08:11 AM ET 12.20 | This offseason, Texas has lost out on both Josh Hamilton and Zack Greinke, and big-name trade options have passed it by, too. They are trying, meeting with Edwin Jackson and A.J. Pierzynski, and Cody Ross as well, according to a report from Ken Rosenthal of Foxsports.com. The Rangers are also in on Nick Swisher, sources say, and they've discussed Adam LaRoche. ... They're said not to love Pierzynski, but their catchers for now are Geovany Soto, Eli Whiteside and Luis Martinez. Ross or Swisher makes some sense, but there are those in the organization who'd rather not block the progress of young Leonys Martin. LaRoche could be a fit at first base, but the current plan seems to be to move Ian Kinsler there to make room for Jurickson Profar at second base.
