It seems the Texas Rangers are zeroing in on Nick Castellanos and Marcell Ozuna as their top options remaining this offseason. Which one should they choose?
With each passing day, our dreams of Nolan Arenado manning the hot corner for the Texas Rangers in 2020 continues to fade. It looks more and more like the Cardinals sit in the pole position to get a deal done with the Rockies for the elite third baseman. Despite that, the Rangers are not without alternatives. They’ve already brought in some insurance at third base by signing Todd Frazier and they continue to look at impact right-handed bats to add to an improving lineup.
The two names that are most connected with the Rangers right now are Nick Castellanos and Marcell Ozuna. Both outfielders. Both right-handed bats. Both players who can make significant contributions to the Texas lineup. Texas has been reported as a finalist for both players with the Rangers battling the Cardinals for Ozuna and among a few options for Castellanos. But if Texas is choosing just one, which should they go with?
