MLB Playoffs ALDS Tampa Bay-Texas: Bench

While infielder Reid Brignac and outfielder Matt Joyce are certainly versatile options, they are nowhere near as valuable as the players coming off the Texas bench.

In addition to the July acquisition of Lee, the Rangers strengthened their bench at the trade deadline by picking up the likes of Jorge Cantu, Jeff Francoeur and Cristian Guzman. All three contribute, as does David Murphy, who filled in admirably in the outfield this season for both Cruz and Hamilton.
