While spring training is about the battles, it’s also about getting the everyday players more reps to get ready for opening day. The Rangers are in a fortunate position to have a stellar young core that will continue to develop together for another year. The following positions, barring injury, are your guaranteed starters.
Shin Soo-Choo looks to have another strong season like last year when he had a 52-game on-base streak.
Ronald Guzman, aka The Condor, is the Rangers’ hopeful long-term 1st baseman. He’ll look to put it all together in his 2nd big league season.
Rougned Odor looks to bring back the power in his swing and continue with the hot glove as he’s coming off of a Gold Glove finalist year.
Elvis Andrus embarks on his 11th year as a Ranger.
Slugger Joey Gallo will take left field and will hopefully hit another 40 bombs and pick the average up a little bit.
“The Big Chill” Nomar Mazara looks to his most important year yet. Could it be the year he emerges into stardom?
