Grading GM Chris Young’s first offseason with the Texas Rangers
Texas Rangers signed RHP Mike Foltynewicz
Another controllable starting pitcher was added to the mix just a few weeks ago when the Rangers signed Foltynewicz to a one-year, $2 million deal.
Much like Dahl, Folty has battled injuries, but when he is healthy he has ace-like stuff.
Foltynewicz was DFA’d by the Braves early in the 2020 season after a rough outing against the Tampa Bay Rays.
The former All-Star sat at their alternate site for the remainder of the season, and was eventually let go this offseason.
If he can reclaim some of his 2018 form, Mike Foltynewicz will be a solid addition to the Rangers rotation this season.
He is also under control through 2023, so we could be seeing Folty in Arlington for several more years.
Anytime you have the chance to add a veteran pitcher of his caliber, you have to jump on it.
The Rangers did, and they wrapped up their rotation with a good one.
