This offseason, there was little chance of any significant addition impacting shortstop and that expectation stayed true to form. Despite Logan Forsythe’s contract expiring, Texas has a number of players who can fill that role if Andrus misses out for whatever reason.
The only addition that could have impact at the Major League level was the signing of Matt Duffy who inked a minor league contract with a big league camp invite in Spring Training. Duffy has the ability to play all around the infield dirt including shortstop. If he finds a way to make the Major League roster to start the season, he could fill in on an intermittent basis as needed.
