The Texas Rangers haven't had the best Spring Training when you factor in success, and wins, but that doesn't mean they have players that don't have individual success.

In their last game against the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday, they had some success hitting the ball, especially from some guys that needed to show their bats a bit more than maybe others on the squad.

Here are three hitters who did their job against the Royals on Wednesday:

Three great Texas Rangers hitters vs. Royals

Sandy Leon, C

Leon is entering his 12th season in the MLB and has well over 500 games accumulated throughout his career. He's a savvy veteran that the Rangers could use, or any team, for that matter, and he showed that with his hitting on Wednesday.

Leon had two hits in two at-bats, going perfect on the day. He was also able to bring a run in, contributing to the five runs the Rangers scored. Leon didn't swing at many pitches outside of the zone and was pretty disciplined too. Would love to see this consistently.

Yoshi Tsutsugo, 1B

Yoshi is on his fourth squad in four years, and a large part of that is because he has the skill, but is often times inconsistent. The Ranges are hoping they can find a good backup, or bench payer, in Yoshi for the 2023 season, and what he showed against the Royals is definitely a start. He scored two runs on one hit and one walk.

Justin Foscue, 2B

Foscue is a high-ranked prospect for the Rangers and was picked 14th overall by Texas in the 2020 MLB Draft. The Rangers have wanted to see some growth and development from him, and I think they have seen just that.

Foscue went 1/1 on the day, but, had two runs batted in, helping the Rangers get the win. He has come a long way in those two years, and entering into his third we could see a huge improvement in a few things he does at the plate.
