Texas Rangers Opening Day starting rotation (5)

  • Nathan Eovaldi
  • Dane Dunning
  • Jon Gray
  • Andrew Heaney
  • Cody Bradford

It would seem as though the idea of bringing Jordan Montgomery back to the Lone Star State is a bit of pipe dream. But even without the lefty, the Rangers are sitting pretty with their top five pitchers.

Eovaldi will likely be Bochy's Opening Day starter and will be followed by some combination of Gray, Dunning, and Heaney. Bradford is in line to secure that fifth and final spot in the rotation.

After a rocking 2023 season in the minor leagues, the Rangers are hopeful that Jack Leiter figures things out this season. The former first-round pick is a non-roster invitee this spring, but unlikely to be part of the Rangers Opening Day roster. Texas is also banking on Max Scherzer, Jacob deGrom, and Tyler Mahle returning later this season.
