AJM's Guess at the Rangers' Opening Day Roster

New, comments

Okay, at this point, I'm going to throw out there my guess as to what the Opening Day roster is going to look like.

There are a few caveats here...while it looks like the Rangers are probably done in the way of making major moves, we could see a catcher or a bullpen arm come in and be added to the mix.  This also doesn't take into account the reality that there will probably be at least one someone on my list that tweaks something in spring training and starts the year on the d.l.  And there's also the possibility that someone could end up getting moved...Brandon McCarthy, for example, has been the subject of trade rumors this winter, and depending on how the pitching staff shakes out, he could end up getting moved in March.

Rich Harden

Scott Feldman
