NASHVILLE — One thing beat writers do really well is making something out of nothing, which is done out of necessity.
The need arose Monday after Rangers general manager Chris Young said on Day 1 of the winter meetings that he had a whole lot of nothing for the local scribes.
No signings or trades to report, he said at the Gaylord Opryland Resort, but plenty of conversations about signings and trades. Nothing too specific, especially about free agents who played elsewhere in 2023 (read: Shohei Ohtani).
Young reiterated that the Rangers want a proven major-league starting pitcher for the rotation and some relievers to add to the bullpen, an area that he acknowledged needs improvement.
The Rangers have made one bullpen move this season.
