MLB: Texas Rangers at Oakland Athletics Neville E. Guard-USA TODAY Sports

Steele Walker is super stoked to be joining the Rangers, rooted for the Rangers growing up and remembers fondly the two World Series runs... sigh... when he was in middle school.

Scouting reports on Walker describe a guy with a high floor, no standout tools but someone who should develop quickly.

White Sox reporter James Fegan, in an article profiling Walker, paints a picture of a colorful character.

Levi Weaver wonders if Nomar Mazara will figure it out in Chicago or if he’ll be exactly what the last four seasons showed us he’d be.

Evan Grant says that the Rangers need to get on the horn to Colorado and see what it would take to get Nolan Arenado.

Jeff Wilson also mentions Arenado as well as Yankees’ third baseman Miguel Andujar if Josh Donaldson slips through our fingers, as well.

T.R. Sullivan tells us that with the Rendon circus over, the Rangers are shifting their attention to Josh Donaldson and a right handed platoon partner for Ronald Guzman.

Commissioner Rob Manfred says that his office has reviewed over 76,000 emails, countless Tik-Toks and Hinge DM’s, and interviewed 60 witnesses in the Astros’ sign-stealing investigation.
