Rangers Mainly Focused On Improving Offense

Texas GM Jon Daniels has hosted multiple organizational meetings to shape the Rangers’ offseason plans. The Rangers’ primary goal is to reload offensively, especially in left field and at designated hitter.
“We’re more or less telling clubs that, in the short term, we need more on the offensive side,” Daniels said.
Daniels also confirmed the Rangers are willing to discuss their middle infielders, which includes shortstop Elvis Andrus, second baseman Ian Kinsler and utility player Jurickson Profar from the Major League team, and shortstop Luis Sardinas and second baseman Rougned Odor from within the system.
On the other hand, the Rangers go into the offseason with what appears to be a set pitching staff, with a rotation of Yu Darvish, Derek Holland, Matt Harrison, Martin Perez and Alexi Ogando, so pitching is not going to be as much of an issue for the Rangers.
