The Texas Rangers have already signed two big shortstops this offseason. Can they sign a third?
However, the Rangers are now in talks with another unaffected agent.
The two big names Corey Cigar and Marcus Semien, both signed with the Rangers, were the biggest splashes of the MLB Free Agency.
Now Rangers can add three of those shortstops. Fortunately, picking supplies shouldn't be too difficult.
For the story, this could be a similar situation. The market did not develop as expected (the 99-day lockout certainly did not help).
The story would like to stay on the shortstop, and the New York Yankees and Houston Astros might be more appropriate for him in this case.
The story is coming up an up and down year. He tackled arm problems in 2021, which raised some questions among club executives about his defense.
