The Texas Rangers acquired first basemen/outfielders Zach Reks and Billy McKinney from the Los Angeles Dodgers for cash.

What does it give the Texas Rangers
Both Reks and McKinney can play first base and the corner outfield positions. Therefore, they could compete for the same roster spot with Texas in spring training next season.

What does it give the Los Angeles Dodgers
The Dodgers did some housecleaning with this move by sending two similar players to the Rangers for cash. Neither Reks nor McKinney had much of a shot at regular playing time in 2022 anyway.

Fantasy impact
Neither Reks nor McKinney is a recommendable fantasy option for 2022. Therefore, avoid them on draft day.
