Rangers Relievers Drawing Interest

Teams seeking bullpen depth have started calling the Rangers about possible trades, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports. The Rangers may be able to part with a right-handed reliever now that left-hander Robbie Ross has made a strong case for a 25-man roster spot.

Right-handers Koji Uehara and Mark Lowe may be expendable in trades. They’ll earn $4MM and $1.7MM, respectively, before hitting free agency next offseason. The Rangers are still looking for a middle infielder who can play short and a right-handed hitting outfielder for the bench, according to Grant.

      Mark Lowe…I remember watching you pitch in the 2011 World Series and grooved the ball down broadway for Freese to take yard and force game 7… Since I’m a Ranger fan my memories of Lowe are forever tainited

        I say it’s Uehara to the Art Institute of America

    Ramiro Pena and Justin Maxwell for Uehara?

    • Why? Keeping Koji would be more productive for Texas than trading him to the Yankees for scrubs.

        I assume he’s suggesting that Pena and Maxwell fit the SS-playing middle infielder and right-handed-hitting outfielder profile. But your question remains…

        • I get that, but those two aren’t worth the depth of our bullpen.

            After losing CJ Wilson, having dominant relievers becomes more important. The Rangers would be better off to keep Uehara for the season.

  3. Nishioka for Lowe.

    still dont know if Ross will be ready tho..

      Seeing him in ST, he’s more than ready. Question is, do they see him as a starter long term and want to keep him in the minors. I personally think his best potential is as a lefty out of the pen.
