MLB Injury News:
The Texas Rangers are still attempting to determine who
their No. 5 starter will be this season, causing them to inquire about Detroit
Tigers right-hander Rick Porcello on Monday, according to Adam Rubin of ESPN New
The Rangers lost left-hander Martin Perez for two months to a fractured forearm after he was hit by a comebacker during a spring trainingcontest Sunday. He was viewed as one of the favorites to claim the final spot
in Texas’ rotation.
The Rangers have said they will look internally to replace
Perez, as there are several other candidates for the No. 5 spot. But Rubin
points out that one of the other potentials, Justin Grimm, had his second poor
outing of the spring on Sunday. Beyond Grimm, Robbie Ross and Randy Wells are
other candidates for the final spot, along with Nate Robertson.
The Tigers have six starters for five spots after the team
re-signed Anibal Sanchez this offseason. Included in the mix are Porcello,
Sanchez, Justin Verlander, Max Scherzer, Doug Fister and Drew Smyly. If
Porcello is traded, Smyly would likely slide into the team’s No. 5 spot.

2) As we’ve discussed...
