As of this moment, the Texas Rangers are tied for last place in Cactus League play with a 1-4 record. They obviously aren't yet in sync, but it's way too early to start making any judgments about them.
When you take a look at the standings, you'll see that the reigning World Series champion Boston Red Sox have the same record. Not to worry.
What is infinitely more important at this point is how individual players—both younger members of the team's expected 25-man roster as well as roster hopefuls—are performing. There have been a handful of guys who have really impressed thus far, even if we are only five games into the spring.
This list will focus on some of those players not named Adrian Beltre, Prince Fielder and Alex Rios—all of whom have started the spring off very well.
One could easily argue that the appearance of Seattle Seahawks' quarterback Russell Wilson on Monday turned more heads than anyone actually on the Rangers' roster. But for the sake of staying grounded, I'm excluding the biggest names from this list.
There is still nearly a month to go until Opening Day, but keep your eye on these guys. They've been playing with purpose, determined to prove themselves as worthy players on this roster.
