A place where he hit 156 home runs from 2001-2003, taking home the ’03 AL MVP, Texas will be an attraction.
Additionally, the Rangers are a contending team that has the luxury of a designated hitter along with the leeway to bring another bat aboard.
2016 may feature limited opportunities, but you can even think in terms of 2017 with A-Rod. Carlos Beltran will come off the books at the end of the season, letting him chase 700 as Texas’ DH.
A-Rod’s new job as special advisor with the Yankees does not prohibit him from playing with another major league club. If he finishes 2016 with a team, there is a strong chance he can return in 2017 as well.
