Nick Cafardo with a couple Rangers' Blurbs: 5. Rich Harden, RHP, Texas — Nolan Ryan was warned by many that Harden wasn’t going to be much of an innings guy when he was acquired essentially to replace Kevin Millwood (traded to Baltimore) in the Texas rotation. So far, those experts are right. Harden has thrown 43 2/3 innings in nine starts, lasting only five innings or fewer in five of them. The Rangers bullpen is incredibly overworked, and suffice to say they are out there looking for a starting pitcher. Good luck. 6. Mike Lowell, 3B/1B/DH — A Rangers official told me last week he’d love to get Lowell in Texas. Based on Lowell’s performance to start the season, he would appear to be a good fit; the Rangers are looking for a righthanded hitter who can produce.

So, how do I value Vlad? 2010 was a down year, and not the kind where it was an obvious fluke. Sure, his batting average was down from his career norm—and this is especially bad for a guy who doesn’t walk much—but, he just looked old last year. Supposedly, he’s hurt enough that he will almost exclusively DH. Assuming his performance is somewhere between what it was in 2008 and 2009, I estimate Guerrero to be worth about $6.5 million next season.

Johnson, 31, was released by the Blue Jays on Sunday, and is expected to clear waivers because it is doubtful that any team will choose to assume his $3.275 million salary. Once he clears waivers, Johnson will be free to negotiate with any club. The Red Sox, Rays and Rangers are among the other teams interested in Johnson, sources say, but the Cubs have been the most persistent suitor in early discussions.
