Texas has the second-worst record in the league at 38-52 and when the Rangers start selling off veterans near the trade deadline T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports that relievers Jason Frasor and Neal Cotts will likely be on the block.

Frasor and Cotts are both having good season and they’re both impending free agents, so contenders looking for bullpen help without having to overpay to acquire it figure to target them.

Frasor, who’ll be 37 years old next month, has a 2.86 ERA and 29/13 K/BB ratio in 28 innings after being similarly effective for the Rangers last season. He has a long track record as a solid setup man from the right side.

Cotts’ track record isn’t quite as impressive, but he was nearly unhittable for much of last season and this season the left-hander has a 3.65 ERA and 44/14 K/BB ratio in 37 innings.

    Better move them soon before their arms fall off from pitching every night.

    Jon Daniels need to be given the boot by Rangers’ ownership!

      Yeah! He needs to quit hurting those players!

        He needs to quit making horrible trades. He gave away the farm the last 2 years, for sub-replacement level performance from Dempster and Garza. He traded Adrian Gonzalez for 2 purees and a cats-eye marble. He gave up Chris Davis and Tommy Hunter for a few awful appearances from Uehara. He has drafted 10 duds in the 1st round since 2006. The team he inherited is gone, and his replacements?

        They stink and the Astros are running wild over them, as are all the other teams in the AL and NL.

        Daniels and Washington need to hit the road, Jack.

    Yeah, it’s clearly Wash’s fault. If he were a better manager Harrison, Perez and Holland would never have been injured.
