Player 3: Nathaniel Lowe

One final player who will have an impact is Nathaniel Lowe. The Rangers' first baseman has had an up-and-down career in Texas. He was the only Texas infielder not to make the all-star team.

However, don't be fooled. He is an under the radar player who has plenty of upsize.

Last season, he won the silver slugger award for first baseman, beating out players such as Vladimir Guerrero Jr. He is not your average slugger, but does just enough when called upon.

During the 2022 season, he batted .302 hitting 27 home runs and 76 RBIs. This year he has 14 homers and 63 RBIs. His numbers have taken a minor dip this season.

However, he is one player you never want to count out. In July, he played a significant role in keeping the team's playoff hopes afloat. He brought in 14 RBIs, along with 17 runs and seven doubles.

His offensive impact could be the one thing that turns Texas into a World Series contender. They already know what they are getting from players Seager, Marcus Semien, and Jung. Lowe is a different story. As mentioned, he is the one non-all-star.

These next couple of months will be his opportunity to prove his worth.

If Texas can get the Lowe who has had multiple hit streaks, then things should work out just fine.
