Rangers | Two battling for No. 5 rotation spot

A person familiar with the Texas Rangers' way of thinking claimed that the competition for the No. 5 spot in the starting rotation is a "dead heat" between SP Robbie Ross and SP Nick Tepesch. However, several unnamed officials believe the team may want to keep Ross in the bullpen, where he excelled last season (6-0 with a 2.22 ERA). General manager Jon Daniels said the team is open to acquiring a starter from outside the organization but expects to start the season with an internal candidate.
