Complete Texas Rangers 2014 Spring Training Preview

Following two consecutive late-season collapses, the Texas Rangers decided to take a lot of chances this offseason by investing a lot of money into free agency and trading a cornerstone player for a big middle-of-the-order bat. 

General manager Jon Daniels has done an outstanding job building this farm system up to be able to make deals at the deadline. He's also hit on a lot of free-agent deals in recent years, most notably Adrian Beltre. 

It's hard to find a more consistent franchise, top to bottom, over the last five years than the Rangers. They made the playoffs three consecutive years from 2010 to 2012 and won back-to-back AL pennants (2010, 2011). 

On top of that, they are always bringing up new, impact prospects. Players like Elvis Andrus, Jurickson Profar, Martin Perez, Leonys Martin, Neftali Feliz and Tanner Scheppers are just a few of the young stars to come through the pipeline in recent years. 

The Rangers have grand designs on getting back to the postseason and World Series in 2014, though it won't be an easy climb with Oakland loading up for another run at the division title. 

Let's take a look at what the Rangers have done this offseason and what this spring will look like for the franchise in 2014.
