Rangers Still Holding Off On Kyle Lohse, Kyle McClellan Out Of Running For Rotation Spot

With the loss of Martin Perez and other early developments, are the Rangers going to finally sign Kyle Lohse? -- Michelle W., Fort Worth, Texas

That is still not likely to happen, according to sources. Word is the Rangers' stance on Lohse has not changed and they are still determined to find a fifth starter from within the organization. At this point, Robbie Ross and Nick Tepesch have become the leading candidates, with Randy Wells also getting consideration. Kyle McClellan's lingering shoulder issues have all but taken him out of the running, but he certainly could end up in the bullpen. The Rangers are still confident that Colby Lewis could be back in the rotation by the end of May and, at this point, they have not increased their interest in Lohse.
