Rangers Not Interested In Signing Brad Hawpe

Earlier on Thursday, Ken Rosenthal reported that the Rangers were one of the teams in on free agent Brad Hawpe. Now T.R. Sullivan is saying that's not going to happen:

The Rangers are not interested in Brad Hawpe, who was let go by the Colorado Rockies last week and is a free agent. Hawpe is a left-handed hitter and the Rangers lineup is already loaded with left-handed hitters.

A club official said the Rangers like the player but don't see him as a fit for their current needs.

Texas dropping out would seem to leave Tampa Bay and Boston as Hawpe's most likely destinations, although another suitor - like San Diego - could always emerge out of the woodwork.
