Ken Rosenthal from FOX Sports says that the Texas Rangers might prefer to keep their pitching staff instead of possibly trading some of it away, as it has been rumored. The Rangers have one of the deepest pitching staffs in baseball.

Rosenthal listed Scott Feldman, Koji Uehara and Mark Lowe as expendable pitchers that the Rangers would consider trading. He says that they will remain on the roster more than likely unless prospect Tanner Scheppers can steal a spot.

Feldman might be the most likely to be traded, as Alexi Ogando can rotate from the rotation to the bullpen and replace Feldman's role, and he is the type of long guy/sixth starter that teams are always on the hunt for.

However, they could be content on just keeping all of these guys, because as we know, you can never have enough pitching with the possibilities of unexpected struggles and injuries.
