Rangers still a Rays trade target



Rangers might not be done talking with the Rays.  Rangers have a pitching surplus they may use to upgrade elsewhere.  Headed by Neftali Perez, the Rangers bullpen consists of Alexi Ogando, Darren O'Day, Frank Francisco, Darren Oliver, Michael Kirkman, Arthur Rhodes, and Mark Lowe

The Rangers don't have to trade anyone (send Kirkman to AAA, and carry 12 pitchers) but they are very lefty heavy with O'Day, Oliver, Kirkman and Rhodes.

Francisco was reportedly part of the Rangers proposed package deal for Garza.  Maybe the Rays can get him in a separate deal.  Friedman has already said there are still plenty of players they are looking at on both the free agent and trade market.

As the Rays turn their full attention to their 2011 squad, it's going to be interesting to see what tricks Friedman still has up his sleeve.
