The Texas Rangers’ offseason has been fairly quiet so far in 2013.
It is quite similar to last year, where Texas was linked to marquee names in the free-agent market. This year, they have been rumored to be in the running for players such as Jacoby Ellsbury and Brian McCann.
Moves can still be made that will cause big noise. The team is linked to players like Nelson Cruz and David Price, and may even be the front-runner to ink Shin-Soo Choo. And since Texas is looking for another outfielder, don’t be surprised if either Cruz or Choo land in Arlington.
We’re going to grade some of the moves the Rangers have made thus far. Grades will be given on whether or not a need was filled and the caliber of the player.
Players signed to minor league deals will not be graded.
