Rangers Reach Deal With Kyle Gibson

The Texas Rangers agreed to a three-year, $30 million deal with starting pitcher Kyle Gibson on Wednesday, according to a source. He'll join a rotation that will include veterans Mike Minor and Lance Lynn. The 32-year-old Gibson went 13-7 with 160 strikeouts for the Twins last season but posted a 4.73 ERA while giving up 26 earned runs in his last six starts after dealing with the effects of ulcerative colitis. Gibson was moved to the bullpen in September and continued to struggle to close out the season into the playoffs. The right-hander has made at least 25 starts in each of the last six seasons for the Twins and set career highs in strikeout rate (9.0 K/9) and average fastball velocity (93.8 mph) in 2019. If he can't keep the ball on the ground more in Texas, though, he could have a really tough season in 2020.

Edinson Volquez Wants To Keep Playing

The Texas Rangers and pitcher Edinson Volquez are working on a deal now that Volquez has changed his mind on retiring. Volquez made 11 appearances (four starts) for Texas last year and was not effective, posting a 6.75 ERA, 2.00 WHIP and 5.6 K/9 in his 16 innings. It's unlikely that he's making starts in Texas in 2020 if he's in the big leagues. Expect his deal to be a minor league pact. The veteran right-hander won't have much fantasy appeal if he's pitching for Texas next season.

Rangers Acquire Welington Castillo

The Texas Rangers acquired catcher Welington Castillo and international slot compensation from the White Sox on Thursday in exchange for minor league infielder/outfielder Jonah McReynolds. Castillo had a tough year with the Pale Hose, hitting .209/.267/.417 with 12 home runs and 41 RBI in 230 at-bats as the backup in Chicago. His best year came in 2017 with the Orioles when he hit .282 and slugged a career-high 20 home runs, but that's likely his high-water mark in the big leagues. Texas isn't guaranteed to keep Castillo around in 2020.

Shin-Soo Choo Undergoes Shoulder Surgery

Texas Rangers outfielder Shin-Soo Choo (shoulder) underwent a minor surgery -- an AC joint debridement -- on his shoulder that is expected to keep him out for six to eight weeks. "Its a relatively minor procedure with a timeline our medical staff believes will allow him to have a normal offseason. We expect hell be 100% before spring training," general manager Jon Daniels said. Choo was extremely productive in 2019, hitting .265/.371/.455 with a career-high 24 home runs in 151 games. He's set to make $20 million in 2020, the last year of his deal with Texas. Choo will likely be the primary designated hitter and still is fantasy relevant at this stage of his career, most notably in leagues that count on-base percentage.

Elvis Andrus Won't Opt Out Of Deal

Texas Rangers shortstop Elvis Andrus won't opt out of the $43 million and three years left on his current deal. The 31-year-old is making the right decision after hitting .275/.313/.393 with 12 home runs, 72 RBI and 31 stolen bases in 147 games for Texas in 2019. It was Andrus' first time going over 30 steals since 2011, but his power numbers were again down after slugging a career-high 20 round-trippers in 2017. Injuries will also become an issue as the shortstop ages on the wrong side of 30. Don't expect Andrus to return to the 20-homer mark again, so a decent batting average and some speed is what you can bank on with him moving forward.
