3B Kevin Kouzmanoff and 1B Carlos Pena- 2014 Texas Rangers
There was not much positivity surrounding the 2014 season after the Texas Rangers went 67-95 and dealt with injury after injury to star players like Adrian Beltre.
Beltre’s injury paved the way for Kevin Kouzmanoff who hit safely in his first 10 games with the Rangers.
Kouzmanoff only appeared in 13 games for Texas, but did hit .362 with two homers and 10 RBIs.
Carlos Pena also made his return back to Texas, who drafted him 10th overall in the 1998 MLB Amateur Draft. Pena struggled in his short time in Texas, hitting .136 over 18 games played. Carlos Pena became a mainstay in the Rays offense from 2007-2010 and again in 2012. He was named an All Star during the 2009 season, as well.
Honorable Mentions: LHP Joe Saunders, RHP Roman Mendez, and catcher J.P. Arencibia.
