The Rangers are going to be on the hunt for an outfielder (preferably a CF), a backup infielder and a righty reliever before next Sunday’s trade deadline. Taylor Teagarden, Chris Davis, Craig Gentry, Julio Borbon and Arthur Rhodes give the Rangers major league ready ammo to get deals done. Hunter Pence and Ryan Ludwick are likely on the Rangers’ radar with the idea of moving Josh Hamilton back to CF. I don’t think that’s they way the Rangers really want to go though. B.J. Upton, Melky Cabrera, Coco Crisp, Marlon Byrd, David DeJesus and Angel Pagan would allow Hamilton to stay in LF, as they are the best CF’s available this week. The Rangers also were interested in Carlos Beltran but he wants to stay in the National League. The Rangers are looking at guys like Jamey Carroll, Aaron Miles, Blake DeWitt , Mike Aviles and Angel Sanchez to help out the bench. Frank Francisco, Octavio Dotel, Jon Rauch, Jason Frasor, Koji Uehara, Grant Balfour, Kerry Wood and Matt Lindstrom are the kind of righty relievers the Rangers want to trade for. They are looking for a legit set-up man type that could close when Neftali Feliz needs a break. I think the Rangers are going to be a much better team on August 1st than they are right now and that should be scary to the rest of the American League going forward.
