Rangers step up pursuit of left-hander C.J. Wilson

DALLAS—These winter meetings aren’t all about C.J. Wilson for the Texas Rangers. Seriously.

Club brass has hardly left the Hilton Anatole, much less their war-room suite, over the first two days as they hunt down team needs such as a utility infielder and another bullpen piece.

But while a rotation addition isn’t seen as a necessity, the pursuit of a starter, led by Wilson, remains the dominant Rangers storyline.

To that end, general manager Jon Daniels finally met with Wilson’s agent late Tuesday night as the Rangers began to put their best foot forward in their attempt to re-sign Wilson.

...

“He might get an offer he can’t refuse tonight, and vice versa we might get an opportunity we can’t refuse,” Daniels said before the meeting.
