The Texas Rangers are starting to finalize their bullpen. RPs Joakim Soria will serve as the closer, with RPs Neal Cotts, Pedro Figueroa, Jason Frasor and Alexi Ogando joining him. That leaves two spots open, and Ps Ryan Feierabend, Michael Kirkman, Daniel McCutchen, Seth Rosin and Shawn Tolleson battling down to the end of camp.

Texas Rangers RP Cory Burns has begun to stand out among the team's bullpen options this spring, making three scoreless appearances. "He's doing a good job," manager Ron Washington said. "He's got deception, changes speed and can move the ball in on left-handers. He can throw his fastball on both sides of the plate." Burns throws in the high-80s with a sidearm delivery but his changeup generates swings and misses nearly 40 percent of the time. RPs Joe Nathan and Jason Frasor are the only pitchers guaranteed spots in the bullpen. RPs Tanner Scheppers (hamstring) and Wilmer Font (shoulder) are both sidelined with minor injuries, and RP Josh Lindblom hasn't fared very well so far. Burns has intrigued the Rangers ever since they acquired him from the San Diego Padres.

Toronto Blue Jays impending free-agent RPs Jason Frasor and Brandon Lyon could be re-signed by the team. "But the bullpen is an area of depth. It's going to be important that we have some relievers that have a chance to be here for a while. Both guys we'll strongly take a look at. I don't know where that's going to go," general manager Alex Anthopoulos said. Lyon is seeking a multi-year deal but will likely have to take a pay cut from his $5.5 million salary.
