Rangers brass continued to pursue additions to its bullpen and outfield late Tuesday, meeting with agent Scott Boras about free-agent closer Eric Gagne and free-agent outfielder Corey Patterson. General manager Jon Daniels said earlier Tuesday that his preference would be to sign them to one-year contracts.
That's probably less of an issue for Gagne than Patterson, who could command more years and dollars because of the demand this off-season for center fielders. One outfielder the Rangers could land is Milton Bradley, who saw his season with the Padres come to a strange end when he injured his knee during an argument with umpire Mike Winters.
A major-league source said the Rangers have asked Bradley's agents, the Levinson brothers, for his medical records.
