The Frisco RoughRiders 2022 Roster: Who’s on the Team?

The Frisco RoughRiders, Double-A affiliate of the Texas Rangers, are coming off a successful 2021 season. First year manager Jared Goedert led the team to a 64-55 record and although they missed the playoffs, they won their Division. Now, the RoughRiders are looking to build on that and make a run at the Texas League title in 2022. The list of players who will be wearing a RoughRiders uniform this season is as exciting and talented a group you’ll find in all Minor League Baseball. The Rangers announced their break camp rosters today (3/21/2022). Here’s the Frisco RoughRiders 2022 roster.
