It's a little late, but we caught up with one player who's role may be directly impacted by Cliff Lee's decision not to sign with the Rangers. Right-hander Tommy Hunter had no hard feelings about Lee's decision.
"That's baseball," Hunter said in a text. "I wish him the best. He had to do what he thought was best. It's part of the business. We'll be all right."
As it stands now, Hunter has moved up in the pecking order if the Rangers can't make a move for another starter. C.J. Wilson and Colby Lewis are locks, with Hunter and Derek Holland also likely starters. If the Rangers can't swing another move, the talk of moving Neftali Feliz back into the rotation also will gain more steam.
The silver lining though is that the move is finally done, and now the Rangers can move on and address their other needs once again.
