Texas Rangers Betting Preview
The Texas Rangers were one of the worst teams in Major League Baseball last season, dropping 102 games and finishing last in the AL West. Advanced metrics including their BaseRuns record suggest that they were as bad as their record showed, as Texas struggled mightily to compete in a division that was good, but not great. But with the Houston Astros also residing in Texas, this Rangers team may be doomed to being the second best team in Texas for a while.
Fortunately, the Rangers have made the effort in the offseason to try and improve their team, even if they have a ton of improvements to make. They brought in some hitting and pitching help that they hope will lift them up in the American League. At the very least, they hope to not be one of the worst teams in the sport any longer.

Key Additions: Marcus Semien, Corey Seager, Jon Gray, Mitch Garver
Key Departures: None
The Texas Rangers are spending money to try and field a competitive team, which is all you can ask a struggling team to do. They moved their payroll above the league average with their moves this offseason. Those moves include bringing in Marcus Semien and Corey Seager to bolster their lineup, and Jon Gray to help improve their pitching staff.
The offensive acquisitions for this team are especially important, as they were so bad offensively in 2021. Semien finished top-three in AL MVP voting as a member of the Toronto Blue Jays, while Seager has championship experience from his time with the Dodgers. The two of them are going to provide an immediate impact in Arlington, and the Rangers should gain instant respectability due to their presence.

Texas was an anomaly offensively last season, as they were the rare team that struggled to hit for average or power. They are in the bottom-three in most major offensive statistical categories, as they were simply unable to generate consistent threats against opposing pitching staffs. That should change with their offseason moves, which put a priority on getting proven players onto the team.
Semien is especially interesting for the Rangers, as he scored 115 runs last year and helped the Blue Jays become one of the more explosive teams in all of baseball. Without Vlad Guerrero Jr. to join him in the Texas lineup, it will be interesting to see how his numbers are impacted. But you have to like what the Rangers did with their lineup this offseason.

While the biggest weakness of the Rangers was hitting last season, there is no reason to pretend that offense was their only issue. Texas was not exactly shutting opponents down last season, as they ranked in the bottom-third of the league in most pitching categories. The rare exception was their walk rate, which was decent, as teams were able to beat the Rangers by putting the ball in play.
Adding Jon Gray to the pitching staff should help the Rangers a little bit in this regard. While the priority for this offseason was understandably the batting order, adding Gray gives the team at least some forward progress in improving their pitching. Whether that is enough to actually climb the standings in the AL West may be too much to ask.
Positives & Negatives
On the positive side of things, the Rangers made some legitimate improvements to their lineup. Adding Seager and Semian will give them some added pop, and help them win more games. It also shows a commitment to improving the team that too many front offices are failing to show at the bottom of the league.
On the negative side of the equation, the Rangers still have a ways to go in the pitching department, even if Gray is effective. The Mariners, Astros, and Angels all have potent offenses, meaning that the Rangers will need to bring it on the mound, something they might not be able to accomplish.
Texas Rangers Pick & Prediction: Over 74.5
This season, the Rangers should be able to improve on what they did a season ago and get up around 75 wins. Their lineup is now a respectable one, and the big leaps that they made in that area of their roster will help them approach .500. Take the over on the Rangers’ season win total, as an 80-win season is more than possible.
