Manager Chris Woodward had high praise for GM Jon Daniels and his team for revamping the Texas Rangers rotation for 2020 and beyond. Free agent signings Kyle Gibson and Jordan Lyles come in on team friendly deals, and bringing in a bonafide ace in Corey Kluber only strengthens the depth of the Rangers’ rotation. For Chris Woodward, he wants to challenge this pitching staff. He wants excellence, but not only excellence, he wants them to be the best.
“My challenge to them is, ‘Let’s be the best in baseball,’” Woodward said. “There is a lot that goes into it, but if you set the ceiling high, the bar high, I want our guys to take ownership in that.
