Ryan meets with Rangers' owners, hasn't quit yet

After Texas Rangers CEO Nolan Ryan met with team co-owners Ray Davis and Bob Simpson Sunday, it appears Ryan will remain the team's CEO for the time being.

Whether he will remain in that position for the long term is still unclear.

Ryan issued a statement on Sunday, according to CBSSports.com, which read: "Over the last week, Ray Davis, Bob Simpson, and I have been in discussion and met in-person. The conversations have been productive, and we have discussed my role as CEO of the organization. We agreed these discussions will continue as we go forward.

"I am very proud of what the Rangers have accomplished over the last several years, and I believe our preparations for upcoming season are what is important."

Several media outlets reported Ryan was not pleased with a front office restructuring that reduced Ryan's power, and it was reported he was considering stepping down.

CBSSports.com reported earlier that Ryan would decide by the end of spring training whether he would quit.

In the past, Ryan has performed many of the tasks a general manager usually performs.

A week ago, Jon Daniels was named general and president of baseball operations for the Rangers, and Rick George, a former PGA Tour executive, was named president of business affairs.

A few days later, it was reported Ryan was considering quitting.
