The 1994 Texas Rangers season involved the Rangers finishing first in the American League West with a record of 52 wins and 62 losses. The season was cut short by the infamous 1994 player's strike.

Offseason[edit]

  • November 22, 1993: Will Clark was signed as a free agent by the Rangers.[1]
  • December 18, 1993: Billy Ripken was signed as a free agent by the Rangers.[2]

Regular season[edit]

Despite compiling a record of just 52-62 by Friday, August 12, the Rangers were actually leading the AL West Division. They had scored 613 runs (5.38 per game) and allowed 697 runs (6.11 per game).[3]

The Rangers' pitching struggled over the course of the strike-shortened season, finishing 1st in most runs allowed (697) and most home runs allowed (157).[4]
