Free Agent Signings

The Texas Rangers were more active on the trade market this winter, but don’t sleep on some of their free agent signings.

They made good, quality signings that will not only affect them in the present, but possibly the future, assuming the players play to their potentials.

Texas Rangers signed LF David Dahl

David Dahl was an All-Star in 2019, only to be non-tendered the following offseason.

GM Chris Young and the Rangers jumped on the opportunity, bringing him in on a one year deal, worth $3 million.

Dahl is under club control for another three seasons, and could be a key piece in the Rangers next contending team.

He brings a solid glove to the Texas outfield, and the offensive ability will only boost a struggling Rangers offense.

The only kicker is Dahl’s health has been a hindrance for him over the years, so we’ll have to see how well he feels heading into and out of spring training.

It was an incredible signing, at a great price, and gives the Texas Rangers another piece to build around long term, assuming he stays healthy.
