With A.J. Pierzynski’s days in Chicago over, it figures the new Rangers catcher would unload his Lincoln Park Chicago brownstone for $1,750,000. This place is only two miles from Wrigley Field. If you’re familiar with Chicago, you’d understand why A.J. would live closer to Wrigley than Comiskey or whatever the Sox call that stadium.
According to the realtor:
Texas Rangers CEO Nolan Ryan believes his club can still contend for the American League West crown without slugger Josh Hamilton.
Hamilton signed a five-year, $125 million deal in the
It remains unclear where free agent Kyle Lohse will
ultimately land this offseason, but one American League general manager tells
Nick Cafardo of The Boston Globe that the Texas Rangers “seem to be the most
motivated to get a deal done with him.”
An AL GM predicted, “The Rangers probably have the best shot
at obtaining him. They missed out on a couple of guys. While...
Kyle McClellan is trying quickly to win over what he hopes is his new fan base with the Texas Rangers.
While McClellan played a role in St. Louis getting to the postseason in 2011, he's quick to point out that his right arm played no role in the crushing blow to the Rangers that was the 2011 World Series.
McClellan is hoping to ease some of that pain this year by being a key...
Joe Nathan was shut down yesterday and not allowed to participate in intrasquad games, but Nathan and the Texas Rangers said it was no big deal. Nathan said he was sidelined for precautionary reasons. Even if that's the case, it's concerning that players are only a week into spring since very one reported and Nathan is already being given rest.

Rangers Ready to Get Back to the Business of Baseball
After years of teetering on the edge the Texas Rangers appeared to
step into greatness with back to back trips to the World Series.
last season there was every reason to believe that the third time was going to
be the charm, and for much of the season it appeared like that was the case.
SURPRISE, Ariz. – Coming off an up-and-down 2012 campaign, Mitch Moreland enters this season looking to solidify himself as the Texas Rangers' everyday first baseman. Moreland worked hard in the offseason, dropping some weight and facing a left-handed pitcher on a daily basis.
SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) -- Josh Lindblom has had a unique experience while playing only one full season in the major leagues.
The reliever has already been traded twice for All-Star players.

SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) -- Gold Glove third baseman Adrian Beltre made a throw across the diamond during a fielding drill for the Texas Rangers that was high and beyond the reach of Lance Berkman.
"I thought you were taller. Sorry," Beltre shouted out with a smile to the first baseman.
The veteran Rangers, who both have dealt with right calf issues early in an extended spring...
Elvis Andrus bats leadoff for a very good lineup. Even though he doesn’t have serious gap power, his on-base ability (career .342) and speed (30.75 steals per season) help him wind up in scoring position often. Last year Andrus hit 31 doubles and nine triples and stole 21 bases. Assuming most of those thefts were of second (off singles, walks, or errors), Andrus put himself in...
SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) -- Nolan Ryan laughs when he hears people describe the Texas Rangers offseason as a disaster and the worst in team history.
While the Rangers were unable to re-sign five-time All-Star slugger Josh Hamilton, failed to lure pitcher Zack Greinke to Texas and traded Michael Young, Ryan still expects the team to be very competitive this season because of how they...
We have had to deal with a lot of speculation about the Rangers’ infield this off-season. It is not as if the Rangers are in trouble, they have the “problem” of a looming logjam. Shortstop super-prospect Jurickson Profar is knocking on the door. The Rangers also have Ian Kinsler at second and under contract through 2017, and Elvis Andrus, who is only 24, at shortstop and under...
SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) -- Brandon Wood believes he can still fulfill his potential, and the Kansas City Royals are willing to give him that chance.
Wood hit a two-run homer in the bottom of the ninth inning to give Kansas City a 4-2 victory over the Texas Rangers on Saturday.
When he was 20, Wood set California League records with 43 home runs and 101 extra-base hits in 2005. That...
SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) -- Matt Harrison knew he wasn't going to be as sharp as he was last season, when he won 18 games and made the AL All-Star team. Still, he didn't think his spring training debut would be this bad.
The 27-year-old left-hander gave up four runs on six hits in the first inning as the Texas Rangers lost 7-5 to the Kansas City Royals on Sunday.
