“Mike Minor is the only pitcher that isn’t absolutely terrible, why would the Rangers trade him?” Yeah, it probably won’t happen. But there is a chance it could. There are only a couple FA pitchers this offseason worth giving significant money to, and most teams just don’t have that monetary flexibility. Expect the Rangers to trade Minor if a team needing a back-end SP offers some solid prospects. This delay’s the Rangers’ competing window, but it also my make them better in the long run.
