  • Rangers' Wyatt Langford: Will start Friday

    Langford will start Friday's Cactus League opener, Kennedi Landry of MLB.com reports. Texas manager Bruce Bochy said Langford is expected to get a lot of reps this spring, and it's widely believe last year's fourth-overall pick has a chance to crack the Opening Day roster. Presumably, the Rangers want the 22-year-old outfielder to get consistent playing time, so if Langford doesn't win a starting gig, he'd likely open at Triple-A Round Rock. Much of the Rangers' roster is set, but there is a hole at designated hitter. A situation where Langford and Evan Carter bounce between the outfield and DH is a possibility.

  • Rangers' Wyatt Langford: Attending big-league camp

    The Rangers announced Wednesday that Langford received an invitation to major-league spring training, Shawn McFarland of The Dallas Morning News reports. The 22-year-old quickly became the organization's top prospect after being selected fourth overall in July's 2023 First-Year Player Draft, and he rocketed his way through the minors to Triple-A by the end of the season. Langford posted an OPS above 1.000 at every level and clubbed 11 home runs in 44 games. He appears to have a real chance of earning a place on Texas' Opening Day roster in spring training, though the fact he has just 200 plate appearances as a professional under his belt could prompt the organization to keep him in the minors a bit longer, even with a strong showing in the Cactus League.
