2. Mitch Garver
After two seasons with the Rangers, Mitch Garver is set to hit free agency this offseason.
The 32-year-old DH/catcher has been a reliable batter over the last two seasons. Although Jonah Heim's presence has limited his opportunities, Garver has still racked up 29 home runs and 74 RBIs across 141 games since 2022. I wouldn't be surprised if an interesting party looked at those numbers and thought that he has what it takes to be a full-time starter.
After playing for $3.9 million this season, chances are Garver will look to cash in on a payday this offseason. While the Rangers would probably be happy to have him back, I doubt they'd be willing to go to a bidding war over him.
As great as Garver has looked at times, it's important to remember that he's only played at least 100 games once in a season and that was when he played just 102 in 2018. The Rangers shouldn't overpay for a player who rarely plays half the season, regardless of how good he looks when he does suit up.
Locking Garver down for multiple years could be risky, so let's let that be another team's problem.
