With the 2014 season well underway, the Texas Rangers haven't had the start they were hoping for after all the offseason transactions the club made.
Sitting at 15-12, two games back of the AL West-leading Oakland A’s, the Rangers aren’t quite living up to certain expectations. While some players seem to be excelling this season, guys like Prince Fielder and Elvis Andrus have yet to find a groove.
The club’s catchers and bullpen have been the biggest disappointments so far this season. J.P. Arencibia is just 3-for-32 at the plate, and the relievers have a combined 4.45 ERA, the seventh worst in Major League Baseball. And while the season has yet to hit the month of May, those are spots Texas may be already looking to improve.
The following players are the best trade bait the Rangers have to offer. While some trades over the past few years have drained the farm system, like those of Cliff Lee and Matt Garza, there is still talent available to offer if the occasion arose.
