American League Power Rankings: Preseason Edition

5 of 15

5. team. 126. The Texas Rangers come into 2016 as the defending American League West Champions, looking to build on last years success after being eliminated in a thrilling game five loss to the Toronto Blue Jays in 2015. <strong>2016 Outlook:</strong> The Rangers, like the Blue Jays but not to the same severity also had a poor offseason, they lost starting pitcher Yovani Gallardo, and really didn’t do anything to better their team this winter. The Rangers have an impressive roster as is, but I feel like they hurt themselves this winter by not making any positive moves during free-agency. They will likely still compete with the Astros for the American League West title despite the unimpressive offseason.. (0-0). Previous: N/Ath. Texas Rangers
