An Anxious Trading Season
The Rangers will be sellers this trade season. Actually, they already made one trade. They don’t exactly have the marquee players that an underperforming team would like to have in selling situations, but they have enough to make some considerable moves.
Cole Hamels has been pitching very well of late. In all honesty, the Texas Ranges are rooting for Cole Hamels’ success as much for winning purposes as for trade value. He will be the team’s biggest chest piece as long as he stays healthy and stays on track on the mound.
Other trade possibilities include Adrian Beltre, Jake Diekman and Elvis Andrus. Plus, the second tier of trade possibilities in Joey Gallo, Keone Kela, Mike Minor, Jurickson Profar and Bartolo Colon. As you can see, just about everyone on a roster will come up in trade rumors when a team is in a position like the Texas Rangers.
We’ll see what happens soon enough. In the meantime, Rangers fans can watch the young stars with anticipation and the trade bait with curiosity. Feel free to engage in the many trade rumor articles that will be published at a rapid fire pace come early June.
