The Sunday Read: After 102 losses, Texas Rangers still want to ‘build this the right way.’ In other words, there’s no quick fix ahead

The 2021 MLB regular season ended a week ago, with the Texas Rangers dropping their 102nd game in fitting fashion with a listless 6-0 loss.

They officially moved toward 2022 on Tuesday, dismissing hitting coach Luis Ortiz and bench coach Don Wakamatsu. On Saturday, outfielder Jason Martin and right-handers Mike Foltynewicz and Hunter Wood elected to take free agency after clearing outright waivers.

More roster moves are coming as the Rangers open spots on the 40-man roster ahead of free agency, add players on the 60-day injured list and protect prospects from the Rule 5 draft.

Rangers scouts, coaches and executives will meet next week to finalize the team’s offseason plan.

They already have an idea of what they will do. A 102-loss season helped mapped that out.
