When the trade deadline passed and Martin Perez and Matt Moore were still on the Rangers roster, former president of baseball operations Jon Daniels said that no offer matched the value the Rangers held for the left-handers and that there was interest in keeping them around.
Daniels had already been talking to Perez about a contract extension, with communication picking up between the All-Star break and the Aug. 2 trade deadline.
Daniels was also working on a Moore extension.
