Adrian Beltre: Beltre’s been in Arlington for seven years. He’s been in the leagues for 20 seasons. Last season, Beltre broke several records. His biggest accomplishment is reaching the 3,000-hit milestone, becoming the first player born in the Dominican Republic to accomplish this. Beltre is certainly the leader in the clubhouse. He’s a positive influence on young players. Even at 38, he’s still playing good baseball and he’s always been exciting. The one thing to worry is his health as he did have an injury bug last season.
Elvis Andrus: Andrus’ put up career-high numbers this season. Andrus was healthy and explosive this season. He had the kind of season Rangers fans had been hoping he’d have for a long time. Andrus has been in Texas for a long time and he’s come a long way in his career. This season, Andrus took his skills and talent farther than anybody could have imagined. Next season, he might take it farther and surprise the world again.
