Ryan Dempster finally has a chance to start for the Texas Rangers. Traded Tuesday from the Chicago Cubs, Dempster arrived in the Metroplex about 1:30 p.m. Wednesday and spent the remainder of the afternoon getting adjusted to his fourth major league team - the one that drafted him in the third round in 1995 out of a high school in British Columbia. He was traded as a minor leaguer and made his big league debut with the Florida Marlins in 1998. ''It's neat to get drafted by them as an 18-year-old kid and to end up back here pitching,'' Dempster said.
