Darren Oliver Likely To Return To Rangers

Darren Oliver "appears to be headed back" to the Rangers, tweets Jon Heyman of the MLB Network. Heyman says the Red Sox are also in the mix for the left-hander, but "Dallas is home."

Earlier tonight, MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan wrote that the Rangers were in search of left-handed relief, and general manager Jon Daniels' preference was to fill that role with Oliver. The 40-year-old Oliver has spent the last two seasons with Texas, posting a combined 2.40 ERA in 112 2/3 innings with a strong 8.7 K/9 and 2.1 BB/9.

Why are you here?

Alright! We’re getting Oliver back! Everyone else should just give up now.

But on a serious note…I am glad. He’s solid.

Oh. Yay.

I hope there’s still room for Gonzalez. He should get more opportunities to show us what he’s got.
