Texas Rangers all-time WAR leaders: Buddy Bell

A three-time All-Star and six-time Gold Glove winner for the Texas Rangers, Buddy Bell is in the cleanup spot for the Rangers all-time WAR leaders.

Over eight seasons with the Texas Rangers, Bell played elite defense at the hot corner, and not to mention hitting .293 over those years.

He also collected 1,060 hits, 499 RBIs and 87 homers with the Texas Rangers.

He finished his Texas Rangers career with a 36.3 WAR.

In an era that didn’t see much winning for the franchise, Buddy Bell was a clear bright spot and reason to watch the team during the late 1970s and 1980s.

It makes sense, therefore, that his WAR rates highly given his standout performances on bad teams.
