The Rangers have some work to do this offseason, as do a lot of teams. A big priority is their pitching staff. They have holes to fill in both the rotation and bullpen.
It wasn't all bad news in 2012. Yu Darvish emerged as the team's ace and Matt Harrison had a terrific season. However, Derek Holland took a big step back and Neftali Feliz and Colby Lewis had major arm surgeries.
In terms of the bullpen, Mike Adams and Koji Uehara are both free agents, Alexi Ogando has expressed his desire to pitch in the rotation, and Joe Nathan didn't pitch particularly well down the stretch.
This year's free-agent class isn't the deepest, but there are several players the Rangers can target to improve the ball club.
