Rangers Won’t Pursue Top Free Agents, Will Deal

Rangers GM Jon Daniels tells Jeff Wilson of the Dallas Morning News that he will look to improve his team by remaining active in trade talks. The Rangers are looking for relievers and a right-handed bat, but don't expect them to go after top-tier free agents.

Instead, they expect to be involved in trade talks, though Daniels is in "no hurry" to trade away the pitching depth that kept his club in the pennant race late into this past season.

On another note, the Rangers, who will likely open next season with a payroll under $70MM, do have interest in bringing Milton Bradley back, but only if the Cubs take on a considerable portion of the $21MM remaining on the outfielder's contract.
