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. Despite finishing the season with a 13-3 stretch, 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).

The Rangers used 40 different pitchers during the season, thus setting a new MLB record.[1][2] The team played seven extra inning games, the fewest of any MLB team in 2014.[3]
