The Rangers released their sixty-man taxi squad for Spring Training 2.0, or what they are calling Summer Camp. How quaint. I wonder if they will be doing arts and crafts. I hope the counselors are friendly.
Here is the Summer Camp roster, with fifty-five players, leaving room for more signings and player transactions.
It’s an interesting mix. Names like Jung and Huff and Apostel are included because the Rangers don’t want to stall their development. Who knows if they would ever get a taste of big league time but in this crazy year, anything is possible.
It’s not even determined yet if they will play other teams in Summer Camp or if these will be split squad games. But the roster will be divided into three groups of twenty, with each group training together, in an effort to keep crowd sizes smaller and to allow coaches more time to work with the players.
