Daniels On Rangers’ Youth Motion
By Jeff Todd | September 16, 2020 at 8:50pm CDTRangers president of baseball operations Jon Daniels has now set forth a transparent strategic directive for the group, as coated by Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning Information. The veteran govt says the membership’s latest youth motion will probably carry over into the 2021 season.
The Texas crew seems so much much less grey of late. The roster is “youthful and deliberately so,” per Daniels, who says that may probably “proceed into subsequent yr.” If there was any doubt as to the Rangers’ near-term intentions, Daniels issued a tell-tale cautionary warning towards “ free company because the quick reduce.”
It’s robust to know what to anticipate from newcomers similar to Leody Taveras, Anderson Tejeda, Sam Huff, and Sherten Apostel. However the Rangers imagine their present crop of younger expertise is extra “prepared for this chance” than was the case final yr, says Daniels.
There may very well be some tough patches alongside the best way, however the Rangers intend to search out out what they’ve bought. “The largest change is we wish to enable them to develop on the main league degree,” Daniels explains.
This clearly isn’t the spot the Rangers had hoped to be in at this stage of the season. The membership pursued enhancements over the winter and had its sights set on competition. However with a number of disappointing performances from key gamers, the youth motion displays the truth that there gained’t be a fast offseason repair.
