  20. The Rangers have been scouting Darwin Barney

    Darwin Barney Getty

    There is a pretty big demand for middle infielders among contending teams these days. The Yankees, the Tigers and now the Rangers either have age, injury or simple lack of quality to contend with among their infielders.
