I read that too a long time ago, but then I was looking at the numbers. It seems to me that it just takes him a little time to get acclimated to each level. Everytime they brought him up, he'd struggle for a bit and then dominate.

I don't expect huge huge things out of him, but in all fairness he hasn't had that many at bats in the major leagues. Less than a full season. And in those years, the Ranger's lineup wasn't what it is now.
I know Teix was there during his first short stint, but that lineup is way deep now.
I don't see why there wouldn't be a decent chance he figures it out. The talent is obviously there.
