The Rangers are fortunate to have several players with very high values right now. Holding on to them is not necessarily a wrong move, but it involves risk.
In particular, Jurickson Profar and Mike Olt are coming off excellent seasons in the minor leagues. Their values can’t get much higher then they are right now without playing a significant number of games in the majors.
Additionally, shortstop Elvis Andrus has steadily improved in each of his four years at the big league level.
What the front office has to think about is how much their values will change during the course of the season. It could go up, but it could sink as well, for any number of reasons.
Should this happen, will teams around the league keep calling with the same offers then that they are coming at the Rangers with now? That is worth considering.
