The Rangers have the talent and grittiness to be one of the best in the AHL but they will need to get bytheir cross-state rivals the Houston Astros in order to be crowned the best of the AL West. Texas won back-to-back AL West titles in 2015-16 but the Rangers underwent a significant overhaul in personnel after making their second successive early playoff exit. Will the changes leave the Rangers scrambling to fit the pieces together, or can they continue their run of success?

Texas Rangers betting tips
The Rangers feature one of the better offenses in the AL and their pitching staff could get a tremendous boost thanks to the addition of a former All-Star.
Yu Darvish returned in 2016 from Tommy John surgery. A three-time All-Star in the MLB, Darvish is also one of the most accomplished Japanese baseball players of the last 20 years.
Darvish reached the mark of 500 strikeouts faster than any other pitcher in MLB history. With a healthy Darvish returning, the Rangers will have one of the best pitching staffs in baseball.
But What About The Bullpen?
Amazingly, the Rangers won the AL West title in 2016 despite posting the second-worst bullpen earned-run average in baseball. That type of relief work is generally a recipe for disaster.
Shawn Tolleson (7.68), Keone Kela (6.09) and Tom Wilhelmsen (10.55) were among the worst offenders, and only Kela returned for the 2017 season.
