Texas Rangers all-time WAR leaders: Rafael Palmeiro

Rafael Palmeiro will forever be a Texas Rangers legend.

Even if steroid accusations have all but eliminated his chances of making the Hall of Fame despite prolific numbers, there’s no denying the type of player he was for the Rangers.

A member of the 500 homerun club, Palmeiro was one of the game’s elite power hitters from the mid-80s to the early 2000s.

He also sported one of the best moustaches in franchise history, too.

Palmeiro spent 10 seasons in Arlington, hitting .290 with 321 homeruns and 1,039 RBIs with the Rangers.

He falls into second place in all-time leaders in franchise history with a 44.6 WAR, a figure that makes sense given the tremendous output he managed to provide with his bat.
