Texas Rangers left fielder Delino DeShields went airborne in the top of the fifth inning to both rob Houston Astros outfielder Derek Fisher of extra bases, while also simultaneously preserving a run for starter Andrew Cashner.

That’s highway robbery from a player that was once the eighth overall pick in the 2010 MLB Amateur Draft by Houston. DeShields never appeared on the major league roster with the Astros, nabbed in the Rule 5 Draft by Texas in 2014. He has spent the past three years as a member of the Rangers.
