Report: Texas Rangers Interested In Reacquiring John Danks

A major-league source told Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal and Jon Paul Morosi that the Texas Rangers could attempt to reacquire left-handed pitcher John Danks, who started his career in the Rangers organization.

The Rangers are working diligently to evaluate the available left-handed starters, a major-league source said Friday. One name that’s high on their list: Chicago White Sox southpaw John Danks, who began his career in the Texas organization. The White Sox are trying to move payroll, and Danks is a prime candidate to be dealt.

Rangers LHP C.J. Wilson is a free agent, and while the club could re-sign him, they're working through contingency plans as well. A potential trade for Danks is one of them. The Rangers are also considering moving closer Neftali Feliz into the rotation.
