The right-hander will be the Rangers' primary target this winter.

The Texas Rangers are planning to make right-hander Zack Greinke one of their main pursuits this winter, reports T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com:

[T]his is still an organization that wants to build around pitching. That's where the club wants to spend its money. Look for the Rangers to be one of the major pursuers for Greinke this winter in an attempt to reinforce their rotation.

The Rangers went hard after Greinke at the trade deadline but lost out to their division rival, the Los Angeles Angels, forcing the club to settle for Ryan Dempster instead. The Angels are also expected to strongly pursue Greinke this offseason, and the club may have an upper hand with the exclusive negotiating period they get with the 28-year-old right-hander.

The Rangers' pitching staff cobbled together another strong season in 2012, but was hampered for most of the year by the injury bug, forcing the club to put ten different starters on the mound.
