The latest news and notes on the back-to-back American League West Champion Texas Rangers

MLB: Oakland Athletics at Texas Rangers Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning.

Jeff Todd of MLB Trade Rumors looks at three needs remaining for each AL West team with Texas looking for a 1B/DH type, a starter, and bullpen clarity.

Cliff Corcoran lists the top five remaining free agents and their best fit with a certain bat flippin’ Rougned Odor punching bag making the list as a fit for the Rangers.

Buster Olney examines contending teams that still have work to do ($$) and concludes that the Rangers still need 1B help. Help like Mike Napoli.

However, as Samuel Hale writes, when it comes to reunions with beloved but aging baseball players: you either leave a hero, or return to see yourself become the villain.

T.R. Sullivan writes that the Rangers came to their senses and officially decided against trying Matt Bush out as a starter this spring.

Finally, Matt Kelly of MLB dot com takes a look at the milestones that could be set in 2017 and it’s basically just an Adrian Beltre victory lap.

Have a good day!
