RUNS SCORED:

When Adrian Beltre scores his 425th run with the Texas Rangers he will be ranked 15th, tying Dean Palmer. Beltre already has 344 runs and only needs 81 more to do so. To tie the Texas Rangers 9th all-time leader Frank Howard (544), Elvis Andrus (504) needs just 40 runs scored.

HITS:

Andrus needs 101 hits to tie Buddy Bell (1060) for 11th all-time leader. Beltre (715) will tie Ed Brinkman for 15th with his 868th hit in a Rangers uniform.

DOUBLES:

Adrian Beltre and Elvis Andrus are in a close race to tie 14th all-time leader Pete O’Brien (161) for doubles. Andrus (142) leads Beltre (131) by merely 11 doubles. This should be a fun competition (friendly, of course) to see it play out through the season.

TRIPLES:

Leonys Martin is short 5 triples before he is ranked 17th all-time leader, tying Bump Wills and Frank Howard with 20. In order to tie for 3rd with Chuck Hinton for 30 triples, Elvis Andrus simply needs to hit two triples by the end of the season. I believe Andrus is more than capable of achieving this.

HOME RUNS:

Adrian Beltre is 7 home runs shy of tying the 15th Texas Rangers all-time leaders Pete Incaviglia and Toby Harrah with 124. Considering Beltre hit 19 in 2014, I see him going well above 124 homers this season.

RBI:

When Beltre drives in his 397th run he will tie Will Clark as the 20th all-time RBI leader. But, if he can hit 54 RBI he will rank 18th alongside Dean Palmer.

STOLEN BASES:

When Elvis Andrus swipes his 8th stolen base of the season – and let’s face it, we know he will – it will set a Texas Rangers record-high 200 stolen bases.

Leonys Martin currently has 70 stolen bases, and in all likelihood tie the 15th (Ivan Rodriguez, 81), 13th (Michael Young, 89) and 8th (Tom Goodwin, 93) all-time leaders.
