The Texas Rangers have found themselves in a losing skid that could force them to be sellers at the trade deadline this season. Who could get dealt in July?
Flashback to a couple of weeks ago and the Texas Rangers were trending in the right direction. They sat in a Wild Card spot, were suprisingly closing in on the AL West leading Houston Astros and sat well above the .500 mark. They looked likely to buy at this year’s trade deadline, although buying on a budget, and were far from the sell-mode many expected entering 2019.
Fast forward to now, and they find themselves in the midst of a losing skid. Texas has won just 1 of their last 7 games and 4 of their last 10 games. The Rangers have dropped out of the Wild Card, sitting 3 games back of the Indians and are a 1.5 games back of the A’s for 2nd in the division. That all raises the question, will Texas decide to sell and continue rebuilding their farm system before this season’s deadline. If they do decide to trade away players, who could be available for deals this month?
