This list was admittedly a little hard to make. The Colorado Rockies and Texas Rangers do not share as many players as some of the other teams we have looked at, so sadly we don’t see anyone like Nolan Ryan on this list (though eventually Trevor Story may make his way onto this list), but it is always fun to look into the histories of these teams.
Here are the Top 5 players to play for the Colorado Rockies and Texas Rangers.
Total Number of Shared Players: 61

David Dahl probably should not be on this list because of his limited time with the Texas Rangers. After all, he only just signed with the team this offseason, but his current contract has him under control through 2024. Unless traded, David Dahl will be on the Texas Rangers for a good chunk of time.
While early on has been a little rough for Dahl in Texas, I believe he has the potential to top this list in a future iteration. Just like his time with the Colorado Rockies, injuries will dictate his legacy. Currently, David Dahl is yet again on the injured list, but he is only 27 years old and already has an All-Star appearance under his belt. We will watch his Rangers career with great interest.
