Rangers medical staff looked him over.
He’ll have an MRI Sunday to determine the extent of the injury.
Jake Smolinski replaced him in left field.
DeShields was 1 for 3 in the game, reaching on a bunt single in the fifth. He has been a catalyst in the leadoff spot for the Texas offense during the team’s surge in May and June. The Rangers are 13-6 since DeShields became the full-time lead-off hitter in late May.
