The Texas Rangers will look to rebound from a 78-84 finish that saw them finish in third place in the American League West a season ago.

In 2020, almost all Rangers games will be televised in local markets on Fox Sports Southwest, while some will also be nationally televised on either Fox, Fox Sports 1, ESPN or MLB Network. But if you don’t have cable, you can watch every Rangers game on your computer, phone, Roku, Firestick, Apple TV or other streaming device via one of the following streaming services:

Cheapest Option for In-Market Viewers: Hulu With Live TV

Rangers Channels Included: Fox Sports Southwest (local markets), Fox, Fox Sports 1 and ESPN

Price: $54.99 per month

For in-market viewers, Hulu With Live TV is the cheapest streaming service that includes Fox Sports Southwest. In other words, if you live in a Rangers market, this is the cheapest way to watch every Rangers game without cable:

Get Hulu With Live TV

Once signed up, you can then watch Rangers games live on your computer via the Hulu website, or on your phone (Android and iPhone supported), tablet, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Echo Show, or other streaming device via the Hulu app.

If you can’t watch a game live, Hulu With Live TV also comes with 50 hours of cloud DVR space, as well as the option to upgrade to “Enhanced Cloud DVR,” which gives you 200 hours of space and the ability to fast-forward through commercials.


In-Market Viewers: YouTube TV

Rangers Channels Included: Fox Sports Southwest (local markets), Fox, Fox Sports 1, ESPN and MLB Network

Price: $64.99 per month

YouTube TV is a good option for those who also want MLB Network. However, it’s $10 per month more than Hulu With Live TV, and it’s worth noting that any Rangers game that is televised nationally on MLB Network will be on locally on Fox Sports Southwest, so it’s not a necessary option for in-market viewers.

Get YouTube TV

Once signed up for YouTube TV, you can then watch Rangers games live on your computer via the YouTube website, or on your phone (Android and iPhone supported), tablet, Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast, Xbox One, or other compatible streaming device via the YouTube app.

AT&T TV Now (formerly DirecTV Now) offers six different channel bundles, but the cheapest of those that includes Fox Sports Southwest is the “Max” bundle, which comes in at $80 per month. That makes this the most expensive streaming service with Fox Sports Southwest. And if you want MLB Network, you’ll have to go up to the “Choice” bundle at a whopping $110 per month.

Get AT&T TV Now

Once signed up for AT&T TV Now, you can watch Rangers games live on your computer via the AT&T TV Now website, or on your phone (Android and iPhone supported), tablet Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, or other compatible streaming device via the AT&T TV app.

Out-of-Market Viewers: MLB.TV

If you live outside of the Rangers market, you can watch all out-of-market games via MLB.TV. If you just want to watch out-of-market Rangers games, it costs $49.99 for the season. If you want to be able to watch every out-of-market game, it costs either $24.99 per month or $59.99 for the season:

Rangers 2020 Season Preview

Despite strong seasons from starters Mike Minor and Lance Lynn, the Rangers posted the AL’s fifth-worst ERA in 2019. They rebuilt their rotation over the offseason, acquiring two-time Cy Young winner Corey Kluber in a trade with the Cleveland Indians and signing Kyle Gibson and Jordan Lyles to multi-year deals.

Kluber made seven starts last year before taking a line drive off his throwing arm and suffering a broken ulna. He then injured an oblique during a rehab assignment, ending his season.

On March 1, the righty tossed three innings against the Los Angeles Dodgers in spring training, his first action against live batters in 10 months.

“The way I would judge a spring training start is how well I’m able to execute pitches,” Kluber said, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, “put the ball where I want to, avoid hard contact, and just trying to do that more consistent, more consistent every time out.”

He surrendered 2 hits, 2 walks, and 2 runs, racking up 4 strikeouts.

“For the most part I executed pitches well,” Kluber said, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “It wasn’t like I had any glaring misses or anything like that.

“I don’t know if I necessarily put too much stock in spring training statistics. I think it’s more so trying to get to the point where you feel good out there, you go out there and execute pitches, work your way through at-bats and be in different situations.”

Though the numbers weren’t sterling, Rangers manager Chris Woodward came away impressed.

“Really good,” Woodward said, according to ESPN. “I felt like he was spot-on. Balls were moving all over the place, back-door sinkers, front-door sinkers, cutters, his command was good.

“He’s always going like he has something to prove out there.”

The Rangers ranked sixth in the AL in runs scored a season ago. On Jan. 15, they addressed a hole at third base by inking Todd Frazier to a one-year deal.

In 133 games with the New York Mets in 2019, Frazier hit 21 homers and drove in 67 runs while slashing .251/.329/.772.

“You’re gonna get what you get with me,” Frazier said, according to The Dallas Morning News. “I’m gonna go through some lulls. I’m gonna have some highs. Hopefully, I can minimize the lulls. I’m streaky.”

The 34-year-old added that he’s looking forward to lining up next to Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus, 31. Each veteran’s known for their jovial spirit in the clubhouse.

“It’s great to be around guys like that,” Frazier said, per The Dallas Morning News. “The older we get, the less time we have. We’re trying to win a championship.”
