3. Travis Jankowski

Travis Jankowski's impressive play has been one of the Rangers' many bright spots this season.

The journeyman outfielder has done well when called upon, racking up 55 hits, a career-high 24 RBIs and 15 stolen bases over 68 games (210 at-bats). He's also slashing .304/.392/.392 while his 13.8% strikeout percentage is considerably below the MLB average (22.1%).

Although Texas would love to have Jankowski back next season, fans shouldn't hold their breath.

After playing on a one-year, $1.25 million contract this season, Jankowski will surely want more after his breakout performance. You can't blame him, either. The Rangers are the sixth franchise he's played for and, at 32, he likely wants some stability before his career ends.

I wouldn't be shocked if one team desperate for outfield help overpays the former 2012 first-rounder in the hopes that he can be that consistent throughout a 162-game slate.

Texas shouldn't be that team, though. Chances are this performance is an anomaly based on Jankowski's age and how his career previously went. It's better to let another team take that gamble in 2024.
