In another sign that outfielder Josh Hamilton isn’t likely to
return, the Texas Rangers are reportedly focusing on free agent right-hander
Zack Greinke, reports Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com.
The Rangers have joined the
fray for Zack Greinke in another sign that superstar outfielder Josh Hamilton’s days in Texas are
While the Los Angeles Angels are viewed as the favorite to
sign Greinke this winter, according to Heyman, the Rangers and Los Angeles
Dodgers figure to offer the Halos competition for the highly coveted
right-hander. Heyman adds that the Washington Nationals could also get in on
the Greinke sweepstakes.

re-sign with the Rangers two things might have to happen; the team misses out
on Greinke and the slugger doesn’t find much of an offer elsewhere.
