10:25 AM ET 01.12 | The Texas Rangers are "making progress" on a contract with right-handed pitcher Jerome Williams, according to a baseball source. The deal could be consummated within the next couple of days, and would likely be a one-year contract. Williams' agents at Full Circle Sports Management declined comment because the negotiations are ongoing. According to the source, talks between the two sides intensified once starter Derek Holland injured his knee in a freak accident at his home. Holland is expected to miss a significant portion of the season, causing the Rangers to be aggressive in their search to replace him in the rotation.

QUOTE(#2):

Smart signing by Texas. I don't understand why more teams don't have backup options for the rotation.How many teams actually go through a season using only five starters? Even six?

there are alot of teams who keep 5 starters but they lack in backup plans,if the team carried 7 starters type their rotation shouldn't have any problem at all!!
