Rangers still in on Rodon, per report

MLB Rumors: Carlos Rodon is the top pitching target of the New York Yankees, but the Texas Rangers are still pursuing Rodon even after landing free agent starter Jacob deGrom, according to Jon Heyman.

Rodon is being courted by a large number of teams, with Heyman mentioning the San Francisco Giants — who Rodon pitched for in 2022 — as well as the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Baltimore Orioles, and the Minnesota Twins as teams that are after Rodon. The market for Rodon was expected to be more robust than the markets for deGrom and Justin Verlander due to Rodon’s younger age and lower expected annual average value on his contract.
