For the moment, the Texas Rangers' roster appears to be in really good shape in both the short-term as well as the long-term. They have key positions locked down by studs like Corey Seager, Marcus Semien, Jacob deGrom (when healthy), and Nathan Eovaldi for the foreseeable future. While things haven't gone great for Texas the last week or so, there is still a lot of cause for optimism with this club.
As the 2023 season winds down, it is important to start looking to the future and specifically look at how the Rangers' prospects are doing. Free agency is going to inevitably result in the loss of some players and it is a mortal lock that the Rangers will be aggressive buyers once the offseason comes, but some help for the roster is going to have to come from within the organization. Fortunately, Texas does have some guys that should be able to help.
Here are 4 Texas Rangers prospects that could help the team in 2024
With the Rangers' position player core being pretty much set going into next season, most (but not all) of the attention of this list is going to be on the pitching side. Things could obviously change dramatically with a key injury or a guy falling off a cliff next season, but the pitching staff seems to be where most of opportunities in 2024 on the big league roster should be.
Also, the cutoff for consideration is minor leaguers at Double-A or higher. One of the guys at the lower levels could go wild and rocket to the big leagues, but no one stands out as super likely to do that other than Wyatt Langford and his strong start to his pro career still doesn't point to him debuting before 2025.
Let's take a look at 4 Texas Rangers prospects that could help the big league club in 2024.
