Texas Rangers third base options: Sign Todd Frazier or Asdrubal Cabrera

Reunion, anyone?

The Texas Rangers could certainly go this route to fill their third base vacancy in 2021.

Having familiarity with both Todd Frazier and Asdrubal Cabrera is surely convenient, knowing you can rely on them to give you innings and stability at third base.

Cabrera spent 2019 with the Rangers before being released and ultimately joining that season’s champion in Washington.

Frazier spent half of 2020 in Texas before being traded to the New York Mets.

Neither player will offer up much in terms of offense at this point, with their defense not much better.

Fortunately, the Rangers won’t need either one of these longtime infielders for long, as Josh Jung waits in the wings.

Both Frazier and Cabrera can serve as respectable stopgaps until then, though.

Additionally, either can likely be had on a minors deal with invites to Spring Training.

This scenario won’t generate much excitement among fans, but it wouldn’t be right to prematurely rush Jung into big league playing time, either.

Therefore, don’t be surprised if you see one of Frazier or Cabrera in Ranger red, white or blue once again in 2021.
