The Rangers Rotation Shuffle And Other MLBullets

The non-waiver Trade Deadline has passed, and ...

  • The biggest trade of the day had Ryan Dempster heading from the Cubs to the Rangers for a couple of prospects. The Dempster move was made all the more urgent - we learned only after the deadline - by a tear in Neftali Feliz's UCL, which will require Tommy John surgery. The Rangers had been hoping to get the righty back soon, but will now be without him until next year. Dempster will slide into the middle of the Rangers rotation at the same time that Roy Oswalt, who has been struggling, will slide into the bullpen, for now. It's a substantial rotation overhaul for a team that leads the AL West by three games, and is within a half game of the Yankees for the best record in the AL.
