Rangers president Nolan Ryan discussed possible moves for the defending American League champions and MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan has the details…
- The Rangers are sill interested in adding offense after missing out on Jim Thome.
- “It’s always nice to have a veteran bat off the bench," Ryan said. "It gives you an opportunity late in the game if you don't like the matchups. I'm not sure that person is out there."
- Vladimir Guerrero and Manny Ramirez are probably not fits, Ryan said.
- It’s not realistic for the Rangers to acquire another dependable veteran starter, Ryan said. Instead, the team will rely on Michael Kirkman, Derek Holland and Tommy Hunter to continue developing.
- Extending GM Jon Daniels, whose contract expires after the season, will become a priority in the coming weeks.
