Saturday morning Rangers news and links

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning, everyone...

The S-T has a story with quotes from Tanner Scheppers, Keone Kela and Shawn Tolleson, who were at a Rangers caravan event Friday.  Kela says his elbow is fine, and Scheppers wants to get himself back in the Rangers' bullpen plans.

T.R. Sullivan has a story on Tolleson's offseason and thoughts on the upcoming season.

Gerry Fraley looks at Marcell Ozuna and Justin Upton, and why the Rangers might view them as upgrades over Delino DeShields and Josh Hamilton, respectively.

David Schoenfield predicts that the Rangers will end up signing Justin Upton.  That seems...unlikely.

Fraley has a story on Kela, how the break the Rangers gave him last season will help him, and how he fits in the 2016 bullpen.

Kevin Sherrington says that if Jurickson Profar bounces back in 2016, the Rangers could pay $10M per year on Elvis Andrus's contract in order to get another team to take him.  That seems excessive, though...I tend to think that even the biggest anti-Elvis folks don't think paying $10M per year to give him away makes sense.
