Texas Rangers roster projection: Catchers (2)

This position group appears to be much more straightforward in terms of projecting how it will look come the regular season.

Starter- Jose Trevino

Backup- Jonah Heim

Trevino became the starter in Texas late last season and performed admirably in that capacity, meaning he should hold the edge in regards to retaining that role going into 2021.

As for Heim, he comes to Texas as a highly-touted catching prospect from Oakland, who acquired SS Elvis Andrus.

Heim will likely beat out fellow catching prospect Sam Huff for the backup position to begin the season, as Huff will be slated to begin the season in the minors.

That said, the Texas Rangers seem to be in great shape at this position now and going forward.
