But the Rangers would get an extra Draft pick if Cruz signs with another team. Cruz is a free agent after being the Rangers' right fielder the past five years, but the club is having ongoing discussions with agent Adam Katz. Halladay announced Monday he was retiring, but the Rangers were interested if he opted to continue pitching. As morning broke Tuesday on the second day of the Winter Meetings, the Rangers appeared focused on making their best effort to see if they can sign either Shin-Soo Choo or Nelson Cruz. There may be lesser ways the Rangers could improve their offense, but right now they are looking hard at the two best free-agent outfielders on the market. Daniels said another meeting has not been scheduled, but said, "I'm sure we will [talk again] at some point." Choo is represented by Scott Boras, who recently negotiated a seven-year, $153 million contract for Jacoby Ellsbury with the Yankees.
