Johnson, Shields? Maybe, maybe not
With Zack Greinke off the board, the two best pitchers left who are rumored to be available are James Shields of Tampa Bay and Miami’s Josh Johnson.
Are the Rangers turning their attention to those two?
“Not necessarily, no.” according to one source
The Rangers could stay with the rotation they have, knowing that Neftali Feliz could be back within two weeks or they could move Alexi Ogando from the bullpen. Scott Feldman is riding a four-game winning streak.
The Rangers may try to upgrade in other areas.
Or they could see if the price goes down on Shields or Johnson.
But if the rumors are true that the Marlins want a high return on Johnson, they aren’t getting what the Rangers refused to give the Brewers.
