Who's On, Who's Not?: May 20

In a weekly staple, we'll discuss who's in a groove and who's in a rut for the Texas Rangers.

Who's On?

Prince Fielder — Once again, Fielder is just tearing the cover off the ball and has yet to hit a slump at any point this season. Over the last six games, Fielder is batting .435 with a .500 on-base percentage to go with a double and two home runs.

Delino DeShields — In his last six games, DeShields is batting .350 with a .435 on-base percentage with a double, a triple and a stolen base. He's really starting to make a strong case to being the team's primary center fielder given Leonys Martin's struggles.

Shawn Tolleson — Is he the team's new closer? We're not sure, but he is pitching well over the last week. He's allowed just three hits in 3 1/3 innings with five strikeouts and no runs.

Who's Off?

Elvis Andrus — He's batting .190 over his last six games and had a costly defensive miscue on Tuesday night that could've been the difference in the Rangers' 4-3 loss to Boston.

Neftali Feliz — He's been demoted, and his scoreless inning-plus on Tuesday night actually improved his ERA over the last week to a lofty 8.10.
