The Texas Rangers have made their first trade of the 2021-22 offseason, adding two more former Dodgers to their 40-man roster.

Nov 22, 2021

Reks, 28, made his Major League debut in 2021, going 0-for-10 with seven strikeouts over six games for the Dodgers. The left-handed hitting outfielder spent the majority of last year at Triple-A Oklahoma City, where he displayed some of the pop in his bat. He slashed .280/.382/.539/.921 with 19 home runs and 67 RBI in 87 games, and has produced a career slash line of .295/.383/.487/.870 with 54 home runs and 212 RBI across four minor league seasons in the Dodgers organization. He has made the vast majority of his starts at the corner outfield spots (173 in left field, 63 in right field), while also making 16 starts at first base.

Reks was the Dodgers' No. 23 prospect in Baseball America's 2021 midseason rankings. He was selected by the Dodgers in the 10th round of the 2017 MLB Draft following two seasons as a walk-on at the University of Kentucky in 2016-17. His first season of collegiate baseball was for the United States Air Force Academy in 2013.

Following this trade, the Rangers have 39 players on the club’s 40-man roster.
