The free agent market is off to a running start and rumors are running rampant as players try to beat out the anticipated lockout. The Texas Rangers seem to be involved in just about every major free agent as well. They’ll have their pick from the pack as well, since they will be burning cash this winter, unlike some other teams.
I’ll be taking a look at the top targets for the Rangers this off-season. This isn’t a ranking based purely on talent, but rather a bit of a format for the off-season. It should be used in a dynamic way, with plan A targets towards the top. The biggest factor is the impact they’ll have on the team immediately, as well as the on the future plans.
10 free agent signings that would have the most impact for the Texas Rangers
1. Corey Seager, Carlos Correa, Trevor Story
Yea, this one may seem a bit of a cop-out by putting the 3 top short stops together but the plan for free agency starts with one of these guys. You can argue why each one should be the priority signing but the fact remains, one (maybe 2?) of these guys SHOULD be a Ranger in 2022. This is where you find your corner stone athlete to build upon. The emergence from the rebuild starts here with one of these studs.
