The team isn't that far off from being a World Series contender again, considering the Nelson Cruz suspension dented the run production.
As for the realistic moves the Rangers can make, they must come at the best prices. For example, a dream scenario would be signing both Brian McCann and Jacoby Ellsbury while still maintaining close to the same 2013 payroll of $112 million.
But only signing McCann and re-signing other Rangers seems the most realistic.
With a plethora of free agents available, the Rangers could throw offers at the best. Robinson Cano is set to test the free-agent market, but he might not be a realistic signing. His asking price will be far too high, and the Rangers already have Ian Kinsler and Jurickson Profar capable of playing second base.
Finding a realistic trade for the Rangers to make is also key. They could realistically pursue David Price if they choose to part with a player like Profar. Trying to trade for Giancarlo Stanton might be more of a reach because the Marlins seem highly unlikely to part with him.
With all this taken into consideration as well as re-signing players from the 2013 squad, here is a look at realistic moves the Rangers should consider to make in the offseason.
