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.
Rangers = no ring
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.
I hope there’s still room for Gonzalez. He should get more opportunities to show us what he’s got.
