Struggling Rangers Look to Get Back on Track
The Rangers went out this offseason and made two big splashes in signing Corey Seager and Marcus Semien. Neither has gotten off to a great start to the season and Texas will need much more from them if they have any hopes of turning it around.
Rangers Projected Lineup:
2B Marcus Semien
SS Corey Seager
C Mitch Garver
RF Adolis Garcia
LF Nick Solak
1B Nate Lowe
3B Charlie Culberson
DH Andy Ibanez
CF Eli White
Starting Pitcher: Glenn Otto
Is the Athletics Early Success Sustainable?
Even after selling off a ton of pieces this offseason, the Athletics have gotten off to a good start this season, posting an 8-6 record through 14 games. The question is though, can they continue to sustain that level of success for a full 162 game schedule?
Athletics Projected Lineup:
LF Anthony Kemp
3B Sheldon Neuse
C Sean Murphy
1B Seth Brown
DH Christian Bethancourt
RF Billy McKinney
SS Elvis Andrus
CF Christian Pache
2B Nick Allen
Starting Pitcher: Adam Oller
