Good morning, folks...
T.R. Sullivan projects the Rangers’ Opening Day roster.
Evan Grant goes through the players in camp, and assesses each player’s chances of making the roster.
For some reason, Mac Engel is using C.J. Wilson’s retirement to rip the Rangers for signing Yu Darvish, saying that they would have been better off keeping Wilson rather than going after Yu. While Engel hates those fancy saber stats, its still worth noting that Yu has been worth 15.4 bWAR since coming to Texas, while C.J. had a 5.2 bWAR with the Angels.
Its also worth noting that the Rangers get an extra season from Yu for the $30 million extra Engel claims Yu wasn’t worth.
The Rangers officially announced the signing of Anthony Bass to a minor league deal.
