... Esteban German, among a couple of others (per MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan):
The Rangers have out-righted pitchers Omar Beltre, Merkin Valdez and Eric Hurley off the 40-man. They have also out-righted infielders Andres Blanco and Esteban German.
Per Anthony Andro, the Rangers' 40-man roster has now been whittled down to 32 players.
I'm not sure I'm ever going to be able to get over the Rangers cutting Merkin Valdez.
If I were a betting man, I would bet on the Rangers trying to seek out a better utility option than Blanco (or German, obviously, whose defense is going to preclude him earning a legitimate opportunity at that gig) this winter.
Beltre is 30 years old, coming off a lost season torpedoed by surgery to correct spinal stenosis, and faces an uncertain future as he tries to establish himself as some kind of asset in the major league bullpen.
Hurley ... well, he's only 26, but I'm not exactly optimistic.
Merkin gets launched into the sun.
