After adding right-handed reliever Chris Ray, the Texas Rangers could get Rich Harden for their preliminary rotation. Both major events are happening in subsequent to give up No. 1 starter Kevin Millwood. Actually, the team traded Kevin Millwood to Orioles to get Chris Ray. And later at the Winter Meetings, Texas Rangers will be getting again another player and thereâ€™s high possibility that he could be the third pick at the Rule 5 Draft happening Thursday.
Meanwhile the Rangers got a savings of about $7 million after picking up $3 million out of Millwood’s $12 million salary for 2010. This is why the Rangers could get Rich Harden a one-year deal worth $7.5 million. The amount is negotiable to $11.5 million by 2011.
