The 2015 season started off on a bad note with the Ranger’s Ace pitcher Yu Darvish having to undergo Tommy John surgery due to a torn UCL before the season began. According to most experts, the Rangers were not expected to place any better than fourth or fifth in the American League West. However, even though the Rangers started the season with an 8-16 record, they were able to surpass the .500 mark on a few different occasions throughout the year. Surprisingly, in 2015 the Rangers were one of the best road teams in all of baseball hats australia with a road record of 45-36. Only the Chicago Cubs had a better road record with 48-33.

With the acquisition of Cole Hamels, the Rangers would retain a winning record after August 3. The Rangers would overtake the Houston Astros and clinch the American League West title on the final day of the season with a record of 88-74. It was the Rangers’ 6th division title and 7th postseason appearance in franchise history. Hamels’ positive effect on the Rangers was compared to that of the Toronto Blue Jays’ David Price, another ace starting pitcher who helped spearhead a run to the postseason after blending in seamlessly with a struggling team who acquired him at the trade deadline. The Rangers lost to the Toronto Blue Jays in five games in the Division Series after squandering a 2-0 series lead.
