MILWAUKEE, WI - OCTOBER 1: Shaun Marcum of the Milwaukee Brewers pitches against the San Diego Padres during the game at Miller Park on October 1, 2012 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Target: Shaun Marcum, RHP
Type of move: Free agency
2012 stats: 7-4 in 124 IP with a 3.70 ERA, 109 Ks and 41 walks for a 1.26 WHIP.
Marcus spent more than two months on the disabled list in 2012 but still put up some solid numbers for the Milwaukee Brewers, and put up his fourth straight season of a sub-4.00 ERA — two with Toronto and two with Milwaukee.
The Rangers would likely plug him into the No. 3 or No. 4 spot in the rotation, which would be an upgrade if the latter. He made $7.73 million on a one-year deal in 2012 and has likely earned himself a pretty nice pay day considering his last four seasons.
