General manager Jon Daniels said that the Rangers are prepared to see C.J. Wilson head to either Anaheim or Miami, and have not met with agent Bob Garber today and have no plans to do so tonight.
But if he calls with news that Wilson won't re-sign with them, "I think we're prepared for that call."
Daniels said that he will take a meeting with Garber if one is requested, but for now it appears the Rangers will leave the winter meetings without acquiring a front-line starting pitcher. Daniels, though, said that there is plenty of time in the off-season for a trade to develop, but he is comfortable taking the current five in the rotation to spring training.
"The large part of the reason we made the move with Nathan and Feliz is because we know how hard it is to acquire that kind of guy," Daniels said. "All it does is reinforce the need to develop your own."
