The Texas Rangers have made moves this off-season, but no superstar signings as of yet. The Rangers team looks strong heading into the 2017 season. There is still room for additions along the way though that could make the Rangers even bigger threats in the American League West.
All off-season long the Rangers have been linked to free agents Mike Napoli and Chris Carter. Both are power hitting first basemen that could do damage in their lineup. What if the Rangers are saving their money to pull off a superstar trade?
Plenty of superstar bats have been rumored to be in trade discussions all off-season. The Rangers have a good young core, but they could add another player or two. These trades would not only help them in 2017, but for years to come.
These trades will not be easy to pull off, but Jon Daniels and his crew have been magicians in the past. Most of these deals are unlikely to happen before Opening Day. The good news is that all of the players have contracts longer than 2017.
These moves will require the Rangers to part ways with some of their top talent. In the long run it is a good move and could help the organization win-now instead of waiting to see if these young prospects develop. Here are five insane trades that the Rangers could do this season.
