Rangers Land Dempster, Keep Top Prospects
The Texas Rangers made it clear, they were not giving up top prospects Profar or Mike Olt. Many felt the Rangers had to give up one of them to land a top notch pitcher, turns out they didn’t. The Rangers land Cubs pitcher Ryan Dempster who is 5-5 with a 2.25 ERA this season. The Rangers did give up two minor league players, 1 A pitcher Kyle Hendricks and Christian Villanueva. The Rangers also stated pitcher Neftali Feliz will undergo Tommy Johns surgery, meaning the Dempster trade was a bigger deal than originally thought. Rangers also move Roy Oswalt to the bull pen, after his horrible start.
