Fifth starter likely to come from within
Rangers officials were saying Tuesday morning that the fifth starter is likely to come from within the organization. The Rangers are scouting other pitchers – most notably Chris Capuano and Aaron Harang of the Dodgers – but that’s more just doing their normal coverage. One club official said there’s “nothing going on there” at this point. The Rangers aren’t expected to pursue Chris Young either.
Michael Kirkman pitches against the Angels on Wednesday. That’s the most significant development today.
