Mazara makes the All-Star team
Nomar Mazara is entering his fourth full season as a big leaguer. He’s played well each year; however, he hasn’t taken the leap that many hoped he would by now. When I say leap, I mean a transition from solid MLB player to All-Star MLB player.
The Texas Rangers need an All-Star or two to emerge from their team. Their lone representative in last year’s ASG was 35-year-old Shin-Soo Choo. Sadly, no member of the Rangers was mentioned in MLB Network’s top 100 players entering 2019, which does not bode well for All-Star predictions.
That’s not good. If they really want to come out of this rebuild on top, they’ll need a superstar position player. Gallo and Odor show promise, but Mazara is the Ranger with the highest offensive ceiling. He has the talent to hit for a good average, pop 30 homers and command a lineup.
2019 will be the year of Nomar Mazara. He stays healthy and puts together an All-Star season.
