SURPRISE, Ariz. — The final pieces for the Rangers’ Opening Day roster are starting to come together.

The 26-man roster might not be set until the morning of the opener, but the scenarios the Rangers are contemplating have become more apparent over the past few days.

Of the 51 players remaining on the spring-training roster, 19 will be at Globe Life Field on March 28 against the Cubs. Josh Jung and Corey Seager are trending the right way with their health.

That leaves 30 players for five spots — two position players and three relievers. One of those is expected to go to Wyatt Langford.

Of the remaining 29, at least 16 remain under consideration under various scenarios.

The Rangers will make sure they’re covered, but the field shrinks considerably if Jung and Seager are ready to go, without any limitations, to open the season.

How could things play out? Let’s take a look.
