Rangers Rumors: Texas Best Fit for Nick Swisher?

Now that Josh Hamilton has signed with the Los Angeles Angels, rival evaluators are speculating that the best remaining free agent fit for the Texas Rangers is outfielder/first baseman Nick Swisher, reports Buster Olney of ESPN.

So far this offseason the Rangers have watched Hamilton and fellow free agent slugger Mike Napoli sign elsewhere. They didn’t sign the market’s top starting pitcher in Zack Greinke, and they don’t appear to be in the running for right-hander Anibal Sanchez.

At this point the Rangers would seem to need offense and their options on the free agent market are dwindling. Swisher is the top bat remaining, while Michael Bourn and A.J. Pierzynski represent other potential targets.

Of course general manager Jon Daniels could get crafty, as he’s known to do, and start up talks once again with the Arizona Diamondbacks for their young and talented outfielder Justin Upton.
