Carl Crawford A Free Agent Possibility For Rangers, Too

A number of teams are known to have some degree of interest in free agent outfielder Carl Crawford, including the Angels, Red Sox, Yankees, and Tigers. Now, according to Jon Heyman, you can add another team to the list - the Texas Rangers.

The Rangers currently have Josh Hamilton, Nelson Cruz, David Murphy, and Julio Borbon in the outfield, but a Crawford/Hamilton/Cruz trio would make for the best outfield in baseball. Helping their case is that Crawford was born in Houston, and sure enough, Heyman says Crawford has the Rangers high on his own list, too.

The Rangers and Yankees, of course, are currently battling it out for free agent ace Cliff Lee. While the winner isn't expected to make any other big splashes, the loser could then chase hard after Crawford. For that reason, Crawford isn't expected to sign with anybody until Lee has a new home.
