According to the SFGiants.com, the Giants have some interest in free agent starter Brad Penny. Penny, who went 6-9 with a 6.27 ERA in 19 appearances for the Dodgers, won thirty-two games between 2006 and 2007. He would probably command a one year deal in the three to five million dollar range, something the Giants definitely can afford. Sources have informed me that the Rangers are aggressively pursuing some under radar pitchers, as well as guys returning from injury. They believe that young pitchers once considered future stars may be able to turn it around under the supervision of Nolan Ryan and some of the other Rangers coaches and executives.
The Rangers are also in talks with Ben Sheets.
