Rangers Rumors: Oliver, Pujols, Fielder, Cespedes, Nathan, Feliz

Rangers updates:

  • Rangers focus on building bullpen - Star-Telegram
    "Darren Oliver could be the first reliever signed. The 41-year-old has indicated that he wants to make 2012 his final season, and he wants it to be with the Rangers."
  • Rangers still open to Wilson; Will Not Pursue Pujols, Fielder, Cespedes - T.R. Sullivan
    "They are not planning to get involved in either Albert Pujols or Prince Fielder although they are keeping their options open. The Rangers are also not likely to get involved with Cuban outfielder Yeonis Cespedes although they have scouted him."
  • Signing All-Star closer Nathan sets Rangers in motion - Star-Telegram
    "The Rangers signed Nathan, who was born in Houston, to a two-year, $14 million deal that will pay him $7 million each season. The Rangers have a $9 million option for 2014 that comes with a $500,000 buyout. His salary in 2012 and the $400,000-plus that Feliz will make is roughly the same amount the Rangers paid Wilson in 2011. Wilson, who met with officials from the Angels on Monday, is expected to command at least twice his 2011 salary as part of a multi-year free-agent deal."
  • Nathan Signing Adds Feliz as a Starter - Lone Star Ball
    "Feliz as a starter was something that appeared iffy at best despite the organization's stated desire to make the move. Now, with Nathan signed to be the closer, the Rangers have officially committed to transitioning Feliz's talents back to that of a starting pitcher."
