Rangers Rumors: Team Still Seeking Solutions From Within

Despite the recent onslaught of injuries, the Texas Rangers are still looking to solve their pitching woes from within, reports Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports.

While the Texas Rangers continue to explore trades for starting pitchers, they still believe that they could address their rotation with internal solutions, if necessary.

The Rangers lost right-hander Colby Lewis for the rest of the season this morning to a torn flexor tendon in his throwing elbow. For a team that has already lost significant time from starters Neftali Feliz, Alexi Ogando and Derek Holland, and with Roy Oswalt nursing a sore back, Lewis' injury seems like it might be the final straw.

But with Feliz nearing his return, and the duo of Martin Perez and Scott Feldman holding up the back of the rotation, Texas may continue to rely on their organizational depth rather than attempt to make a trade at the deadline.

If the Rangers do decide to acquire outside help, they are still the favorite in the Cole Hamels sweepstakes if the left-hander does not re-sign with the Phillies.
