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.

Last summer's Clinton, Spokane, and the Rangers' AZL squad all contributed about equally to the new nine. Quite frankly, none of those look like a good foundation.

Team        League             W/L    Place    Hitters Pitchers
                                     (Teams)
Bakersfield California (A+)    58/82 10(10)       2      2
Clinton     Midwest (A)        45/94 14(14)       6      6
Spokane     Northwest (A-)     26/50  8(8)        5      5
Rangers     Arizona (R)        19/37  9(9)        4      5

Only a few of the new L'Kings appeared at two levels last summer; those are counted twice in this table. Everyone here was somewhere in the Rangers' farm system last year. One of these players appeared briefly at the Double-A level.
