Texas Rangers Reportedly Have Interest In Ex-Rockie Ryan Spilborghs

Although bigger fish like Yu Darvish and Prince Fielder undoubtedly remain at the top of the Texas Rangers' list of priorities, the team has interest in potentially acquiring Colorado Rockies free agent Ryan Spilborghs, according to CBSSports' Jon Heyman.

Spilborghs, who had been a very useful utility outfielder for much of his career in Colorado, had a very rough 2011, hitting only .210/.283/.305 compared to .272/.345/.423 for his career. His three home runs and 22 RBI were his lowest totals in both categories since his rookie season in 2006. Though the Rangers have one of the most talented outfields in baseball, two of their stars, Josh Hamilton and Nelson Cruz, are on the fragile side, and if Spilborghs did end up in Texas, he'd likely have a chance to prove that 2011 was merely a fluke.
