General manager Jon Daniels told T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com that the Rangers remain in contact with C.J. Wilson, but Jon Paul Morosi of FOXSports.com reports that they’re just one of at least six known teams that have “already expressed interest” in the free agent left-hander.
Morosi names the Yankees, Angels, Blue Jays, Marlins, and Nationals as the other five teams and spoke to “an official with one of the involved clubs” who believes Wilson will get at least a five-year deal.
In other words, his postseason struggles haven’t wrecked Wilson’s value at all.
Sullivan writes that the Rangers “have shown interest in Mark Buehrle, Edwin Jackson, and Roy Oswalt” as potential fallback options to Wilson and they could also decide to replace him by shifting Neftali Feliz from the bullpen to the rotation.
