I wrote the first version of the 25 players that I think will make up the Texas Rangers’ team for the start of the 2009 season back on Mar. 14. Here is an updated version of the players that I believe will make the team.

Last time I accompanied the players with their stats from the 2008 season, this time its their stats for the 2009 Spring Training as of Mar. 23.

Players that have been italicized are not in jeopardy of making the 25-man roster.
