They want to put Ogando in the rotation, so yes they do need a reliever

SP should come first, they should leave Ogando where he is and go after a SP, i think..

Ridiculous. Unless it’s for one of Texas’s current starters or top 5 prospects, this should not happen. Twins have very few blue chips and the cheap ones they do have like Burton here need to stay in house.

Blue chips? Burton’s a 31-year-old with a massive platoon split that’s coming off major surgery. You don’t build around a guy like that, and the Rangers definitely aren’t taking someone from their rotation and trading them for him.

If they can even get a “B” prospect for him, Terry Ryan makes that deal.
