Texas Rangers’ DH: Adolis García

It’s hard to believe that instant replay has screwed anyone else over more than Adolis García since it has been implemented.

However, I imagine that García will take the result he got the night after, hitting a go-ahead two-run homer in extra innings against the defending AL champions.

Nonetheless, García has been putting up ridiculous numbers since spring training, and has been opening the eyes of the Rangers’ coaching staff since they acquired him from St. Louis.

He’s been as aggressive as anyone on the active roster, and assuming García’s adjustments are for real and here to stay, we may be looking at the next Nelson Cruz-type here.

We’ve talked about it time-and-time again, but there are always late bloomers in this game, and If Adolis García can tap into that potential, he’ll be around for a while.

He hit .375 this spring with three long balls, 13 driven in and two walks over 22 games. However, he was consistently making hard outs and shooting the ball to the opposite field.

If he can continue that string of success like we’ve seen in his first couple games back, there Is no doubt he’ll be with the team the remainder of the year.

He has a cannon for an arm, above-average speed and good power, plus he’s worked on putting the ball in play. He could be a major force behind Joey Gallo in this Rangers’ lineup.

We’ll have to see what happens when the minor league season begins, because it doesn’t look like Adolis García is going anywhere and could force Leody Taveras or Eli White back to the minor leagues.
