There are more moves likely to happen, but I thought it might be fun to look at what the opening day roster might be with the starting lineup.

Let’s go with the roster, depth chart, and opening day lineup.

Remember, this is just predicting off of what the Rangers have on their current 40 man roster right now.

This lineup is a very good defensive lineup. Elvis at third for now is not bad at all.

If they do indeed go with a 26 man roster, then look for Ronald Guzman or Kolby Allard in the bullpen.
Then again, I could be WAY off.
