Pre-Season Profile

Manager

In one Gulf Coast season, Carlos Subero let few pitchers complete games but was mostly fairly conventional. His 2001 team was outrageously successful on the basepaths.

  • Oldest Player on the Team: Brock Jacobsen (12/31/79)
  • Youngest Player on the Team: John Danks (4/15/85)

The average player in the Midwest League this season is about 21.9 years old. This information is based on opening day rosters as published on the team website and will not be updated.


Where they played last season

This summary is based on the team's opening day roster and will not be revised to reflect roster changes.

For all practical purposes, the Rangers have moved last year's excellent Spokane team to Clinton this summer. A handful of holdovers and rookie league promotions fill out the roster.

Team        League             W/L    Place    Hitters Pitchers
                                     (Teams)
Stockton    California (A+)    77/63  3(10)       0      0
Clinton     Midwest (A)        69/66 T6(14)       3      3
Spokane     Northwest (A-)     50/26  1(8)        8      7
Rangers     Arizona (R)        35/14  1(9)        3      4

There was little movement within this organization last season, though one player appeared on three teams last season. No player on this team played above the MWL level in 2003.
