Friday on the Farm: Frisco playing best in Rangers’ system early on

ARLINGTON — An MLB baseball season is so long that a player or manager might say “it’s still early” as late into a season as August.

May, without question, is still early. Teams are approaching the 50-game mark with a mere 112 to go. That leaves plenty of time for fortunes to change, and the Rangers are expecting to see more wins more consistently.

The same applies in the minor leagues, even though seasons are shorter and three of the four full-season classes split their seasons into halves.

But half of a lot is still a lot.

    Jeff, do you think Rangers dip into AA for pitching help anytime soon as nobody at AAA has been much help? I’m guessing 40 man implication is the main barrier but aren’t we going to need to protect some of these guys anyway or risk losing them to Rule 5 after the season?

      I think they would, and I wouldn’t be surprised if Teodo gets a look. He’s a Rule 5 guy, and guys who throw 100 get picked. If Acker can stay healthy, he might be a look. I think injuries kept him from getting selected in the 2023 Rule 5. I don’t know if Zavala will get a big-league opportunity this year. He’s going to be a tricky Rule 5 decision.
