Nomar Mazara

In a trade made out of nowhere this offseason, the Texas Rangers sent their once prized prospect right fielder Nomar Mazara to the White Sox for outfielder Steele Walker.

First reactions of the trade were skeptical at first, as I explain in this article posted prior to the trade. But after some key additions following the trade answers to questions we had were answered and holes that were still present were getting filled.

Mazara is a 25-year-old right fielder who has been in the league for four years already. He is a career .261 hitter with a career .320 OBP and .435 slug. He can hit at least 20 home runs in a season and hit quite the number of doubles. He is also under team control for the next two years.

His defensive game is above average and he does have a strong arm out of right field. He also checks multiple boxes the team had on their checklist going into the offseason: a right fielder and a lefty with pop.
