The Rangers could emerge as a possibility for outfielder Andruw Jones, who became a free agent after working out a separation agreement with the Dodgers. "If someone wants to resurrect their career, Texas is the perfect place," an American League executive said, referring to the hitters' park in which the Rangers reside.

Jones, who hit .158 with three home runs and 14 RBIs in a disastrous season with the Dodgers after 11 productive seasons with the Braves, also received an inquiry from the Yankees, who have several center field candidates but no set starter. However, the Rangers may make more sense for him. Another plus for Texas is that it has one of baseball's most respected hitting coaches in Rudy Jaramillo.

The Rangers just announced that their star Josh Hamilton will be moving from center field to right field, which could possibly open an opportunity for Jones, who wouldn't require much in terms of pay, as he's already receiving $22 million from the Dodgers, with $17 million of that deferred as per the agreement.

The Braves also have considered bringing Jones back to Atlanta. But MLB.com reported that scenario appears unlikely at this point.
