of new york post named the Texas Rangers as one of seven offseason winners in Major League Baseball.
The Rangers join the New York Mets, San Diego Padres, Chicago Cubs, Philadelphia Phillies, New York Yankees and Los Angeles Angels.
The Rangers have spent the offseason rebuilding their starting rotation, and New York Mets ace Jacob deGrom is the top target in the market, signing a five-year, $185 million deal just before the Winter Meetings. It was highlighted by signing the widely considered pitcher.
It was the largest pitching contract ever completed by the Rangers.
Around of the post According to the analysis, “If deGrom is more reliable as a Ranger, they may be in contention. Additionally, the contracts of Corey Seager and Marcus Semien will be more reasonably priced with this winter’s eye-opening deals.” I can see it.”
The Rangers paid Seager and Semien more than $500 million combined last offseason. The deal has led deGrom and other free-agent signings to believe they’re interested in moving to Texas.
From there, the Rangers acquired former Dodgers starter Andrew Heaney on a two-year, $25 million contract. I signed the contract and was able to pay out my 3rd year besting option and a $63 million bonus.
Before the spending spike, the Rangers traded starter/relief Colby Allard to Atlanta for starter Jake Odorridge, who is in an option year of his contract. The Rangers were able to convince Altanta to take his $10 million out of Odrizzi’s $12.5 million option year.
Since the start of the offseason, the Rangers have said they are interested in the middle-order bat and have room for either a left fielder or designated hitter to be traded or free agency.
