TR recently posted an article about the diversity on the Ranger's team. It was just last week that I posted on LSB about the Rangers being the "Most Unrelatable Team", and it's been at least two years that I have been hoping one of the local writers would do a story on the Rangers ethnic diversity.
This is what I recently posted about the Rangers as the Most Unrelatable Team:
So, I finally compiled the number of non-US born players on each team. I didn’t use the full 25-man roster, since they aren’t set, just the current non-bench players: 8 position players, 1 DH, 5 rotation, 7 bullpen. So, out of 21 players, below is the number for each team of non-US born players.
7, Giants, Royals, White Sox
6, Blue Jays, Dodgers, Mariners, Marlins, Mets, Pirates, Red Sox, Tigers
5, Diamondbacks, Yankees
4, Angels, Astros, Braves, Cardinals, Indians, Rays, Reds
3, Phillies, Twins
2, National, Orioles, Padres
168 out of 630 spots are taken by non-US born players (26.6%).
