Concerns for Texas
January, 31, 2013

The Texas Rangers lost Josh Hamilton to free agency and it's possible they lose Nelson Cruz to suspension if the evidence suggested by the Miami New Times is ample and factual. We're looking down the road a bit here, because the process is likely to take some time, and there's certainly a chance the players' mentioned in the reports are not suspended. But if Cruz is, the Rangers could be in a little trouble when it comes to their lineup and outfield alignment, at least for the duration of a suspension, and the club has to plan for life after Cruz, anyway, since he's a free agent after 2013.
