Player Outlook
Wyatt Langford fell to the Rangers at No. 4 overall in the 2023 draft, but he could have gone 1-1 in that draft or any other to a team focused on getting a quick-to-the-majors impact bat. After slaughtering pro pitching to the tune of a .360/.480/.677 slash line with 10 home runs and 12 steals in 44 games while climbing from rookie ball to Triple-A, he now has a case as the top prospect in the game and as the top prospect to target for 2024 fantasy production. In a couple years, those elite prospects two and three years younger like Jackson Holliday and Jackson Chourio may be on Langford's level of impact, but right now he looks like a man among boys at the top of prospect lists. He posted a 117-mph exit velocity at Florida and regularly logged exit velocities north of 100 mph in pro ball. While Langford won't end up in center field, especially given the Rangers' other options, he is a plus runner who puts his speed to use on the bases and he walked more than he struck out in the SEC and in his pro debut. Given that Langford may be the favorite for AL Rookie of the Year, the Rangers are incentivized to give him a full year of service time, as it could net them a Prospect Promotion Incentive draft pick at the end of the first round in 2025.

  • Rangers' Wyatt Langford: Beginning rehab assignment Friday

    Langford (hamstring) will begin his minor-league rehab assignment with Triple-A Round Rock on Friday. Langford landed on the 10-day injured list May 6 due to a strained right hamstring he sustained against the Royals on May 4. The 22-year-old may only need a couple of rehab outings over the weekend before rejoining the big club, barring any setbacks. Prior to his injury, Langford was slashing .224/.295/.293 with one home run and 11 RBI over 129 plate appearances.

  • Rangers' Wyatt Langford: On cusp of rehab assignment

    Langford (hamstring) is expected to begin a minor-league rehab assignment as soon as Friday, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports. The 22-year-old has been sidelined nearly three weeks by a strained hamstring but is in the latter stages of his rehab program. Assuming Langford is able to get in a couple games this weekend, he could rejoin the Rangers for an upcoming two-game series versus the Diamondbacks, which begins Tuesday.

  • Rangers' Wyatt Langford: Running at 85-to-90 percent

    Langford (hamstring) said Monday that he's now able to run at about 85-to-90 percent speed, Shawn McFarland of The Dallas Morning News reports. Langford also added that he began swinging a bat this past Friday. The next step for the rookie will be to incorporate more explosive running to test out his strained right hamstring. Langford is one week into a projected 3-to-4-week recovery timeline, so his return from the 10-day injured list isn't imminent.

  • Rangers' Wyatt Langford: Officially lands on IL

    The Rangers placed Langford (hamstring) on the 10-day injured list Monday. Just as manager Bruce Bochy said would be the case following Sunday's 3-2 win over the Royals, Langford was deactivated due to a right hamstring strain that's expected to sideline the rookie for around 3-to-4 weeks. Texas called up infielder Jonathan Ornelas from Triple-A Round Rock in a corresponding move.

  • Rangers' Wyatt Langford: Headed for multi-week absence

    Rangers manager Bruce Bochy said after Sunday's 3-2 extra-inning win over the Royals that Langford (hamstring) is expected to miss 3-to-4 weeks and will be placed on the 10-day injured list, Jackson Stone of MLB.com reports. An MRI confirmed that Langford sustained a right hamstring strain in Saturday's 15-4 win, and he now looks in line to miss the rest of May while recovering from the injury. The 22-year-old rookie has typically served as the Rangers' primary designated hitter this season, but Texas could rotate a number of players at the DH spot while opening up opportunities in the infield for Ezequiel Duran. Langford had gotten off to a slow start to his big-league career before suffering the injury, as he carried a .224 batting average to go with one home run and one stolen base over his first 31 games.

  • Rangers' Wyatt Langford: Held out of Sunday's lineup

    Langford (hamstring) is out of the lineup for Sunday's game at Kansas City.

Corey Seager will serve as the DH while Langford sits on Sunday, as Josh Smith starts at shortstop and Ezequiel Duran at third base.

  • Rangers' Wyatt Langford: Secures first major-league homer

    Langford went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Sunday's 4-3 win over the Reds. Langford entered Sunday homerless through his first 26 major-league contests, but that came to an end in quite the unique fashion. With one on and two out in the top of the first, the outfielder launched a high flyball to right center field, which ricocheted off the wall and rolled away from right fielder Jake Fraley, allowing Langford to round the bases for an inside-the-park home run. Langford, who picked up his first RBI since April 18, is now batting .248 with 11 RBI, 13 runs and a stolen base over 101 at-bats in 27 games this season.

  • Rangers' Wyatt Langford: Gets first day off

    Langford is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Athletics. The prized rookie will take a seat for the first time this season, ending a streak of 11 consecutive starts to begin his big-league career. Travis Jankowski will enter the lineup at designated hitter in place of Langford, who is hitting .261 with zero home runs, zero steals, six RBI and four runs across his first 51 big-league plate appearances.

  • Rangers' Wyatt Langford: Serves as DH

    Langford started at designated hitter and went 1-for-3 with a walk and an RBI in Thursday's 4-3 extra-inning win over the Cubs on Opening Day. Langford, a 2023 first-round selection out of Florida, forced his way onto the roster this spring, belting six home runs with 20 RBI and a 1.137 OPS during Cactus League play. The Rangers aren't giving him a roster spot to be a part-timer, so he should be the team's primary DH. Texas manager Bruce Bochy showed confidence in Langford, having the club's top prospect bat fifth in his MLB debut.

  • Rangers' Wyatt Langford: Added to roster ahead of debut

    The Rangers selected Langford's contract from Triple-A Round Rock on Thursday. Manager Bruce Bochy announced last week that Langford had made the Opening Day roster, and now it's official. The Rangers have yet to reveal their lineup for their opener against the Cubs, but Langford will be in it. The top prospect put up a 1.137 OPS with six home runs during Cactus League action.

  • Rangers' Wyatt Langford: Could make Opening Day roster

    Manager Chris Young said Saturday that Langford, who will start in left field in Saturday's Cactus League game against the Diamondbacks, has done "everything he can" to make the Rangers' roster, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports. Langford has been building a strong case for his spot on the Rangers' Opening Day roster. Entering Saturday, Langford leads spring training batters in slugging percentage (.806), is tied with Freddie Freeman for most RBI (14), and is tied with Thomas Saggese for fourth-best batting average (.361). While Young hasn't fully committed to Langford being on the team's roster on Opening Day, the 22-year-old prospect will almost certainly make the club out of spring training.

  • Rangers' Wyatt Langford: Will start Friday

    Langford will start Friday's Cactus League opener, Kennedi Landry of MLB.com reports. Texas manager Bruce Bochy said Langford is expected to get a lot of reps this spring, and it's widely believe last year's fourth-overall pick has a chance to crack the Opening Day roster. Presumably, the Rangers want the 22-year-old outfielder to get consistent playing time, so if Langford doesn't win a starting gig, he'd likely open at Triple-A Round Rock. Much of the Rangers' roster is set, but there is a hole at designated hitter. A situation where Langford and Evan Carter bounce between the outfield and DH is a possibility.

  • Rangers' Wyatt Langford: Attending big-league camp

    The Rangers announced Wednesday that Langford received an invitation to major-league spring training, Shawn McFarland of The Dallas Morning News reports. The 22-year-old quickly became the organization's top prospect after being selected fourth overall in July's 2023 First-Year Player Draft, and he rocketed his way through the minors to Triple-A by the end of the season. Langford posted an OPS above 1.000 at every level and clubbed 11 home runs in 44 games. He appears to have a real chance of earning a place on Texas' Opening Day roster in spring training, though the fact he has just 200 plate appearances as a professional under his belt could prompt the organization to keep him in the minors a bit longer, even with a strong showing in the Cactus League.

  • Rangers' Wyatt Langford: To be promoted again

    Langford is expected to be promoted to Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday, Shawn McFarland of the Dallas Morning News reports. Langford has been fast-tracked since being selected fourth overall in the July draft. The 21-year-old spent three games with the Rangers' entry in the Arizona Complex League before going to High-A Hickory, where he slashed .333/.453/.644 with five home runs over 24 games. In early September, he was moved up to to Double-A Frisco, where once again his learning curve was minimal. In 12 games for the RoughRiders, Langford slashed .405/.519/.762 with four homers. In 39 total professional games, Langford has an OPS of 1.168 with 10 home runs, two triples, 14 doubles and more walks (30) than strikeouts (28).
