Olney: Rangers No. 3 overall in MLB

After breaking down the various positions, ESPN.com's Buster Olney has now done an overall ranking. It's based on what we know now about the teams, understanding that things could certainly change before and during spring training (remember the Rangers made two key moves last January: signing Adrian Beltre and trading for Mike Napoli). Olney has the Rangers third, behind the Tampa Bay Rays and the Philadelphia Phillies. Here's what he says about Texas:

3. Texas Rangers

The Rangers probably have more depth than any other organization, and they will be needed this year as they sort through new rotation and bullpen alignments.

Yu Darvish is not yet signed, but rival executives don't believe he has much leverage and will eventually work out a deal.

The teams behind the Rangers:

4. New York Yankees

5. Arizona Diamondbacks

6. Boston Red Sox

7. St. Louis Cardinals

8. Detroit Tigers

9. Los Angeles Angels

10. San Francisco Giants
