Jon Daniels doesn’t see realistic starting pitching trade options
The Rangers are rumored to be looking for starting pitching but general manager Jon Daniels doesn’t see that happening.
“I don’t know od there are any realistic fits we are going to pursue,” Daniels said Sunday morning.
Daniels won’t address specific rumors – Cole Hamels being the most mentioned – but said he sees the Rangers five starters coming out of camp.
“Yes I do,” Daniels said. “In addition to the five we will break with, we’ll have several guys at Round Rock who are a phone call away.”
According to sources – Hamel would cost too much money and too many prospects. The prospects are what concern them the most.
Shawn Tolleson was scratched from pitching on Sunday because of some fore arm soreness. Not considered serious.
Shin-Soo Choo is also still out with some tightness in his left triceps muscle.
