The Texas Rangers already had a pitching surplus, and atop of that they signed free agent Roy Oswalt last week. According to Jon Heyman of CBSSports the Rangers will shop right-handed pitchers Scott Feldman and Mark Lowe. Heyman adds that the Rangers are looking for a right handed hitting outfielder in return. Among the right handed hitting outfielders that could be available we have Carlos Quentin (Padres), Alfonso Soriano (Cubs), David DeJesus (Cubs), and Jeff Francoeur (Royals). Quentin is off to a hot start with a .873 wOBA, but in just three games so far. He missed 49 games at the beginning of the season due to a knee surgery. Soriano, with a .321 wOBA season is having a decent year, and in the last 14 days he's been hitting .308/.372/.744 with 5 HR's, 8 RBI's and a 1.116 OPS, so he could be a good choice, although the Cubs will have to eat most of the money owed to him- at least 80% according to Heyman. DeJesus is also a good choice. In 2012 he's hitting .288/.379/.412 with 1 HR, 10 RBI's, .341 wOBA and a 117 OPS+. Francoeur is hitting .280/.327/.450 with 5 HR's, 15 RBI's, .327 wOBA and a 112 OPS+, so he could also be a good fit for them. Image by Keith Allison under the Creative Commons License Agreement.
