Injuries could force Rangers to rebuild


The storms of the obvious must first be weathered by the Texas Rangers. Yes, the Prince Fielder injury hurts their chances to compete (although he wasn't playing that well, and whoever replaces him could be better). Yes, Texas would be well-served to give complete physicals to any player it has acquired (and its knowledge of what to test for just increased). Sure, the Ian Kinsler trade looks bad (and nobody has any idea how effective Fielder will be when he comes back next season).

But the more important question the Rangers must address is: What's next?

Seriously, now that Fielder, Matt Harrison, Martin Perez, Jurickson Profar and others are out, what is next?
