Tuesday Morning Texas Rangers Update

The latest news on the Rangers and Boca Raton

Peter Llewellyn-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Evan Grant writes about Jon Daniels in Florida for the GM meetings this week where he hopes to lay the foundation for his offseason plans.

JD tells Brian McTaggart that the Rangers have the flexibility this winter which is GM speak for 'no, you sweeten the pot."

T.R. Sullivan writes that Prince Fielder won what I think is his 37th Comeback Player of the Year award in the last week. This one comes via the Players Choice Awards.

Grant takes a look at where the rotation stands and concludes that the Rangers could use another starter (with Colby Lewis and Yovani Gallardo on the market and virtually all upper level minor league starter depth shipped off to Philly to acquire Cole Hamels) but they could also have one of the best rotations in the league by May when Yu Darvish returns.

Among some notes by Stefan Stevenson is word that Darvish will be heading back to Japan for the next six weeks during a scheduled rest period in his rehab.

Former scout Bernie Pleskoff takes a crack at scouting Sweet Lew Brinson and it seems he really likes what he sees.

In an Insider post from Buster Olney, Mike Napoli ranks among the top bargain free agents out there this winter.

Finally, Jeff Sullivan wants to know how you felt about the Rangers' season in 2015 over at Fangraphs.

Have a nice day.
