Current System Status

Catcher: With Pierzynski likely only around for now, we can’t depend on Soto/Chirinos for long if we want to contend. With Alfaro a few years away it’s a slight concern due to not much else in impact players. Possible target in draft due to Catcher depth this year

1B/3B: While Beltre/Berkman are good, they won’t be around forever. Moreland looks to be decent and between Joey Gallo and Ronald Guzman there’s a lot of potential here, though Mike Olt struggles this year make it a possible target.

2B/SS: Andrus/Kinsler are locked in for the foreseeable future. Jurickson Profar, Luis Sardinas, and Rougned Odor this is definitely a strength of the Rangers and not an immediate need for the draft.

OF: Leonys Martin is just getting started in CF, but Gentry, Cruz, and Murphy are Free Agents next year is disconcerting, there’s not much impact in high minors ready to step up. Recent acquisitions Lewis Brinson, Nomar Mazara, Jairo Beras, Jamie Jarmon, and Nick Williams are all exciting tools OF but are far away from majors and high risk players. If any fast moving OF were available they’d fit nicely, but might disagree with rangers past strategy of toolsy OF.

SP: Darvish/Harrison/Holland are locked in long term with Justin Grimm, Nick Tepesch, and Alexi Ogando under team control for the foreseeable future, but Colby Lewis won’t be around long. The MLB team seems solid for now, but if anyone regresses it could be an issue. Martin Perez, Neil Ramirez, and Cody Buckel give some nice depth for now and Luke Jackson and CJ Edwards offer some nice potential in a couple years. One can never have enough pitching though.

RP: With the excess in SP the bullpen could end up filled with the overflow. With Joakim Soria to come back to join Ross, Joe Nathan, Scheppers, and Ortiz the bullpen looks solid for now and the future. In the minors Wilmer Font and Roman Mendez give a solid pairing if help is needed soon. Neftali Feliz also is an option when he regains his health.

Previous drafts seem to favor high schoolers and high ceilings over college, but college readiness would seem to fit better into the system they currently have.
