Texas Rangers chase Big Bat in Free Agency

The Texas Rangers need to start pitching. That is clear. But the front offense has also made it clear that there is interest in a medium order bat.

The new universal designated hitter is preparing the Rangers to make a try for a free-agent hitter who could fit into their batting order as a full-time DH without having to sit that player when they travel to National League parks .

Additionally, the Rangers can do so without disrupting the power structure of their current batting order. Four Rangers had at least 25 homers a season ago – shortstop Corey Seager, second baseman Marcus Semien, outfielder Adolis García and first baseman Nathaniel Lowe.
