The 2014 Texas Rangers season was the Rangers’ 54th season of the franchise and the 43rd since the team relocated to Arlington, Texas. The Rangers suffered from injuries throughout the season and spent a substantial part of the season in last place in the American League (AL), at one point having a streak of 8–34. Manager Ron Washington resigned on September 5, citing personal issues. The Rangers were unable to escape the AL cellar, but did manage to finish 67–95 and third worst in Major League Baseball (MLB), ahead of the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks of the National League (NL).
