1. TEXAS Texas has questions, starting with pitcher Yu Dar2. HOUSTON vish, who’s a legitimate ace at 100 percent. But Dar
vish missed all of 2015 after undergoing Tommy John 3. L.A. ANGELS
surgery and isn’t expected back until mid-May. Open4. SEATTLE
ing Day starter Cole Hamels should be out5. OAKLAND standing, but the Rangers will need better performances from Derek Holland and Martin Perez in ’16. Third baseman Adrian Beltre turns 37 on opening week and slowed down some last year, while outfielder Josh Hamilton turns 35 in May. He will start the season on the DL. However, there’s veteran talent in DH Prince Fielder, a blossoming star in 22-year-old Rougned Odor, and one of the game’s best power prospects in third baseman Joey Gallo. The Rangers will be pressed by the Astros, who have perhaps the game’s top farm system plus a slew of established twenty-something talents including Jose Altuve, George Springer, Carlos Correa, Dallas Keuchel, Lance McCullers, Collin McHugh and Ken Giles.
