Wyatt Langford: The Rising Star of the Texas Rangers' 2024 Opening Day Roster!

By Alex Al-Kazzaz

In less than a week, the Texas Rangers will begin their season at home in a three-game series against the Chicago Cubs. The reigning and defending World Series champions are looking to start a new era of success. As the Rangers wrap up Spring Training, the club announced that Wyatt Langford, the team's number two prospect and fourth overall draft pick from last year, has earned a spot on the team's Opening Day roster.

Langford, 22, played collegiate baseball at the University of Florida. He was part of the Gators team that made the 2023 Men's College World Series finals and quickly rose through the ranks of the Rangers' minor league system. has Langford ranked as the league's sixth-best overall prospect.

The Rangers have one of the most potentially dangerous offensive lineups. There's much to be intrigued about with Marcus Semien, Corey Seager, Adolis Garcia, and Evan Carter. With Langford joining the group, the curiosity only increases. Langford's numbers in the minors last year can't and should not be overlooked.

According to The Athletic, he was reportedly considered being added to the team's post-season roster. The outfielder arrived at Spring Training as a non-roster invitee. However, by amassing a .377 batting average with 20 RBIs and six homers, he's earned his spot. Going into Spring Training, the Rangers needed a designated hitter, and it looks like they've found their guy.
