Texas Rangers Roster
- AL West
- Globe Life Field
Texas Rangers first baseman Nathaniel Lowe has been a fine option in the middle of the order this season. Unfortunately, the Rangers don't have many reliable bats so Lowe doesn't get many chances to drive in runs. Despite that, he continues to do his part and hit for a reliable batting average. On Sunday, Lowe went 1-for-4 with a double in the 7-2 loss to the Chicago White Sox. He is hitting .261 with 15 home runs and 68 RBI this season. Sadly, he likely won't be anything more than an AL-only or deep league option.
Texas Rangers infielder Isiah Kiner-Falefa has quietly put together a respectable campaign in 2021. He has been a fine option for this team near the top of the order all season long. On Sunday, he went 2-for-3 with two stolen bases and an RBI in the 7-2 loss to the Chicago White Sox. The fact Kiner-Falefa has catcher eligibility makes him relevant in fantasy leagues. He'll be an afterthought if that is taken away next season. He is a decent contact hitter, but doesn't offer much outside of that in terms of fantasy production.
Texas Rangers starting pitcher Jordan Lyles struggled to slow down the Chicago White Sox offense on Sunday. He went 3 2/3 innings, eight hits allowed, five earned runs, three walks, and three strikeouts in the 7-2 loss. It was another frustrating outing to add onto an already below average campaign for Lyles. He'll take a 9-12 record and a 5.36 ERA into this next start. Lyles won't be a reliable streaming option down the stretch.
Texas Rangers outfielder Adolis Garcia has not been the same hitter during the second half of the season. On Friday, he went 0-for-5 with four strikeouts in the 8-0 loss to the Chicago White Sox. The 28-year-old has not looked the same over the last few months at the plate. He is slashing .245/.291/.470 with 30 homers, 81 RBI and 10 steals this season. He will remain in the middle of the order down the stretch, but we'll see what the Rangers plan to do with him this offseason.
Texas Rangers outfielder Leody Taveras has struggled during his time at the MLB level. However, he put together a nice performance during Friday's game against the Chicago White Sox. He went 2-for-4 with a pair of singles and a stolen base during the 8-0 loss. A nice day for Taveras, but he is still slashing .165/.207/.293 through 36 games this season. The Rangers are trying to see what they have down the stretch, but it's uncertain if Taveras is going to be in their future plans.
