Hot stove is getting going.
Rangers add righty Gibson to rotation. What's next? --> https://www.mlb.com/rangers/news/rangers-offseason-plans-after-kyle-gibson
He was one possibility for Texas at 3rd. Down to Donaldson or Rendon in FA. Andjuar is rumored as a trade target.
If fully healed, Andujar is intriguing.
Rangers Rumors: Rendon, Wheeler
December 2nd, 2019 at 8:01pm CST • By Connor Byrne
The Rangers missed the playoffs for the third straight year in 2019, but with a new ballpark set to open next season, it appears they’re serious about returning to contention immediately. The Rangers gave right-handed starter Kyle Gibson a three-year, $30MM guarantee last week, though that deal could pale in comparison to the highest award they dole out this winter. The club’s in pursuit of the best free-agent position player on the market in third baseman Anthony Rendon, as it met with him and agent Scott Boras in Houston on Sunday, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports. The Rangers haven’t made a contract offer yet, per Grant, but “several executives” have indicated they’re the favorites to sign him, Bob Nightengale of USA Today sports tweets.
Signing Rendon would likely mean doling out a guarantee well above $200MM, though it could help the Rangers’ cause that he’s a Texas native. Rendon’s by far the best unsigned third baseman in the game, but between their interest in him and Josh Donaldson, it’s clear the Rangers are serious about finding their first great option at the position since potential Hall of Famer Adrian Beltre retired after the 2018 season.
Texas, however, isn’t just considering a splash at the hot corner. Rather, the Rangers could pick up yet another high-profile starter even after signing Gibson. It’s “believed” that they’ve recently met with free-agent right-hander Zack Wheeler, according to Grant. Wheeler, who could cost around $100MM in free agency, would add another formidable arm to a rotation that has taken an obvious step forward with the acquisition of Gibson. Those two would presumably join Mike Minor, Lance Lynn and Kolby Allard to give the Rangers a rather imposing top five heading into 2020.
I’d love for the Rangers to actually close the deal w Rendon. That would be a huge piece going into next season. Still think they need another big arm at the front of their rotation to be a serious playoff team. Minor pitched out of his mind this past season IMO. I know his spin rate numbers justify it, but I’m just not sure I expect him to repeat those stats again in 2020.
Rendon would be awesome but that means less money to add a frontline starter. I would think.
Maybe there will be a banana stand in the new ballpark.
I get the feeling ownership has said spend whatever with the new park opening
Just for you Phormer lol.
Emily doesn't look too bad in that picture.
Nice tribute to the Oilers, IMO
scheissing Rangers better start making some moves and stop worrying about what they're going to wear.
Interesting...I thought Hamels may be able to get a 2 year deal.
Not surprising on Wheeler.
Are there any decent closers available. I can't take another year of LeClerc. I'm sure they're going to give his ass another chance because of the contract they gave him last year but I hope not.
