Texas Rangers: Projecting 1B/DH scenarios for 2021

Texas Rangers 1B/DH Scenario 3: 1B Guzman, DH Lowe, Calhoun on the bubble
This scenario might actually give the Texas Rangers their best defensive configuration.
Guzman’s glove is highly rated at the first base position, while Lowe certainly has room for improvement in that area.
However, Lowe’s bat is brimming with power potential, an asset the Rangers traded specifically for.
So why not put your best defender in the field with Guzman while retaining Lowe’s immense bat for the lineup by slotting him in at DH?
On the other hand, this scenario would likely spell doom for Willie Calhoun, a situation which the Texas Rangers would probably like to avoid, as he’s still young and ascending in his brief MLB career to this point.
Though I would be remiss if I didn’t at least admit there is potential with this outcome.
