Texas Rangers top free agent options at third base

The Rangers used Brock Holt and Charlie Culberson at third base for most starts in 2021.  The future of third base is Josh Jung.

Any option outside the organization will be very expensive and possibly not an upgrade over Jung.  If the Rangers could sign one of the top third basemen for 1-2 years, this would allow Jung to get more seasoning before he is promoted to the Rangers full-time.
