Tuesday Morning Texas Rangers Update

See you Yoon? - Chung Sung-Jun

The number one source for all your Yoon rumors

Good morning.

First up, Evan Grant writes that the Rangers are in the hunt for Korean free agent pitcher Suk-Min Yoon presumably to fill the hole left in the rotation after Derek Holland decided to play hockey with his dog.

In fact, among other notes from the day, Drew Davison writes that Rangers' brass will get a look at a Yoon bullpen session in Surprise today.

Yoon lands as today's subject of Richard Durrett's Hot Stove Talk. Durrett profiles the slight Korean right-hander and notes that the Rangers are one of around five teams in the mix.

By the way, when Jeff Passan ranked the top 200 free agents this winter, he had Yoon at No. 35. Two spots down at No. 37? New Oakland Athletic Scott Kazmir.

Anthony Andro has a piece on the Rangers officially announcing the signing of Daniel Bard and announcing that they have signed Mr. Imperfect Armando Galarraga to a minor league deal.

T.R. Sullivan also writes about Bard, Galarraga, and various other news items. Among them, the news that the Rangers have invited Rougned Odor to Major League camp for Spring Training.

Because I know Tepid is watching:

MLB.com's Roger Schlueter is not a local writer. Roger Schlueter is a national writer. Therefore, enjoy this article from Roger Schlueter about a bunch of awesome things that Yu Darvish did in 2013.

Durrett continues his Spring Training position preview by taking a look at the coaches who will man the ship for skipper Ron Washington this season. I almost forgot that Bengie Molina is back!

Speaking of Ron Washington, Gerry Fraley once again wants to make it clear that Washington is thus far entering the 2014 season without a contract extension.

Kevin Sherrington held a chat form the DMN. Here is a transcript with some of the baseball Q&A highlights. I'd avoid the full chat transcript because it includes a lot of questions about sports that are not baseball.

Gabe Kapler, the skyrocketing rookie of the ex-player/baseball columnist scene, has written a solid article on Michael Young's ascension to clubhouse legend.

Lastly, as proof that not all articles are turds meant for our punchbowls, Fraley updates us on the status of catcher Robinson Chirinos who escaped major injury.
