The Texas Rangers represented the division in the World Series in 2010. How will the division shape out in 2011? Here is the preview of all the teams in the AL West and their projected record to end the season.
Texas Rangers 2010 Record (90-72 finished first in AL West)
The Rangers appeared in the World Series for the first time in franchise history in 2010 but lost to the San Francisco Giants in five games.
Texas defeated Tampa Bay in the American League Division Series and the New York Yankees in the American League Championship Series.
The Rangers have arguably one of the most dangerous lineups in the American League with 2010 MVP Josh Hamilton. Add in a healthy Ian Kinsler at second base, the speedy Elvis Andrus at short stop and their newest free-agent acquisition Adrian Beltre.
