It’s going to be tough to do in the American League this year and if they want to have success it’s going to be key that they get out to a strong start this year.
2019 MLB Team Previews – Texas Rangers
- Rangers American League West Odds 60/1
- Rangers American League Odds 150/1
- Rangers World Series Odds 300/1
- Jeff Mathis
- Lance Lynn
- Shelby Miller
- Jason Hammel
The Rangers didn’t make any blockbuster moves this offseason but all the moves no doubt made the team more prepared for this upcoming season.
Jeff Mathis is one of the best defensive team catchers in the game and although his bat isn’t the best this should help.
Lance Lynn also had some struggles last year but when he is on, he is a solid pitcher and they are looking for a big bounce back from him.
- Drew Robinson
- Adrian Beltre
- Doug Fister
The big loss this offseason was Adrian Beltre who decided to hang up the cleats for good. As good as he was on the field, he was even more important in the locker room.
Doug Fister was another veteran that the team moved on from, although he really struggled last year on the mound.
2019 Texas Rangers Predictions: Projected Lineup:
- CF Delino DeShields (R)
- DH Shin-Soo Choo (L)
- RF Nomar Mazara (L)
- SS Elvis Andrus (R)
- 2B Rougned Odor (L)
- LF Joey Gallo (L)
- 3B Patrick Wisdom
- 1B Ronald Guzman (L)
- C Jeff Mathis (R)
There isn’t a lot of star power in this lineup but most of the players have been here before and that should help this team.
The big question for this lineup is how many will be left after the trade deadline. If they struggle early don’t be surprised if they are sent on their way to a new club.
2019 Texas Rangers Predictions: Projected Rotation:
- LHP Mike Minor
- RHP Lance Lynn
- LHP Drew Smyly
- RHP Edinson Volquez
- RHP Shelby Miller
This is a made over pitching staff from last year and how much success they have hinges on the play of Lance Lynn and Shelby Miller.
If they both can just be solid that should go a long way.
2019 New York Yankees Predictions: Projected Closer:
- RHP Jose Leclerc
Jose Leclerc was part-time closer last year and had some success in the role notching 12 saves but now the role has grown.
2019 Texas Rangers Predictions:
I really think this team could go either way this year and although I don’t think they will make the playoffs I think they will at least be competitive this year.
Look for this team to finish right around 80 wins and for this team to be one step closer to getting back to the playoffs next year.
