    So the Rangers have themselves a manager in Jeff Banister and a snazzy new special assistant in Michael Young.

    But, um, who will they have actually on the field in 2015?

    Some players were hurt so long ago it’s easy to forget they’re part of Texas’ plan to rejoin the postseason in 2015. Obviously moves need to be made over the looming winter, but here’s a snapshot of the 40-man roster as it stands today:

    STARTING PITCHERS: Yu Darvish/ Matt Harrison/ Derek Holland/ Martin Perez/ Nick Martinez/ Nick Tepesch/ Miles Mikolas/ Alexi Ogando

    RELIEF PITCHERS: Shawn Tolleson/ Tanner Scheppers/ Robbie Ross/ Neftali Feliz/ Michael Kirkman/ Lisalverto Bonilla/ Alex Claudio/ Jon Edwards/ Corey Knebel/ Phil Klein/ Roman Mendez/ Spencer Patton/ Aaron Poreda/ Ben Rowen/ Matt West

    CATCHERS: Robinson Chirinos/ Tomas Telis

    INFIELDERS: Prince Fielder/ Mitch Moreland/ Jurickson Profar/ Roughned Odor/ Elvis Andrus/ Adrian Beltre/ Adam Rosales/ Ryan Rua/ Luis Sardinas
