Texas Rangers: Three Bold Predictions for Spring Training
Jose Trevino is coming into camp as the odd-man out, but his presence will be seen. By the end of camp, the Rangers will be forced to make a move behind the dish.
Jose Trevino has grown into a fan favorite over the past two seasons since his debut. From the walkoff single on Father’s Day after losing his father and having a son of his own to the off the field work with charities in Arlington and Frisco, he is the definition of what it means to be a Texas Ranger. This spring, Trevino will put it all together and will force the Ranger’s hand in the catching department. Robinson Chirinos’ reunion sets him in stone, so who goes? Jeff Mathis. Jon Daniels said that Chirinos and Mathis will be the two catchers on the roster come Opening Day. I don’t think so. I predict that Jose Trevino’s bat comes to life, as well as his above average defense, and he becomes a Texas Ranger permanently. No more getting optioned to Nashville, he’s here to stay.
