Is time running out for Texas’ top talents?

“Don’t hold it against these players,” Daniels said. “That’s on us. We promoted them aggressively because they were advanced in a lot of ways, and when you get to Triple-A at age 19 or 20 years old and reach the big leagues at 20 or 21, that’s unusual. The guys that hit and perform immediately are on the fast track to the Hall of Fame discussion.

“We’ve asked these guys to play out of position and in less-than-everyday roles, and that’s a challenge. The talent and the instincts haven’t gone anywhere.”
