The Rangers are set to make a decision on Neftali Feliz's place in the pitching staff relatively soon. If he's a starter in 2012, they need to spend money on a reliable closer on the market.
If Neftali Feliz moves to the rotation, there are plenty of guys out there to replace him at closer.
It seems the Rangers are close to landing Heath Bell, but that likely won't be it.
Neftali Feliz blew his fifth save of the season on Tuesday, just in time for the trade deadline.
With the trade deadline rapidly approaching, the Rangers are key players in the rumor mill.
One thing's certain, the Rangers will be making trades in the next few weeks, but who will they be after.
Will the Bell toll for Rangers?
The Rangers need a good relief pitcher to shore up the bullpen for a stretch run. They have a couple of appealing trade pieces, but none bigger than Julio Borbon.
The bullpen has been the Rangers' weakest link all season but it's also a fairly easy problem to fix.
