Texas Rangers Place Former All-Star On Waivers

The Texas Rangers have made a pivotal roster move by designating Jared Walsh for assignment.

Walsh, initially showing promise during spring training, struggled to maintain his momentum into the regular season, posting lackluster numbers with a .226/.317/.321 slash line in 60 plate appearances, predominantly against right-handed pitchers.

Despite flashes of potential and past accolades, including an All-Star appearance with the Los Angeles Angels, Walsh's performance fell short of expectations, prompting the Rangers to make this decision.

With Nathaniel Lowe's return from injury solidifying his role as the team's primary first baseman, the Rangers opted for stability in their lineup, banking on Lowe's reliability and offensive contributions to bolster their offensive output.

Walsh was an All-Star in 2021 with the Angels, posting a .277/.340/.509 triple-slash line, with 29 home runs, 98 RBI, two stolen bases, and 70 runs scored across 144 games played.
