Rangers Rumors: Texas Comfortable with Starting Rotation

While Texas Rangers general manager Jon Daniels told reporters, including Anthony Andro of FOX Sports Southwest, that there are a few players remaining available that could be fits for the club, he is overall “ready to go” with the current crop of players he has on his roster.

"We're ready to go," Texas general manager Jon Daniels said. "There are still some players out there that in the right scenario could fit for us. That's basically our job - put the best team out there. We feel good about where we're at right now. We feel good about our club."

Since they reportedly targeted Zack Greinke, James Shields and Josh Johnson before they landed elsewhere this offseason, it’s been speculated that the Rangers could still be in the market for a starting pitcher. While options such as Kyle Lohse, Joe Saunders and Shaun Marcum remain available, it seems as though Daniels is content entering spring filling the No. 5 spot in his rotation with an in-house candidate.

Texas currently has a projected starting four that includes Matt Harrison, Yu Darvish, Derek Holland and Alexi Ogando. Andro notes that whoever occupies the fifth spot entering the season could simply be a place holder until Colby Lewis is healthy, which could come as early as late May.

Texas’ in-house candidates for the fifth spot include Martin Perez, Justin Grimm and Robbie Ross.
