3 Texas Rangers who have increased their potential trade values

2. Martin Perez

His ERA stands at 1.60 at the time of this writing (Tuesday), which leads not only the American League, but also all of MLB.

Martin Perez has been elite for the Texas Rangers in 2022, and to say this has been unforeseen would be an understatement. He’s a near-lock to make the All-Star team representing the Rangers in Los Angeles this summer as this season’s (better) version of Kyle Gibson.

Perez is yet another veteran whom the Texas Rangers have managed to resurrect later in his career, and with his similarly cheap one-year deal for 2022, could also become attractive trade bait should the team fall south in the summer months.
