Rosenthal on the Rangers 

Ken Rosenthal's latest Inside Dish identifies Orlando Cabrera and Jon Lieber as two free agents that the Rangers are interested in.

Cabrera I'd just as soon the Rangers pass on...he's a decent defensive shortstop who doesn't hit a lot. I'd rather see the Rangers get a high-OBP 2B who could hit in the second spot in the order.

Lieber, though, would be a very nice fit for the Rangers. Rosenthal puts his price at $5-6 million per year, and while Lieber is somewhat homer-prone, he's the type of control pitcher (less than 2 walks per 9 innings over his career) who pitches to contact that the Rangers generally look for.
