Moreland, Lewis, Cruz updates
General manager Jon Daniels said the Rangers are getting some interest in first baseman Mitch Moreland from other clubs, viewing him as a “buy low” candidate.
Daniels said the Rangers have made an offer to pitcher Colby Lewis and are waiting to hear back from him.
Daniels said the Rangers are expecting Nelson Cruz to reject their qualifying offer on Monday and test the free agent market. He has been in touch with Cruz’s agent Adam Katz.
Daniels confirmed the Rangers are willing to talk about their middle infielders because it is an area of depth for them. He said other teams still have a high regard for infielder Jurickson Profar.
