Some stuff to check out as the afternoon is turning into evening...

Sam Miller has an interesting story on the Angels' recruitment and negotiations with C.J. Wilson and Albert Pujols. The Rangers appear to have been a non-factor with Wilson, with Anaheim and Florida showing the most interest, and Florida offering 6 years, $100 million.

Kevin Goldstein has a piece on prospects whose stock rose in winter ball, and both Mike Olt and Tanner Scheppers are among those discussed.

At SI, Albert Chen has a story on the Rangers' tricky situation as it relates to Josh Hamilton and a potential contract extension.

Jon Heyman says that the Rangers and Oswalt "really like each other," but Oswalt would have to agree to "their price," because he's not exactly a fit for Texas.

And Yoenis Cespedes is officially a free agent, which means that teams can begin bidding on him. And if the Rangers think that they are unlikely to keep Josh Hamilton around long-term, they could end up going after Cespedes aggressively as a potential middle-of-the-order bat.
