Player Notes
According to ESPN's Jim Bowden, the Rangers will not be trading left-handed reliever Neal Cotts.

Advice: Cotts got claimed off revocable waivers earlier this week by an American League Central team, but the move was only made to block contenders from landing him. The 34-year-old southpaw will finish out the season in Texas before hitting the free agent market in November. He owns a 3.48 ERA and 58/20 K/BB ratio in 54 1/3 innings this year.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that Neal Cotts has been claimed on revocable waivers by an unnamed team.

Advice: There would seem to be a good chance Cotts is traded, as he could be a useful bullpen piece for a contending team. The left-hander boasts a 3.48 ERA and 58/20 K/BB ratio over 54 1/3 innings this season.
