Rangers still have interest in Lowell?
By Richard Durrett
As Jim Reeves has discussed the last few days, the Rangers continue to keep an eye on Mike Lowell. ESPNBoston.com's Gordon Edes has a story up talking about Lowell and how he's done this spring training.
The Rangers would like a right-handed bat that could play first base. But do they want to spend $3 million or can they on that (if that's still the deal...maybe they instead add in a prospect so Boston pays more of Lowell's salary)?
The Rangers could decide to go internal (Matt Brown) for that final spot, but they are also looking at external options.
