Texas Rangers Free Agent Debate: Decisions, Decisions
Do either of these guys have a leg up on the other? Maybe not. However, if we’re playing the role of the Rangers front office, I’m taking Seiya Suzuki.
Castellanos, while proven at the game’s highest level, will command a lot more money and years than Suzuki that the Texas Rangers may not be willing to dish out this offseason.
Suzuki is younger, more athletic and has expressed an interest in joining the Rangers.
However, his inexperience against major leaguers can be concerning and could be a bust. That’s where Castellanos’ presence in the young Texas lineup would play a huge role. He’s played with some of the game’s best hitters in Miguel Cabrera and J.D. Martinez, and could bring that Hall of Fame experience to the Lone Star State.
No decisions will be made for a while as Major League Baseball and the Player’s Association figure out the new CBA, giving the Texas Rangers ample time to weigh all of their options.
Who would you choose? Let us know @NolanWritinFS and @PTylerHenderson on Twitter.
Stay tuned, because the next installment will feature two prominent southpaws.
