MLB: Texas Rangers at Seattle Mariners Jennifer Buchanan-USA TODAY Sports

The Rangers have added catching depth by signing Jett Bandy to a minor league deal.

Sources close to Adrian Beltre think that a decision on whether or not he will be returning for a 22nd major league season will be coming in the next week.

Scott Boras says that Adrian Beltre will be an above average major leaguer if he decides to come back next season and that he will have multiple teams competing for his services.

Cole Hamels’ quick turnaround with the Cubs is one of the things prompting the Rangers to put money and effort into R&D this offseason.

Jon Daniels said, of Adrian Beltre, that there would be no hard feelings if he chose to play for another team next season, that they have to prepare as though he’s not coming back until they hear otherwise, and that Jurickson Profar will be getting the majority of the playing time at third base as of right now.

Jamey Newberg has some speculation as to why the Rangers didn’t go with Jayce Tingler.
