The Rangers start the 2021 season in Kansas City on April Fool’s Day, playing on Thursday, April 1, and then on Saturday and Sunday, April 3-4, in their first series of the season. Texas then has their home opener on April 5 as part of a three game set against the Toronto Blue Jays from April 5-7, followed by a three game set between the San Diego Padres and the Rangers in Arlington April 9-11.
The schedule appears to have a pretty decent balance — the longest road trip is 10 games at the start of the second half, immediately after the All Star Break, and I don’t think there’s a particularly bad or grueling stretch of road games at any point.
This assumes, of course, that we are at a place in April, 2021, where baseball can be played. Let’s hope that is the case.
