Texas Rangers, Cleveland Indians Interested In Ryan Spilborghs

The Texas Rangers and Cleveland Indians are among the teams looking at free agent outfielder Ryan Spilborghs, according to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports. Spilborghs was recently non-tendered by the Colorado Rockies after they decided his escalating salary wasn't worth paying.

The 32-year-old established himself as a quality fourth outfielder in his first five years with the Rockies, posting a combined .280/.354/.440 line in 1542 plate appearances. Things fell apart in 2011, though, as his numbers dropped across the board and he finished the year hitting .210/.283/.305 in 223 PA's.

Beyond last year's struggles, there are other red flags that hold down his value. While he's played all three outfield spots over the years, his defensive numbers have plummeted over the past couple seasons. He's also flashing the classic Coors Field split that scares many people, with a career .306/.379/.483 (.373 wOBA) line at home and a .239/.313/.366 (.303 wOBA) line away.
