    • there has been talk of it, but I (this is just me) think he'll end up in the bullpen. he's too young (only 21) and has too good of an arm to run out there are gas him already. he might get a 7-8 spot starts if someone gets hurt or struggles. but i think the rangers would be stupid to keep him in the rotation all year. he could be treated similar to joba chamberlain (42 games and 12 starts his second year).

    • you might need power help, but besides that you should be ok. you seem to have lots of speed, so you may want to look at trading speed for power.

      may also be a little weak when it comes to wins too, and have lots of depth for saves. i don't think you need 3 ranger relievers, i'd get rid of wilson, if fransico falters, feliz will get the 1st chance to take over.

      waiver wire should be lots of help
