Big springs crucial for several Rangers

The Texas Rangers will open spring training with 58 players vying for the 25 spots. While all 58 are looking to make some sort of impression, big springs are more important for some than others. Here's a look five players who need to have big springs to prove they belong in Arlington. OF Julio Borbon Remember when Borbon looked like he could be a fixture in the Texas outfield...

Top five Rangers spring training storylines

The Texas Rangers will begin working out in Surprise, Ariz., next week in what they hope is the beginning of the process to returning to the World Series for a third-consecutive year. There will be a lot of eyes on the Rangers this year because of the moves the team has made on and off the field since losing Game 7 of the World Series to St. Louis last year. Here are the top five...

Player Profile #33: Adrian Beltre | 3B | TEX

So 2011 was a weird year for Adrian Beltre‘s fantasy owners. First they suffered through a disappointing .259 batting average and not so bad 14 home runs through the first 82 games. Then he turned his season around in July hitting .358 with six home runs in 18 games before getting injured and missing all of August. He then returned in September and hit the ball with an authority...

Dallas columnist evokes race in the case of Josh Hamilton

File it under “didn’t see this one coming”. Mac Engel of the Star-Telegram has suggested that race may be a key factor as to why Josh Hamilton is continuously forgiven for his indiscretions off the baseball field. Of course, he does this in the middle of Black History month, and almost even admits to that. The race card may be an easy out for a column, but here we sit in the...

Rangers might still trade Uehara

SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Depending on who was asked, the Texas Rangers' attempts to trade Koji Uehara could be to free up money to add Roy Oswalt, or to add Michael Gonzalez, or to trade a player who doesn't seem happy to be with the two-time American League champions.

Player Profile #36: Elvis Andrus | SS | TEX

I’ll be the first to admit, if Elvis Andrus didn’t play shortstop he wouldn’t be worth a draft pick this high, but given his position and skill set you can definitely justify it. He dominates in two categories (R, SB) and has the ability to contribute solid in another (BA). His xBA last season was .299, or 20 points lower than his actual batting average. He’s still only...

Fans' guide to Texas Rangers spring training

AL West Preview

Texas Rangers Strengths: Simply put, offense. The best offense in the league when healthy, the Rangers’ offense is good enough to keep them in any game. The pitching has improved as well, rotation and bullpen, making this one of the most complete teams in the majors. Weaknesses: Injuries have plagued key players such as Josh Hamilton and Adrian Beltre. The bullpen could also be...
