Texas Rangers roster projection: DH (1)

This position is intriguing, as the Rangers theoretically have two options for it in Willie Calhoun and recently acquired Khris Davis.

It feels like Texas would like to give Calhoun the best chance to seize the starting DH position, given that he’s talented, still young, and doesn’t have many other alternatives for playing other positions around the diamond.

However, we expect Davis to give a solid effort knowing that a change of scenery could help him get back to his old crushing ways.

Ultimately, I can only see the Rangers carrying one DH into the season, as it is somewhat of a luxury to carry two, particularly if you’re a rebuilding squad as well.

And I believe Willie Calhoun will be the one to emerge with the job.
