ARLINGTON -- The Rangers dropped two outfielders on Thursday by trading Daniel Robertson to the Angels and designating Jim Adduci for assignment. They also added a catcher, signing Chris Gimenez to a Minor League contract.
The moves may signal a shift in priorities. Finding outfield help may move above catching in the Rangers' plans, although it's still unlikely they'll make an expensive addition in either area. Starting pitching is still the Rangers' top priority, so don't expect free-agent outfielder Nelson Cruz to return to Arlington. It's not going to happen.
