Nick Cafardo with a couple Rangers' Blurbs:
5. Rich Harden, RHP, Texas — Nolan Ryan was warned by many that Harden wasn’t going to be much of an innings guy when he was acquired essentially to replace Kevin Millwood (traded to Baltimore) in the Texas rotation. So far, those experts are right. Harden has thrown 43 2/3 innings in nine starts, lasting only five innings or fewer in five of them. The Rangers bullpen is incredibly overworked, and suffice to say they are out there looking for a starting pitcher. Good luck.
6. Mike Lowell, 3B/1B/DH — A Rangers official told me last week he’d love to get Lowell in Texas. Based on Lowell’s performance to start the season, he would appear to be a good fit; the Rangers are looking for a righthanded hitter who can produce.
