3 players that make the Texas Rangers’ DH dilemma a good one to have
With the emergence of Adolis García and the returns of Khris Davis and Willie Calhoun coming, the Texas Rangers will have a complicated rotation of DH options.
Adolis García has become one of the most exciting Texas Rangers to watch over his first few games of the 2021 season, leading to speculation over who will get a majority of the DH at-bats.
With Willie Calhoun ramping up at Round Rock and Khris Davis right around the corner, the Texas Rangers are going to have to make some tough decisions in the upcoming weeks.
First and foremost, I don’t see a plausible solution to keeping all three on the roster. Assuming they did, and with the players on the 25-man roster currently, the Rangers would be looking at seven active outfielders.
If any or all of these guys make the roster, one of Eli White or Leody Taveras will be sent back to minors. If they opt to stick with the youngsters, Davis could see a designation or straight release.
Right now though, we’re going to make a case for three candidates.
