Rangers, Astros Eyeing Brett Myers

The Rangers and Astros have interest in free agent righty Brett Myers, according to ESPN's Jerry Crasnick.  Myers, 29, posted a 4.84 ERA in 70.6 innings this year, working around hip surgery.  We learned last month that the Phillies won't be re-signing Myers, who is open to starting or relieving in 2010.

For the Astros, using Myers in the rotation would probably mean bumping Felipe Paulino.  The Astros' rotation actually isn't too bad, but added depth would be nice.  The Astros could use back-end bullpen help as well, with the statuses of Jose Valverde and LaTroy Hawkins up in the air.

Crasnick names Myers and J.J. Putz as pitchers on the Rangers' radar; they're apparently hoping to sign a pitcher to an incentive-based deal.  The Rangers have good rotation depth, so Myers might fit better in the bullpen.
