Player development can be just as important as free agent signings. Here are a few Texas Rangers who could take a leap next season.
We all love the thrill of the chase. Checking Twitter every hour becomes a habit this year, hoping the Texas Rangers signed a franchise altering free agent. And while there’s nothing like your favorite baseball team landing a star, I find it way more satisfying when a homegrown player turns into a star themselves.
There’s nothing like watching a young player make improvements to their game and turn weaknesses into strengths. You get to see them overcome their early career struggles and become national stars. It’s why I’m usually unwilling to give up on a player that came up through the Rangers’ farm system, sometimes to a fault.
With that in mind, here are four Rangers that I think will have a breakthrough season next year. If you have someone else in mind, comment below.
