Saturday a.m. Rangers things

New, comments

Saturday morning, and for once, there's actually some Ranger-type news out there this weekend morning.

Jeff Wilson writes that, while the Rangers met with Prince Fielder yesterday, a source says Fielder is just a backup plan in case Yu Darvish doesn't sign.

Richard Durrett wonders whether the Rangers could afford to sign both Fielder and Josh Hamilton long-term, or if signing Fielder means letting Hamilton walk after the 2012 season. Evan Grant notes at the DMN that the Rangers have not made much headway with Hamilton on a contract extension beyond 2012, and it is unlikely that the Rangers could afford to sign both Fielder and Hamitlon.

One of the ongoing questions this offseason has been what the Rangers are going to do about centerfield, and Ron Washington says that there's going to be an open competition for playing time in center this spring, with Julio Borbon, Craig Gentry, and Leonys Martin all battling.
