3 Rangers who could lose their 40-man roster spot to Wyatt Langford

Wyatt Langford climbed the Minor League ladder quickly last season after being drafted by the Texas Rangers. Langford showed why he was promoted fast during spring training this year. There is a possibility the Rangers might add him to the Opening Day roster this year. Here are three Rangers who could end up without a roster spot if Langford continues to shine in Surprise, Arizona.

3 Rangers who could lose roster spot to Wyatt Langford: Leody Taveras

Leody Taveras is the last player who could lose his roster spot to Langford. The Rangers would have to trade Taveras to add Langford to the roster, but I'm sure a team would take a flyer on him. This would allow Carter to move back to center field and allow Langford to have left field. Taveras' base running helped the Rangers win the World Series last year. However, having Langford's bat in the lineup could help the Rangers mask the pitching woes expected this season.

It would be nice to retain these three players and add Langford. However, if Langford were to finish spring training strong and not make the roster, some fans would certainly be left questioning the move by Bruce Bochy and the front office.

This is a great situation to be in as World Series Champions, and I'm sure other teams are jealous of the Rangers right now. The future is bright for the Rangers, even if Langford begins the season down in Triple-A with the Round Rock Express.
