With more and more teams featuring offensive weapons in the middle infield, the Texas Rangers feature their own.
The second-base position is evolving in front of our eyes. Once a position that commanded strong defense without the need for offense. Now, some of the game’s best hitters reside at the position. From
42 home runs in 2016 to
216 hits, middle infielders are now expected to produce offensively as well as defensively.
With a growing emphasis on offensive output from middle infielders, the Texas Rangers have one of the brightest young stars. To go along with strong depth in the Majors, the Rangers as always feature a wide array of promising middle infield prospects.
Is second base set for years to come? Or is there a younger and brighter star waiting in the wings? With questions surrounding first base and the outfield, the Rangers and their fans can go into Spring Training feeling good about their middle infield.
