The Texas Rangers looked poised to make a run this season in the American League.

A big reason for that is the signing of starting pitcher Jacob deGrom.

Many people thought that deGrom would return to the Mets when this free agency was all said and done.

But he was ready for a new opportunity elsewhere.

In his introductory press conference, deGrom mentioned that “we want to finally win the World Series.”

Maybe as a subtle shot at his former team.

deGrom made it to the World Series with the Mets in 2015, and he was a big part of that team.

In his time with the Mets, deGrom won two Cy Young Awards and made four All-Star teams.

But it doesn’t sound like this comment was an opportunity for the Mets.

Instead, he seems impressed with the way the Rangers have built their roster in recent years.

Last offseason, Texas signed both Corey Seager and Marcus Semien.

Plus, they have some other solid pitchers in Jon Gray and Martin Perez.

AL contenders?

Despite their recent tendencies to spend big in free agency, do the Rangers have what it takes to compete in the American League?

Unfortunately for them, they play in the same division as the World Series champion Houston Astros.

Houston still has a substantially better team than the Rangers, but they’ve closed the gap this offseason.

Also, the Seattle Mariners will be a tough competitor in the American League, with their recent appearance.

The American League is destined to be a highly competitive league.

So the Rangers will need deGrom to stay healthy to keep up the pace for the long haul.

Texas is ready to compete and they still have time to improve their team for the remainder of the offseason.
