The 2017 season isn’t over yet, but we’ve seen some standout performances from some unexpected players. This could be just a glimpse of what is to come for these players on the Rangers.
The Texas Rangers offense has been led by veterans Adrian Beltre and Elvis Andrus. It’s hard to imagine either player getting better in 2018. Both have been fantastic this season, but they can’t do it all.
If the Rangers want to be leaders in the American League again they need some players to step up. That’s not saying that Beltre and Andrus are the only players doing well. Plenty of players are playing well, but some could exceed expectations in 2018.
Both outfielder Shin-Soo Choo and starter Cole Hamels have quietly put together strong campaigns. It’s been enjoyable to watch both players succeed, especially with how much the Rangers are paying them. It’s nice to know that they have earned their paychecks in 2017.
The Rangers have loaded their roster with veterans that won’t get much better than what you’re seeing in 2017. That being said there is still plenty of young players on this roster that could be looking at huge breakout campaigns in 2018.
