2006 Topps Co-Signers - Jason Botts

Today's card is number 105 in the 2006 Topps Co-Signers set.

Spring Training is moving closer to the final cut and Opening Day. Jason is one of several players trying to nail down a spot on the Rangers roster. He has a problem though. Texas has a light bench due to their deep bullpen. Botts can hit (somewhat at least) but he doesn't do well in the field. As such he is listed as a DH on the 40 man roster. The Rangers really have little room for such a player, they need someone who can play positions for them. Jason has been working on playing first base but it may be too little too late. He may be looking at one more year in the minors.

It may be time for Jason to go somewhere else where he will probably proceed to hit 40 taters for another team as a DH.
