Texas Rangers: Seven stars of interest in the 2020 free agent class
It’s never too early to look ahead in free agency, especially for a rebuilding team like the Texas Rangers. 2020 will present a suitable FA class for Texas.
Since expectations for 2019 are moderate at best, why not take a peek at the 2020 MLB free agent class? After all, 2020 is the year the Texas Rangers are supposed to return to relevance, right?
For a rebuilding team, the Rangers are rather well off. Their second baseman and shortstop are under contract long-term, and nearly every other position player has years of arbitration ahead. In addition, they’ve done a nice job of loading their farm system with promising pitching prospects.
Eyeing 2020, Texas needs an ace and a showstopper at third base. Successfully signing each would take miles off their path back to contention. The good news is that year’s free agent class will contain perhaps the best third baseman in the game, plus a handful of established aces.
Frankly, the timing will be perfect for the Rangers. The rebuild should be behind them, and they’ll be moving into their brand-new stadium. As long as they are ready to spend, 2020 could be a very entertaining season.
Who will be the Texas Rangers’ top targets next offseason?
