PLAYERS: Ken Rosenthal
TEAMS: Texas Rangers
All signs are that the Texas Rangers have increased their pursuit of free agent right-hander Kyle Lohse following Martin Perez’s broken forearm, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. signs are, #rangers have increased interest in lohse following perez mishap. org has been split (w/coaches in favor) — Jon Heyman (@JonHeymanCBS) March 4, 2013 Heyman adds that the organization appears to be split when it comes to adding Lohse. As far as Heyman can tell, the coaches seem to be in favor of signing the veteran, while the front office is more hesitant. Perez will miss at least two months after his forearm was fractured Sunday during a spring training contest. Texas has said it will first evaluate internal candidates, including Robbie Ross, Randy Wells, Justin Grimm and Nate Robertson. However, none of those pitchers provide the team with as much of a veteran presence or track record as Lohse. It makes sense that the coaches would want to add the right-hander, who would appear to give the team a better shot at contending in 2013. On the other hand, front office members are understandably hesitant to add a 34-year-old that’s seeking a “big” three-year commitment, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports. Beyond the financial obligation, the team that signs Lohse will also have to surrender a high draft pick.  Follow @mlbinjurynews !function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0];if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src="http://www.mlbinjurynews.com//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js";fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,"script","twitter-wjs"); var _gaq = _gaq || []; _gaq.push(['_setAccount', 'UA-34100676-1']); _gaq.push(['_trackPageview']); (function() { var ga = document.createElement('script'); ga.type = 'text/javascript'; ga.async = true; ga.src = ('https:' == document.location.protocol ?
