SAN DIEGO — The rotation is filled, or maybe it’s not.
That answer will determine how the Rangers move forward with their bullpen.
An upgrade is being sought in left field.
There’s probably other stuff on the to-do list, but that’s as far as general manager Chris Young would go over three days at the 2022 MLB winter meetings.
He and other officials left the Manchester Grand Hyatt on Wednesday in what served as the last day of the winter meetings. They have a new pitcher to introduce Thursday at Globe Life Field.
Welcoming right-hander Jacob deGrom will be quite a victory lap, and the Rangers are one of the winners so far this offseason.
That guarantees zilch for the 2023 season, and the Rangers know that. They also know they have work to do if they want to be winners for the first time since 2016.
Keep in mind, the Rangers won only 68 games in 2022.
There’s a lot of work to do.
