Figure Out Your Long-Term Plans in the Outfield
The Rangers know they have this problem and 2019 is the year to do something about it. Right now Texas has a logjam of outfielders at the Major League level and in their minor league system. Texas needs to choose between Joey Gallo, Nomar Mazara and Willie Calhoun and ensure that the players they stick with get ample playing time.
At this point, delaying the inevitable can only backfire on Texas. If Joey Gallo is your best option in right field, it’s time to move Mazara. If you don’t think Calhoun fits defensively and only works as a DH, it’s time to move him on to. Texas has to figure this out and get their core set as they move through this period of transition and rebuild.
