Jacob deGrom signs with Rangers

What a HORRIFIC contract! It’s an expensive contract that bases value on hope. The Rangers HOPE he can be healthy enough to provide them value. It’s the kind of contract that gets a GM fired.

DeGrom turns 35 next June. He pitched 64.1 innings in 2022 and 92 innings in 2021.

I expect they went five years to lower the AAV. Of course, it’s a great contract for DeGrom, especially considering he’ll pay no state tax when he pitches in Texas.

It’s a shocker for sure.

Although it might not seem like it now, the Rangers did Mets fans a favor.

The Rangers pulled off a stunner ahead of next week’s Winter Meetings, signing ace right-hander Jacob deGrom to a five-year free-agent contract on Friday night. The deal will pay deGrom $185 million, a source told MLB.com; the club has not confirmed the value of the contract.

Rangers hire Mike Maddux (pitching coach), Dayton Moore (adviser)

The Texas Rangers hired Mike Maddux as their new pitching coach Wednesday, and added former Kansas City Royals general manager Dayton Moore as a senior adviser in their baseball operations department.

Maddux is returning to Texas to be on new manager Bruce Bochy’s staff. Maddux was first the pitching coach for the Rangers from 2009 to ‘15, a span in which they made their only two World Series appearances. He spent the past five seasons with the St. Louis Cardinals, and has been part of 11 playoffs teams over his past 15 seasons as a pitching coach.

Moore spent the past 16 years with the Royals, where he was named GM in May 2006 and also served as president of baseball operations before getting fired in September. The Royals had three consecutive 100-loss seasons before Moore’s arrival. They won back-to-back American League pennants in 2014 and 2015, beating the New York Mets for the World Series title after the second one.

Mike Maddux emerges as lead candidate for Rangers pitching coach

The Rangers may be about to land their first significant pitching free agent of the winter.

According to multiple voices around the organization, veteran pitching coach Mike Maddux has emerged as the leading candidate for a significant role with the organization. He likely would function as pitching coach, but GM Chris Young recently said he hoped to build out a more well-rounded pitching department in which roles could be defined more non-traditionally.

Texas Rangers to host 2024 All-Star Game at Globe Life Field

Major League Baseball commissioner Rob Manfred announced at the conclusion of Thursday’s ownership meetings in New York that the Rangers’ bid, co-sponsored by the cities of Arlington and Fort Worth, had been selected to host the 94th All-Star Game at Globe Life Field in 2024. The game is scheduled for July 16.

The Rangers have previously hosted one other All-Star Game, the 1995 Midsummer Classic, which was won by the National League on MVP Jeff Conine’s eighth-inning home run. It was played in the second season at what was then The Ballpark in Arlington.

Braves trade Jake Odorizzi to Rangers for Kolby Allard

The Atlanta Braves re-acquired left-hander Kolby Allard, their former first-round draft pick, from the Texas Rangers on Wednesday for right-hander Jake Odorizzi and cash.

Allard, 25, was Atlanta’s top choice, No. 14 overall, in the 2015 draft. He was 1-2 with a 7.29 ERA in 10 relief appearances last season while also spending time at Triple-A Round Rock.

Odorizzi, 32, was an All-Star with Minnesota in 2019, when he had a career-best 15 wins.

Bochy named Rangers manager, signs 3-year deal

Bochy, 67, is one of only 10 managers in Major League history to have guided teams to at least three World Series titles, and the other nine individuals on that list have all been elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame (see separate chart). Bochy’s Giants won the World Series in 2010 (vs. Texas), 2012 (vs. Detroit), and 2014 (vs. Kansas City). He is one of 5 managers in MLB history to lead a team to three titles in a five-year span, joining Connie Mack, Joe McCarthy, Casey Stengel, and Joe Torre. He has 2003 career wins as a manager, 12th-most in Major League history, and he needs just 38 more wins to crack the top 10 in that category. Bochy’s 25 years as a manager are T10th-most all-time.

Research indicates that this is just the third time an individual has ever been hired to manage a team which he had previously beaten as a manager in the World Series. Bochy’s Giants beat the Rangers in the 2010 World Series. Joe Girardi managed the Phillies from 2020-22 after having previously beaten the team as Yankees manager in the 2009 Fall Classic. Johnny Keane managed the Yankees in 1965-66 after piloting the Cardinals’ 1964 World Series win over New York-AL.

Bochy has spent each of his 25 years as manager with National League West clubs San Diego (1995-2006) and San Francisco (2007-19), as Texas will be his first American League post and first managing job outside of California. The 1996 National League Manager of the Year, he has also posted a top three finish for the award in five other seasons. Bochy crossed paths with Rangers General Manager Chris Young in 2006, his final year as manager of the Padres and Young’s first season as a pitcher in San Diego.

Bruce Bochy meets with Texas Rangers amid search for new manager, per report

The Texas Rangers are one of several teams looking to hire a new manager this offseason, having fired Chris Woodward in August after close to three disappointing seasons. Consider it a notable development, then, that general manager Chris Young reportedly met on Thursday with former San Francisco Giants skipper Bruce Bochy, according to The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal.

Bochy, 67, stepped away from the dugout in 2019, ending a 13-season run at the helm of the Giants that saw him win 50 percent of his regular-season games. Bochy became a legend in San Francisco, leading them to three World Series championships, every other year from 2010-14.

Prior to his time with the Giants, Bochy spent 12 years guiding the San Diego Padres, winning 49.4 percent of his regular-season games and the 1998 National League pennant.

Bochy’s rumored interest in a comeback has been a source of speculation within the league for some time. He recently added fuel to the fire by telling John Shea of the San Francisco Chronicle of a potential return to managing: “I am working for the Giants now but don’t think you can rule anything out.”

Texas Rangers part ways with several pitching coaches in bid to spark rapid improvement

Once again, the Rangers are remaking the staff that handles their pitching. Eventually, they will still have to get around to the pitching staff.

On Thursday, less than 24 hours after the season was completed, the Rangers made changes to the major league staff. While neither of co-pitching coaches Doug Mathis nor Brendan Sagara will return to the major league staff for a third season, Sagara was offered another position inside the organization.

The Rangers ranked 23rd in the majors in ERA (4.51) over the last two years. Home runs doomed the pitchers last year; walks in 2022. The next pitching coach will be the fourth since Mike Maddux left after 2015. Oh, how long ago that was.

But the remake hardly stops there. The Rangers are also making changes at Triple-A where Bill Simas spent the last two years. Two weeks ago, the Rangers informed Double-A Frisco pitching coach Jeff Andrews he also would not return.

Josh Johnson, who joined the major league staff in a temporary role after manager Chris Woodward was fired, will return to player development.

The rest of the staff has been invited back to the major league staff in role to be determined after the club’s managerial search is completed. The Rangers are expected to officially interview Tony Beasley, who finished out the year as interim manager, for the full-time job on Friday.

Rangers’ quest for pitching could lead them to Jacob deGrom

The Rangers are intent on adding a big-time starter, and word is they may go for Jacob deGrom. Folks marvel at how MLB’s best pitcher is throwing better than ever off his 13-month layoff, and while there aren’t a lot of teams ready to take a $40 million gamble, the Rangers might.

Rangers baseball president Chris Young wouldn’t address any specific pitching targets but said they “will leave no stone unturned” in their search to upgrade pitching a year after they significantly upgraded offense.

There’s been a lot of speculation about whether the DeLand, Fla., product deGrom prefers to leave New York and go south, though most speculation centers on the Braves. From here it’s hard to see a corporate team taking that risk….

It’s a sad day when the Royals let go baseball president Dayton Moore, a fantastic baseball guy who remains the only true small-market GM to reach two straight World Series and win one. The firing surprised him, too. Expectations there were unrealistic. Moore always joked he was the only GM from Garden City Community College (he also graduated George Mason); the trend is toward Ivy Leaguers. Manager Mike Matheny, who doesn’t seem favored by players, would seem to be in peril now.

Rangers call up 3B prospect Josh Jung for remainder of the 2022 season

The Rangers on Friday will purchase the contract of 2019 first-round selection Josh Jung from Triple-A Round Rock, a person with knowledge of the club’s thinking said Wednesday. The 24-year-old third baseman joins them for the remainder of the season after shoulder surgery nearly wiped out his entire 2022 season. Presumably, this is not just a casual look. The Rangers expect him to be in the majors for good.

Jung was slashing .273/.321/.525/.841 with six homers in 23 games and 99 plate appearances for Round Rock. Ironically, Jung had been in a bit of a slump since September started. He was 1 for 4 on Wednesday against Oklahoma City, but has gone just 4 for 25 with no homers or walks in his last six games. He had 14 strikeouts.

Jung, who attended Texas Tech, has left little doubt about his readiness for the majors. In 257 Triple-A plate appearances over the last two years, Jung has slashed .317/.389/.600/.989 with 15 homers.

The only hold up has been injury-related. Jung missed the first portion of last season with a foot injury that required surgery. Just ahead of spring training this year, he suffered a weight-lifting injury that required a surgical repair on his left (non-throwing) shoulder. At the time, the Rangers said he’d likely not play third base this season but did leave open the possibility of return. He has exceeded all rehab schedules.

Jon Daniels dismissed by Rangers; Chris Young to run baseball ops

The Rangers on Wednesday announced that Jon Daniels has been relieved of his duties as president of baseball operations, effective immediately. Executive vice president and general manager Chris Young will assume oversight of all aspects of the Rangers’ baseball operations department.

Young was hired in December 2020 to work with Daniels and has been involved in all areas of the department since that time….


Daniels joined the Texas baseball operations department in 2002 and was appointed as the Rangers’ eighth General Manager on October 4, 2005. He was promoted to President of Baseball Operations in March 2013.

Rangers fire manager Chris Woodward in midst of fourth straight losing season

The Rangers fired Woodward two games shy of his 500th with the club and with a season remaining on his contract, two people with direct knowledge of the team’s decision told The Dallas Morning News. The Rangers’ interim manager is unclear.

The Rangers, on their way to their sixth consecutive losing season, are 211-287 in Woodward’s three-plus seasons. The .424 win percentage is the sixth worst in MLB in that time. Ironically, the firing came a day after perhaps the best series win of the season, in which the Rangers rallied on back-to-back days to win two of three from Seattle.

Ultimately, neither the first three seasons nor the weekend mattered much. Woodward and the Rangers overachieved to win 78 games in 2019, had their 2020 plans scuttled by the pandemic and two catastrophic injuries and embarked on a full rebuild in 2021. That was about the process, about building a championship culture. After ownership committed more than $500 million to free agents in the offseason, though, 2022 became more about results.

Kinsler takes winning swagger into Rangers HOF

Kinsler—who was inducted into the Rangers Hall of Fame on Saturday along with John Blake, the club’s executive vice president of public affairs—believed he could win. He believed Texas could win. That mindset, along with a roster full of talent, helped the Rangers secure their first American League pennant in 2010 and another in ‘11.

Fans tuning in from home might remember hearing fellow Rangers Hall of Famer Eric Nadel make the call in the 2010 AL Championship Series when Neftalí Feliz froze Alex Rodriguez with an 83 mph breaking ball to capture the pennant.

“Strike three called—the Rangers are going to the World Series!”

“The whole place was—it just felt like it was gonna come down,” Kinsler said. “With the fireworks and just the eruption of striking out Alex and the last out with Feliz. I don’t think I can compare that to any other sporting event I’ve been to. It was just electric. It was so loud, and it was an incredible moment.”

His contributions to the franchise go beyond playing a part in leading the Rangers to their first World Series.

Kinsler, the club’s 2006 Rookie of the Year, spent the first eight years of his career with the Rangers. He earned three All-Star nods with Texas and holds club records for a second baseman with a .273 batting average, 156 home runs and 539 RBIs over 1,066 games from 2006-13. He also ranks in the top 10 among all Rangers players in stolen bases (second, 172), runs (sixth, 748), extra-base hits (seventh, 428), walks (seventh, 462), home runs (eighth), doubles (eighth, 249), total bases (eighth, 1,908) and multihit games (eighth, 335).

Yankees’ Jose Trevino now thriving after ‘he got shafted’ with Rangers

Jose Trevino will not go there when asked about his old employer. The Yankees catcher, in the midst of a breakout season that’s starting to garner All-Star buzz, has no need to be anything but diplomatic and soft-spoken.

Isiah Kiner-Falefa, his teammate in the minors, with the Rangers and now with the Yankees, though, will.

“He got shafted, pretty much, in Texas,” Kiner-Falefa told The Post on Friday ahead of the Yankees’ game against the Astros. “For him to have this opportunity to do what he’s doing now, there was never a doubt for me thinking that he was gonna do this. It was more so questioning Texas’ decisions and what they were thinking, the whole process of signing those guys and bringing those guys in [ahead of Trevino] didn’t make any sense to me.”

Other than Trevino himself, Kiner-Falefa might be one of the only people who can say he saw this season coming from the 29-year-old. Trevino has burst onto the scene in New York, posting a .282/.336/.470 slash line, leading all catchers in Baseball Prospectus’ pitch framing metric and ranking second among AL catchers (min: 100 plate appearances) in both fWAR and wRC+.

Texas Rangers trade Willie Calhoun to San Francisco Giants for Steven Duggar

The San Francisco Giants acquired Willie Calhoun on Thursday, sending outfielder Steven Duggar to Texas for the outfielder who was the main return for the Rangers when they traded pitcher Yu Darvish five years ago.

It will be a homecoming for Calhoun, and a move he requested after being sent to the minors on May 1. The 27-year-old was born in the East Bay city of Vallejo and attended Benicia High School.

“We wish Willie the best in his opportunity with San Francisco,’’ Rangers president Jon Daniels said. “It’s a fresh start for him, as well as being close to home.’‘

San Francisco also receives cash in the deal.

Calhoun has spent all five-plus years of his major league career with the Rangers, playing 253 games and hitting .241 overall. He had a .136 average with a homer and two RBIs over 18 big league games this year. Just more than a month after he was optioned to Triple-A, he was designated for assignment and cleared waivers before being assigned outright to Round Rock, where he hit .217 with five homers in 22 games.

Jim Kaat: Will we finally get The Real Deal?

Kaat Said: Orientalism.

A couple of short stories about Asian pitchers and Irabu: I was announcing Yankee games in the mid-90s when I said over the air, “I wonder if we’ll ever see an Oriental position player in the Major Leagues?” Dion James was playing for the Yankees at the time, and told me about an exciting 19-year old named Ichiro Suzuki who had a chance to be the first. We all know that story. Big fan of Bernie Williams from watching Yankee games in Japan. Wears number 51 because of that.

So, I get a letter about a week later from an Asian baseball fan. Not a malicious letter but scolding me gently for referring to Asian players as “Oriental.” He said, “Noodles and rugs are Oriental, not people. We are Asians.” Fortunately for me, he put his phone number in the letter, so I called him.

We had a pleasant conversation and I told him I certainly didn’t intentionally say “Oriental’ as a slur or condescending remark. It was said innocently out of ignorance. He understood. I asked him if he would be watching the next game we televised. He said he would. He was a huge baseball fan and was complimentary of our telecasts on the MSG Network. I asked if he would please watch and listen in the top of the 4th inning. He said he would.  I took the opportunity to clear up the Oriental/Asian situation.

...So, I’lll be keeping a close eye on Yu Darvish and see if he is finally the one to be able to challenge and dominate our bigger, more powerful big league hitters. For his and the Rangers’ sake, I hope he does. It will be good for the game and the Rangers profit and loss statement!

National writer: If Rangers sign Prince Fielder, he’d be best hitter in baseball ‘by a mile’

Bob Nightengale force wind warning!

USA Today baseball writer Bob Nightengale joined KESN-FM’s Galloway & Co. last week to discuss the Rangers’ meeting with Prince Fielder. Here are some highlights:

On who will sign Prince Fielder:

I think Texas. Texas has never gone away from this thing. I think they want to put a stranglehold on the division and what the Angels just did with C.J. Wilson and Pujols, they answer back with this and once again they’re the favorites and could be the favorites for a long time. And I think if you sign Prince Fielder, you’re guaranteed to get three million fans, as well.

On how good Fielder could be with the Rangers:

The sky’s the limit. I think a minimum of 50 or 60 home runs. Not just in that ballpark, but with the protection in that lineup, surrounded by everybody. And you’ve got money coming off the books too, so it’s really going to help the Rangers when you’ve got Young coming off the books and those types of guys. But I think by pure numbers, he’d be the number one hitter in all of baseball by a mile. I think he would be Juan Gonzalez all over again.

How The Greg Reynolds Trade Is More Interesting Than You Think

How could it possibly be more interesting?

We’ll begin with the biggie. Reynolds, of course, was selected second overall by the Rockies in 2006. He was selected right after Luke Hochevar, and right before Evan Longoria. The Rockies’ selection of Reynolds was thought to be a reach, and it took the Rays by surprise. The Rays had another plan, assuming the Rockies would take Longoria. That plan? Andrew Friedman:

We had Evan Longoria first on our board…We thought Longoria was going to go two to Colorado, and we had cut a deal with Tim Lincecum, to take three….

Reynolds’ failures were magnified because the Rockies nearly drafted Long Beach State third baseman Evan Longoria before turning to the Stanford pitcher. At the time, the Rockies felt starting pitching was more of a priority with Garrett Atkins and [Ian] Stewart both in the fold.

The Texas Rangers won the rights to negotiate with star Japanese right-hander Yu Darvish by placing a record $51.7 million bid in a posting auction, sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Darvish’s team in Japan, the Nippon Ham Fighters, will accept the bid, which means the Rangers have 30 days to negotiate a contract with Darvish. If they cannot work out a deal, Darvish would return to Japan for the 2012 season and the Rangers would be refunded the posting fee.

Yahoo Sports: Passan: Darvish bidding process is a cloak and dagger affair

The deadline for bids on Darvish is today at 5 pm (eastern time).  Passan makes the whole process sound like executives have spent several years in Australia bulding up an immunity to iocane powder just for this moment.

The Texas Rangers, for example, have told rivals they’re cash-poor this offseason. A TV deal that will net them $80 million annually doesn’t kick in until 2015. The purchase price of the team for the ownership group – jacked up in an auction by Mark Cuban – wound up tens of millions of dollars higher than expected and sucked up the $90 million signing bonus Fox Sports delivered. And the TV contract itself wasn’t nearly as lucrative as Chuck Greenberg, the club’s deposed CEO, purported it to be.

To which one GM said: “Yeah, right.”

And another executive said: “They’re sandbagging.”
