The Texas Rangers aren’t playing as well as they should in 2022, especially not after going on a massive spending spree during the off-season that saw them bring in some elite talent. But here we are in mid-May, and the team has been disappointing overall, save for some brief encouraging stretches here and there.
It hasn’t been all bad for the Rangers, however, as Texas has gotten some decent production from some of the less heralded players on their roster in 2022.
Here are four pleasant Texas Rangers surprises in the early going of this season.
4 pleasant surprises for the Texas Rangers so far this season
1. Brad Miller
Signed to a two-year deal in February, Brad Miller has been everything the Texas Rangers could have hoped for and then some.
On the year, he’s got five home runs and a .721 OPS in 72 at-bats while displaying versatility on the diamond. Not too shabby.
Miller might be the best signing the Rangers made this winter, and that’s saying something because Texas also brought in superstars Corey Seager and Marcus Semien. Sometimes, the best moves are the ones you’d never think to appreciate.
Brad Miller certainly falls into that category, and he’s been a pleasant surprise early in this season.
