Corey Kluber Trade Improves Rangers Odds to Win 2020 World Series
By Max Staley
The Texans Rangers pulled off a massive deal, sending Delino DeShields and Emmanuel Clase to the Cleveland Indians in exchange for Corey Kluber. Kluber, a two-time Cy Young Award winner (in 2014 and 2017), will instantly upgrade Texas' rotation.
Unsurprisingly, this deal has already made a pretty significant impact on the Rangers' odds to win the 2020 World Series, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
Rangers Odds to Win 2020 World Series
Texas opened at +10000 to win the 2020 World Series, which tied them with six other clubs for the lowest odds in the MLB.
However, after acquiring Kluber, the Rangers have jumped all the way up to +7000, putting Texas at No. 21 in the odds.
The Rangers are still clearly a long shot, though this move has undoubtedly improved their chances.
There's still a ways to go, and Texas' 2020 World Series odds should continue to shift as the offseason progresses.
